Skin Resurfacing & LIfting Treatment
As the name implies, Fractional Laser Resurfacing involves treating a fraction or portion of the skin surface, leaving the remaining skin area untouched. This treatment has a beneficial impact upon the general texture of the skin even as it tackles skin anomalies such as scars, wrinkles, enlarged pores, acne scars, uneven pigmentation, and sun spots. The procedure is convenient for people short of time as it typically takes less than an hour to complete. The results, however take longer to manifest and can be noticed over the next few weeks. Even better, the skin condition continues to improve over periods as long as six months in some cases.
How Does Laser Resurfacing Work?
There are primarily two types of laser resurfacing treatments that are offered in the market: CO2 and erbium. Depending upon your skin condition, the nature of improvements required, and the downtime you can afford, one of these two procedures is recommended.
The Er:YAG operates on a 2940nm wavelength, and having optimal water absorption, the Erbium (Er) YAG Laser provides ablative skin resurfacing for scar removal. After undergoing the procedure, you’ll observe a significant improvement in your skin texture, tone, and elasticity. About 8 to 10 weeks after the treatment, you’ll see the best results.
The Fractional Handpieces are designed to allow safe, precisely controlled and optimal delivery of laser pulses to the treatment area where the technology produces an array of microscopic wounds on the skin surface that are rapidlyreepithelialized by the undamaged surrounding tissue, sparing the epidermis in the untreated areas.
Fotona offers a laser acne treatment protocol that provides a truly comprehensive solution to the problem of acne. Fotona’s precisely controlled Nd:YAG laser light safely penetrates into skin to effectively target overactive sebaceous glands and to reduce the risk of developing new acne inflammation.
For improving the appearance of acne scars, Fotona offers a complementary laser treatment based on a precise and gentle skin resurfacing procedure in which an Er:YAG laser beam is absorbed by the top micro-layers of the skin to vaporize scarred tissue and stimulate the production of new collagen in the dermis.
Fast results, Without Side-Effects
For active acne, Fotona’s laser treatment reduces acne inflammation through photoselective absorption and controlled heating effects. Fotona’s high powered Nd:YAG laser safely penetrates the skin to an optimal treatment depth to thermally and selectively destroy overactive sebaceous glands.
In addition to its thermal penetration effects, the Nd:YAG acne laser treatment also accelerates the healing process and stimulates collagen remodeling, an important step in the long-term treatment of acne.
Gentle & Effective Acne Scar Revision
For treating problematic acne scars, Fotona’s Er:YAG laser wavelength is ideal for gentle ablative scar revision. The Er:YAG laser safely and effectively provides the minimal penetration depth required for light resurfacing of acne-scarred skin, helping to improve skin texture and tone. Unlike chemical peels and dermabrasion, laser skin resurfacing allows the penetration depth to be precisely controlled. The laser gently vaporizes micron-thin layers of the acne-scarred surface to reveal healthy, undamaged skin below.
In other words, with the fractional laser, we are able to ablate away the old, worn out skin and reaplced with new, tighter and healthy skin tissue as new skin forms.
Once the skin is ablated with a light full Er:YAG beam, which finishes the treatment and removes superficial imperfections.
Using fractional light can rejuvenate the skin to produce an effect that offers a degree of control and efficacy that allows for highly precise sculpting of the skin. Treatments can extend from light touch-ups to deep collagen remodeling, ideal for patients who want drastic rejuvenation effects, but are not inclined towards aggressive surgical or chemical alternatives. This treatment is suitable for all skin types and tones, with minimal patient downtime.
