    1. The KTP is typically used for spot treatment of blood vessels and dark spots, which typically takes 5-10 mins. If diffuse redness is present, the full face can be done but would take close to 20-30mins and this modality is not ideal. I’d recommend the IPL if full face treatment is requested. Thanks for the question.
