1Does it hurt?
A local anaesthetic cream is applied before the treatment which reduces the discomfort.
2What areas can be treated?
Common areas that can be treated are face, neck decolletage, hands. Stretch marks in the torso, thighs, arms etc can also be treated.
3How long does the procedure take?
It depends on the area to be treated but you can expect 20-30 minutes per treatment. Also please keep in mind that the local anaesthetic cream needs to be applied approx 30-45 minutes before the treatment.
4How many courses of treatments will I need?
You should start seeing results in appoximately 6-8 weeks after the first treatment. Thereafter we would recommend treatment approximately 8-10 weeks apart. Depending on the condition of your skin, you might be recommended shorter or longer courses of treatment. For stretch marks, we would recommend a course of at least 5 treatments.
5Are there any side effects?
The area treated may look a bit red and swollen, similar to a sun-burn but this should settle in a few hours to 48 hours. You'll be given and advice sheet after the procedure.
