Unlike with other treatments, such as Laser or IPL, there are no known side effects. The patient suffers no bruising, scarring or similar and there is no downtime – many people go back to work or shopping immediately after treatment. In addition there is no requirement to avoid sunlight, as with other treatments, although we do recommend sun protector as general skin care advice. Other treatments require patients to avoid the sun as the treatment burn and thin the skin making it very vulnerable to the sun. Our treatment doesn’t burn and is very accurate, most clients feel a little pinching sensation at the most.
