Simply put, everyone wants tight, firm and smooth skin! As time passes, many intrinsic and extrinsic factors contribute to the breakdown of the skin’s health and overall condition, leading to laxity, wrinkles and sagging. We have found that the Fotona SP Dynamis laser can provide significant improvement in the skin, using Piano (TM) mode and Frac3 technologies combined.
Piano mode is an advanced method of delivering laser energy. Piano works from the outside in. It provides an outstanding tightening effect on areas experiencing skin laxity. It heats the skin safely and rapidly, building the heat gradually to stimulate collagen synthesis and cause an overall synergistic tightening effect. It is suitable for all skin types, even very dark skin.
Piano causes bulk tissue heating by concentrating the energy delivery subcutaneously, bypassing the outer layers of the skin and delivering bulk heating to the dermis while eliminating thermal damage to the epidermis. Since Piano mode does not cause high initial temperature peaks in the epidermis it is the safest mode for reaching deeper lying skin tissues. It is also indicated for promotion of wound healing and scar prevention.
While this treatment is extremely effective, it is very pleasant, with a warm and comfortable feeling. It is not necessary to undergo aggressive and uncomfortable treatments to gain results!
The second step of the skin tightening process using the Fotona system is to apply Frac3 settings to the area being treated. This is a unique treatment that improves wrinkles, texture and tone while tightening the skin.
Frac3 is a unique breakthrough treatment because it creates an effective 3D fractional effect that selectively treats skin damage. As the laser beam proceeds towards the subcutaneous layer of the skin, through the epidermis and dermis, it targets the damaged tissues, thereby treating only where required. You will feel a snapping sensation during this phase of the tightening treatment which is very tolerable.
A series of six treatments, two weeks apart may provide excellent results for your skin. Additional home care and the application of medical grade skin care products prescribed by your experienced and knowledgeable technician will enhance the treatments. As well, it is important to note that well-hydrated skin performs more effectively, accepting products and treatments to a greater degree. It may be indicated to improve the hydration levels in the skin prior to starting treatments by improving water intake, receiving hydrating facial treatments and starting the application of products beforehand.
