How long does it last?
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.

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.
Once your consultation is complete numbing cream will be applied to the area. Once the treatment area is completely numb your treatment will commence. You may feel some heat in the treatment area, which may be uncomfortable and slightly irritating. Procedures times vary from 30 mins – 120 mins depending on the the size of the treatment area.
Immediately after treatment the area will be red and mildly swollen with small scabs and discolouration. The area will feel tight and warm / hot not dissimilar to mild sun burn. Whilst this is uncomfortable it passes quickly. Swelling may intensify over the following few hours and more so when eyes are treated and may last 3-5 days.
All of the scabs and swelling will disappear in 3 – 7 days, although this will depend on the area to being treated. Improvements can be seen as soon a the treatment is complete – however the final results will be seen in 8 weeks. Essentially there is downtime, but it is considerably less then with surgery.
After treatment you must follow that post procedure care advice which will be given at the time of your consultation. This will ensure that you achieve optimum results.
