After inserting a hair-thin acupuncture needle, the skin is stimulated by radiofrequency energy from the device. By gently turning the needle, a response of the subcutaneous tissue of the area in question is achieved. An improvement can be seen immediately; the restructuring of collagen may take 1 – 3 month before it is completed. The treatment is performed once and the achieved effect usually lasts for more than a year.
After the procedure
An improvement can be seen immediately; the restructuring of collagen may take 1 – 3 month before it is completed. The treatment is performed once and the achieved effect usually lasts for more than a year. After the procedure, it is advisable not to apply make-up immediately, if possible. The recommended time of makeup application is only 12 hours after the needle shaping and later. Normal hygiene – washing with water, light moisturizer – is possible already on the first night after the procedure. If the procedure was performed on the face, it is recommended to prop up your head when you sleep in the first few days after the treatment to speed up the absorption of the mild swelling. When staying in the sun, it is recommended to protect the treated site with a sunscreen with SPF 50. Also, saunas, professional beauty treatments, massage and other methods that might have an impact on the effect of the needle shaping on the subcutaneous tissue should be avoided for a period of at least 1 month after the procedure. Exercise is possible 24 hours after the procedure, depending on how the client feels. However, it should not be straining.Order
