The Affirm™ laser is a major breakthrough in non-ablative, cosmetic lasers used to treat:
- Fine Lines & Wrinkles
- Scars including Acne Scars
- Sun Spots, Age Spots & Brown Spots
- Skin Tightness & Elasticity
- Stretch Marks
- Pigmentation & Redness
- Skin Texture
What are the benefits and how does it work?
The Affirm™ laser is the gold standard in the field of non-invasive skin rejuvenation and treatment of wrinkles, acne scars, stretch marks, enlarged pores, sagging, and aging skin. This exciting new laser technology combines two different wavelengths and fractional technology to help skin appear younger, smoother and tighter.
Similar to Fraxel®, the Affirm™ Multiplex™ stimulates new collagen production and helps smooth superficial lines and scars in the skin. A second simultaneous wavelength delivers heat directly to the deeper skin layers to produce instant contraction of the collagen and firmer, tighter skin with reduced sagging over time. The combined wavelengths and lower energy levels maximize effectiveness and translate into greatly reduced discomfort as compared with Fraxel® treatments. Since the skin between the laser microspots remains intact, the healing process is much shorter compared with traditional skin resurfacing.
Unlike Fraxel®, the Affirm™ laser requires minimal to no downtime. Patients generally experience sunburn like redness, which can be easily covered with make-up. Affirm™ treatments also take less time than Fraxel®, since no dyes are needed to mark the skin. It can be used on the face, neck, and sagging areas of the body including upper arms, knees, stomach and inner thighs. After the last treatment, new collagen will be produced for an additional 4-6 months. The outcome is firmer, tighter skin, reduced wrinkles and fine lines, filling and smoothing out of acne scars, reduced pore size and younger looking, revitalized skin.
