Skin Resurfacing

Skin resurfacing and rejuvenation treatments can be performed either in ablative modes or non-ablatively, depending on the particular aesthetic outcome that the patient and practitioner wish to achieve. In addition, ablative and non-ablative treatments can also be combined into a comprehensive anti-aging treatment.

Past skin rejuvenation procedures treated large areas of skin, whether aged or not. But with Fotona’s revolutionary 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.

TwinLight Fractional Rejuvenation is a simple 3-step procedure optimized to significantly improve skin smoothness and give it a fresher, healthier look. It is a gentler alternative for treating fine lines and wrinkles with minimal downtime and clean natural results.

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 healing and conditioning the skin for 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 imperfections.
