How much downtime is required?

Redness and swelling are common and can last up to 48 hours.

What about safety and who is performing the treatment? 

When considering a laser treatment you should always ensure the laser technician is licensed through QLD Radiation and Health as all dermal clinicians at Coast Plastic Surgery are. 

QLD Health legislation requires: “Any business that uses Class 4 lasers to deliver their service must be licensed. The person operating the equipment is also required to have a license” 

“Class 3 lasers, which are not as powerful, do not currently need to be licensed” 

As the consumer it is important to be well informed making a decision for facial treatments. Price should not be the only determining factor.
