Three for Me
What is Three for Me?
This is a way to bundle three effective skin treatments which target:
- Visible broken blood vessels
- Pigmentation variation from sun damage
- Wrinkles and lines
It’s specifically packaged to target these concerns on the face.
How does it work?
Using laser technology, beams of infrared light are directed towards the visible targets. Depending on the matter being treated, the laser can be calibrated to:
- Shrink broken blood vessels beneath the surface
- Increase collagen and elastin production to increase the elasticity of the skin to decrease wrinkles or lines
- Even minimize variations in pigmentation to give the skin a more even tone after years of sun damage.
Is it safe?
- Because the rays of light used are infrared, not ultraviolet (like what you would see in a tanning bed), they are not damaging to the skin. For your protection, eyewear is provided to you to protect your eyes, since they’re one area of your body vulnerable to infrared light rays.
- As far as sensation is concerned, the different wavelengths of light used to target different concerns can feel somewhat different when compared to one another. Plus, everyone has their own ways of perceiving sensations. However, descriptions of it have included a light pinching or pricking sensation. What’s important to note is that, though it may feel as though there is something pricking or pinching the skin, that is not actually the case. The laser sits smoothly against the skin’s surface, providing a cooling sensation to dissipate heat, When it does emit light the brief moment of heat is what is transferred to the skin.
What results can I expect?

How Do I Prepare for a Treatment?
- To ensure proper contact with the laser, trimming of any facial prior to your treatment is essential.
- Spare your skin from damage, and be sure to refrain from any significant sun exposure or tanning for at least 2 weeks prior to the treatment. This isn’t to say you can’t go outside, of course, but be sure to wear sunblock to protect your skin, and use protective clothing to keep covered, when possible.
- Be sure to not use any retinoids within two weeks of a treatment. This includes oral retinoids, like Accutane, as well as topical retinoids, such as Tretinoin or Retin-A. This is due to the increased cell turnover these products have on the skin, which makes the skin particularly vulnerable to light waves.
- Drink plenty of water prior to the appointment so your skin is well hydrated.
What’s the Recovery Like?
- It’s expected for one’s skin to be a bit pink and feel warm, following a treatment. Some describe the sensation afterwards as a sunburn, but it typically subsides within the initial 24-48 hours.
- Be kind to your skin after a treatment by drinking plenty of water, using moisturizing lotion to prevent water-loss during its healing phase, and protect it with sunblock consistently.
