How soon will I see results?
Many patients see an instant result that continues to improve over a 1 week period. The inner structure of the skin will need time for the rejuvenating processes to play out; whether that’s for new collagen to develop or for pigmented cells to disperse and disappear.
How much does this treatment cost, and how long will it take?
The time it takes to carry out the treatment will often depend on the size and location of the treatment area. A typical procedure for the face can take around 20-30 minutes to complete, however, treatment time will be discussed at consultation.
