Say goodbye to tired, dull skin – and hello to a brighter, younger-looking you!
Only the ThreeForMe treatment can address three common skin concerns – wrinkles, sun damage and facial veins – all within one procedure. 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 procedure is performed in two steps:
- The first step will use an Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) technology to treat discoloration for a more even-looking appearance. This includes sun-damage such as freckles, brown spots, or age spots. This step also addresses unwanted facial veins including broken blood vessels, spider veins and rosacea.
- The second pass will use a “microbeam” laser technology that will gently renew the skin for a smoother-looking appearance. This unique technology works by stimulating new collagen and elastin production – the keys to the support structure of our skin. Improved skin structure results in the reduction of fine lines, wrinkles, scars and other surface imperfections.
We also can separately treat surgical or acne scars, stretch marks, and wrinkles on other areas of the body.
