It is advisable to avoid direct sun exposure during the healing period where possible.

Depending on what condition is being treated the appropriate after care is provided by your therapist. For the patient to achieve the best result possible, it is advised to give up smoking as this may result in diminished effects.

Any redness of the skin subsides within 24 hours, after which micro scabs will form. These should ideally be left to slough off by themselves. Some results may be seen immediately, but improvement continues for up to 3-6 months after the treatment. Clients should undergo 3-5 sessions for best results, followed by top-up sessions every few years.
