• A local anesthetic is used to prepare the treatment area, so you will not experience discomfort during the procedure.
  • You will have several tiny incisions in your skin afterwards that will heal naturally within 1-2 weeks. The incisions are so small that sutures are not needed, and, in most cases, they will completely disappear once healed.
  • For a short period of time following the treatment, typically two to six weeks, you will need to wear a compression garment to ensure best results.
  • You can typically return to work the day after treatment, and light exercise is encouraged.
  • Normal activities may be resumed immediately with the exception of swimming and heavy lifting. These activities should be avoided for 2 weeks.
