Before Treatment: Sun Protection is mandatory. We cannot treat recently sun-exposed or tanned skin. When your melanocytes (pigment producing cells) have been recently "turned on" by sun exposure, there is risk of a suboptimal result. Your face will be cleansed beforehand and photos will be taken. No numbing is necessary.
During Treatment: Safety goggles will cover your eyes. The laser will gently build up heat under the skin to stimulate circulation, new collagen growth, and pore size reduction.
Immediately After Treatment: Your skin may feel warm, and may be slightly pink for 1-2 hours. Makeup can be applied immediately, and the skin often has a nice healthy glow afterwards.
Days following treatment: The slightly pinking of the skin should fade in 1-2 hours. There should be no downtime and patient often report a nice healthy glow for several days after treatment.
Months following treatment: Usually 6-8 treatments spaced 2+ weeks apart will achieve the optimum result. Results build slowly over time, without downtime. Collagen growth happens for several months after the treatment.
