What to expect

   We will start with a consultation and skin exam. Then a medical grade numbing cream will be applied. This will set for about 30 mins before starting the treatment. During that time, most clients will relax, play on their phones, or listen to music. During the procedure, we use a hand piece with a brand new tip that has fine gold plated needles to penetrate the skin and deliver RF energy to the desired depth. The service itself takes 20-30 mins depending on the area that we are treating. Just after the treatment, your skin will likely be red, feel like a it has a mild sunburn, and be warm to the touch.  In the next few days,  you may have slight redness and swelling. Minimal bruising can happen but is uncommon.

Does it hurt?

  Most people tolerate the treatment very well. To help minimize any discomfort during the RF microneedling we will numb your skin prior. You may feel a pricking sensation and/or warmth, but it is not typically painful. After the treatment a certain level of swelling, irritation, and mild discomfort is normal but usually goes away within a few hours.
