How does the treatment feel?
You will feel some pressure and heat. The treatment is typically tolerated with topical anesthetics. Dr. Gerrish and the MedEsthetics Team will work with you to find and improve your comfort level.
How long is a treatment and downtime?
Depending on the area treated, it can take as little as 15 minutes and up to an hour. There is an initial pinkness and swelling which typically subsides after 24-36 hours. It may take up to a week for this to completely resolve.
How long before I see results?
Results may vary, but you should see some changes soon after the procedure. As your body rebuilds collagen, gradual improvements occur over the next six months.
How many treatments will I need?
We will discuss your goals, which will determine the length and number of treatments. Dramatic results may require multiple treatments. Typically 2-3 treatments give optimal results.
