Hypopigmentation (loss of skin pigmentation), mild to moderate burns or blisters, temporary redness and follicular edema (small bumps like “goose bumps”) swelling and itching in treated area and bruising.
  • Clients who are pregnant should be aware that hormonal changes might alter the effectiveness of  cosmetic procedures.

Pre Treatment Care

  • Clients should come to their treatment with clean skin on the area to be treated.
  • Clients who are darkly tanned or sunburned should wait at least 2 weeks before being treated in order to avoid additional skin damage.

Post Treatment Care

  • Treated areas will “scab” and begin to flake off within 5-7 days
