What are indications for the procedure?
- Actinic keratosis
- Post-inflammatory discoloration
What results can I expect afterwards?
When repeated on a regular basis, this treatment causes skin thinning, regulates pigment production and has strong whitening properties. It inhibits the enzyme called tyrosinase in melanocytes and by doing so it regulates melanogenesis, which can lead to discoloration when excessive.
How many sessions are needed for the expected results?
In order to achieve the optimal results, a series of minimum 5 sessions at 14- to 21-day intervals is recommended. The outcome is individual.
What care does my skin need afterwards?

After a couple of days, the skin starts to peel in a natural way, you should wait out this process and do not enhance it by any exfoliating products. In order to ease skin tightness and burning, a thick layer of post-treatment products should be applied. On the first day after the procedure, do not use any make-up. You should avoid sun exposure and tanning booths for 4 weeks, as well as use sunscreen (min. 30 SPF) and comply to your cosmetologist’s recommendations on skin care.
