What should I expect during my procedure?
Each procedure is different and every individual has varying pain thresholds. A number of different factors contribute to your pain threshold, these include; if you are on your period , if you are tired, medication, stress and the area to be treated. You may experience a slight stinging / short pin prick sensation. Most clients find the treatment to be tolerable and are pleased with the quick acting results and are very positive about the experience.
We undertake the treatments in blocks of 15 mins and depending on the blemish to be treated you may be asked to return in 4 weekly intervals.
Spacing treatments ensures your skin is not over-treated and we aim for the best possible outcomes.
What should I expect following my treatment?
Following your treatment, the area may be red and slightly swollen and warm. Our practitioner will apply an aloe vera gel – this will help to cool the area and will aid to reduce any swelling.

The area may be washed using only a gentle cleanser and tepid water, patted dry with a soft towel.
