It is ideal for anyone seeking younger-looking skin without the long downtime associated with conventional resurfacing procedures. You should speak with your practitioner about your complete medical and skin history to minimize the potential for any negative reactions.

You can expect some moderate discomfort during the treatment, but the anesthetic applied before the procedure typically makes any discomfort tolerable.
