provides a photofacial through the delivery of a comfortable light
During Treatment there will be a bright flash of
light from the lumecca that feels like a light elastic sensation.
Redness ans a slight warming of the skin are normal after treatment
and usually subsides within an hour. Over the next 24 - 48 hours
you may see a darkening of pigmented spots; in the week afterwards
the pigmented lesions flake off, leading to an evening out of skin
After treating vascular lesions you may see the
vein blanch and disappear or a colour change in the vessel which
dissipates after a few days.
