According to the The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, in the U.S. alone, each year doctors perform over half a million non-surgical skin rejuvenation procedures, making them one of the top-requested non-surgical procedures in the country.
If you're considering a skin rejuvenation procedure to reverse skin imperfections this year, you'll find so many reasons that your laser treatment should be the patented ThreeForMeTM system by Cynosure. Let's explore what ThreeForMe is all about.
What is ThreeForMe?
ThreeForMe is a two-phase non-invasive laser procedure that takes around 30 minutes with no downtime and can deliver smoother, more even and vibrant skin for those with:
Wrinkles around the eyes and mouth
Unsightly facial veins
General facial dullness
This Cynosure-designed procedure delivers results you can see and feel often with just one treatment. With continued treatments, your skin's appearance continues to improve month after month.
How does ThreeForMe work?
The ThreeForMe system directs concentrated, short, pulsing beams of light onto your problem areas, which serves two primary purposes. During the first phase, Dr. Fleming applies an IPL laser to target locations, gently removing the dull, damaged, or discolored cells from the surface of the skin to make way for the newer, more vibrant cells below. In the second phase, he uses a non-ablative laser to stimulate collagen production under the skin, which smooths skin and enhances its overall appearance.
Collagen is a strong, fibrous protein that makes up about 75% of the weight of your skin. It offers your skin both the stability and flexibility to move and bounce back. But by the age of 30, collagen production in the skin already begins to slow down, and as it does, skin looks less full and possesses less elasticity to resist sun damage and wrinkles. By both resurfacing the skin and enhancing collagen production with this one procedure, Dr. Fleming can help you have more healthy, youthful looking skin. If you're going to get a skin procedure done, isn't it better to address multiple signs of aging at once? That's exactly what ThreeForMe's patented system does, and the studies exist to prove it.
What to expect during treatment
Expect a two-part process within that typical 30-minute window. Dr. Fleming first targets the imperfections and then applies the laser to increase the collagen production. After Dr. Fleming applies a cooling gel to the skin, he guides the laser across the skin. Patients report that they feel minimal discomfort, like the popping of a rubber band against the skin. Immediately after the procedure, you may experience minor facial swelling and redness that should be gone within two days as the face recovers from the procedure and reveals smoother, healthier-looking skin. Some patients may experience crusting of facial imperfections addressed by the procedure. There's no reason that you can't return to most jobs immediately after the procedure as long as the facial redness will not be a problem in your line of work (e.g., food services, retail, modeling, media, etc.).
Studies support the effectiveness of ThreeForMe
A small study of 25 participants showed that 90% of those who received ThreeForMe treatments saw measurably improved skin after as few as two treatments. Other similar studies have shown that the IPL laser and non-ablative laser technique, which are the foundation of ThreeForMe, are more effective than either treatment alone at:
Improving skin elasticity
Decreasing pore size
Reducing skin wrinkles
Improving skin texture
Reverse skin imperfections with ThreeForMe
