Non-surgical facelift with
3D Revitalize Therapy
WHAT IS 3D REVITALIZE THERAPY?
Introducing our 3D Revitalize Non-Surgical Facelift, the ultimate laser treatment for total facial rejuvenation! This aesthetic anti-aging treatment utilizes a three-tiered approach to address skin ailments and signs of aging at surface, mid, and deep levels of the dermis. It bolsters collagen and elastin production through the power of non-ablative lasers that work under the surface. 3D Revitalize Therapy is a safe and effective way to rekindle your youthful glow without going under the knife or suffering from maddening downtime and side effects.
WHY 3D REVITALIZE THERAPY?
Over time skin loses its elasticity, quality, and youthful glow as gravity and other environmental factors take effect. Aging is a process that everybody and their skin will eventually experience, and the outcome of the process will almost always be droopiness, sagging, redness, fine lines/wrinkles, sun or age spots, and other unappealing physical characteristics. Anyone who suffers from these can get the 3D Facelift to rejuvenate their look and to bring the youth gesture back into their life.
WHAT CAN 3D REVITALIZE THERAPY TREAT?
Anybody and everybody is welcome to get 3D Revitalize treatment to improve their skin. Although, most commonly clients with fine lines/wrinkles, sagging skin, brown spots, redness, and other such ailments are patrons for treatment. However, treatment is an option for correction of these conditions as well as prevention of these conditions, meaning that clients without these ailments are welcome to get treatment.
The most popular areas for treatment are the face and neck, but other body parts such as the hands, arms, and abdomen are also frequently treated.
HOW DOES 3D REVITALIZE THERAPY WORK?
The three-tiered approach of 3D Revitalize Therapy accumulates benefits from three different rejuvenating laser treatments.
IPL (Intense Pulse Light) Photofacial – this is a light-based procedure that addresses problems at a superficial level of the dermis, such as redness, spots of sun damage, freckles, and fine lines.
Laser Genesis – this utilizes a laser to penetrate a mid-layer of the dermis to stimulate collagen production. The result is softening of fine lines and wrinkles, diminishing of scars, and decrease of deep-set redness, and overall improvement of skin texture.
Laser Titan – this is the final tier of treatment and the laser that penetrates the deepest into the dermis. Titan uses infrared light to heat tissue in a deep level of the dermis in order to tighten loose or sagging skin, improve skin elasticity, and stimulate deep collagen production.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT FROM 3D REVITALIZE TREATMENT?
It is comforting to know what to expect with a treatment that includes deeply penetrating laser energy, so we have detailed pre- and post- treatment instructions below so our clients can come into their appointments confident and ready.
It is highly recommended to consult with one of our aesthetic professionals here at Lavande prior to booking your 3D Revitalize Therapy appointment, where a personal evaluation synthesizing your medical history and aesthetic goals should be completed. This is to determine the best course of action for your aesthetic needs, determine what treatment is best for your skin type, and to prepare you for your what is to come. We here at Lavande want to make sure you are a candidate for this treatment as well as confident about your decision to proceed.
In preparation, we may ask that you abstain from taking or applying any harsh medications (such as Accutane or Retinol), so as to avoid the occurrence of negative side effects. We may also ask that you abstain from taking bloodthinners or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications (such as alcoholic drinks, Ibuprofen, Aspirin, Advil, Aleve, Fish Oil, Vitamin E, and others) to lower the risk of post-procedure bruising. We will also ask that you refrain from getting direct sun exposure for about a week or 2 prior to treatment.
The treatment area will be examined by our skilled and knowledgeable practitioner before treatment, and private “before” pictures will be taken for comparison purposes and kept in your profile. Topical numbing is unnecessary.
WHEN WILL I SEE TREATMENT RESULTS?
3D Revitalize Therapy is a 5 session treatment, and while clients will be able to immediately see a vibrant glow to their skin following each treatment, it will take time to see the cumulative results of each treatment in tandem. Collagen and elastin production will begin to show about 4 weeks after treatment, and will increase as results build off of each other. After all sessions are complete, clients can enjoy incremental improvement for up to 6 months. Treatments will be space apart every 4-6 weeks.
HOW LONG WILL MY RESULTS LAST?
While clients will be able to enjoy improvements over a lengthy period of time, no matter how effective the treatment is maintenance will be necessary. This is because you will still be going through the aging process, so your skin will likely return to the state it was in when treatment was pursued within a couple years of the treatment. The good news is that there will not be any sudden effects when the results begin to fade with the aging process, because that youthful glow was something that was produced by your body itself with a little help from the 3D Revitalize Therapy.
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
IPL delivers a series of light pulses which are bright and slightly painful. With each pulse of light, clients may feel a mild, brief pinching sensation as well as see a series of flashes.
Laser Genesis is a gentle and soothing treatment. During treatment clients will feel a series of warm pulses along the surface of your skin and areas of prolonged warmth where the laser is targeted, but it is quite tolerable.
With each Titan pulse, clients first feel coolness, followed by a brief heating sensation and then another cool feeling. Most clients are comfortable without taking any medication prior to treatment; a few prefer taking a mild pain reliever beforehand.
Preparation includes avoiding direct sun exposure for a week or 2 prior to treatment, abstaining from taking or applying harsh products (such as Accutane or Retinol), and avoiding bloodthinners. These precautions will ensure that the recovery process is smooth and devoid of unwelcome side effects, and that your skin is ready to accept the intense energy that the lasers will emit.
Clients will be able to resume daily activities immediately following treatment, but clients must take care of their post-treatment skin to avoid any undesirable side effects. There might be slight redness at treatment sites immediately after, but these usually subside within hours.
Clients should actively avoid direct sun exposure, and be sure to diligently apply a strong sunscreen at all times. Further, clients should not get facial treatments or apply any harsh products to their skin for up to 4 weeks. Your skin will be very sensitive throughout this recovery time.
The standard regimen is 5 treatments long, with 3 sessions of Titan, 5 sessions of Genesis, and 2 sessions of IPL. Clients would get Genesis every session, and Titan and IPL interchangeably. Most clients need to return for maintenance touchups after some time.
Our knowledgeable providers here at Lavande Spa can sit down with you and create a regimen that is right for you in order to make sure you achieve and maintain that flawless skin you’re looking for.
