How long does a pedicure take?

There are numerous benefits in both the design and the treatment of micro needling fractional RF Technology.
How long does recovery take?
This is very much dependant on the individual natural recovery and metabolic rate. We have seen that the face typically has a quicker recovery time compared to arms and stomach. However, this treatment has long term results so expect up to 1 week of recovery time.
Do I need to prepare anything in advance?
Prior to coming to the clinic, ensure your skin is clan and has no make up. Clients are asked to have a apply numbing cream to the treatment are at least 20 mins before. This is usually dependant on individual pain threshold. As microneedles are penetrated directly into the dermis, this can be a painful experience for some. However, with application of numbing cream the pain is dramatically decreased and the treatment becomes a fairly easy to administer and endure.
What to expect as post treatment?
Mild redness and swelling may occur a few hours and up to 24 hours after treatment. Massage and excessive sun exposure should be avoided at this time. More aggressive treatments may result in skin flaking as the new skin layer regenerates. Moisturisers and broad spectrum sunscreens are highly recommended during this recovery phase.
RF energy once delivered into the deep layers of the dermis induces regenerative processes in the skin to begin. In 4 days needle marks will fade away completely and the swelling will subside in most patients while patients will begin to feel a noticeable difference in skin tone, smoothness and elasticity. So far fractional RF microneedle therapy is a great anti-ageing technique.
Who is an ideal candidate?
People who are suffering from acne scars, facial lines, wrinkles or tired and loose skin on their face due to age, genetics or lifestyle factors can get fractional RF MicroNeedle treatment to stimulate the natural body processes that make us look younger.
