What is the ThreeForMe™ Refresh?
Fine lines, age spots, and visible veins are just a few common concerns that come with aging skin. The ThreeForMe™ Refresh combines intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy with the ICON resurfacing laser to “Refresh” these 3 concerns, hence the name ThreeForMe™ Refresh. Even gentler than the traditional ThreeForMe™ 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.
Difference between a ThreeForMe™ and a ThreeForMe™ Refresh
ThreeForMe™ Refresh uses the same lasers and targets the same problems as the ThreeForMe™, 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 ThreeForMe™. In general, 3-4 ThreeForMe™ Refresh treatments is equivalent to one ThreeForMe™ treatment.
Candidates for the ThreeForMe™ Refresh
ThreeForMe™ Refresh is ideal for patients that want a quick rejuvenation of the skin without downtime. It is a gentler version of the original ThreeForMe™. The Refresh version still offers improvement of brown spots, sun spots, redness, and fine lines using laser energy to heat the skin. The ThreeForMe™ Refresh is quick and comfortable, making it easy to fit into busy routines. Dr. Jennifer Janiga or nurse practitioner Darci Page can meet with you to determine if the ThreeForMe™ Refresh is right for you.
IPL Treatment with Dr. Jennifer Janiga
Intense Pulsed Light laser treatments can be used for a variety of skin conditions.
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 ThreeForMe™ Refresh, numbing is not necessary so you will come in and get started after your face is cleaned. Dr. Jennifer or Darci Page, NP-C 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.
Results and Recovery
There is no downtime needed after the ThreeForMe™ 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.
