How it works

As the energy is absorbed it destroys the imperfection it is targeting and slowly it disappears. You will noticed brown spots will appear darker and more prominent before they begin to flake off over the next few weeks. Some vessels will disappear immediately and others will slowly fade out over the next few weeks.
