But from the third or fourth session is when you will begin to notice visible results, and sometimes five, six or more sessions are necessary for the complete elimination.
It is a simple procedure that is performed in consultation without the need for anesthesia, because although small punctures can be somewhat annoying, it is easily tolerated.
