How It Works
The ThreeForMe treatment is exclusively performed using Cynosure’s Icon™ technology. This technology has been optimized for providing the best results on all three skin conditions with minimal social downtime.
The procedure is performed in two steps, or what your physician may refer to as “passes”:
- The first pass 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 pass 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.
What to Expect
During ThreeForMe laser treatments most people feel only minimal discomfort. Your physician may use comforting techniques such as a topical numbing cream or cool gel packs to further enhance your experience. After the treatment, you may experience some minor redness and swelling similar to a slight sunburn. This should resolve in just a couple days but you can wear makeup to conceal any redness.
You will see continued improvement in the skin’s appearance during and after a course of 1-3 treatments with visible results after each individual treatment. You may see results in facial veins immediately after the treatment along with a darkening of the brown spots. These spots will flake off over the next one to three weeks leaving you with a glowing appearance. Lastly, you will see progressive results on any fine lines, wrinkles or scarring over the next six months as your skin naturally responds to the treatment.
