- For maximum results it is advisable that some patients take an over the counter pain medication or muscle relaxant 1 hour prior to the treatment. Individuals have different levels of pain tolerance and some are able to experience the treatment with no medication while others experience discomfort that using a pain reliever will diminish. This will allow the treatment specialist to give a thorough treatment at the most advantageous levels in order to achieve the desired result. If desired, Skintegrity has available the Clarion Pro-Nox Nitrous Oxide (laughing gas) pain management system which is safe and used in dentistry and labour/delivery settings.
- The skin will be covered with a cool ultrasound gel over the area to be treated.

- The skin is then cleaned of the ultrasound gel and the patient is free to lie quietly for several minutes to adjust to the new sensation of tightness in the skin tissues.
- The tissues may feel sore like they have done a "work out" with their facial muscles. There are no visible side effects with this procedure which make it even more attractive to those who do not wish to have down time or have to be in public immediately after. This is the proof of the tightening that the treatment provides and it may last for several days to 2 weeks. There is the rare occurrence of bruising which will diminish in several days.
- Patients can resume normal daily activities directly after treatment.
- There are no visible side effects unless there is bruising which is not typical.
- Many patients see a visible difference immediately after their treatment.
- The tightening will continue improve over the next 2-3 months as the collagen and elastin are stimulated during the treatment and, just like planting a seed in the ground, it takes time for the end result to reach the surface.
- Results last for approx 3 years as the aging process will continue and the skin will naturally still lose its firmness. The healthier the skin at treatment time, the longer the results last.
- The prices are dependent on the area treated and range from $450 to $1800
