How does it work?
Discomfort varies on the depth of the treatment. For your comfort during the treatment, we apply a topical anesthetic. After the treatment most patients describe the post-procedure feeling as a bad sunburn. Please also follow the instructions for all other prescribed pain medication is needed post treatment. We also recommend pain or relaxation medications prior to treatment therefore you will need to have somebody drive you home after treatment.
Typically one laser treatment is recommended. Occasionally, we may need to do more than one treatment to optimize results. This is especially true for acne scars.
