Before & After




Is it safe and reliable?

Yes, very much.

How many treatments may be required?

5 sessions spaced 2 weeks apart should suffice.

What happens after the treatment?

Temporary redness in the skin lasts for a very short time and most people return to normal activities immediately after the treatment.

Does it hurt?

It feels like a hot pinch or “snapping” feeling. This sensation lasts only a fraction of a second and you may feel a warm or tingling sensation for a short time afterwards.
