Your dark spot removal session will last 10 to 15 minutes in total. Our doctors will begin by applying a cooling gel to your skin, after which a series of pulses from the laser will be directed into your skin.
Prior to receiving a dark spot removal treatment, you should:
- Avoid sun exposure and tanning for several days
- Do not take antibiotics or Accutane for at least three weeks before your session
- Do not apply makeup or lotion on the area the day of treatment
After your session you skin may appear slightly red in the treated area. Keep the area clean, and be sure to use sunblock with a minimum of 30 SPF daily.
