Dad's Radiance

Thursday, 24 Feb 2005 | Family

My dad went to his doctor today for his first Radiance treatment. Radiance is a laser treatment for the skin using a $250,000 machine similar to the ones to clear up acne on Extreme Makeover. It's being used to eradicate some dry spots on his head and torso that may prove to be pre-cancerous if not treated. He said it was not fun, describing the feeling of the laser as hot needles jabbing into his skin. They apply a desensitizing gel prior to treatment. I'm just hoping he doesn't have too much discomfort in the next few days. I would imagine it would be sensitive akin to a sunburn.
