How long is a treatment and what does it feel like ?
A full facial treatment requires around 40 minutes, and a body treatment may range from 30 to 60 minutes, depending on the extent of the area being treated. A gel is applied to the treated areas and there may be a gentle heating of the skin as the RF piece is applied over the skin .

How often should the treatment be done?
The number of treatments is determined according to the severity of the conditions being treated, but normally 6 sessions is recommended. Long-lasting results can be seen immediately after the first session, but the effectiveness will obviously wear off due to the natural ageing process. You can simply use it before a night out when you want a youthful more admired appearance. If used twice a week for 4 weeks as a combination of more treatments the effects are more long lasting.
