What Are Potential Side Effects And What Can I Expect After My Treatment?

The most common side effects occur in the treatment area and include:

  • Swelling
  • Bruising
  • Tenderness
  • Numbness
  • Redness
  • Areas of hardness

These side effects tend to lessen on subsequent treatments.

Rare side effects include: difficulty swallowing during the first few days (this is thought to be due to swelling), temporary numbness, nerve damage causing an uneven smile or facial muscle weakness, hyperpigmentation, and small areas of beard loss in men.
