Anti-Aging Home-Use Lasers – Are They Worth the Money?

Home use lasers are manufactured to be safe enough that people won’t be constantly burning themselves or causing pigment problems with them. The manufacturers make them to be used by potentially thousands of people. This also means that anti-aging home-use lasers have very little power. Otherwise, people would hurt themselves with it and sue the company, clearly not a desired outcome.

Pros and Cons of Anti-Aging Home-Use Lasers?

So, if you are content to spend a moderate amount of time and money to see little or no visible results, you may be fine to buy it. You would be buying it mostly in the hope that it will have a preventive effect. There is some data/science to support this concept. You’d have to use it consistently over many months/years to know if this was actually a good strategy for you as an individual. It’s also possible that there may be adverse side effects to these devices with daily use, that just haven’t come to light yet.

One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes! I have handpicked some of what I consider to be the best skin care products, and offer them for sale on SkinTour's shop. This is based on my team and I's testing and research at our clinic. Many of the products are in my own regimen. What could be better than using skin care products a dermatologist uses?!
