How much downtime should I expect?
There is absolutely no down time. You can resume all normal activities the very same day.
How many treatments will I need?

It is a 30-minute procedure. We will book you for an hour-long appointment to ensure total relaxation and a spa-like experience before, during and after your treatment.
Will I experience any pain during the treatment?
None at all! Most women find this treatment to be a surprisingly comfortable experience and equate the sensation to a hot stone massage.
What if I am pregnant?
We do not advise this treatment for women who are currently pregnant. However, this treatment is great for the post-partum healing so we encourage you to come see us once you are cleared by your doctor.
Who will be in the room during my treatment?
