IS THE TREATMENT SAFE AND HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?
The treatment is very safe and effective and takes around 15-20 minutes to treat a single area.
WILL I FEEL IT?

IS THERE ANY ‘DOWN TIME’ ASSOCIATED WITH THE TREATMENT?
Photorejuvenation is non-invasive and there is no ‘down time’ associated with the treatment. You may experience some darkening of the treated area. This is normal, and a sign the treatment was effective and will generally fade within 1 week. Most people can apply make up and return to work immediately afterwards.
It’s important you follow the post care instructions explained to you by your therapist following the treatment including the application of sunscreen.

Although you will likely see some improvement in your skin after your first treatment, most people require 3-5 treatments for optimal results with 3-4 weeks between treatments. You may need to return for maintenance treatments every 4-8 months depending on your skin care routine, exposure to sunlight and the ageing process.
