No topical anesthesia is needed for this relatively quick procedure. Most patients report little to no discomfort throughout the duration of the procedure.

Some patients may experience a minimal pink flush, which could last between 1-3 hours. This procedure allows you to immediately return to your normal activities. This treatment can be done shortly before a major event to give patients “camera-ready” results.

In a consultation with Dr. Adams, you will discuss both the treatment and how you can prolong your results. UV protection will be discussed, as well as a daily skincare routine.
