What areas can be treated?
All skin areas can be treated. Popular areas are the face, neck, chest and legs. Discuss your needs with your physician.
How long will it take to recover?
Your healing time will depend upon your actual treatment. You may experience some redness after the procedure. Your physician will answer questions about temporary changes on your skin color and how they may be camouflaged.
What will happen during the procedure?
Your eyes will be protected with safety shields or glasses. Laser energy will be delivered precisely to the area of your skin being treated. You may briefly feel a warm or hot sensation as the laser pulses are absorbed by the unwanted vessels. Your procedure may take a few minutes to half an hour depending on the size of the area to be treated.
Will it be uncomfortable?
There should be little to no discomfort, however it varies from patient to patient and depends on the treatment. There is no need for anesthesia and your physician will discuss your options to properly manage any discomfort from the treatment. There should be no prolonged post treatment discomfort.
What should I expect after treatment?
Your skin will be pink temporarily but it will resolve over time. Any vessels denatured by the laser will be reabsorbed by your body over a period of time in a natural cleansing process. Most small capillaries will become invisible almost immediately, since they will no longer contain blood.
What aftercare will I need?
It is important to follow your physician’s instructions. You may be given some skin care products and instructions on how to use them. Your skin will be sensitive to ultraviolet light, and you must avoid direct sun exposure. You need to fully cover your skin or use a good sunscreen whenever you go outdoors.
