Common Questions

How Long Is The Treatment?

The whole treatment takes 70-90 minutes. The practitioner will exfoliate your skin to remove the dead skin cells. GlycoAla is applied to your skin and left for 40 minutes, during which time you will relax in a darkened room. Once the GlycoAla is removed, you are placed under the POLY Pro LED Light.

Is the treatment uncomfortable?

You may feel a tingling sensation when placed under the light, but this is typically transient and dependent on the extent of sun damage you have.

Is the treatment safe?

Yes. Your provider will discuss contraindications and precautions with you. Some drugs and illnesses may make you photo sensitive therefore you may not be suitable for the treatment.

How many treatments do I need?

A course of 3 treatments, spaced 4 weeks apart is recommended.

Is there downtime?

No. You will be instructed to avoid going outdoors in the sunlight for 48 hours after the treatment, and to wear a high SPF sun protection and a wide brimmed hat if you do go out.

Who is the ideal candidate for GlycoAla?
