Most clients describe the sensation as like the snap of a rubber band on the skin, as the pulse of the laser light is applied through the laser hand piece. An optional topical numbing cream can be applied to reduce any discomfort.
Significant improvement is seen after first session, however, multiple sessions may be necessary to achieve optimal results. Treatments are usually spaced 4-6 weeks apart.
Prior to the actual treatment, you will be asked to remove your make-up or moisturizers, and in some cases, you may be asked to shave the area to be treated, so as not to interfere with the laser treatment. A topical numbing cream will be applied if desired, or if an extensive treatment is planned to minimize any temporary discomfort. Our technicians will review and assist with all pre-treatment requirements.
There is usually minimal to no pain following treatment sessions. Most often, side effects are mild swelling and redness. On rare occasions, blistering or bruising may appear. Your skin may be tender for several days, and you will need to use a mild, gentle cleanser, and most importantly, a good sunscreen, which your technician will be able to recommend from among one of our many professional skincare brands.
First, you will be provided eye shields to protect yourself from the laser during treatment. The treatment will begin with the provider guiding the handpiece over the treatment area. Depending on the care option we select, you may feel nothing during treatment or mild discomfort. Post treatment instructions will be provided to manage pain if necessary. You may also experience some redness and/or swelling a few days after at the treatment site but this typically resolves by the third day.
