Your skin may be moderately pink to red with minor swelling similar to that of a sunburn or windburn, which typically subsides over 24 hours. We recommend avoiding sun exposure immediately following treatment and using sun block on a daily basis. You will notice an immediate glow while the tone and texture continue to improve as new collagen continues to be laid down for approximately three to six months after treatment.
A series of at least three to four treatments spaced about four to six weeks apart are recommended. A yearly maintenance treatment will help maintain results.
