ThreeForMe Q & A

What is the ThreeForMe laser treatment?

ThreeForMe is a unique laser treatment that’s only available with Cynosure’s Icon™ Aesthetic System. When you come to Vanity Klinic for a ThreeForMe treatment, three of the most common skin problems are addressed with one procedure: wrinkles, sun damage, and facial veins.

Your ThreeForMe session treats:

  • Sun spots
  • Freckles
  • Brown age spots
  • Redness due to rosacea
  • Spider veins
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Scars

How does ThreeForMe work?

During your ThreeForMe session, Dr. Ucheagwu makes two passes over your skin with the Icon laser:

First pass to treat sun damage and facial veins

The first pass uses Icon’s intense pulsed light (IPL) technology to treat brown spots, freckles, and age spots, as well as spider veins and rosacea.

During this treatment, the laser operates at a wavelength that’s absorbed by the brown and red pigments, while leaving the surrounding skin unharmed. As pigments absorb laser energy, they’re heated until they reach the temperature that makes them break down.

After the discolored cells are destroyed, your body carries the waste away, permanently eliminating the problem.

Second pass to treat fine lines and wrinkles

During the second pass, the Icon uses microbeam laser technology that renews your skin by stimulating new collagen and elastin production. These two proteins give your skin strength and resilience.

As old skin is replaced with new skin containing higher levels of collagen and elastin, its improved structure reduces the appearance of scars, fine lines, and wrinkles.

What should you expect during ThreeForMe treatment?

Your ThreeForMe session only takes 30 minutes. Although most patients tolerate the procedure, Dr. Ucheagwu may provide topical numbing cream or cooling packs to ensure your comfort.

After your session is finished, your skin may be slightly red and swollen like a sunburn, but that goes away in a few days. In the meantime, you can wear makeup to cover the redness.

When will you see results?

You may see the loss of facial veins immediately. Age spots darken right after treatment, then it takes one to three weeks for them to flake off before you’ll see the results.

It takes a little longer to see the improvement in fine lines, wrinkles, and scars. Your body needs time to produce collagen and elastin, so you’ll notice progressive results over the next six months.
