How Do I Set My Goals if I’ve Decided to Have Laser Treatment?

Laser Treatment Success: The Collaborative Journey

On the practitioner’s side, various factors affect the delivery of laser treatment care, including communication style, training, experience, time constraints, empathy, and teaching skills. Similarly, on the patient’s side, basic health habits, existing health conditions, the ability to follow instructions, motivation to improve, and psychological health all play a role in determining the effectiveness of treatment. It takes a good mix of both sides for healthcare to go right. It takes a good practitioner and a good patient. All too often, patients expect this relationship to be too lopsided and forget they’re responsible for how successful their treatments are.

Setting Realistic Expectations: The Key to Cosmetic Success

A crucial part of having a successful procedure is understanding what a procedure can and cannot do for you and having the correct expectation for your treatment. This process begins with an excellent practitioner who will take the time to discuss a treatment thoroughly and answer all your questions, as well as provide you with all appropriate treatment options. However, it is then your responsibility to understand and process that information and form realistic goals and expectations for your procedure.

Sometimes, this isn’t easy. We live in a society with a quick-fix mentality. We want what we want when we want it. But medicine doesn’t always work like that. Many problems, even cosmetic ones like acne and melasma, are chronic and incurable. And if you don’t understand this before you start treatment, then you’re setting yourself up to be very frustrated and unhappy.
