LASER TREATMENT OF AGE SPOTS and SKIN LESIONS
How many treatments can I expect?
It may take several treatments to get the desired results. We say to expect up to 5 but in most cases it can take less and in rare cases not help at all.
What does it feel like?
It may feel like a rubber band snap, but is usually very minimal.
What can I expect after treatment?
Usually within approximately 20 minutes you will see a slightly darker color of the area treated. It can take up to 3 weeks for the discoloration to slough off. It may feel like a slight sunburn sensation for a few days following the treatment. In some cases it may look like a superficial burn and in rare cases a blister may appear. It is very important to follow all post treatment instructions and stay out the sun for at least a 4 week period following treatment to avoid irritation to the treated area. If you cannot avoid sun exposure then a sunscreen of no less than 30 SPF should be used.
How do I prepare for the treatments?
It is very important for you to stay out of the sun as you could cause discoloration in the area treated. We recommend 4 weeks prior and through out the treatments series. If you cannot avoid sun exposure you should use a minimum sun screen protection of 30 SPF or higher.
