ThreeForMe Q & A

What is ThreeForMe?

ThreeForMe is a powerful, yet gentle laser treatment that addresses three of the most common age-related skin conditions: sun damage, wrinkles, and visible facial veins. As you age, years of sun exposure, environmental and lifestyle factors, and other contributors, often leave your skin looking dull, tired, and unevenly pigmented. The Icon Aesthetic System from CynoSure®, a leader in the field of medical aesthetics, combines both laser energy and intense pulsed light (IPL) energy to target discoloration, lines, and wrinkles.

ThreeForMe is an ideal solution for:

  • Discoloration from sun damage
  • Age spots
  • Freckles
  • Rosacea
  • Broken blood vessels and visible veins
  • Lost elasticity
  • Acne or surgical scarring
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Surface imperfections

Dr. Sripada customizes a ThreeForMe treatment plan to address all of these skin concerns and give you a rejuvenated, glowing appearance with just a few simple treatments.

How does ThreeForMe work?

ThreeForMe is a unique solution for aging skin because it uses both laser energy and IPL energy to improve the appearance of your skin. In this two-step procedure, Dr. Sripada first uses IPL energy to treat areas of uneven pigment, dark spots, and visible veins in your face. In the second step, she uses laser energy to penetrate deep below the surface of your skin to generate new collagen and elastin.

As you age, you lose about 1% of your natural collagen each year. The laser energy stimulates your skin tissue to produce new collagen and elastin to improve the support structure of your skin. As a result, your skin appears fresher, firmer, and smoother. Lines and wrinkles seem to fade into the background along with acne scars and blemishes.

In the weeks that follow each ThreeForMe laser and IPL treatments, your skin continues to regenerate healthier, younger cells from within, so your sun-damaged, dull skin is replaced with brighter, more evenly toned skin. As an added bonus, there’s little to no downtime, so you can get optimal results with minimal interruption to your busy schedule.

How many treatments will I need to notice an improvement?

Many women and men notice a rejuvenated appearance in their skin after the first ThreeForMe treatment! Typically, though, you can benefit from 1-3 appointments spaced about a month apart. Dr. Sripada recommends a number of treatments based on the results you’d like to achieve, but don’t be surprised if you see a difference after each ThreeForMe session.
