If you have never experienced a skin rejuvenation laser treatment, you may have a few conflicting ideas on what to expect, the anticipated results and whether or not you are eligible for treatments. While it is completely normal to feel unsure or a little uneasy about undergoing a laser treatment, there have been significant breakthroughs in laser technology in recent years, making it one of the most popular options for non-invasive skin rejuvenation.

Below, we dispel 3 of the most common misconceptions that might be stopping you from exploring the world of laser treatments.

Myth 1: Laser Treatments Only Treat Skin Ageing Concerns

One of the most common myths surrounding skin revitalisation treatments is that they are only for those who are concerned about skin ageing and wish to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and decreased skin laxity and density. However, PicoSure skin laser treatments are proven to treat and improve the appearance of a number of common skin concerns, such as surgical and acne scarring, pigmentation and pigmented lesions, sun damage, enlarged pores and an uneven or textured skin surface. The FOCUS Lens Array specifically works to stimulate the skin to produce new elastin and collagen, which in turn revitalises, rejuvenates and renews the appearance of your complexion.

Myth 2: Laser Treatments Are Painful and Require a Significant Amount of Downtime

Although the thought of laser treatments may be associated with a painful procedure resulting in inflamed or irritated skin, this is not the case. PicoSure skin revitalisation treatments offer a gentle and non-invasive solution to renewing your complexion, with most patients only experiencing minimal discomfort and slight redness post-treatment. There is no downtime necessary, meaning that you can return to your usual activities immediately after the treatment.

PicoSure 755nm wavelength and FOCUS Lens Array deliver energy that works with the body, unleashing natural cell signalling processes to stimulate new collagen and elastin to create brighter, healthier, younger-looking skin. Research has shown that the 755nm is the most optimal wavelength for skin and has been proven as the most effective wavelength to revitalise your skin without any damage or injury to the surrounding tissue.

Myth 3: Laser Skin Treatments Are Only For Women

While men and women’s skin are incredibly different due to a number of factors, this does not mean that men cannot experience laser skin treatments too! In general a man’s skin tends to be thicker, tougher, have more hair follicles, produce more sebum and will often be more rugged due to shaving and time spent outdoors – this makes men’s skin the perfect candidate for skin rejuvenation treatments. PicoSure laser treatments can help to target a number of skin concerns experienced by men, such as helping to diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, acne scarring, uneven skin texture, pigmentation and more.
