Lasers can make a difference
Compared to other options, laser treatment can be more effective:
|Typical Protocol||1-2x daily application||6-12 week prescription||2-3 laser treatments|
|Side effects||Severe blistering, itching, redness, dryness, or irritation||Liver damage |
But, not all lasers are the same. Lasers use different technologies and have different modes of operation, resulting in different levels of efficacy. Several recent studies question the effectiveness and operator safety of lasers which use first generation Nd:YAG technology.
