How long is the session? Thermal Imaging appointments are booked for 30 minutes to allow time for imaging multiple areas and taking "before" photos to monitor progress. Skin Tightening/Rejuvenation sessions are 45 minutes.
What happens in the session? A cool gel similar to a sonogram gel is applied to the treatment area and a Technician uses a small, round metal applicator to administer heat and cool temperatures to cool the skin. This process penetrates into the deeper levels of skin to awaken dormant collagen and elastin to tighten the skin.
Does it hurt? No, but there may be an initial discomfort depending on your tolerance for cold. We use a small wand applicator ensuring controlled cooling and temperature adjustment for your comfort. We do not lift or suck the skin. There is no pinching, bruising, or "shelfing."
What do I do after the session? We suggest a Red Light Therapy session with WILD ICE® Cryo-C Serum, or whole body cryotherapy and/or localized to keep the skin tight. For long term maintenance, we suggest the WILD ICE® cold-kept skin care line of products for the face, neck and body.

How often do I need to come for multiple treatments?:National protocol requires a minimum of 7 days between skin tightening sessions on the body. For ironing crepey skin, appointments can be 3-4 days apart since we can use a less drastic temperature. One treatment provides a 24 hour "Cinderella" effect. For a more semi-permanent change, you will need a series of sessions to reach your goals after which we suggest a touch up every three-six months to keep the skin tight.
