Fractional Skin Resurfacing

Laser (TwinLight) Skin Rejuvenation

Laser Skin Rejuvenation is a treatment design to fight the signs of ageing skin as well as repair sun induced skin damage. Laser peels remove fine wrinkles while significantly improving deeper, more dynamicwrinkles. This is achieved by the laser beamthat gently vaporizes micron-thin layers of the epidermis; the superficial layer of the skin.The laser can also thermally affect deeper skinlayers to stimulate the production of new collagenin the dermis. The overall result is that your skinwill not only look smoother and younger, it will feeltighter and more supple as well.

Unlike traditional treatments, such as dermabrasionand chemical peels, the unique characteristics oflasers means that physicians can precisely controlthe depth and the extent to which the treatment willwork. This means that they can adjust the treatmentexactly to suite your expectations and the recoverytime you can afford.Depending on the extent of the laser peel, mostpatients that have undergone the treatment willcompare it to having an elastic band snappedacross the skin during the treatment and thesensation of having sunburn afterwards. Mostpeople can return to normal daily activities androutines immediately so there’s no need to worryabout rescheduling social agendas.

Laser peels will also remove age spots and variousaging-related skin lesions, as well as affect thetone of your skin, giving you a credible and natural,rejuvenated look. But of course no therapy canprevent aging, so a maintenance schedule, managed by thephysician will keep skin looking young.

How does TwinLight Laser Fractional Rejuvenation work?

Past skin rejuvenation procedures treatedlarge areas of the skin, whether it wasaged or not. But with TwinLight FractionalRejuvenation, the laser light preciselytargets only areas of the skin whereskin ageing has occurred, leaving thesurrounding healthy skin untouched. Theheat from the laser energy also stimulatesthe production of new collagen in thedermis because the surrounding, untreatedskin speeds the rejuvenation process. Thistreatment is suitable for all skin types andtones, with minimal patient downtime.TwinLight Fractional Rejuvenation isperformed in three simple steps:

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 ablatedwith a light full Er:YAG laser beam, which finishesthe treatment and removes superficialimperfections.Er:YAG and Nd:YAG wavelengths havecomplementary effects on the skin. Thedeep heating of the Nd:YAGlaser beam helpsrejuvenate and stimulate the skin, while theEr:YAG beam helps the body form new,tighter skin.In addition, the ability of Er:YAG laser toresurface the skin with a variable amountof coagulation has long been recognizedas enabling a versatility of treatment styleswhich are impossible to achieve with anyother skin rejuvenation technology.
