How many treatments do you recommend and how long between them?
We typically recommend 5 - 6 treatments, depending on the darkness and growth cycle of the hair. We typically recommend at least 4 - 6 weeks between treatments to catch the next hair growth cycle.
Can you treat blond, white hair, gray or red hair?
The laser technology has not been developed yet to address lighter pigmented hair.
How many treatments should I plan for?
It depends on what skin condition we are addressing:
for specific pigment areas and spider veins, 1 - 2 treatments
for Rosacea and redness, 4 treatments
for Skin Tags, we treat by liquid nitrogen, excising, or one laser treatment.
How many treatments do you recommend?
We typically recommend 4 treatments, depending on the depth of pigment and wrinkles. We typically recommend at least 4 weeks between treatments to allow full recovery of your skin.
How much down time can I expect?
clients normally experience 3 - 4 days of pink skin. Usually the day after treatment, your skil will experience mild swelling. Thursday is a popular day to schedule treatment so that your skin will be back to normal on Monday. Dryness may last several weeks. For most people, their acne clears up. After that, your new beautiful skin emerges. We recommend Neocutis for fast skin repair and Jane Iredale make-up to hide blotchiness.
