The spot sizes, rapid pulse times and other proprietary advances such as SPEED™ and IN-Motion™ can help providers shorten treatment times without sacrificing results.
The innovation creates a more efficient system for clinical improvements, helping providers achieve superior results on a predictable and repeatable basis.
The required number of sessions will depend on how severe the rosacea is and so will vary between patients.
