With the Affirm system, the great benefit is that you get two laser treatments simultaneously. The Fraxel and most similar systems are generally 1540nm wavelength laser that emit fractional energy 800 microns to 1600 microns into the skin.
Affirm laser rejuvenation treatment emits two wavelengths, one that most of the energy ends up at 300 microns (where the layer of sun damage is that we want to improve) and the other a very deep 2000-3000 microns for the ultimate in deeper tissue tightening and skin rejuvenation. The Affirm “Multiplex” laser is actually two “Fractioned” lasers in one treatment.
The “Gold Standard” wavelength for scars many of the world’s experts agree is the 1320nm wavelength.
Affirm laser has BOTH a 1320nm and a 1440nm wavelength combined in a single “multiplexed treatment”. This is similar to having an optimally effective Fractional rejuvenation and deep tissue tightening in one fast, comfortable treatment.
This Affirm non-ablative fractional laser is the only one of its kind with the world’s only patented “Multiplex” technology which simultaneously emits two lasers sequentially for optimal micro-rejuvenation and deep laser skin tightening and revision of acne scarring.
Affirm laser skin rejuvenation treatment works by tricking the skin to believing it is wounded prompting a “healing response”. The new super-fast, 1000 pinpoints of laser light in each large spot is the newest, lightning fast, unique “Multiplex” (patented) technology laser to allow for no prep time, no pain and no downtime laser resurfacing that will tighten, and rejuvenate your skin by reducing and improving the appearance of wrinkles, scars, stretch marks, acne scars and a variety of skin problems.
A number of our clients at The Laser and Skin Clinic have switched over from Fraxel to the Affirm laser rejuvenation. The majority of clients have noted that Affirm skin rejuvenation treatments are far more comfortable than Fraxel and even when using both lasers at once they have said that the results they from their Affirm treatments have been far superior.
