HOW IS THIS PERFORMED?

We start by ensuring the area is thoroughly clean. We then use the laser machine to pulse light which may feel like a slight sting or pinch, similar to the snap of a rubber band which is emitted from machine’s hand piece. Most people tolerate the treatment well and don't require any local anaesthetic. Each treatment takes about 30 minutes. Clients can expect immediate long-term results which is usually achieved with the convenience of no down time.
