Fotona Nd:YAG Wrinkle Reduction With Fotona XP Max
The main factors in causing skin-aging are diminishing function of fibroblasts in
connective tissue and decreasing tightness and thickness of collagen fibers in the
dermal papillary layer. The most common skin rejuvenation techniques are
therefore based on stimulating a responsive restorative process in the papillary
Chemical peels and dermabrasion have been popular skin rejuvenation options but
their relatively low efficacy and high risk of papillary damage and scarring, are major
drawbacks. The thought of using chemicals, the immediate visible effects of both
treatments together with the inherent longer client-downtime are factors that do not
appeal to the consumer.
The non-invasive Nd:YAG photo-collagen remodelling technique is therefore more
appealing to clients since their active lifestyles demand no down-time. Fotona
Nd:YAG photo-collagen remodelling is based on the absorption of Nd:YAG laser
energy by haemoglobin with partial coagulation of the microvasculature in the
papillary dermis and release of inflammatory mediators. The process results in
microvascular renewing, fibroblast stimulation and new collagen remodelling. The
visible end result will be smoother skin, smaller pore sizes and improved skin colour
and texture.
