On your scheduled appointment, a cosmetologist will critically examine you and schedule you for the light therapy procedure.
Before the procedure, the area to be treated is cleansed using alcohol and or acetone to degrease the skin. A photosensitizer liquid or cream is then applied indiscriminately to the said area.
After the used medication has dried, you’ll merely wait for 30-60 minutes for incubation time.
You are then exposed to the luminous source where each light therapy treatment takes about 20 minutes, depending on the results you’re looking to achieve, skin pigmentation, and the anatomical site.
These critical adjustments on specific individualized incubation times and period times are made by the capable physicians present. The treated area is then washed off, and sunscreen is applied.
Some patients may complain of sensations of warmth, tingling, heat, or burning. This is normal, and a fan will be availed to help cool off during the treatment. Instructions will be provided for home care as you leave.
