What is the 3 For Me Refresh?
Fine lines, age spots, and visible veins are just a few common concerns that come with aging skin. The 3 For Me Refresh combines intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy with the ICON resurfacing laser to “Refresh” these 3 concerns, hence the name 3 For Me Refresh. Even gentler than the traditional 3 For Me treatment, with combined laser energy, collagen is stimulated to smooth the skin, while surface level redness and hyperpigmentation are treated to create an even complexion.
Who is a Candidate for 3 For Me Refresh?
3 For Me Refresh is ideal for patients that want a quick rejuvenation of the skin without downtime. It is a gentler version of the original 3 For Me. The Refresh version still offers improvement of brown spots, sun spots, redness, and fine lines using laser energy to heat the skin. The 3 For Me Refresh is quick and comfortable, making it easy to fit into busy routines. Dr. Jennifer Janiga or her associates can meet with you to determine if the 3 For Me Refresh is right for you.
ThreeForMe™ Refresh is a quick treatment to treat redness, brown spots, and collagen.
At Janiga MDs, Dr. Timothy Janiga specializes in plastic surgery and Dr. Jennifer Janiga specializes in dermatology, giving their practice a unique, comprehensive perspective on their patients’ cosmetic needs in the Reno, Nevada area.
For the 3 For Me Refresh, numbing is not necessary so you will come in and get started after your face is cleaned. Dr. Jennifer or her associates will select the appropriate laser settings, using gentler energy to treat your skin concerns. Laser energy will target the pigment and redness in the outer layers of skin, while deeper layers are targeted to stimulate new collagen growth. This procedure only requires about 30 minutes out of your day, making it the perfect “lunch time” procedure.
Difference between a 3 For Me and a 3 For Me Refresh
3 For Me Refresh uses the same lasers and targets the same problems as the 3 For Me, but at lower settings. The Refresh is designed for those people who prefer to have a series of milder quicker treatments rather than one longer and more intense treatment. These milder treatments allow less downtime and a quicker return to normal activities than the more intense 3 For Me. In general, 3-4 3 For Me Refresh treatments is equivalent to one 3 For Me treatment.
Results and Recovery
There is no downtime needed after the 3 For Me Refresh so patients can get right back to their regular routine. Some mild redness and swelling may be present for a few hours following treatment. Over the next several weeks, you can enjoy smoother, refreshed skin as new collagen and healthier skin cells are produced. One treatment session will give you improvements, but for optimal results, most patients will have 3-4 treatment sessions per year as maintenance.
