Affirm Laser is an anti-aging treatment effective for skin tightening and targeting wrinkles, fine lines, dark spots, hyperpigmentation, and redness. The "Affirm" treatment has a high success rate for resurfacing and rejuvenating skin on the face, around the eyes, mouth, neck, chest and hands.
Affirm Laser system made by Cynosure combines non-ablative fractional and pulsed light technology to achieve comprehensive skin resurfacing, rejuvenation and tightening. Affirm laser provides maximum anti-aging benefits with the least possible amount of downtime. Affirm improves skin tone and texture by treating a variety of skin conditions in a series of 3 -6 treatments.
The Affirm Laser system utilizes different laser wavelengths to provide effective treatment for different skin problems. Unlike most fractional laser treatments Affirm is relatively painless and requires topical anesthesia or nerve blocks. Skin is continuously cooled throughout the treatment, so pain and discomfort are minimized. Affirm Laser treatments take less time and have less skin reaction immediately following treatments.
Most patients may return to work and normal activities immediately following treatment, however sun protection should be used and outdoor activities should be avoided for the first 24 hours. Redness and swelling are the most common side effects after an Affirm treatment, however they are typically mild and disappear within hours or a few days.

If you are prone to cold sores, preventative measures will be taken prior to your treatment, as this and other laser skin resurfacing procedures trigger eruption of sores. It takes approximately 3-4 Affirm Laser treatments to see significant results, although some skin improvement can be seen as early as your first treatment. If you have questions about Affirm Laser treatment, schedule a consultation with our certified aesthetician at Bonita Medical Center 505-988-2121.
