MYTH #1: You can reverse your summer tan damage, with Laser skin treatments.
Lena Sgambati, skincare expert from Just Good Skincare tells us that a myth she wants to debunk, is the perception that women can reverse summer sun damage, with a few treatments of IPL or LED Laser in fall.
“Don’t get me wrong, I love a sexy tan in summer just as much as any carefree spring-breaker does, but I’m not disillusioned into thinking that luxuriating my body in a bath of UV rays, can be undone with a few, expensive zaps of laser the following fall.”
Sgambati stresses that whilst light emitting therapies can help promote collagen production, reduce fine lines, wrinkles and improve acne they don’t reverse the deeper cellular impairments resulting from sun exposure.
“The cardinal beauty sins to forego sunscreen or spend a session baking your skin bronze in a tanning bed, cannot be absolved with a few beams of light.”
