Fractional Laser Resurfacing
If you’re worried that your looks are suffering due to pigmentation, scarring, melasma (dark patches), sun damage, skin aging, enlarged pores or wrinkles and you’re looking for an improvement in your skin’s texture, quality and tone, fractional laser resurfacing could be exactly the treatment you’re looking for.
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 allow more accurate and precise control over the treatment process.
Skin resurfacing and rejuvenation treatments can be performed either in ablative mode with our Fotona Er:YAG laser or non-ablatively with a Fotona Nd:YAG laser, depending on the particular aesthetic outcome you wish to achieve. In addition to this, ablative and non-ablative treatments can also be combined to create a comprehensive anti-aging treatment, such as TwinLight™ Fractional Rejuvenation.
What is TwinLight® Fractional Rejuvenation?
In the past skin rejuvenation procedures treated large areas of skin, whether aged or not. But with Fotona’s revolutionary TwinLight® Fractional Rejuvenation method, the laser 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 up the rejuvenation process.
A Simple and Effective 3-Step Solution
TwinLight® 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 Fotona’s 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 FRAC-3® 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 imperfections.
At Perth Skin & Laser, we have the ability to change the pulse width, spot size and depth of the fractionated treatment which allows us to tailor your procedure especially for you. Fotona lasers are state-of -the-art and can also safely and effectively treat darker skins - this lessens the risk of post-treatment pigmentation problems which non-fractional lasers can cause
When will I see an improvement?
You will see an overall improvement straight after your fractional laser treatment, with your skin continuing to improve over the next 3 to 4 months. To get the very best results, you will usually need to schedule multiple treatments.
Treatments can extend from light touch-ups to deep collagen remodeling, ideal for patients who want drastic rejuvenation effects, but who are not inclined towards aggressive surgical or chemical alternatives. This treatment is suitable no matter what your skin type or tone and you’ll experience minimal downtime yet maximum results.
