The treatment takes a few minutes. You can expect to feel a small sting for a few minutes afterwards, along with an area of flushing around the lesion for 2 to 4 hours. On occasion, a blister might form that is likely to settle within a couple of days. The tissue breaks down over a few days, and in most cases, lesions are gone within 10 to 14 days.
You may need to attend a follow-up appointment within 2 to 4 weeks confirm to check the treated area and to see whether a follow-up treatment is required.
