What happens during the treatment?
To make your treatment more comfortable skin numbing cream is applied. We remove the numbing cream after 30 minutes and apply steritane to prevent infection. We tend to start on your main area of concern, thoroughly applying pulses over the treatment area.
The treatment itself takes 30 minutes to 1 hour depending on the area. To cool the skin we apply a soothing Timeless Truth mask, followed by aftercare serum and SPF50.
How long does treatment take?
Allow 1 hour to 1 hour 30 minutes for the full treatment, depending on the treatment area.
How many treatments do I need?

When will I see results?
After each treatment collagen remodelling continues and so full results can be seen 3 months after your last treatment.
Does it hurt?
You may feel a mild discomfort throughout the treatment, we apply numbing cream prior to treatment to reduce this.
How will my skin feel after?
As we are applying heat deep within the dermis, your skin may feel warm and tender for a few hours after.
How will my skin look after treatment?
Your skin will be red after treatment Redness may last for a couple of days. You may experience skin flaking due to resurfacing effects.
How do I care for my skin after the treatment?
