How It Works
This treatment uses light energy at a fixed wavelength to target lesions in the skin. The light energy heats up the lesions, thus destroying them. This light treatment is ideal for Rosacea, general redness, and brown lesions in the skin.
What to Expect
During the treatment, your eyes will be protected by safety shields or glasses. You may briefly feel a rubber band snap or warm sensation as the light is absorbed by the targeted areas. Your procedure may take a few minutes to half an hour depending on the size of the area to be treated and the type of procedure performed. Your provider will discuss all of your options with you.
This is a non-invasive and gentle procedure with virtually no downtime. In most cases, you will be able to return to work, apply makeup, and resume most of your activities right away.
You may experience some redness that should resolve within a few hours. For some pigmented lesions you will see a darkening of the treated areas followed by fading and flaking off at a later stage. Your treated skin will feel smoother, fine wrinkles and pores will be less noticeable, and sun spots or uneven pigmentation will fade. Results depend on your condition, the number of treatments and the area treated. Your provider will provide you with complete information about the post treatment care and results.
Most patients require 2-5 treatments spaced 2-4 weeks apart to attain the best results.
