Immediately after the procedure the treated is area becomes red and sore. Swelling and redness usually go away the same day. On broader areas smaller haematoma (bruising) may appear, and they require a longer recovery time. However, this too disappears with the proper care.
The number of treatments depends on the characteristics of vascular changes, for example their depth, size, type, and colour. However, the procedure is highly efficient as only one to two procedures are usually necessary in 70% of all cases. Only in the event of widespread areas it is necessary to repeat the treatment several times to avoid permanent damage.
