The number of treatments required depends on the severity of conditions being treated but typically up to 3 treatments are performed, spaced about one month apart. Results become apparent even after the first treatment.
After treatment the area might swell a little and look/feel like sunburn. If the thread veins are shallow, you may be able to see instant results.
Protective eye wear has to be worn during the treatment. A layer of cooled gel is applied to the treatment area. The hand piece of the AFT applicator is applied to this area of cooled skin and a short pulse of light of the appropriate wavelength is released.
Tanned and dark skinned people cannot be treated with AFT. Big veins cannot be treated.
The treatment sensation may feel like the flick of an elastic band on the skin.
Sight soreness and redness like mild sunburn may be felt soon after the treatment, which disappears after a few hours. If the treatment area is in the high cheeks, you may experience slight swelling. Blisters and darkening/lightening of the skin are rarely seen.
