How long do the results last for ?
This type of skin tightening is very effective and as such the results can last longer than other procedures – up to 2 years
Because of the instant retraction of the skin improvements can be seen almost instantly, however to see the full results you must wait up to 8 weeks allowing collagen regeneration to take place. For some, an additional treatment may be required after 8 weeks for maximum results.
How many treatments are required?
Individuals respond differently to this treatment and factors such as the existing condition of the skin need to be taken into account. If repeat treatments are desired clients must wait 8 weeks before retreating.

About your treatment
Please remove all make up before your treatment.
We recommend using anti-histamine medication approx 30 mins before your apt – this will help to prevent excessive swelling.
To make the treatment more comfortable a numbing ointment is applied to the area. When the area is numb, the session begins. You may feel some heat in the treatment area, which may be uncomfortable and slightly irritating. The length of your treatment depends on which area being treated – small areas may take only 30 mins – larger areas 120 mins.
After your treatment you will have some swelling and small “dots” that are scabs – this is quite usual. The area will feel tight and warm / hot not dissimilar to mild sun burn. Whilst this is uncomfortable it passes quickly. Swelling is a normal part of the treatment process – the extent will vary from client to client, this swelling will subside in approx 5 days and in many cases sooner.
All of the scabs and swelling will disappear in 3 – 7 days, although this will depend on the area to being treated. You will be able to see improvements in the treated area immediately. These improvements continue for up to 8 weeks. After the procedure there is a short period of downtime – although far shorter than the time needed after surgery.
You will be given an aftercare sheet, it is important that you follow these instructions carefully. This will ensure that your skin heals optimally.
