Following are the side effects:
- Fractionated laser: The skin is red and warm (it looks and feels as if you have a sunburn), and there is some swelling for approximately thirty six hours.
- Pigment laser: Brown spots or spider veins both look worse before they get better. They've been blown up by laser heat, so a brown spot becomes a dark maroon splotch until it flakes off in three to twenty-one days.
- IPL: There are slight redness and swelling for one to three hours. On the chest, a bronzing effect can last a few weeks due to hemosiderin (pigment from the breakdown of blood vessels).
- Radiofrequency: There could be slight swelling or redness, although some people have few visible side effects and no pain whatsoever once the treatment is finished.
