It is the fastest and most secure laser system worldwide.
Laser resurfacing is an extremely effective method of removing the top layer of the skin. It is considered a more precise treatment than mechanical exfoliation or chemical peels.
WHAT OUTOME CAN YOU EXPECT?
- 1 Reduction of enlarged pores
- 2 Shallow small acne scars
- 3 Reduction of fine wrinkles
- 4 Unification of skin tone
- 5 Controlling seborrhoeic dermatitis
- 6 Increased firmness and elasticity of the skin by boosting collagen and elastin synthesis
TREATMENT DESCRIPTION STEP BY STEP
During single pulse laser produces from several dozen to several hundred micro-lesions, which due to the fractionation technique are surrounded by healthy skin. Thanks to this, regeneration goes very fast. During the repair processes a new collagen and elastin are produced- as a result the skin thickens and becomes firmer.
In the traditional solution after the procedure, thousands of micro-fragments of tissues remain in the damaged skin, which cause unnecessary overheating of the tissues, while patients experience pain and discomfort.
The Er:YAG head in the innovative FOTONA laser system immediately removes hot residues of damaged tissues, which reduces pain and significantly shortens the convalescence period.
Depending on the needs, delicate procedures are performed until full ablation. The stronger the treatment – the longer the convalescence period: from 1 to 5 days.
- Exfoliation usually starts 3 days after the procedure
- From 1 to 3 days after surgery, the skin may be (but not necessarily) red
- The first outcomes of the laser peel are visible one week after the procedure
- For the period from 3 to 6 months after the treatment, the regeneration process of collagen and elastyl fibers is underway
SKIN AFTERCARE LASER Nd:YAG, Er:YAG / FOTONA BTL
SKIN AFTERCARE IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE TREATMENT:
- Patients may feel a burning sensation for 1-2 hours after surgery. Usage of cold packs bring significant relief. Cold pack should be wrapped in a sterile, dry gauze (or paper towel) to prevent soaking. For stronger pain use Paracetamol 1-2 tabl.
- For the first few days wash your skin and right after drying disinfect it with Octenisept, and use Ozonosept/Ozonella for the next 2 weeks.
- Do not rub or scratch the treated area.
- Some patients may experience minor bleeding . Use a sterile compression for 2-3 minutes to stop it, and then secure it with patch.
SKIN AFTERCARE LATER AFTER THE TREATMENT:
- After 12 hours patients may apply makeup using mineral foundation, shave or take a shower.
- Starting from 7th day after the surgery it is important to keep the skin moisturized. Apply to the treatment area baby oil several times a day for 3-5 days. This will speed healing and reduce the risk of allergic reactions (like Cetaphil cream or Cicabio).
- For the first month after the procedure apply moisturizer with sunscreen SPF 50+ and always remember to protect from the sun by wearing hat, umbrella etc.
- Avoid cosmetics containing alcohol for at least 2 weeks after surgery.
- In case of appearing skin discoloration treat it with Synchroline Thiospot Intensive Cream.
- Avoid vigorous exercise for the first week after surgery, or until first stage of healing process is completed.
- Eliminate strong coffee, alcohol and any other substances that may lead to dehydration.
- Sun-sensitizing medications (retinoids, tetracyclines),
- Iron supplementation,
- Herbs (stop using 2-3 weeks before surgery),
- Active skin disease (psoriasis, herpes),
- Tanning 4 weeks before treatment,
- Waxing or tweezing 2 weeks before treatment,
- Very dry and very sensitive skin,
- The tendency to develop keloids, hypertrophic scars,
- The use of steroids (oinment or tablets),
- The oral use of retinoids in the last 6 months,
- Taking Accutan in a period of last 6 months,
- Abnormal blood clotting, the use of drugs that reduce blood clotting,
- Hormonal and endocrine diseases like polycystic ovary syndrome or diabetes,
- Viral infections: HIV, hepatitis,
- Active autoimmune diseases (eg. Lupus erythematosus, scleroderma),
- Alcohol (24 hours before the procedure),
- Excessive expectations of the treatment outcome.
