AffirmIntroducing the Affirm Anti-Aging Workstation with SmartCool, the finest skin rejuvenation system available today.  The Affirm laser offers "Next-Generation" Fractional Technology for non-invasive skin resurfacing and tightening.  Fine lines and wrinkles, loose skin, sun-damaged skin, acne scars, surgical scars, stretch marks and melasma can all be treated with this amazing new technology!

You may have heard of laser peels with a CO2 or Erbium laser, which represented the first generation of skin resurfacing.  These treatments were "ablative", as they actually burned off superficial layers of the skin, and there was a significant amount of pain and several days-to-weeks of down-time associated with these treatments.  Next came "fractional" laser resurfacing - a technique in which a "non-ablative" laser is fitted with a special lens. The lens breaks up the laser beam into multiple smaller parts, so that adjacent tiny areas of the skin are either heated or not heated. This selective heating of the skin in certain spots while sparing adjacent areas results in healing with collagen remodeling, smoothing out fine line and wrinkles. The first generation of fractional skin lasers was Fraxel laser. However, Fraxel laser treatments sometimes require the application of a dye, and can be quite painful, with significant down time.

The Affirm™ laser represents a significant advancement in fractional laser resurfacing technology.  The first-generation Affirm™ lasers used a single 1440 nm Nd:YAG laser wavelength to achieve great results.  The Affirm™ Multiplex workstation, which we feature at CT CosMedic, combines the 1440 nm laser with a second 1320nm laser wavelength using Cynosure's Combined Apex Pulse™ (CAP) and MultiPlex technology.  The combination of the two wavelengths, pulsed closely one after another through the specially-designed 1,000 micro-lens hand-piece not only reduces fine lines and wrinkles, but also tightens skin, as the 1320 wavelength penetrates deeper into the tissue.  Thus, you get a combination of fractional skin resurfacing toward the surface of the skin and deeper tissue heating for skin tightening.  In addition to these benefits, the Nd:YAG laser wavelengths target pigmented sun-damaged areas, improving their appearance.

 

What does this all mean?  With the Affirm™, we can successfully treat

Typically, 3-5 treatments are recommended.  Each treatment takes approximately 30-60 minutes.  We offer a topical anesthetic cream to all patients, although this is not always necessary. Most patients describe any discomfort as mild. The area treated will look and feel like it is mildly sun-burned for 24-48 hours.  Makeup can be applied the next day, so there is really no down time associated with this laser.  Treatments are generally done 3-6 weeks apart.  Improvement continues for weeks after the treatments are finished, and results are long-lasting.
