DXD Admin from Singapore asked a question

What are the benefits and side effects of Laser on facial skin?

Never have i gone for any laser on my skin before and am interested to know whats the benefits of doing so.

Is it purely just to somehwat destroyed the outer layer of the imperfect skin to reveal the inner layer that is in better conditions? If so, wont it make the skin more vulnerable?

But most importantly, what are the implications and side effects of laser on the facial skin? Are there any known long term damages on skin?

Hi Audrey,

With regards to your questions:

Never have i gone for any laser on my skin before and am interested to know whats the benefits of doing so.

There are many different lasers in the market and each are built to address different skin conditions.  It can be used to brighten the skin, even out uneven skin tone, treat pigment, smoothen the skin and shrink pores, treat acne, treat acne scarring etc.  It really depends on the condition or effect that is sought.

Is it purely just to somehwat destroyed the outer layer of the imperfect skin to reveal the inner layer that is in better conditions? If so, wont it make the skin more vulnerable?

There are lasers that can “destroy” or ablate the outer layers of the skin. In so doing,...

Dear Audrey,

Thank you for your question on lasers. Essentially, lasers can be divided into 2 main categories, non ablative, aka pigment lasers, and ablative, aka resurfacing lasers.

Pigment Lasers: Good for skin tone issues

What are the benefits of pigment laser treatment?

  1. Lightening of your pigmentation (freckles, age spots, acne marks, tattoos) in general 60 to 90%. Pigments absorb the laser energy. These pigments gradually shatter into smaller fragments and are naturally cleared away by the body.
  2. Control of pimples and acne, reduced breakouts and improved oil control. Laser energy can aid in oil control via shrinking oil glands, eliminate P-acne, which is the bacteria that cause pimples and acne, and reduce further breakouts.
  3. Brightened, glowing and radiant skin. The laser helps even and lighten your skin tone and makes it brighter and...

Dear Audrey,

thanks for these questions!

There are many different types of LASER (Light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation). Mainly 3 types, the nonablative, subablative and ablative.Broadly speaking, it helps skin with wrinkles, pigmentation and scarring.

By doing ablative laser(not non-ablative), medically speaking, its using the principle of selective photothermolysis. There is removal of skin in a precisely controlled fashion with resultant minimal surrounding thermal damage. This results in well-organised skin cells with compact collagen and elastic fibers in the skin.

I would not say that the skin is more “vulnerable”, but will say its newer, younger and sensitive skin.

Nonablative laser (eg Nd-Yag laser) there is minimal downtime. Its used for superficial fine wrinkles, pigmentation and skin rejuvenation. Other non ablative laser can also be used for small fine blood vessels (telangiectasia).

Ablative laser (eg...
