What results can I expect?
You can expect to see a gradual decrease in overall redness, flushing and dilated capillaries. People with visible ageing from the sun can expect to see their skin become smoother with a decrease in fine wrinkles, reduction in pore size and fading of sun spots. Many people with rosacea see an improvement in breakouts and are able to decrease or discontinue their medication. Those with flushing and blushing should see that it takes more to make them flushed and even when they do flush the redness is less severe and settles much quicker than before. Usually patients also get rid of the discomfort or sensation that they feel in the cheeks as they flushing.
How soon will I see results?
After your first treatment your skin will feel smoother and will have a more even tone. These improvements are gradual and will be more visible after each treatment. Between three to five treatments are performed for optimal results. Some patients will benefit from additional treatment.
What are treatments like?
Each treatment takes about 20 minutes. A mild amount of discomfort can be expected during treatment but this quickly subsides. Immediately following a treatment, the skin may appear red and flushed and tiny capillaries and brown spots may appear darker. All of these changes gradually fade over a period of hours to a few days.
What should I expect after treatment?
Immediately after treatment, you can expect a mild sunburn-like sensation, possibly accompanied by some very minor swelling. This usually lasts 2-24 hours, and can be soothed with cold gel or ice packs.
