WHAT IS SAPPHIRE 3® THERAPY?
Sapphire 3 Therapy is a combination of Dry and Wet Abrasion coupled with L.E.D. therapy with micro-current.
- Sapphire 3 Abrasion – It is a non-thermal and suction-free process that employs a rotating sapphire head tipped with sapphire granules to ablate outer layers of skin deeply and painlessly. Dry and wet abrasion is performed allowing for varying depths of exfoliation followed by an alternating pressure massage to allow lymphatic drainage and detoxification.
- Red monochromatic light – Aids in the stimulation of cells, increasing RNA and DNA synthesis, stimulation of the fibroblasts in the connective tissue, producing collagen, elasticity and firmness of the skin.
- Blue L.E.D. therapy – Exposure to blue light induces photo excitation of bacterial porphyrins, single oxygen production, and subsequent bacterial destruction.
- Lymphatic drainage – Slow moving, alternating pressure device combines high-frequency and red L.E.D. technology to stimulate interstitial and lymphatic circulation.
HOW LONG DOES THE SAPPHIRE 3 TREATMENT TAKE?

Most physicians are recommending a week/y or bi-weekly program.
IS SAPPHIRE 3 PHOTO ABRASION PAINFUL?
No. Sapphire 3 Photo Abrasion is non-thermal and patients are reporting no discomfort or pain associated with the treatments.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO SEE RESULTS?
Treatments are progressive and you will notice more correction with each treatment. Patients are reporting changes as early as the first treatment.
CAN I COMBINE WITH OTHER SKIN CARE TREATMENTS?
