Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ’s)
How does the laser work?
During the treatment, your provider will customise the treatment settings to target the colour and depth of your skin concern. The laser light is converted into heat energy and absorbed only by the cells containing excessive pigment. This causes effective destruction while leaving the surrounding tissue undamaged.
What does the laser treat?
Whether it be unwanted redness or pigment on the face and body, Cutera laser has the capability to treat a wide range of skin concerns safely and effectively.
How long does the treatment take?
Treatment time varies based on the area of treatment – most patients are treated within 15 minutes however some treatments may take up to 30 minutes.
What can I expect following treatment?
Typically, you can return to your normal activities immediately following the treatment. Redness may be expected following the treatment, however it will resolve within a few days. Treated pigmentation and brown spots will darken following the treatment and slough off within 7-10 days.
How many treatments will I need?
We normally recommend a course of 3 sessions. The number of treatments will vary based on your concern. Your laser therapist will discuss a customised treatment plan during your consultation.
