Laser skin-rejuvenation treatments are gaining momentous popularity in the cosmetic field. The ability to remodel the skin with lasers entices practitioners, their patients, and the research development companies like Fotona who manufacture the laser systems. The thrilling new world of laser technology opens avenues that have not been ventured onto before with non-surgical procedures.
One of the innovative ways that the skin is improved with lasers is by using Fotona’s Nd:YAG laser under FRAC3 Mode. FRAC3 is a non-ablative treatment that gently removes imperfections on the surface of the skin.
FRAC3 is different than traditional methods of fractionated laser skin resurfacing because of its 3D auto-fractionated laser properties. When the laser light is emitted onto the epidermis, it fractionates upon contact with imperfections by selectively heating areas that contain skin damage. Moreover, traditional fractionated lasers are conventionally delivered via fractionated beam, whereas FRAC3 Mode has demonstrated selective, precise delivery of laser energy only to areas that require modification. FRAC3 is a non-ablative laser that rejuvenates the skin in a three-dimensional method.
Fotona laser beams are delivered to the surface of the skin, penetrating the deeper layers of the skin. FRAC3 non-ablative fractional laser treatments produce self-induced fractional thermal damage that is activated within the volume of the skin tissue. FRAC3 selectively modifies skin tissue that is presented with skin damage, without harming the surface of the skin. This can be achieved with short/long pulses that penetrate deep into the skin to minimize the effects of heat diffusion from the lasers while maintaining the thermal energy to disperse into the targeted areas.
FRAC3 laser skin rejuvenation treatments can effectively reduce and/or remove imperfections on the skin over the course of several treatments. Some of the improvements that can be achieved with FRAC3 are:
Tissue damage often causes these types of scars, leading to depressed or surface scarring of the skin. Atrophic scars the cause of tissue loss, often paired with hyperpigmentation as well.
Hypertrophic scars are the result of excessive tissue that develops over wounds or infections on the skin. These scars are generally elevated from the surface of the skin, similar to keloid scarring.
Aging is the dominant cause of wrinkling in the skin. FRAC3 skin-rejuvenation treatments can reduce the severity of wrinkles by increasing the production of collagen within the reticular dermis. FRAC3 treatments densify the epidermis and the stratum corneum, contributing to the improved organization of the skin’s dermal layers to support and reduce the signs of aging in the skin.
Photorejuvenation can be achieved with FRAC3 treatments on post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH) presented in the skin. PIH characteristics are often caused by acne scarring and irregular skin texture.
FRAC3 treatments are safe and effective on all skin types. During your treatment, the technician will pass over the entire treatment area. Most patients require at least 3 sessions spaced at 2-week intervals. FRAC3 laser skin-rejuvenation treatments require no downtime, no anesthesia, and no cooling during or after treatments. FRAC3 laser skin rejuvenation can effectively treat all areas of the body on all skin tones, including that of darker-skinned patients without harming the skin or inducing new PIH in patients. FRAC3 treatments provide an efficient, non-invasive solution for those who want to achieve skin rejuvenation on larger areas with the fastest healing time.
