Immediately after treatment your skin will be a little red and will feel a little tight – as if you’ve been in the sun. This should subside over a few hours.
Age spots, marks and some sun-induced freckles may go dark – these will stay dark and turn to dust and fall off over the days that follow. Veins too may be darker than pretreatment, but this too is normal and they will start to fade as they are absorbed by the body.
You will be advised to wear sunscreen (min SPF30) daily and you will be able to wear makeup (mineral only foundation-powder preferred) once your skin has settled down, generally after a couple of hours.
Rarely, swelling, blisters and bruising may occur. If this does, our medical team is on hand for advice.
