Laser Facial FAQ
Laser facial is a treatment that uses a longer wavelength of light (1064nm) to safely and effectively treat deeper layers of the skin without damaging the epidermis.
Depending on your skin concern, you may need an average of 4-10 treatments performed every 2-6 weeks. A refresher course may be performed every 1-3 months to maintain results.
After a laser facial treatment, you must ensure you use an SPF 30+ and avoid any excessive heat or sweating. After approximately 24-48 hours the use of active cosmeceutical products is recommend to ensure maximum results.
