ou ask a very good question.  The laser settings can be altered to match the skin type and also to some degree the acceptable down time. In a way the more redness and skin irritation the deeper the trearment and hence the more dramatic result. Most of my patients want 3-5 days down but, are w8illing to repeat the procedure in 3 months if needed
