Fotona Fractional & Ablative ErYag Laser Resurfacing
For smoother, tighter, healthy-looking skin
Unfortunately we can’t stop the march of time and stay young forever. As we age, our skin cells begin to lose moisture and less collagen is produced in the dermis, which is responsible for the skin’s ﬁrmness. Elastin ﬁbers begin to wear out, while our skin also thins as it loses fat in the subcutaneous layer. These changes combined, cause our skin to sag and wrinkle.
Main factors responsible for the aging of our skin are exposure to the ultraviolet rays of the sun, poor diet, lack of exercise and smoking. The ﬁrst signs of the aging process begin to appear in our late 20s and accelerate with subsequent decades.
Until recently the overwhelming majority of anti-ageing treatments involved the use of lotions and moisturizers or extensive cosmetic surgery to improve the appearance of ﬁne lines and wrinkles. Recent developments in laser technology are now offering a long-lasting scientiﬁcally proven method of restoring the natural beauty of your skin.
Laser peels can remove nearly all ﬁne wrinkles while signiﬁcantly improving deeper, more dynamic wrinkles. This is achieved by the laser beam that gently vaporizes micron-thin layers of the epidermis; the more superﬁcial layer of the skin. The laser can also thermally affect deeper skin layers to stimulate the production of new collagen in the dermis. The overall result is that your skin will not only look smoother and younger, it will feel tighter and more supple as well.*

Unlike traditional treatments, such as dermabrasion and chemical peels, the unique characteristics of lasers means that physicians can precisely control the depth and the extent to which the treatment will work. This means that they can cater the treatment exactly to suite your expectations and the recovery time your can afford.
Depending on the extent of the laser peel, most patients that have undergone the treatment will compare it to having an elastic band snapped across the skin during the treatment and the sensation of having sunburn afterwards. Most people can return to normal daily activities and routines immediately so there’s no need to worry about rescheduling social agendas.
Laser peels will also remove age spots and various aging-related skin lesions, as well as affect the tone of your skin, giving you a credible and natural, rejuvenated look. But of course no therapy can prevent aging and wrinkles re-appearing with time so a maintenance schedule, managed by the physician will keep skin looking young.
