Affirm Anti-Aging Laser
Clinical Studies have proven that the Affirm is less painful, takes less time, is less costly and is safer than the Fraxel treatment for the removal of wrinkles and scars.
What is the Affirm laser?
Affirm is a laser used to treat damaged and aging skin by harmlessly penetrating the outer layer of skin, but only selectively targeting the bad skin. This method protects the skin from enduring too much damage at once and eliminates much of the downtime associated with CO2 or erbium laser resurfacing treatment.
What are the benefits of the Affirm Laser treatment?
This treatment eliminates old epidermal pigmented cells. It also penetrates deeply into the dermis.
What conditions can be treated with the Affirm technology?
Wrinkles, poor texture, large pores, sun spots, brown spots, scars, melasma, and uneven pigmentation can be treated successfully with the Affirm laser. Optimal improvement is usually visible in about two to three months.
How many treatments will I need?
The greatest benefit is achieved with 4 treatments
What happens before treatment?
Your skin will be cleansed thoroughly and there is no need for a topical anesthetic. The procedure is relatively painless, and takes about 15 minutes to conduct. It is safe for all skin types.
What are the side effects after treatment?
Side effects are minimal and usually limited to a sunburn-like redness which disappears in about 24 hours. Within 24 hours, new epidermal skin will develop and your skin will have a bronze appearance which can last from three days up to two weeks depending on what level of treatment you have received. As the new epidermal tissue replaces the damaged tissue, your skin will flake off. Moisturizer can counteract some of the flaking effect.
When can I go back to work?
Typically patients find they can go back to work soon after treatment or the next day.
Can I wear makeup or shave right away?
You may apply make-up or shave soon after treatment.
