Prior to treatment, you will have a personal consultation to create a treatment plan to target your skin’s specific needs. Depending on your unique skin, follow-up treatments may be necessary. These can be done 4 weeks after your previous treatment. Up to 5 treatments may be necessary for your best results.
During treatment, the technician will apply a cool gel on the skin being treated. The smooth glass surface of the hand piece is gently applied to your skin. You may feel a very slight sting, similar to the snapping of a small rubber band. At the end of treatment, the gel is wiped off and a cold pack is applied to the treated skin. Treatments can take between 30 and 90 minutes, depending on your personal treatment plan.
Following treatment, your skin may feel warm, as if you have sunburn. This will subside within the day; the treated areas will heal within the next week. Most patients can be at work the very next day.
