Your procedure may take as little as a few minutes depending on the size of the area to be treated and the type of procedure performed. Your clinnician will discuss all of your options wit hyou including the benefits, risks, and what to expect.

 

What should I expect after the treatment?

You may experience some redness that should resolve within a few hours. Consult your clinician if it does not. For some spots, you will see a darkeining of the treated areas followed by fading and flaking off at a later stage. Results depend on your skin type, the number of treatments, and the area treated.

This is a non-invasive and typically gentle procedure with virtually no downtime. In most cases, you are able to return to work and resume most of your activities immediately.
