Why are there so many reviews saying laser ruined their skin?

It doesn't seem scientifically possible but there are many reviews on here claiming that non-ablative lasers have permanently removed collagen from people's faces. Can you clarify if this is a true risk??

Lasers Actually Help With Facial Rejuvenation (+ Microneedling/prp, Sculptra)

This is tough to answer, however I will say that lasers usually work best in combination with other treatments, like Sculptra to build collagen production and are a large part of what I use for facial rejuvenation. I usually combine lasers with microneedling/prp for great results. It all depends on the individual person and their goals. See an expert. Best, Dr. Emer
