Affirm Laser Treatment At Okanagan Skin

Kelowna Affirm, Kelowna Affirm Laser, Kelowna Skin Clinic

Are you tired of looking tired? Fine lines, wrinkles, and loose skin can take away from the appearance of health and vitality. If you’re looking for a nonsurgical way to turn back the clock, consider adding Affirm laser treatments to your arsenal.


How Does It Work?

Affirm laser is part of the Cynosure Multiplex Affirm Laser Skin Rejuvenation System. At our clinic in Kelowna, we use affirm to treat patients with mild to moderate signs of aging or skin texture issues.

This laser is non-ablative, meaning it does not abrade or “peel” the skin.

The laser uses two different wavelengths, 1440 and 1320 nanometers. These work in tandem to heat both the deep and superficial layers of the skin. This thermal heat stimulates the growth of new collagen and elastin. In terms of results, this enhances both the visible appearance of the skin and its underlying structure. 

 

How Do I Determine If Affirm Is The Laser Treatment For Me?

At our Kelowna skin clinic, Affirm is just one of many laser rejuvenation options. Which rejuvenation option best meets your needs depends on skin quality and texture.   

Affirm can help treat:

  • fine lines and wrinkles
  • loose or inelastic skin
  • rough skin
  • pigmentation issues or redness

 

How Should I Prepare For An Affirm Rejuvenation Session?

Most patients do not require a significant amount of preparation for this procedure. However, if you have active acne or other unresolved skin issues, your skincare specialist might advise you to wait before undergoing treatment. Additionally,

This procedure takes under an hour, but our Kelowna affirm specialists do caution that some patients might experience some slight redness after treatment, so it is best not to schedule any significant events or outings for 24-28 hours after the treatment.

When you arrive at our skin care clinic, our nurses will apply topical anesthetic cream to the area being treated.

Next, the laser, combined with cool air, will be applied to the treated area. Some patients feel a slight prickling or stinging sensation, but most find it comfortable.

Most patients notice firmer, tighter, and smoother skin in just two treatments, although in some cases it can take 6 treatments to achieve optimal results.

 

Post-Treatment

You should also plan to update your skincare routine a few days after your Affirm laser rejuvenation treatment. For about five days after treatment, avoid makeup and harsh cleansers. When washing the face, ensure that you avoid scrubbing the skin too extensively.

Additionally, patients who have had an Affirm laser treatment should avoid direct sun exposure for the first several weeks of their procedure. As soon as your skin has healed enough, you should apply a broad-spectrum, high-SPF sunscreen. If you find that liquid formulas irritate your skin, consider investing in a mineral sunscreen powder.

Finally, you can preserve your results for longer by maintaining healthy eating habits, avoiding excessive sun exposure, and by avoiding smoking.
