How Effective is Trinity Laser Treatment?

I'm 31 and want to get my face looking fresh. I have tried everything from face scrub to Microdermabrasion (the most 3 sessions). Still not too much of an improvement. Is Trinity laser for me?

Trinity Microcurrent Device

Are you referring to the Trinity device for at-home use, made by NuFace?

It's important to note that this device is not a laser.  It uses low level electrical current for "facial toning," and has an optional LED light attachment that is being marketed for "wrinkle reduction."  This is not a laser, or even a medical-grade device, comparable to what would be found in your local cosmetic dermatologist or plastic surgeon's office.  

While there is some evidence to suggest that higher-energy, in-office LED light treatments may provide slight improvement in skin texture in some patients, I'm very skeptical of the results promised by the office-based LED treatments, and do not offer them in my practice.  I'm even more skeptical that a very low-energy device designed for home use will even replicate the modest results seen with the office-based LED devices.  The evidence behind microcurrent technology for skin rejuvenation is even weaker.

My recommendation would be to schedule a consultation with your local cosmetic dermatologist.  Depending on your specific concerns, your cosmetic dermatologist should be able to tailor a skin care plan specifically for you including topical treatments and office procedures to keep your skin looking fresh!

You will get more from trinity if you have a lot of color/brown and red issues with your face, and your base is not too ethnic. Thank you for your question and good luck.

Laser treatment for facial rejuvenation

All skin resurfacing Lasers basically vaporize the top layer of skin and depend on the body to repair the damage.

Your own fat tissues have stem cells that actually can create new tissue and make the skin be more youthful.

There are many techniques to "refresh" the top layers of the face

+1

There are many different techniques and even topical ointments (retiin-A) to "refresh and restore" the top layers of the skin. Deeper problems like acne scarring may take more invasive lasers, such as the fractional C02 lasers. Ask to see pictures of typical results before you choose your treatment to be sure you are addressing the right concern.
