How does it work?
This is a combination treatment. Laser light is absorbed by pigmented areas where it is converted to heat, causing a breakup in the pigment. In broken capillaries, the laser energy is absorbed by the pigment in the blood and collapses the unwanted vein. For wrinkles and skin toning, the laser stimulates collagen growth. Dr. Rafael Diaz-Yoserev will analyze your skin condition and help you select the most effective treatment for you.
When will you see results?
Effects are cumulative. After the first treatment you will see improvements to the broken capillaries, small facial veins and some pigmented areas within a few days. Other improvements such as wrinkle reduction and toning will be more subtle and may take one to three months. Friends may suggest that you look more rested. With each subsequent treatment, subtle changes will accumulate until you have achieved the improvement you desire.
How often can you have it done?
A series of 5 treatments, spaced two to four weeks apart, is our standard recommendation. Occasionally, more treatments may be needed for certain individuals or conditions. Periodic maintenance treatments may be prescribed for optimal, lasting results.
What can you expect immediately post-treatment?
Immediately following the procedure you may experience some redness, swelling, and/or a slight darkening of pigmented areas. the redness and swelling usually dissipate within one to three days however, darkened pigmentation may persist and peel lightly for up to one week. Make up can be applied to the treated area immediately, if necessary. Additionally, hair growth may be impaired in the treated area, although it is not the intended purpose of this particular treatment. It is extremely important to apply a moisturizer with SPF30 sunblock and avoid sun exposure on a daily basis to prevent additional sun damage.
How long does it take?
This treatment takes approximately 30-60 minutes. Prescribed topical anesthetic should be applied 30 minutes before the treatment time.
