Three for Me Q & A

What is ThreeforMe?

ThreeforMe is a specialist aesthetic laser technology that addresses common skin problems, such as:

  • Wrinkles
  • Fine lines
  • Crow’s feet
  • Sunspots
  • Spider veins
  • Freckles
  • Age spots
  • Broken blood vessels
  • Rosacea
  • Scars
  • Skin blemishes

The laser used in ThreeforMe uses both Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) technology and microbeam laser technology to provide an effective form of skin rejuvenation.

How does ThreeforMe work?

The laser targets skin blemishes in two stages called passes. The first pass uses IPL to reduce discoloration of the skin and the appearance of facial veins. The second pass uses microbeam technology that stimulates new collagen and elastin production. Increased collagen and elastin levels improve the skin’s tautness and reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles.

Is ThreeforMe safe?

ThreeforMe is an approved form of laser treatment for skin blemishes that’s proven to be safe and effective in clinical trials, so it’s considered a very low-risk option. ThreeforMe laser therapy is safe for most skin types, but if there are any potential risks for an individual patient, Dr. Benz goes over these with you at your consultation.

Does ThreeforMe laser therapy hurt?

Most patients report feeling little or no discomfort during the procedure. You may feel a cooling effect on your skin as the laser passes over the treatment area or a slight tingling sensation. Dr. Benz uses topical numbing cream or cool gel packs to minimize any discomfort during the procedure.

Following your treatment, you may notice some redness on your skin and slight swelling of your face, but these effects are short-lived, typically disappearing within the first few days.

How many ThreeforMe treatments will I need?

The number of sessions you need in total depends on your skin condition and what the treatment is targeting. Average duration time for a course of treatment is up to three sessions over a three-month period, and each session lasts for around 30 minutes.

Dr. Benz creates a personalized treatment plan for every client and talks you through the likely timeframes and outcomes at your consultation. ThreeforMe treatments don’t require any downtime, and you can carry on your day as normal after each session.

How soon will I notice a difference in my skin?

You should see an immediate improvement in facial vein reduction after treatment, and brown spots darken and fall off over the first couple of weeks. As collagen and elastin levels increase over the following months, you’ll see a gradual improvement in fine lines, wrinkles, and scars, until your skin looks rejuvenated and revitalized.
