skin faceDescription: The non-invasive Affirm cosmetic laser treatment effectively eradicates signs of wrinkles, photo aging and skin discolourations that time and sun have wrought. The Affirm also treats acne scars and mature wound scars, resulting in improved skin texture and tone.

How it's done: The Affirm laser tip is placed directly on the skin and uses combined heat intensities to stimulate and remodel collagen production, while promoting a tightening effect through tissue coagulation from sessions that last 15 to 30 minutes. Patients may require anywhere from three to six treatments to achieve desired results.

Complications: Minimal discomfort.

Recovery: Any redness, swelling or puffiness should be gone within a few hours to a few days.

Cost: $400 to $600 per treatment.
