What to Expect


During Vanishing Ink’s Ultimate Care Phototherapy Treatment (Cynosure's ThreeForMe icon technology) most people feel only minimal discomfort. At Vanishing Ink Laser Aesthetics Center, we have a medical doctor on staff who can ensure the highest level of expertice as well as maximum level of comfort with every procedure. We may use additional techniques such as a topical numbing cream or cool gel packs to further enhance your experience. After the treatment, you may experience some minor redness and swelling similar to a slight sunburn. This should resolve in just a couple days but you can wear makeup to conceal any redness.


You will see continued improvement in the skin’s appearance during and after a course of 1-3 treatments with visible results after each individual treatment. You may see results in facial veins immediately after the treatment along with a darkening of the brown spots. These spots will flake off over the next one to three weeks leaving you with a glowing appearance. Lastly, you will see progressive results on any fine lines, wrinkles or scarring over the next six months as your skin naturally responds to the treatment.


Am I a candidate?


Ultimate Care Phototherapy Treatment can be safely used on most skin types and for common aging and

sun-related skin conditions including wrinkles, sun spots and facial vessels. During your consultation, your physician will determine if you are a good candidate for the procedure based on a variety of personal factors.


How many treatments will I need?


A typical course of treatment involves 1-3 procedures at one-month intervals. However, everyone’s skin conditions are different so your physician will customize the treatment for optimal results on your skin. They will discuss your specific treatment plan during your consultation.


How will it feel?


During the Ultimate Care Phototherapy Treatment most people feel only minimal discomfort. During the treatment you may feel some mild cooling as the laser is guided over the treatment area along with a slight sensation similar to the snapping of a rubber band. After the treatment, you may experience some minor redness and swelling similar to a mild sunburn for a couple days.


How long does it take?


Treatments are quick and last about 30 minutes.


How long before I can resume normal activities?


Typically, you can resume regular daily activities the same day as your treatment although due to some redness and swelling you may experience a day or two of “social downtime”.


Is it safe?


Ultimate Care  Phototherapy Treatment (Cynosure's ThreeForMe icon technology) are clinically proven to be safe and effective.
