2D Skin Resurfacing
WHY DO WE GET WRINKLES, LINES AND SAGGING ON OUR SKIN?
As we age, our skin undergoes several changes that affect its appearance and function. One of the most noticeable changes is the development of wrinkles, lines and sagging in our face. These are caused by a combination of factors, such as:
– Loss of collagen and elastin: These are proteins that provide strength and elasticity to the skin. As we age, our body produces less of them, leading to thinner, weaker and less flexible skin.
– Decreased fat and bone volume: The fat and bone tissues under the skin provide support and shape to the face. As we age, these tissues diminish, causing the skin to lose its firmness and contour.
– Sun exposure and environmental damage: The ultraviolet rays from the sun and other sources of pollution can damage the skin cells and break down the collagen and elastin fibers. This accelerates the aging process and contributes to the formation of wrinkles, lines and sagging.
– Facial expressions and movements: The repeated contraction of the facial muscles when we smile, frown, squint or make other expressions can create creases in the skin over time. These creases become more permanent as the skin loses its elasticity and ability to bounce back.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The Fotona 4D Timewalker system is a state-of-the-art laser device that can perform a variety of skin treatments, including 2D skin resurfacing. 2D skin resurfacing is a procedure that aims to improve the texture, tone and appearance of the skin by removing the damaged outer layers and stimulating the production of new collagen and elastin. The Fotona 4D Timewalker system uses two wavelengths of laser energy, Nd:YAG and Er:YAG, to deliver precise and controlled pulses of heat to the skin. The Nd:YAG laser penetrates deeper into the skin and targets the dermis, where it heats up the collagen fibers and causes them to contract and tighten. The Er:YAG laser ablates the superficial layers of the skin and removes the dead cells, dirt and debris. The combination of these two lasers results in a smoother, firmer and more youthful-looking skin with minimal downtime and side effects.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT DURING THE TREATMENT?
You may feel some warmth and tingling sensations during the procedure, but it is generally well tolerated.
AFTER THE TREATMENT
You can resume your normal activities immediately after the session, but you should avoid direct sun exposure, excessive heat, and strenuous exercise for a few days. You may experience some mild redness, swelling, or tingling sensation in the treated area, but these are temporary and will subside within a few hours or days.
HOW MANY SESSIONS
The number of treatments required for optimum results varies depending on the individual’s skin condition, age, and expectations. However, most patients see noticeable improvement after one session, and significant results after three to six sessions. The sessions are spaced four to six weeks apart to allow the skin to heal and regenerate.
