Frequently Asked Questions

What will it feel like?

Treatments are very well tolerated. Many clients describe the treatment as a ‘warm sensation’ or the snap of a rubber band.

How long will it take?

The procedure typically takes less than 20 minutes to perform depending on the size of the area or number of pigmented lesions being treated.

Often you will see great results after the first treatment session but 2-3 sessions may be required for optimal outcomes.

What do I need to do before a treatment?

You will need to avoid the sun, tanning beds and self-tanning creams and lotions prior to treatment. There may be some medications that you will need to avoid and your physician will cover these during your consultation.

What will happen after the procedure?

Some patients experience a mild sunburn sensation for a short time after the procedure. We may apply some ice immediately following your treatment to help minimize this.

The pigmented lesions will darken over the next few days. The area will look a bit “dirty” or dark for about a week. Over this time, the treated skin will slough off, revealing fresh new skin.

How quickly will I recover?

Typically, you can resume regular daily activities immediately following treatment. Makeup can be applied to the treated area immediately, if necessary.

It is extremely important to apply a moisturizer with SPF30 sun block and avoid sun exposure on a daily basis to prevent additional sun damage.

Laser pigment clearance can be performed on the face and chest, as well as on the hands, arms and legs.

Often you will see improvements within a couple weeks, with further improvements on subsequent treatments until you have achieved the over-all improvement you desire.

Hair Removal

ACTIVECARE offers a permanent solution for unwanted hair. Most people have hair on their face or body that they wish would disappear. In fact, unwanted hair is a common problem.

“When patients come to me seeking a solution for their unwanted hair, they’ve usually tried other methods with little success. When I tell them about permanent hair reduction treatments using the Cynosure® Elite iQ laser, it’s very exciting news for them.”

The Elite iQ provides the technology needed for comprehensive hair removal that can treat unwanted hair anywhere on the face or body, regardless of the patient’s ethnicity. “Whether the patient has dark or light skin, I am able to effectively treat them” - Dr. Tibshirani

To eliminate hair, the laser emits gentle pulses of energy that pass through the skin and penetrate into the hair follicle. The follicle absorbs the energy which disables the follicle from producing hair again, all while leaving the surrounding skin unharmed.
