The collective desire to stay forever young has created an enormous market for anti-aging treatments. Recent developments in laser technology are now delivering a longer lasting and scientifically proven method of restoring the natural beauty of the skin. Unlike traditional treatments such as dermabrasion and chemical peels, the unique characteristics of laser skin resurfacing allows for more accurate and precise control over the treatment process.
Skin resurfacing and rejuvenation treatments can be performed either in ablative modes with an Er: YAG laser or non-ablatively with an Nd: YAG laser, depending on the particular aesthetic outcome that the patient and practitioner wishes to achieve. In addition, ablative and non-ablative treatments can also be combined into a comprehensive anti-aging treatment, such as Fotona’s Twinlight fractional rejuvenation system.
Introducing TwinLight® Fractional Rejuvenation
Past skin rejuvenation procedures treated large areas of skin, whether aged or not. But with the revolutionary Twinlight Fractional rejuvenation method, the laser light precisely targets imperfections in the skin, leaving the surrounding healthy skin untouched. The heat from the laser energy also stimulates the production of new collagen in the dermis, and the surrounding, untreated skin helps to speed the rejuvenation process.
A Simple and Effective 3-Step Solution
Fractional Rejuvenation is a simple 3 step procedure optimized to significantly improve skin smoothness and give it a fresher, healthier look. The deep heating effect of the Nd:YAG laser beam helps rejuvenate and stimulate the skin, while the ER:YAG beam helps the body to form new, tighter skin.
STEP 1 – CONDITIONING: An Nd: YAG beam is passed along the surface twice. The first pass provides a short stimulus to the skin, the second pass penetrates the tissue, causing deep FRAC3 heating and conditioning the skin for an effective fractional treatment therapy
STEP 2 – FRACTIONAL THERAPY: Old, worn-out skin is ablated away by a fractional Er:YAG laser. The precise micro-ablated channels will be replaced with new, tighter and healthy tissue as new skin forms
STEP 3 – PEELING: The skin is ablated with a light full Er:YAG beam, which finishes the treatment and removes superficial skin imperfections
Using fractional light to rejuvenate the skin can produce an effect that is perfectly graded to your expectations, and 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 remodelling, ideal for those 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.
