The patient will be red and experience a sunburn like sensation for the next few hours. Any brown spots the patient has will look immediately darker and become even darker over the next day or two. Most of the redness will subside in less than 24 hours of the treatment. The patient will experience micro-crusting and possibly mild superficial blistering. In 3 to 4 days after the treatment the dark brown will start to flake off. By 7 to 10 days after the treatment the skin will be done flaking and a more even toned, brighter complexion can be noticed. Make-up can be applied immediately following the treatment unless otherwise instructed. All post treatment instruction will be discussed with the laser technician before the patient leaves.
