Smoother, clearer, and healthier skin: How Fotona TwinLight works its age-erasing magic
As we age, our wisdom, life accomplishments, and many tales of sunny days start to show on our skin in the form of fine lines and wrinkles, pigmentation, skin laxity, and larger pores. While we can’t turn back time and relive our favourite moments, we can rewind the clock on our skin, thanks to the revolutionary Fotona TwinLight 3-step skin resurfacing method. With Spring blooming, now is the time of year when we’re all cleaning our houses, decluttering our wardrobes and drawers, and making room for the new. Why not Spring clean our skin while we’re at it? Read on to find out how the advanced TwinLight device works to refresh your skin.
What causes fine lines, wrinkles, and other skin concerns as we age?
For many of us, skin concerns like wrinkles, skin laxity, and enlarged pores can lower our confidence as we age – despite the wisdom that they represent.
Signs of aging on our skin begin to show as collagen and elastin production, the proteins that help to keep our skin smooth and strong, naturally begins to decline. Some skin concerns can also be linked to sun exposure, as the sun’s UV rays have been shown to weaken collagen fibres and increase melanin production. With a lower supply of collagen and elastin, fine lines and wrinkles, skin laxity, and large pores start to become noticeable, while more melanin, the natural skin pigment that is responsible for our hair, skin, and eye colour, can cause unwanted skin pigmentation like small brown spots or patches.
Other factors like hormonal changes, smoking habits, and skin injuries can cause the appearance of older, saggier, and rougher skin. As well as aging and sun exposure, large pores can also be a result of an overproduction of oil in the skin that can occur during hormonal periods, clogging the skin and making the pores appear larger.
Rewind time for your skin at Skin Confidence
Traditional skin resurfacing methods like chemical peels aim to refresh the skin, but advances in technology have provided us with much more precise and effective laser skin resurfacing treatments that can target specific problem areas in the skin, leaving healthy surrounding skin untouched.
TwinLight’s innovative 3-step procedure
Fotona’s TwinLight Fractional skin resurfacing works by deeply healing and refreshing the skin, combining the powerful Nd:YAG and Er:YAG lasers in one simple treatment to encourage the skin to create new, tighter, and healthier skin, in place of old and tired-looking skin. Designed to encourage collagen production and remove the damaged superficial layers of the skin, the method can be used for light skin touch-ups and deep collagen remodelling – whatever treatment that you need to effectively address your individual skin concerns.
Step one: Conditioning
First, an Nd:YAG beam will provide a short stimulus to the skin, before being passed over the skin a second time to penetrate the skin tissue. This will cause deep FRAC3® heating and condition the skin, preparing the skin for fractional therapy.
Step two: Fractional therapy
Next, a fractional Er:YAG laser will precisely ablate old skin away. This step creates minor damage to the skin, which prompts the skin to begin its natural healing process to repair the skin, stimulating collagen production. The micro-ablated channels will be replaced with younger-looking, tighter, and healthier skin as the skin heals.
Step three: Healing
To finish the skin resurfacing procedure, a full Er:YAG laser will then ablate the top layer of the skin, removing any noticeable skin imperfections.
