A treatment can last between a few minutes to an hour, depending on the area and the problem to be treated.
Some patients may feel a slight discomfort with each laser pulse, sometimes described like the snapping of a rubber band on the skin. This discomfort resolves quickly and is minimized by the patented Dynamic Cooling DeviceTM (DCDTM) or air cooling. For some patients, a topical anesthetic may be used prior to treatment. Be sure to discuss this with your practitioner.
The number of sessions depends on the treatment you require and the condition of your skin. For hair removal, multiple treatments are required.
Hair removal patients should avoid plucking, electrolysis or waxing for six weeks prior to treatment. If you have a history of herpes simplex virus, prophylactic antiviral therapy may be prescribed. Skin should be clean-shaven and thoroughly cleansed, removing any makeup, creams, oils, topical anesthetics or self-tanning products before laser treatment. Do not expose the intended treatment area to sunlight or tanning booth light prior to or immediately after treatment. Apply sunblock (SPF 30 or above) before treatment.
A cool compress or gel pack may be applied for comfort following your treatment. Any redness or swelling should resolve within a few hours.
Absolutely, yes! Not only is spf a must for everyday use it is especially important to use if you are doing any kind of treatment in clinic. You should have a minimum of spf 30 and should reapply every 2 hours.
