What is TwinLight Laser Acne & Acne Scars Tx?
Laser treatment of Active Acne reduces acne inflammation by photo-selective absorption and heating of overactive sebaceous glands. The power of an Nd:YAG laser is used to accelerate the healing process and to reduce the possibility of developing new acne inflammation.
Laser treatment of Acne Scars is based on the precise and gentle skin resurfacing procedure where the Er:YAG laser is absorbed by the top micro-layers of the skin to vaporise scarred skin and stimulate the production of new collagen in the dermis.
Best clinical results are obtained by employing two complementary wavelengths of near infrared lasers (Er:YAG and Nd:YAG – TwinLight Tx).
How does it work?
1. Active acne: A high power Nd:YAG laser is used to penetrate the skin deep enough to thermally and selectively destroy large sebaceous glands.
2. Acne scars: The Er:YAG laser is used to remove micron-thin layers of skin so that new skin can form in its place. Unlike chemical peels and dermabrasion, laser resurfacing allows to be easily controlled. The laser gently vaporises the acne-scarred surface of the skin so that undamaged skin below is revealed.
Why is wavelength important?
Fotona’s precisely controlled Nd:YAG laser wavelength safely penetrates into skin with the optimal depth to effectively target overactive sebaceous glands. In addition to its thermal penetration effects, the Nd:YAG acne laser treatment also stimulates collagen remodelling, an important step in the treatment of acne. For problematic acne scars, Fotona’s Er:YAG laser wavelength is ideal for gentle ablative scar revision. The Er:YAG laser safely and effectively provides the
minimal penetration required for light resurfacing of acne-scarred skin.
Why are Fotona lasers perfect for TwinLight Acne & Acne Scars Tx?
Both the SP Dynamis and the SP Spectro laser systems are equipped with a high performance Er:YAG laser that ablates skin more efficiently with proprietary VSP (Variable Square Pulse) technology, which can be accurately tuned to varying “cold” ablation and non-ablative thermal ratios. Full customisability allows you to precisely attain the clinical outcomes your patients desire.
The Nd:YAG laser on the SP Dynamis & SP Spectro perfectly complements the Er:YAG laser’s ablative action with the ability to penetrate deeply into the skin to create thermal effects without damaging the skin surface. Furthermore, Fotona’s specially designed, innovative hand-piece technology allows safe, precisely controlled and effective delivery of laser pulses to the treatment area.
