We have cooling devices to cool the skin so you don’t feel the heat from the laser as much. Candela’s Dynamic Cooling Device™ sprays Cryogen Gas into the skin before the laser to make the treatments as comfortable as possible.
However, expect there to be a slight discomfort but nearly all our clients find it tolerable.
After the treatment you can get temporary erythema (redness) or temporary per-follicular oedema (swelling/lumps)
In some rare cases, people have suffered from temporary blistering and scabbing.
Any initial reactions should settle down within a 48 hours period.
Aloe Vera Gel and cool/ice packs should be used to reduce irritation.
There is also a very slight risk of hyper- and hypo- pigmentation. This is the darkening and lightening of the skin, which is why it is important to protect the skin from the sun using medical grade sunblock of SPF 30 or above.
