It may take several hours to a day before you begin to notice the results of the treatment. It may take a few days to see results, this varies from treatment-to-treatment.
If proper steps are taken to care for the skin between and after your PhotoFacial/Skin Rejuvenation treatments, results can last up to a year or even longer. Wear plenty of sunscreen and consistently follow your at-home skincare routine.
