As we age, our skin begins to lose elasticity and we begin to see the signs of aging in the quality of our skin. The decline in our bodies’ production of collagen influences the way our skin appears over the years. Aging causes dermal structures to become weaker, and lines begin to form on the surface of the skin. Another cause of aging in the body can be from pregnancy for women who experience extreme stretching and often are left with creppy, saggy-looking skin on their stomach. The good news is that loose skin can be tightened and remodelled with the use of Fotona’s advanced laser technology.
Fotona Laser Firming
Fotona's innovative laser machine is capable of treating an array of non invasive laser treatments for the head, body, and even feet. The treatments range from non-invasive wrinkle reduction in the face and neck to HotSculpting, a treatment that reduces fat and tightens the treated area in 2 steps: fat reduction and skin remodelling. The second step in HotSculpting is non-invasive skin tightening.
How does Fotona's non-invasive laser skin tightening treatments work
Fotona laser treatment for laser tightening use a Nd:YAG under Piano Mode to slowly generate heat into the subcutaneous layers of the skin. The thermal effects of the laser to the dermis produce increased elasticity in the skin while immediately displaying signs of improvement even after just one session. Piano Mode increases activity in the cellular structures of the skin by promoting the stimulation of collagen. Increased collagen provides added support to the form and condition of the skin. The support provided by collagen generation can be seen visibly as lines and wrinkles are reduced and skin is tightened.
What are treatments like?
Piano Mode laser skin-tightening treatments are non-invasive and require no downtime. Patients may experience the heating of the treatment area with minimal discomfort. The thermal heating of the tissue cells induces thermally activated modification in the dermis. Fotona Laser skin tightening treatments require no post-op care, and patients can resume normal activities immediately after their procedure.
