Iriderm Laser - Skin Rejuvenation
The Iriderm Laser light is absorbed by red blood cells that carry oxygen, and by the brown or black pigment in skin (melanin). Once treated, the red or pigmented skin cells decompose and fade, while the laser spares nearby healthy cells.
Following treatment with the Iriderm Laser, treated areas may appear slightly red. You will initially need to avoid sunlight and use a moisturizer. You should see results in about 1½ weeks to 3 weeks depending on the type of skin condition treated.
