Not that long ago, there weren’t many anti-aging treatment options that were non-surgical. Most women knew that a facelift was an option to look younger, but that was about it. Nowadays, advancements in technology has allowed for an explosion in available non-surgical treatment options. One well-known treatment in the aesthetic medicine word is the laser resurfacing peel with Fotona.

What is a Laser Resurfacing Peel?
A laser resurfacing peel, also known as a fractionated peel, is a treatment that can improve the texture and quality of the skin. This is accomplished by increasing collagen and fibrinogen in the skin, which gives it a more youthful appearance. A fractionated peel can be used to reduce the appearance of scars, including acne scars.
With Fotona’s system, the device is able to precisely target the unwanted blemishes on the skin. Older devices had very large spot treatments, meaning skin that didn’t need to be treated would still be affected by the laser. Fotona gives providers a way to treat only what the patient wants addressed, and the rest of the skin is left untouched. The heat from the laser is what activates healing and rejuvenation within the skin.
Benefits of Fotona’s Skin Resurfacing
Technology has experienced many advancements, which means that new laser resurfacing peel devices (like Fotona’s) offer much better benefits than older devices. These benefits include:
- Effective on sun damaged skin
- Treats fine lines and wrinkles
- Reduces the appearance of scars
- Improves skin texture and tone
- Can treat large or small areas
- Fast and efficient
- Gentle on the skin
Good candidates for this treatment include virtually anyone who is not experiencing an active acne breakout. We also do not recommend this treatment for severe signs of aging. This treatment may cause hyperpigmentation in individuals with darker skin, so it is a good idea to consult with our professionals before undergoing a laser resurfacing peel.
Here at RNA Medical Aesthetics, we strive to help our patients reach their goals as quickly and efficiently as possible. If you are a good candidate for a laser resurfacing peel then we can set up a personalized treatment plan so you know exactly what to expect.
