Definition - What does Affirm Laser mean?
The Affirm laser is a skin resurfacing laser. It is known as the Affirm Multiplex laser, which uses fractional technology. It uses two different wavelengths that work together to target multiple layers of skin. Multiple levels of heat intensity are distributed throughout the layers of skin to stimulate the production of collagen, which gives skin its youthful appearance.
TheConsultation explains Affirm Laser
With every pulse of the Affirm laser, the top layer of skin is treated to reduce fine lines, treat pores and even out skin tone. Deeper layers begin producing more collagen to reduce scarring and stretch marks, while also tightening the skin. Plus, it can be used on different areas of the body. This treatment works for all types of skin and requires minimal to no downtime. The number of treatments necessary will depend on the treatment and the amount of damage to the skin.
After the treatment is completed, you may experience some slight swelling and redness around the area that was treated. These symptoms usually go away in 48 hours. However, the discomfort during the procedure is less than with other treatment options, and healing time is also reduced. There may also be light peeling of the skin.
It usually takes two treatments before you notice visible results. New collagen will be generated for up to six months after your last treatment, which means it will need to be repeated for continued results. The Affirm Multiplex laser can also be used along with other skin treatments as part of a complete plan.
