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.)
