Laser Skin Treatment – Advantages and Disadvantages

Laser skin treatment is becoming increasingly popular as it can be employed for many types of common skin problems including unwanted facial hair, acne, sun damage, wrinkles and birthmarks.

The advantages of laser skin treatment far outweigh its disadvantages. It is good for people who want to get rid of unwanted hair on body and face. Although it does not guarantee complete and permanent removal of hair, it does help to slow down their growth and also works well for removing thick and coarse hair, especially on the face.

The procedure of laser treatment has also been found to be effective for the cure of acne and wrinkles. Laser can be used anywhere on the body wherever the problem is. It is also safe to be used on the face except too close to the eyes. Laser skin treatment is effective for many types of acne including whiteheads, blackheads and pimples.

If you suffer from a sun-damaged skin, laser treatment will prove to be very helpful if all other treatments have failed you. If you have decided to go through laser skin treatment you should be prepared to expect skin redness and even slight burns if high energy is used or required for the treatment of your condition.

One of the disadvantages of laser treatment is that it is quite expensive. Furthermore, many skin conditions would require multiple sessions for a complete cure. Although laser has been proven to be safe, some people still experience side effects like burns and skin rash. Topical medicines to reduce the effects of laser are prescribed to people undergoing this treatment.

In my opinion, you should first try other treatments for the cure of above-mentioned skin disorders before going for laser. Thermal treatment like the one provided by Zeno acne clearing device, over-the-counter topical treatments like creams and lotions, and oral medications are good alternatives of laser skin treatment.
