In the short-term, there is softening and a subtle fresh look to the skin; however, the real results may take at least three months to take effect. The natural regeneration process takes up to 6 weeks to fully develop but the results are well worth waiting for. The regeneration will continue for approximately a year after treatment. For optimal results a course or series of treatments may be required depending on your skin. The skin takes on a new vitality post-treatment, looking brighter, firmer, smoother and clearer.
