Some treatment clinics promote laser surgery by showing clients the before and after photos. However, I have attached a photo to show what you may expect immediately after V-Beam laser to treat pokiloderma (sun damage redness of the neck). It is important to note that my circular raised welts have gone but after 4 weeks, I still have small circular impressions in the skin. For me, I was told 3-5 treatments but stopped after just one treatment. In fairness, I was warned to expect temporary swelling prior to treatment but I still wanted to hide in the nearest cave after seeing the welts on my skin.
