Treatment description

Skin is covered in the appropriate gel and a series of short pulses of intense light are emitted from an applicator onto your skin. You may experience a warm sensation as the light is applied to the skin, but the treatment is gentle and should not feel uncomfortable. Immediately following treatment, you may experience some redness, depending on your customized treatment settings. The redness will usually disappear within a few hours. In most cases, makeup may be applied immediately, and daily activities can be resumed on the very same day.
