A course of treatment typically includes 4 sessions spaced 2-4 weeks apart. Each session usually takes about 15 minutes. During treatment, a gel is applied to the treatment area and your eyes are covered with shields. You may experience a warm sensation but the treatment is gentle with minimal discomfort and no downtime.
Patients usually report improvement around their 3rd treatment. Maintenance treatments are recommended every 6-12 months to ensure the best long-term results.
