Infrared skin treatment
Thank you for asking about thermascan.
- This is an office infra-red wavelength skin treatment.
- It is a sun wavelenght and can darken skin.
- it will not do much to improve lines in the upper arms.
- If you have the treatment, your skin should be pretreated with skin lightening cream for 2-6 weeks, to avoid hyperpigmentation (skin darkening.)
Always see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. Best wishes - Elizabeth Morgan MD PHD FACS
