Medical Reports: Triple Threat
Sagging skin, brown spots, wrinkles those three things alone can all make us look tired and just plain old. Now, there's a new treatment that targets all those problems at once. Seven's Diana Diaz shows us this Triple Threat for aging faces.
WSVN -- Rachel Zelcher is only 35-years-old, but the mirror told a different story about her looks.
Rachel Zelcher "I looked tired. I don't look my age, I thought I looked older."
She had sun damage and her skin looked dull and wrinkled.
Rachel Zelcher: "I did the nightlife for a long time. I also used to smoke a pack of cigarettes a day for 16 years. I looked like a train wreck."
Now that she's changed her lifestyle and quit smoking he wanted to reverse the bad effects on her face.
Rachel Zelcher: "I wanted the face lift without anything invasive."
She did some research and found out about the new trinity laser treatment that is non-invasive. During the procedure, you get three different laser treatments in one hour.
Dr. Mark Sachs, Cosmetic Surgery Associates: "It's a triple threat that works at all different levels of the skin to produce a total facial rejuvenation."
The first laser is the IPL laser, which targets freckling and sun damage.
Dr. Mark Sachs: "The second laser is the ST laser. It induces the production of collagen and tightens the collagen that is already present in the face. The third laser the MATRIX IR produces fractionated light, which works deeply to etch out fine lines and wrinkles."
You'll need three treatments spaced four weeks apart. There is no downtime and results are supposed to be long-lasting.
Dr. Mark Sachs: "You can put off a facelift for years and even potentially forever."
Rachel saw a difference after her second treatment, and now she sees a different face looking back at her in the mirror.
Rachel Zelcher: "I look refreshed. I look like I lifted all these years off my skin."
Diana Diaz: "The trinity treatment costs anywhere from $1,500 to $2,500."
