Laser treatments are increasingly popular and therefore it’s essential to know what technology is out there and suitable for each skin type. According to our experts, there are two primary laser types: ablative and non-ablative. Ablative laser is considered more invasive and removes the top layer of the skin to help treat ageing concerns, scarring and discolouration. At the same time, a non-ablative laser works by heating the underlying skin tissue to produce new collagen, all without causing damage to the skin’s surface. This type of laser is used to treat ageing concerns and pigmentation.
