The weather outside might be dull, but that doesn’t mean your skin has to be! Give your skin the VIP treatment this winter with the Icon ThreeForMe laser.
Despite the name, the ThreeForMe laser is actually performed in two steps. The first step relies on IPL technology to treat sun damage and facial veins.
Let’s delve into that first step:
IPL is the acronym for something called Intense Pulsed Light. It works by producing high-intensity light delivering pulses of broad-spectrum light to the deep layers of the skin. In simpler terms, this means it delivers pulses of broad-spectrum light that emit a specific color which targets the damaged discolored skin while leaving the surrounding tissue unharmed.
When light is absorbed by tissue, it heats up the cells and destroys the unwanted pigments — in this case, sun damage and facial veins. The process itself is gradual and, therefore, more gentle than traditional laser therapies. An added bonus? Light therapy triggers new collagen growth. Collagen is a protein naturally found in the body responsible for keeping our skin plump and elastic that begins to decrease a we age. By destroying the damaged skin cells, the deeper layers of skin respond by producing new collagen to replace the destroyed cells. The results are firmer, tighter, smoother skin.
The second step of the Icon ThreeForMe laser relies on the more traditional “laser” aspect to treat fine lines and wrinkles. This step works by damaging skin cells deep in the dermis which then signals a healing response. Known as “cell signaling,” the process activates the creation of collagen and elastin. The result will leave your skin more supported and looking plump and bright with visible reduction of wrinkles.
Winter is the perfect time to try out this rock star treatment: Skin resurfacing treatments such as the Icon ThreeForMe, removes the outer layer of dead skin cells. This means sensitive, red skin that needs protection from the sun immediately after your treatment. (We liken it to feeling similar to a minor sunburn.) As you heal, you’ll need to give your body time to heal naturally. The downtime following the procedure can feel lengthy, but the results are so worth it — and that’s why now is the time to indulge.
Still, it’s important to note that not everyone will see optimal results after only one session and you may need up to three treatments spaced weeks apart to see your desired result. Don’t worry; each treatment only takes thirty minutes so you can plan your appointments during a lunch break.
Following your procedure expect to see results as soon as your skin begins healing — that means a few days! However, as progressive healing occurs your results will continue to improve as time goes on with optimal results appearing six months following the procedure. Patience pays.
