Also, if the improper laser settings are used and high levels of energy is applied, it can burn the skin.  Be sure that the facility you are attending has positive reviews.

Fade creams can be found online, but each product is different. The best products are those that are less than $50 online and do not contain ingredients like TCA, Hydroquinone or Cashew Nut Oil.
