Frequently Asked Questions
A. Everyone’s skin is different, but clinical studies suggest that for most people, maximum results are realized in just 5 to 10 sessions. They are usually spaced 1 to 2 weeks apart.
A. Topical anesthesia is applied before the procedure and cold air is used on the treatment area during the procedure to minimize discomfort. After the treatment, most patients report a feeling similar to having gotten too much sun. It usually disappears after 1 to 3 hours.
A. During the first 24 hours after treatment, your skin may feel as though it is sunburned, and it will appear pink or red. You can wear make-up to reduce the sunburned appearance. Your skin will naturally bronze over the next week or two, and as you continue treatment, the sunburned-to-bronzed appearance will repeat. As with a sunburn, your skin will flake and exfoliate normally. Use a moisturizer to reduce the appearance of dry flakes.
A. Swelling and redness are the most common side effects from MedLite® C6 laser Toning. Any swelling is typically minimal and subsides within a day or two, and any redness typically fades within a few days. Other temporary side effects may include minor itching, dry skin, peeling or flaking, and a bronzed skin appearance. Dr. Jane will provide specific instructions about what to expect and how to minimize any side effects.
A. Wear sunscreen of SPF 30 or higher, avoid direct sun exposure for at least 3 weeks after your last treatment, and wear a wide-brimmed hat when you’re in the sun.
A. It depends on your particular condition and how you care for your skin. Once your skin is treated, continue to protect it as described above.
