Are you tired of dealing with skin issues like sun damage, hyperpigmentation, and uneven texture? If so, you’ll be thrilled to know that our ultimate 3D Renew treatment offers a powerful and effective solution for achieving a flawless, youthful complexion.
3D Renew combines Limelight IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) and Laser Genesis, customised to your needs. Limelight IPL addresses various concerns, including sun damage and hyperpigmentation, while Laser Genesis smooths fine lines and wrinkles. Together, they improve skin health and appearance, leaving you refreshed and glowing. Unlike treatments with downtime, 3D Renew has none, allowing you to resume your routine immediately. Regular sessions provide long-lasting benefits, boosting your confidence in your skin. Say goodbye to skin issues and hello to a radiant, rejuvenated look.
IPL stands for Intense Pulsed Light, a non-invasive skin treatment that uses broad-spectrum light to address a wide range of concerns, including sun damage, hyperpigmentation, redness, and vascular lesions. The IPL device emits multiple wavelengths of light, targeting specific pigments in the skin and stimulating collagen production. This results in improved skin tone, reduced pigmentation, and overall skin rejuvenation.
Laser Genesis, on the other hand, is a non-ablative laser treatment that utilises the Nd:YAG laser to gently heat the deeper layers of the skin. The controlled heat from the laser stimulates collagen production, leading to smoother, firmer, and more youthful-looking skin. Laser Genesis is particularly effective in addressing concerns like fine lines, wrinkles, and uneven skin texture.
3D Renew combines both treatment options to target a range of concerns.
The results of 3D Renew can last for several months to a year or longer. However, ageing and new skin damage may occur, requiring maintenance treatments. Longevity can be influenced by post-treatment skincare, such as using sunscreen and avoiding excessive sun exposure. Results vary among individuals, with some experiencing longer-lasting effects and others needing more frequent treatments.
3D Renew treatments are generally not painful, but some patients may experience mild discomfort. During Limelight IPL, a mild stinging or snapping sensation may be felt, usually well-tolerated and reduced with topical anaesthetic. Laser Genesis may cause a mild warming or tingling sensation, typically comfortable without anaesthesia or numbing cream. Overall, most patients tolerate 3D Renew well. If concerned about discomfort, discuss pain management options with our Fitzrovia team before treatment.
Prepare for 3D Renew treatment to achieve optimal results and minimise side effects:
- Avoid sun exposure for four weeks before IPL.
- Avoid tanning products for two weeks.
- Inform about medications, especially photosensitizers.
- Stop using retinoids and AHAs.
- Shave treatment areas if needed.
- Arrive with clean, makeup-free skin.
In general, the downtime after a 3D Renew treatment is minimal, and most patients are able to resume their normal activities immediately after the procedure. However, it’s important to avoid direct sun exposure and to wear sunscreen to protect the skin in the treated area from further damage.
Some patients may experience some redness and swelling in the treated area. This is a normal response and should subside within a few hours to a few days. A minority may also experience mild bruising, crusting, or flaking of the skin in the treated area.
3D Renew is generally safe and effective, but like any medical procedure, it carries some risks and side effects:
- Redness and Swelling: Normal after treatment, usually gone in hours to days.
- Changes in Skin Colour: Darkening or lightening can occur, more common in darker skin tones.
- Blistering and Burns: Rare, but possible.
