Long Live Lasers: Why lasers are still the go-to treatment for clear skin



Medical technology moves fast. The industry is in a state of constant change and innovation. So how can it be that lasers are still the go-to treatment for pimple, pore and pigment concerns?


“Lasers are a quick and effective way to achieve the kind of complexion that doesn’t need makeup,” says Dr Chung Wan Ling, a GP Aesthetic doctor at IYAC. “Lasers are quick, easy and improve many of the most common skin problems, from open pores, scars and pimples to pigmentation, uneven skin and redness due to spider veins. Plus, most lasers don’t have any downtime. This is important to people with busy schedules.”


So how do lasers work exactly? While treatments like facials keep the skin hydrated, lasers are all about treating damage. Damage can be both visible (such as acne and pigment) and hard to see (such as textural issues and forming fine lines). Lasers direct short, concentrated pulsating beams of light at irregular skin to remove skin layer by layer. In effect, lasers target and vaporize skin damage without harming surrounding skin, making the technology as relevant today as it was a decade ago.


The term “lasers” doesn’t just refer to one device. There are many different types of lasers on the market, each that treat different problems at varying efficacy levels. IYAC offers Revlite, Dual Yellow, BB and Pearl lasers in a variety of treatments. IYAC laser treatments vary from mild (no downtime) to moderate and intense (up to five days of downtime).


If you find these options confusing, no need to worry. The good news is you don’t need to know exactly which laser is right for you. (That said, if you have a passion for medical aesthetics, research away!) Confusion about lasers is exactly the reason IYAC created the Laser Circuit, a combination of laser and light therapies customized to address your specific skin issues. The IYAC doctors access your skin and recommend which lasers can help achieve your goals. This way you have access to every laser necessary to achieve your goals in one simple treatment.
