Like any external treatment, this is not advisable and of course forbidden on areas such as the tummy, breasts or even the hips (any body areas). The safest is to abstain from treatments altogether.

There are few. Sometimes localized redness that disappears after a few hours. Sometimes some local pain that rarely exceeds 2 to 3 hours. There may also be some itching without consequences and often due to the reactions of certain cosmetic products used by clients. Hence it is good to ask clients to not use anything (i.e. strong lotions) before coming to do the treatment because some products can crystallize to the cold and cause discomfort. The risks concern only people with contraindications mentioned above and remain minor and temporary.

No…… Unless you cover the wound with some sort of plaster. The reason for this is not to pass bodily fluid onto the Wand. If you cover the wound then treat through the cover, the treatment should help healing due to increased blood flow to the area.
It’s best to wait 1 week after these treatments to make sure the treated areas are fully healed and bodily fluid won’t be transferred.
