Anti Aging Laser Treatment
Anti-Aging laser treatments are taken to the next level and beyond with the exclusive Combined Apex Pulse (CAP) technology found in the Cynosure Affirm™ system at Clinic 360. The Cynosure Affirm is a non-ablative fractional light energy device that allows for an effective treatment when dealing with acne scars, among other things such as wrinkles and texture and tone concerns.
The CAP system utilizes a range of specially designed lights which can penetrate the skin in a fractional method to reach its desired effects and provide incredible results.
The Cynosure Affirm MPX Laser
The Cynosure Affirm MPX laser can be used to treat fine lines and wrinkles, age spots, sun-damaged skin, stretch marks and improve skin texture.
A topical anesthetic is usually applied prior to treatment, and cool air is applied as well which makes the treatment comfortable and acceptable to all.
The Cynosure Affirm MPX laser utilizes a wavelength of light at 1440 nm which targets the water in the skin. A second wavelength, at 1320 nm, has been shown to be advantageous for skin tightening. Thus the Cynosure Affirm MPX allows for the improvement in your lines and wrinkles and scars, and provides tissue tightening as well – all in one device.
Because it is non-ablative, downtime is insignificant with most patients experiencing some redness for only a day or so following the treatment. The number of treatments that are needed will also vary, but because it is non-ablative, most require 4-6 treatments for best results.

Laser Treatment suitable for all Skin types

The Affirm works by inserting micro-pulses of light to the skin’s dermis to aid in collagen stimulation, correction of wrinkles, acne scars, and sun damage. Common side effects are mild redness that usually resolves in just a few hours. A less common side effect is mild puffiness and swelling that quickly resolves.
