What areas of the body can be treated?
The laser can be used to rejuvenate many areas of the body including the face, neck, chest and back.
What can I expect after treatment?
After treatment you may experience mild to moderate redness, which is common and should resolve itself within a couple of hours.
For the more aggressive treatment, skin gets darker to the point of scabbing and then flakes off with 5 to 7 days of treatment date.
When will I see results from the Q-Switch laser treatment?
Patients will feel a difference in the texture of their skin after the first treatment with the Q-Switch laser. Because collagen takes time to grow, you will continue to see improvement over the next few weeks.
After 4-6 sessions, you’ll notice a dramatic improvement, including smaller pores, more even skin tone and softer texture.
Many patients choose to have monthly or quarterly touch-up sessions to maintain their results.
How long do the results last?
Results will vary from patient to patient.Continued aftercare including sunblock and adequate skin care products will be important as well as maintenance treatments to help sustain the results.
