Swelling varies from person to person and may last from 2 to 4 hours. Aftercare will be covered before and after your procedure, along with an aftercare sheet to take home. The treated area will appear extremely intense and thick immediately after the procedures. This will lighten up in the next 5 to 10 days. Treated area will continue to soften until it settles.
*On the average it takes about 28 days for your skin to fully heal after any trauma, but some individuals could take longer.
Most treatments are perfect for all ages and skin types. Fading can begin to occur after 1 to 3 years and Color Boosts/Refreshers are required.
