Frequently asked questions about Core:
How do I know if Core treatments are right for me?
What is the Core procedure like?
You can expect some moderate discomfort during the treatment, but the anesthetic applied prior to the procedure typically makes any discomfort tolerable. For more aggressive, higher powered treatments, your practitioner may recommend a subcutaneous anesthetic, oral pain relievers and/or sedatives during the treatment session. Over the counter pain relievers may be taken in the days after the procedure to alleviate any residual discomfort.
Is Core safe?
Yes, you should speak with your practitioner about your complete medical and skin history to minimize the potential for any negative reactions.
How many Core treatments will I need?
Generally, you will see the difference you want after only one treatment. In the days after the treatment your skin will gradually look softer and smoother. The age spots and uneven textures will start to show immediate improvement.
How long will the results last?
The durability of Core results approaches that of surgical procedures. However, there are a number of variables that will determine how long you can expect the results to last.
What can I expect after my procedure?
Immediately following the procedure, you can expect a sensation similar to a sunburn, lasting several hours. You can expect peeling of dead skin from the treatment area. This is a natural exfoliation process that may last 7-10 days.
