Our skin is one of the most delicate structures in our body, yet it is the most vulnerable to the ravages of time and the environment around us. Everyone’s skin has a limit to the intensity of treatment it can tolerate. This threshold limit varies so much from person to person, that it is impossible, to know for sure where this limit lies with each individual.
If the approach to treatment was to use just one treatment modality to address a certain type of skin problem, the only option available would be to increase or decrease the intensity of the treatment to achieve the desired result.
Such a one-dimensional approach of using one treatment modality and increasing its intensity in an effort to achieve better results will test the limits of skin tolerance and can result in unpredictable and sometimes damaging results. High treatment settings can also lead to pain and discomfort during and after treatment, as well as prolong recovery time, making the whole experience unpleasant for the patient.
