The most common areas treated are the face, neck and décolleté; however, these treatments can be used anywhere on the body.
How long does the treatment take?
A full face treatment can be completed in 15 minutes, although treatment times vary depending upon the size of the area being treated.
How soon will I see results?
Results can be seen after just one treatment, although three to six treatments at three week intervals are typically given in order to achieve optimal results.

Pigmented areas may begin to flake after a few days.
Cold compresses (not ice) and recommended skin care products may be useful to reduce swelling or discomfort. You may takeover-the-counter pain or anti-inflammatory medication. Hydrocortisone(steroid) cream may decrease any itching or skin irritation. Antibiotic ointment (such as Neosporin) may be used if skin is broken, to prevent infection.
Your skin will be fragile for 2-3 days. Use gentle cleansers, but do not rub the skin vigorously and avoid hot water during this time. Skin moisturizers may be used immediately and makeup can be applied if the skin is not broken.
