February is the month of love and it’s no surprise that we’re featuring a treatment to make sure your lips are looking their best as our treatment of the month! Gone are the days of over-filled unnatural looking lips! Fotona Microlaser Peel with Deep Fractionated laser treatment on your lips will promote collagen and smooth skin around the lips, leaving them looking naturally plump and hydrated.
The Fotona laser uses light energy on the upper layers of your skin while delivering beneficial thermal energy to the subcutaneous layers of tissue to stimulate collagen production. Fotona is a non-invasive, non-ablative therapy that provides immediate results that continue to improve over time.
How it Works
The Fotona system contains two aesthetic lasers, the Nd:YAG and Er:YAG, to resurface and rejuvenate the skin, treat veins, eliminate vascular and pigmented lesions, and unwanted hair in all skin types, among many other treatments. The Nd:YAG laser uses thermal energy to transform light into photo-acoustic waves to break down deep-lying structures to smooth and resurface the skin. The ER:YAG laser targets the uppermost layer of skin and allows for precise, layer-by-layer removal of the epidermis. The energy of the laser is absorbed by the water content in the skin cells and the tissue can be vaporized. Skin then shrinks to stimulate the production of new collagen in the dermis and the new skin becomes smoother and tighter.
After completing your scheduled Fotona treatments, your lips will look naturally fuller and more hydrated. Your skin will continue to create new collagen fibres, providing you with the elasticity and glow that we associate with young, healthy skin. You should schedule annual maintenance treatments to continue to enjoy the benefits of your improved look and boosted collagen levels.
