How long will the results last?

These results will typically last for approximately 12 months. The longevity of the results will depend on the condition of the skin before the treads treatments, adherence to aftercare, the presence of sun damage, and personal factors such as metabolism. In order to achieve long lasting results, maintenance treatments are recommended.
