BEFORE & AFTER TREATMENT
Frequently asked questions
1) Am I a good candidate for this treatment?
For safety reasons, you may not be able to get this treatment if you have/are:
Active inflammation and/or infection in the treatment area
Current or history of cancer
A degenerative neurologic disease or any other disease around the treatment area that’s triggered by heat (e.g. herpes)
An Internal defibrillator/pacemaker
Metal implants (excluding dental) in the treatment area
Uncontrolled thyroid gland disorder
Pregnant or are undergoing an IVF procedure
Skin-related autoimmune diseases
Silicone implants and/or injections in the area
2) How many treatments do I need to see results?
Most patients receive 6-8 treatments per area. The exact number will depend on each individual person and the area being treated.
3) How far apart will the treatments be?
Treatments are done once a week.
4) How long does each treatment session take?
Each session lasts 15-30 minutes, depending on the area being treated.
5) What does the treatment feel like?
The applicator will slowly get warmer until your skin reaches the required temperature and stays within that temperature range. If you do feel it’s too hot, the temperature can be lowered.
6) Will it be painful?
Treatments are comfortable. Some say it feels like a relaxing hot stone massage. Some even fall asleep during the treatment.
7) How long will the results last and are they permanent?
After your final treatment, your results will continue to improve for up to 3-4 months. After that, your face and body continue to age, so maintenance is recommended once a month or every 3-4 months, depending on the person.
8) Is there any downtime?
There is absolutely no downtime. The treatment area may look a little flushed and warm to the touch, but this will go away within 1-2 hours. You can return to your daily schedule immediately after your treatment.
