Afterwards the special gel is spread onto the skin followed by treating with different head-pieces. During this step, the specialist makes multiple movements by individually selected lines (these head-pieces are assigned to have 19 treatment levels which allows individual approach to each and every customer). When the procedure is completed, the remainder of the gel is removed and the affected skin is oiled by the soothing cream.

The course includes one to several procedures depending on the device capacity. The length of the procedure depends on the area of treatment that is from 20 minutes to a couple of hours.
