If you have ever heard of fractional laser skin resurfacing, you know that it is one of the latest and most innovative ways to get rid of fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars and facial scars from injuries. The Affirm Mulitplex laser is the latest progressive enhancement to this convenient and fast way to better looking skin.
What Makes the Affirm Multiplex Laser So Effective?
The Affirm Multiplex laser system improves the skin with a laser beam that penetrates the lower layers of the skin. When these layers of skin are heated, the body’s immune system decodes it as a mild skin injury and sets about repairing the damage.
The body’s main defense against this minor injury is to speed up the production of collagen. Collagen is a connective tissue protein that is responsible for holding the entire body together. When large amounts of it are available in the skin, it has a strengthening and elasticizing effect on it. Collagen is most important for keeping skin tight, supple and looking young. As we age, the production of collagen begins to reduce at a significant level. This is what causes wrinkles and fine lines to develop.
When the heat penetrates the skin, it causes it to contract, which has an immediate tightening effect that lasts. This is what makes the healing process so much faster and greatly reduces any noticeable scar tissue that might be a result of undergoing this procedure. Any scar tissue that does develop heals very quickly.
Skin Conditions Treatable with Affirm Multiplex
Both women and men of any age can benefit greatly from the versatility of the Affirm Multiplex laser treatment. Our physicians treat a wide variety of skin conditions. These include the most common skin conditions on the face and neck like fine lines, wrinkles, sagging skin and sun-damaged skin.
Treatment is not just limited to the facial areas, though. The Affirm Multiplex laser can be used on areas of the body like the arms, stomach, inner thighs, and even knees. The appearance of stretch marks in these areas can be significantly reduced with the Affirm Multiplex laser treatment.
Acne scars are a major issue for both young and older women and men. The Affirm Multiplex laser can help reduce acne scarring ranging from the moderate to severe. Raised scarring resulting from injury, often called keloids, and are smoothed out easily. The tightening effects of the treatments are very useful for pore size reduction and incurved acne scarring.
In order to provide the best results to our patients, we arrange for multiple treatments to be conducted over a space of time. This gives the skin time to heal and gives us a clear indication of how to proceed with treatments on follow-up visits. Usually, this involves three to four treatments a month. However, for cases involving deeper wrinkles, scarring and other more severe skin conditions, sessions that are more frequent will be arranged.
