Do Home Laser and Light Devices Really Work
Posted on: October 27, 2015
As technology has moved into more areas of people's lives, skin care has been no exception. While in years past people seeking hair removal, skin rejuvenation, or acne treatment had to visit a dermatologist, in today's world they have the option of purchasing a variety of skin care products for use in their homes. But while the number of at-home products has skyrocketed in recent years, many people wonder if the products actually deliver the results in which they claim.
Unfortunately, the answer to this question is not clear-cut. Dermatologists, while generally agreeing that some at-home products can offer reasonable results, still point to the fact that many of these products have not been fully tested by the FDA and could have many unpleasant circumstances associated with them. For those people looking for an easy skin care routine, some at-home products can be beneficial. For example, many dermatologists now recommend the Skin Smoothing Laser, which is an at-home skin laser device designed to treat acne scarring. In addition to this device, doctors also feel they can safely recommend the Newa Skin Rejuvenation System to their patients. According to results published in the American Journal of Dermatology based on a study involving 69 patients, this at-home skin light device was shown to reduce wrinkles by an average of 36 percent within one month of treatment.
So while there are home laser and light devices that do offer positive results, many doctors still caution that the devices will need to be used for a long period of time in order to achieve results that can be obtained by visiting a dermatologist. And more importantly, doctors also urge those using these products to have realistic expectations and to consult a medical professional about any questions or concerns they may have about skin care.
