There are many types of skin rejuvenation procedures and they can all be performed with little to no downtime.

The number of treatments you will need will depend on what you and your doctor decide during your consultation since every individual’s skin is different.

Depending how big of an area you want to treatment the entire procedure can take between 15 minutes and an hour with the only side effects being mild swelling and redness for a day following treatment.
