Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT AREAS CAN BE TREATED?
Virtually any part of your body with sun and age spots can be safely treated. The face, chest, shoulders and arms are the most popular areas for treatment because they have typically had the most sun exposure. Discrete brown spots, excessively ruddy complexions and skin densely covered with freckles respond well to treatment.
WHAT DO TREATMENTS FEEL LIKE?
When the handpiece is placed on your skin, it will feel cool and comfortable. When the pulse of light is delivered, you may feel a mild, brief pinching sensation.
HOW LONG WILL THE TREATMENT TAKE?
The actual treatment will only take a few minutes. And, since there is no need to apply gel or any topical anesthetic, your total appointment time can easily fit within your lunch hour.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?
Typically, one or two treatments are sufficient to see significant results. Additional treatments may be required for very large or dark spots, densely freckled areas, or excessively sun damaged skin.
WHAT HAPPENS AFTER THE TREATMENT?
Immediately following the treatment, the spots may start to darken. You may notice a slight reddening of the surrounding skin. This typically subsides within a couple of hours. Over the course of the next one to three weeks, darkened spots will fade and flake off. Your mottled complexion will clear.
