This is a laser treatment to improve the appearance of unwanted freckles, sun spots and age spots gently and predictably.

After your initial series, further treatments to maintain your results are required. There is no downtown.
They both work in a similar fashion as they both stimulate natural processes such as collagen building to promote vibrant and healthy looking skin. You can have a more youthful appearance by treating conditions such as aging, fine wrinkles, sun damage as well as acne scars, and rosacea. It has little to no down time and works best for rosacea, active acne, and facial redness.
Microneedling has a down time of about 24 hours and works best for sun damage, acne scars, enlarged pores and fine wrinkles. Many patients begin to see results within the first few days after their initial treatment. Results will continue to become visible over the next few months as your skin continues to heal. For more problematic skin, three or more sessions may be required.
