This is a non-ablative laser skin treatment. It involves three steps that target pigmentation, and active acne.
3D Skin Rejuvenation – Piano, Frac3 and Versa
Step 1 - Piano Mode
Piano mode is unique and involves a very slow, gentle delivery. Because the heat is delivered slowly, the surface of the skin is not over-heated and therefore patients can have this done without any visible skin surface recovery time. This heats the deeper layers of the skin and leaves the top layer undamaged. This is the safest technique for reaching deeper lying skin tissues. Research has shown that if the dermis of the skin is warmed to 42.5OC – 43OC this causes immediate tightening of the collagen. A very accurate external temperature camera is used to monitor the skin’s temperature throughout the entire procedure to ensure an adequate temperature is reached to stimulate collagen production. In addition, it also produces signals called “heat shock proteins” which then stimulate more collagen production over the next few weeks.
The prolonged gentle heat stimulates collagen production which results in tightening of the skin, reduction of pores and softening of wrinkles. Some patients see immediate tightening and this tightening effect improves over several weeks. There is no recovery time and it can be done with a tan.
Step 2 - Frac3 Laser Therapy
When seeking laser therapy treatments, it is very important for patients to disclose past laser treatment sessions, because over delivery of laser light may cause the skin to burn more easily. Clear communication during consultations is the best way to achieve your skin rejuvenation goals. If you are interested in the latest fractional laser therapy to rejuvenate the skin on your face and body, contact our office to schedule your complimentary consultation with one of our skin specialist. You can discuss whether FRAC3 skin remodelling treatments are a good option for your skin concerns.
Improve atrophic scars – Improve texture of skin – Reduce static wrinkles – Eliminate fine lines – Improve PIH (post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation) – Improve pigmentation (dark spots) in the skin – Improve dark spots on dark skin tones, which has been a difficulty for most ablative fractional lasers in the past – Stimulate collagenesis – Reduce skin laxity
Step 3 - Versa Mode
The versa mode effectively targets vascular and benign lesions, warts, active acne.
What to Expect?
During the treatment the laser is gently passed over the surface of the skin and feels like a gentle warming. The skin looks slightly pink for at most 15 minutes afterwards. This is a non-ablative procedure, which does not require any numbing cream.
