What to expect during the treatment.
Arrive at the clinic with no make up. Anti- Histamine medication may prevent the area treated from swelling, taken 30 mins prior to the treatment and for up to 3 days after your treatment.
Once your consultation is complete numbing cream will be applied to the area. The procedure will begin when the area is numb. A feeling of heat and slight irritation may be felt in the area being treated. Procedures times vary from 30 mins – 120 mins depending on the the size of the treatment area.
Once your procedure is complete the area is likely to be slightly swollen and will have pin prick scabs . You may experience a sensation similar to a sun burn which will likely last a few hours. After the procedure it is highly likely that the area will swell – this is part of the healing process, this can last for up to 5 days.
The healing process takes 3 – 7 days and during this time the scabbing and swelling will resolve. Improvements can be seen as soon a the treatment is complete – however the final results will be seen in 8 weeks. Whilst there is a period of downtime after the treatment – this is far less than the time needed for recuperation after surgery .
