Is this treatment painful?

The treatment itself can be uncomfortable. The esthetician will apply a topical numbing cream to the face to anesthetize the skin to ease the possible discomfort.

Is there downtime?

Yes. About an hour after your procedure the skin will become red and hot similar to sunburn. The following day your skin will be very dry and tight. Typically, around the third day following treatment, the skin will start to peel and slough off. This should last 2-3 days. A simple moisturizer can be used and makeup can be worn if comfortable.

How often can I do this?

This treatment is recommended monthly for optimal results.
