5 Misconceptions About Laser Pigmentation Removal

July 17, 2020



Is skin pigmentation bothering you?



You might have considered going through laser pigmentation treatment to get rid of those unwanted freckles and spots effectively.



For those who are interested but afraid of going through laser pigmentation removal, this post will answer some of the most common misconceptions about laser treatments.





5 Most Common Misconceptions about Laser Treatments:


Misconception #1: Laser treatment is painful

Laser treatments cause very little pain and it’s manageable for most people.


Patients often describe the feeling during a laser procedure as a tingling sensation or the feeling of a rubber band snapping gently on the skin.


If you are worried about the pain, numbing cream can be applied to the skin prior to the treatment to minimise discomfort during the procedure.




Misconception #2: Your skin gets thinner and weaker after each laser treatment


This is untrue. Most lasers nowadays are non-ablative lasers used for pigments and rejuvenation.


Pigmentation lasers at Healthsprings do not burn off any skin layers.


The treatment is safe for the skin when the rights settings are used. Hence it is important to look for qualified, trained doctors.


Our laser treatment helps stimulate collagen production and gives you firmer skin after the treatments.





Misconception #3: One session of laser treatment will clear all pigment


Typically after one session, you will notice some improvement on your skin.


However, most of the time, a treatment plan is required for non-ablative lasers to produce satisfying results. This is a trade-off that comes with a low downtime treatment.


Once the treatment plan is completed, the results are usually long-lasting if the skin is well taken care of.



Misconception #4: The results of laser skin treatment is permanent

Usually, pigmented lesions or spots that have been removed will not return after your laser treatments.


However, there are various factors that can stimulate new hyperpigmentation e.g. exposure to UV, ageing, hormonal factors.


Laser pigmentation removal treatments do not prevent new hyperpigmentation from occurring. Hence, it is important to take care of your skin after the treatment with sunscreen and occasional maintenance session of laser treatment.




Misconception #5: My skin will be flawless and baby-like after laser treatment

It is undoubtedly that laser skin treatment can treat a lot of different problems e.g. clear pigmentation, reduce spots and wrinkles.


However, not everyone can achieve flawless, baby skin after laser treatment.


Based on individual’s skin condition, we usually recommend a combination of different treatments e.g. skinboosters, Infini micro-needling, skin tightening treatments for well-rounded results.





Am I A Good Candidate for Laser Skin Treatment? 

Talking with your doctor before undergoing any sort of aesthetic treatment will give you peace of mind and clear knowledge of what is ahead.
