What is a Skinsheek treatment?
Skinsheek is an esthetic device designed to treat minor skin irregularities. A small probe is used to barely touch the skin and regulates the application of high frequency, radio wave currents directly on the skin’s surface. The affected area dries, creating a very small crust that heals and flakes off in 3-12 days and heals in approximately 7-10 days. Treatments take only a few seconds for each spot and results are instantaneous for many conditions. Clients describe their pain level as a 1- 3 on a scale of 1-10 and equate the sensation to a very quick stinging which dissipates quickly when the probe is lifted. This non-invasive treatment eliminates the need for costly laser procedures and can easily be added on to your existing lash or facial appointment.

Treatments are quick with little to no discomfort. However, some areas are more sensitive than others and everyone's pain tolerance is different. If you prefer topical numbing, it will need to be 20-40 min prior to treatment. Topical anesthetics are available for purchase at the spa.

Post Treatment Tips and Tricks
Avoid direct sunlight immediately following the treatment.
Avoid steam rooms, vigorous exercise or hot tubs for 24-48 hours following treatment.
Use mild products without alcohol when cleansing the face or showering.
Pat dry vs. rubbing to prevent premature removal of crusting.
Do NOT use any form of peeling, scrubs, retinol, or bleaching products until fully healed.
After crust sloughs off the skin may be pink. This is an excellent time for a professional facial if Skinsheek treatments were performed on the face.
