How does it work?
The delivery of thermal energy to the sebaceous gland also acts to partially “shrink” the gland, reducing sebum production and further acne outbreaks. The laser also speeds up cell activity, helping to clear pigmentation marks from old acne outbreaks. On specific settings it can also help to clear stubborn pigmentation from melasma and certain birthmarks as well as tattoos and unwanted hair growth.
Most patients describe the laser feeling like tiny warm pricks on the skin.
How long does each treatment take?
A treatment typically last between 15 mins, depending on the condition or treatment area.
Is there any pain or downtime?
There is no downtime involved with the treatment and you will be able to go about your scheduled activities immediately. Please note that you should always wear sunblock even if you will not be going outdoors. If you are concerned, you can limit your outdoor activities for the first week post treatment and avoid excessive sun exposure right after the treatment.
For certain patients, some greying/browning/darkening of the existing pigmentation may be expected before it fades off. This is normal and one shouldn’t be worried as it will fade off in time.
Are there any side effects?
For some patients, they may see some slight redness but it will go away within a few hours.
What results should I expect?
You can expect your pigment to fade and lighten. Most pigmentation, will not return after removal. However, due to sun exposure, aging and hormonal changes (mostly in women), new pigmentation can develop.
How many treatments will I need?
For best results, approximately 4- 6 treatments will be required.
