What Is Affirm?
Affirm is an anti-aging treatment that involves using a fractional resurfacing laser to target damaged and old skin cells. It can be used to treat a variety of problems, including brown spots, age spots, sun spots, scars and wrinkles. It rejuvenates the skin and reveals fresh glowing skin.
One of the many great things about Affirm is that the laser can be adjusted to meet the needs of the individual. Regardless of whether a person needs a mild or aggressive treatment, he or she can benefit from Affirm. This allows the patient to recover in a shorter amount of time.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
Because everyone is different, the number of treatments needed can vary from patient to patient. Studies have shown that people who get the best results typically get between three and five treatments. Treatments are typically spaced between two and six weeks apart. During your consultation, our team will work with you to determine the most effective and appropriate treatment schedule for your needs.
The Ideal Candidate for Affirm
People who want to reduce skin imperfections and want fresher, healthier-looking skin will benefit from getting Affirm. If you struggle with wrinkles, sagging skin or acne scars you could benefit from Affirm laser treatment. Because Affirm is a non-ablative treatment, it does not wound the skin. Instead it tightens the collagen under the skin to reveal tighter-looking skin. Our medical team will determine if Affirm is right for you. We can customize a treatment plan that is tailored to your individual needs.
It typically takes 24 hours to recover from Affirm. You will be able to return to your normal activities after you have recovered. However, it is still important for you to limit your sun exposure, so you avoid sun damage. We always recommend that you wear a sunscreen with a SPF of at least 30 in order to prevent sunburn and additional sun damage.
Side Effects of Affirm
Affirm is an extremely safe treatment because it is non-invasive. However, it can cause mild side effects. Flakiness, redness dryness and mild itching are some of the possible side effects of Affirm. These are considered normal side effects and will clear up over time.
