What can you accomplish in 30 minutes? It doesn’t sound like much time when you think about it. Thirty minutes is about the length of a TV sitcom or a quick workday lunch break. But it’s also how long it takes to say goodbye to tired, dull skin and hello to a more youthful-looking you, thanks to a new procedure at Janiga MDs.
In as little as a single office visit, this revolutionary new laser treatment will change what you see in the mirror for the better. People have long assumed that the brown spots, redness and wrinkles on our face were simple facts of life, and that while you could take steps to prevent further damage, you couldn’t reverse them. ThreeForMe™ turns the tables on that idea with a simple, 30-minute procedure.
Given that we lose one percent of our skin’s collagen each year after 30 and that 80 percent of all wrinkles are caused by exposure to the sun, ThreeForMe™ is here to combat what we previously considered natural parts of aging. Using Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) technology with the ICON resurfacing laser, ThreeForMe™ solves three problems at once: sun damage and brown spots, wrinkles and facial veins.
Dr. Jennifer Janiga has been performing this combination of treatments in different variations for the past two years. With more and more success came ThreeForMe™, a combined treatment of three lasers in one treatment for clients seeking to improve the visible effects of sun exposure. In the first step of the process, Dr. Janiga addresses brown skin discoloration with specific tailored settings for your skin type and brown areas. Second, facial veins that have been caused by sun exposure and everyday toxins are treated using the MaxG ICON specific tip. Third, she then turns her attention to your wrinkles and collagen with an erbium microbeam laser designed to stimulate collagen and elastin production.
Is it painful? Not particularly. While there is some mild discomfort including a cooling sensation during the procedure and a warming feeling afterward, most patients experience a feeling similar to the snapping of a rubber band against skin during the procedure. You might also expect a little redness and swelling – not unlike what you’d get with a sunburn – but these issues typically resolve in a couple of days. Even better, ThreeForMe™ is such a quick procedure, you can return to work the same day.
As for results, they’re pretty impressive. Most patients need between one and three treatments to get maximum results. After the first treatment, you’ll notice improvement to the facial veins. Then, the brown spots will darken before falling off, leaving you with a youthful glow you haven’t seen in years. The collagen stimulation continues for six months after your treatment so the fine lines and wrinkles of your face will show dramatic improvement as your skin responds to the treatment.
