Say goodbye to tired, dull skin – and hello to a brighter, younger-looking you!
Three For Me treatment is the standard for light and laser based facial rejuvenation. This combination of 3 different facial treatment steps during one appointment in the office provides improved skin look, texture and health. To optimize your results, this process is repeated 3 times, each about 1 month apart. This new laser technology minimizes social downtime while maximizing results! Typically patients can expect 2 days of mild redness and swelling after the treatments, with the ability to wear makeup on post-procedure day 3.
The first step addresses discoloration and facial veins using an Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) technology. Technically this is not a laser, but a very broad spectrum, highly intense, light process that targets the darker brown, tan, and red blemishes that develop due to age or accumulated sun-damage.
The next steps in the ThreeForMe process address wrinkles and fine lines using a “microbeam” laser technology to stimulate collagen and elastin production- the keys to the support structure of our skin. While we lose 1% of our collagen every year after the age of 30, this system stimulates the growth and replacement of collagen. The first treatment is more superficial, using the 1540 nm Erbium laser, while the third step treatment uses
Combining these technologies provides the benefits of both in less time- giving you the younger looking skin you want, only sooner!
We also can separately treat surgical or acne scars, stretch marks, and wrinkles on other parts of the body.
