Priming the skin before treatment is important to ensure optimal results are achieved. Ideally, this will involve at least one-two weeks of following a prescribed skincare regime.
On the day of the treatment, at least one hour before the treatment the topical anesthetic will be applied. Following the treatment, your skin can be red and puffy, so you may want to go home rather than back to the office.
You may experience some temporary side effects over the next few days, e.g.; redness and bruising. Following the prescribed skincare regime after the treatment, will ensure optimal results and lessen the potential for any negative side effects.
