What is Affirm?
Affirm is a revolutionary laser treatment to rejuvenate aging and damaged skin. This laser stimulates the production of collagen in the body, revealing glowing, youthful-looking skin. This procedure can treat many areas of the body, including the face, neck, chest, arms, hands, and legs. It can also treat a wide array of skin conditions, including sunspots, brown spots, age spots, scarring, stretch marks, and fine lines and wrinkles.
How Are Affirm Treatments Done?
During treatment, a topical anesthetic is applied to the treatment area to ensure patient comfort. The Affirm laser will be passed over the treatment areas to treat damaged and aging skin cells. It also treats the deeper layers of the skin to improve skin’s elasticity as well. This will stimulate the body’s production of collagen, replacing old cells with new, fresh skin cells.
Affirm delivers two laser wavelengths in one pulse, which means faster results that are still effective. This results in treatments are more comfortable and faster compared to other laser treatments. Most patients will require 3-5 Affirm treatment sessions held 2-6 weeks apart to see desired results.
Following an Affirm treatment, patients may feel “sunburnt” on the treatment area, though this should dissipate within a few hours. Visible redness, swelling, itching, and flakiness may also occur temporarily. It is advised that patients avoid sunlight and wear sunscreen for a few weeks following treatment.
Overall, patients will experience smoother, more youthful-looking skin following treatments. If you are interested in improving your complexion with Affirm treatments in the Louisville or Lexington area, contact us today to schedule your initial consultation.
