During a treatment, your skin is cleansed and then a strong topical numbing cream is applied for 20-25 minutes. The Skin Pen is used to treat the areas of concern.

It takes more than one treatment to begin to notice the difference in your skin. For general skin improvements 4 -5 treatments are recommended. Most treatments take 1 hour.

Using quality skin care products will improve overall treatment. Vitamin A is fuel to make collagen/elastin, vitamin C is essential for the production of normal collagen. Using SPF will also reduce further damage from light exposure.
