Is there any discomfort during the procedure?
Yes but it is mild as we use a topical numbing cream to keep you comfortable.
Is there any discomfort afterwards when the numbing wears off?
Swelling of your wrinkles occurs immediately. While it is possible for patients to experience swelling in the under-eye area for the first day, this swelling will subside. For the first three hours, there will be redness and slight heat emanation from the treated area. It is unusual to experience severe or excessive pain; let us know if this occurs.
Is there any down-time from this procedure?
By definition down-time would imply that you would be unable to return to a state of normalcy after the treatment. This isn’t the case, although we do not want you to wash your face for the first 24 hours and it is recommended to take it a little easier than normal the day of your treatment.
Do I have to discontinue activity for any period of time?
Post-treatment redness is mild, and you may return to regular activities immediately. If you experience heat emanating from the treated area, this is normal—do not apply ice or cooling compresses, as the heat being produced in the treated area is your body’s natural healing response.
May I wear a moisturizer after the treatment?
Moisturizer should be applied regularly throughout the course of your treatment series, and it may be applied 24 hours after each treatment.
Do I need to avoid the sun during my treatment course?
Avoiding direct sun should become a permanent component of your long-term skin care program. Always use a broad-spectrum sunscreen of SPF 30 or greater, even on cloudy days, regardless of season.
Is there some sort of long-term skin care to consider?
In addition to avoiding direct sun exposure, we suggest all clients use long-term skin care that will optimize the youthful, rejuvenated appearance you have achieved. We offer clients a program for long-term facial skin maintenance. This unique program offers state-of-the-art skin maintaining and rejuvenating creams that are only available and administered by our medical team.
Will I be happy with my results?
Put it this way… if we didn’t believe you would truly love your results we wouldn’t have bought the machine to begin with. We can’t get enough of it ourselves.
