The Fractional Laser is a very precise tool and can be used for small zones of skin with the surrounding areas remaining untouched. The laser pulse creates tiny holes – through the top two layers of skin – and then triggers your body’s natural healing processes so that new, healthy skin tissue grows from the edges of the microscopic hole. The result of this treatment is fresh, healthy, smooth skin tissue instead of unsightly imperfections.
This cutting edge technology can be used to treat:
- Fine lines
- Skin tone issues
- Brown spots
- Pore appearance
- Acne scars
- Surgical and traumatic scars
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 with Fotona involves Er:YAG laser with customisable settings that offer adjustable treatment options to suit the patient’s skin type and concerns. Er:YAG fractionated laser is emitted to the epidermal layers of the skin in an “island-like” setting where laser injury is caused in equal proportions across the surface of the skin, while the surrounding tissue cells remain intact. The ablated treatment areas engage the body’s wound-healing response to stimulate fibroblasts to activate the production of new collagen.
