Fotona’s TwinLight™ Fractional Rejuvenation system is the gold standard in terms of skin rejuvenation and comprises three treatments in one.
Past skin rejuvenation procedures treated large areas of skin, whether aged or not, however with Fotona’s revolutionary TwinLight™ Fractional Rejuvenation method, the laser precisely targets imperfections in the skin, leaving the surrounding healthy skin untouched. The heat from the laser energy also stimulates the production of new collagen in the dermis, and the surrounding untreated skin helps to speed up the rejuvenation process.
Simple and effective 3-step solution
TwinLight® Fractional Rejuvenation is a simple 3-step procedure optimized to significantly improve skin smoothness and give it a fresher, healthier look. The deep heating effect of Fotona’s Nd:YAG laser beam helps rejuvenate and stimulate the skin, while the Er:YAG beam helps the body to form new, tighter skin.
Step 1 - Conditioning: An Nd:YAG beam is passed along the surface twice. The first pass provides a short stimulus to the skin, the second pass penetrates the tissue, causing deep FRAC3® heating and conditioning the skin for an effective fractional treatment therapy.
Step 2 - Fractional therapy: Old, worn-out skin is ablated away by a fractional Er:YAG laser. The precise micro-ablated channels will be replaced with new, tighter and healthy tissue as new skin forms.
Step 3 - Peeling: The skin is ablated with a light full Er:YAG beam, which finishes the treatment and removes superficial imperfections.
Using fractional light to rejuvenate the skin can produce an effect that is perfectly graded to individual expectations, and offers a degree of control and efficacy that allows for highly precise sculpting of the skin. Treatments can extend from light touch-ups to deep collagen remodeling, ideal for those who want drastic rejuvenation effects, but are not inclined towards aggressive surgical or chemical alternatives. This treatment is suitable for all skin types and tones, with minimal downtime.
Prior to Treatment
Every person wishing to be treated at Advanced Laser Clinic will require a consultation with our Laser Consultant prior to their first treatment.
At this appointment, we welcome all questions to advance your understanding of the treatment. There will be a consultation form to be completed about your health and medications to asses your eligibility for treatment.
A patch test will be performed on your skin to ensure the laser settings are suitable for you. If there are no reactions 24 hours after your patch test, we can commence your laser treatment.
Before laser therapy, it is very important that you keep your treated area away from sun exposure. Your skin needs to be protected from the sun for a minimum of two weeks before any treatment commences. This is crucial both before and after the treatment. The lasers work on providing a specific heat at a specific depth in your tissue to produce a desired end point. This end point can be exacerbated if exposed to sun and can cause unwanted side effects.
Before & After
Frequently asked questions
Am I a suitable candidate?
The complementary effects of erbium and Nd:YAG lasers on the skin make TwinLight™ an excellent treatment option for many clients. Anyone wishing to restore a radiant glow to the skin will benefit from a TwinLight™ treatment. It assists in firming, tightening, fine lines and clearing the complexion. It is ideal for sun damaged and ageing skin types. Some may wish to have a course of TwinLight™ procedures, or they could combine a TwinLight™ treatment with other services like fractional laser, skin needling and injectables.
Is it painful? Is there any downtime?
TwinLight™ is a comfortable treatment to have done with minimal downtime. The effects of erbium YAG laser will mean you are flushed when you leave the clinic. This redness may last 1-3 days depending on your skin and the treatment on the day. You will experience some dryness in the days following your procedure. We recommend you keep the skin well hydrated and wear sunscreen every day after treatment. TwinLight™ is minimally invasive, making it a great treatment option for people who wish to return to regular activities immediately.
When will I notice a change?
After about a week, the remodeling process will begin in the deeper layers of the skin and you will start to see an improvement in the texture and tone of the skin. For ageing concerns, it may take from 6 weeks up to 6 months to see the full impact of the laser TwinLight™ treatment.
Is Fotona Laser safe?
Fotona laser treatment is a non-surgical and non-invasive procedure that uses multi-laser technology. Having been clinically proven to be safe for all skin types, Fotona laser treatments have a minimal to no downtime and produce satisfactory results.
