Commonly Asked Questions

Q:

On an average, how many treatments do you recommend? I have some sun damage on my cheeks... would this be a good treatment for me? Thanks!

Tresa L.  asked on  Jun 26, 2013

A:

This is an excellent question, and one which is difficult to address specifically due to a number of factors. First and foremost, pigmentation is a result of sun exposure. There is a condition in which pigmentation can spread which is a hormonal condition exacerbated by continued unprotected exposure to the sun. This can be minimized by clinical chemical treatments, however, this type of pigmentation usually requires a bleaching agent skin care regime at home as well for maximum results. I generally recommend that patients utilize both clinical treatments as well as a home care that will inhibit further melanin from spreading as well as to minimize the appearance of what already is visible. Consideration also must be given to the patient's ethnicity, lifestyle, age, thickness of the skin, extent of damage, etc., as to what protocol will work best. With 20+ years experience, I have learned that there is never one set answer or protocol for all patients. So I never advise anyone without looking at someone's full health history and viewing the skin in person. I can tell you that the best results will be seen with multiple treatments. I also do not make general recommendations as to the number of treatments nor the frequency of treatments as this needs to be addressed on an individual basis due to the patient's specific goals and needs. Not to confuse matters further, but there are a plethora of chemicals that can address pigmentation issues specific to skin type.

Q:

I am just a few days from reaching 65 (not too excited about that but must face reality) I am not looking or hoping to look like I am in my 20's because in you add I don't see anything about magic in you offer. But old age spots , large pores , the sun. The unwanted hair so basically a mess. My question, will my face be RED for days after a treatment (someone I know did treatments that looked like her face was burned for a week? Another question how often can treatments be done? (that will help me decide how many I want to buy since they expire in 180 days. Thank you.
