Yes, it is going to hurt. It won’t hurt like giving birth. Or being eaten by a Siberian Tiger. Most cosmetic procedures have a bit of discomfort. This is more topical and manageable for pain. But far less painful than major facial surgeries.
Comfort thresholds vary from person to person. There can be discomfort while the energy is being delivered, but it is temporary and a signal that the collagen-building process has been initiated. Treatment over bony areas tends to be a bit more uncomfortable. (forehead, jawline)
We want you to be aware of the specific comfort measures available to make your experience as pleasant as possible. We will ask for your feedback before, during and after the treatment just to adjust comfort measures as needed.
We encourage patients to attempt to experience the higher energy levels, as this ensures the best results. Patients typically leave comfortable and excited about their benefits to come.
