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. The method of channeled ablation versus full-field ablation of the skin yields highly favourable advantages for the patient and their treatment experience. It requires less downtime and less discomfort while still initiating neocollagenesis: the process of skin remodelling.
Fotona fractional laser skin-resurfacing treatments are safe and effective with rapid healing times that produce substantial improvements to the presented irregularities targeted by the laser-resurfacing treatments.
Laser skin resurfacing can effectively achieve the following improvements:
– Treating sun-damaged, aging skin, possibly with acquired pigmented lesions (e.g. lentigo senilis, a.k.a. sun spots)
– Reduce fine lines and mild wrinkles
– Revise scars and improve the appearance of scars
– Reduce stretch marks
– Enhance drug delivery
– Improve acne scars
– Improve skin laxity
– Improve skin tone
– Improve skin texture
– Improve discoloration
– Reduce pore size
– Reduce appearance of surface irregularities
