How many treatment sessions are required?
This can vary depending on skin and severity of the condition, but generally 6 sessions are required to achieve a good result. After that, the patient may need maintenance every few months depending on their skin type.
Do I need to use topical anesthesia? What about gels?
No. Anesthetics and cooling gels are not needed with LightPod lasers, because 650-microsecond technology makes it uniquely pain-free. However, some buildup of heat will be experienced and slight pinching may be felt while using the 2mm spot size. This unique benefit saves time, cost and mess by eliminating gels and sprays required by other lasers that cool the skin during treatment. Also, this can increase revenues through a higher rate of client retention – with other lasers and IPL devices, clients often abandon treatment after just one or two sessions due to intolerable pain.
Is it painful?
No, there is just a mild, very tolerable sensation of heat. This is one of the key technical breakthroughs of Aerolase technology! LightPod lasers have set a new standard for virtually pain-free treatment, even on darker skin types, thanks to 650-microsecond technology.
When can I expect to see an improvement in my condition?
Improvement may be seen anywhere immediately after the treatment to a few weeks after the first treatment. Typically a session every month for 6 months is required. Patients should notice considerable results during the entire course of treatments and for another 6 months after the treatment due to the constant growth of new collagen and elastin. It is important to realize that there is no way to stop the skin’s aging process, so further treatment may be required in the future.
Is it permanent, or will my spots and laxity come back?
While your skin will appear firmer, more full and both red and brown spots will diminish, the skin will continue to age so maintenance treatments may be required in the future. To reduce the signs of aging it is important to wear sunscreen, which will slow any increase of wrinkles and sun damage.
Can it be used on dark skin?
Actually, LightPod lasers are the safest laser in the industry for darker skin types or tanned skin. This is because of650-microsecond technology, which essentially eliminates treatment pain while minimizing the chances of hyper and/ or hypo-pigmentation. Patients with skin types IV-VI should not be treated with on the face with high power using the 2mm lens as the risk of hyper and/or hypopigmentation is increased.
