How Does Zaffiro Work?

Zaffiro combines infrared energy with water peeling and exfoliation to tighten and rejuvenate your skin. The thermo-lift technology delivers controlled heating to the skin’s deeper layers, stimulating the production of new collagen and improving the health of existing collagen. Collagen is the skin’s primary building block and is what helps it appear youthful. At about the time we turn 30, our bodies stop producing collagen and the skin gradually loses its elasticity and sags. Treatments that tighten skin and minimize stretch marks all focus on creating collagen.

The powerful hydro-exfoliation uses water peeling to deep clean, moisturize and improve skin texture. The treatment resurfaces the skin, improving the complexion and reducing the signs of aging. We customize the procedure for specific conditions and areas by using specific formulas during the treatment.

Who Can Benefit From Zaffiro?

Zaffiro DeviceNonsurgical skin tightening treatments such as Zaffiro are generally best suited for women and men concerned about mild to moderate loose skin. They can get the desired lifting without undergoing cosmetic surgery and may want the procedure for areas besides the face and neck. Zaffiro treatments are an excellent option for people who want to improve the appearance of the upper chest (décolleté) and upper arms or tighten and firm abdominal skin or the buttocks.

Combining Treatments

Many of our patients can benefit from combining Zaffiro procedures with other skin rejuvenation treatments to create comprehensive results. For example, we may recommend laser skin resurfacing as part of a package that can accomplish a patient’s goals in a cost-effective way.

What to Expect

Zaffiro is a non-invasive treatment that’s performed at our office and is brief enough to be completed during your lunchtime. The water peeling treatment takes about 10 minutes, while the thermo-lift procedure usually lasts up to 30 minutes. Treatment times vary depending on the area or areas being targeted.

We can adjust the pressure of the water peeling treatment and customize the intensity and duration of the thermo-lift procedure, so it’s tailored to each patient’s needs and comfort. We recommend completing a series of treatments to get the best results. The Zaffiro water peeling treatment can be performed for 10 minutes each week for 8 weeks. The thermo-lift treatment can be performed every 30 days for 4 to 6 treatments.

After the initial rejuvenation, results can be maintained with an ongoing treatment regimen with repeat treatments every 3 months, 6 months, or annually depending on desired results. At Dermatology Associates of Rochester, we have one goal—your results. Request your consultation online or call us at (585) 272-0700 to get started.
