Wait a few months between treatments
I would recommend waiting at least four to six months following an initial treatment with the Deep F/X before having another treatment. There is ongoing collagen remodeling and tightening that takes place for a few months following the treatment so you want to wait that long to see how much further treatment you may or may not need. For deeper wrinkles (particularly those around the mouth) or for acne scars, it is not unusual to need more than one treatment.
