Skin resurfacing and rejuvenation treatments can be performed either in ablative modes with an Er:YAG laser or non-ablatively with a Nd:YAG laser, 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, such as Fotona’s TwinLight™ Fractional Rejuvenation system.
Past skin rejuvenation procedures treated large areas of skin, whether aged or not.
But with Fotona’s 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.
How is it done?
Laser skin resurfacing uses beams of light to remove unwanted and damaged skin for a healthier and younger look. As this process removes the outer layer of your skin, your new skin will be smoother and finer once it heals.
Deeper wrinkles and scars might require multiple passes of the laser for effective treatment, but fine lines and other minimal skin irregularities should only need a single pass.
