HOW DOES IT WORK?
With a Thermo-Clear treatment, a small probe is used to gently touch the skin. The radiofrequency will vaporize the targeted imperfection while drying the affected area. Small crusts form on the treated spots; they heal and will flake off in roughly 3 days to 2 weeks (depending on the area of treatment). Thermo-Clear only comes in contact with the skin’s top layer so the lower level, the dermis, remains untouched and unaffected.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT?
During the procedure, clients sometimes report mild discomfort, registering roughly 1-3 on a scale of 1-10. It’s often described as a momentary “sting” that disappears quickly when the probe is lifted. And of course, conversation is kept open between the client and technician to ensure the best level of comfort.
HOW FREQUENTLY DO I NEED TREATMENTS?
Before your initial treatment, your skincare professional will check and see how many lesions/irregularities need to be treated, and determine whether a 1-hour session is sufficient. Sometimes, 2 or more sessions may be needed to complete the treatment and achieve your desired look. It really depends on the condition and the client.
WHAT HAPPENS AFTER EACH TREATMENT?
You may experience some mild irritation, redness, and crusting on the treated areas. While skin is healing, makeup can be applied to cover and camouflage any temporary imperfections. You will need to avoid direct sunlight for 4 weeks after the treatment. Otherwise, you can resume normal activities within 24 hours. Results are often seen after just one treatment!
