By the age of twenty our collagen depletes at a rate of about 2% a year. This is a natural chronological response as our skin cells begin to slow down in movement and reproduction. Our bodies also stop producing collagen on an ongoing basis. This decreased activity contributes to the gradual appearance of fine lines and deep wrinkles. Our skin begins to lose its ability to “snap” back. At this time, the cells are more prone to accumulate damaged pigmented cells, eventually showing years of over-exposure to the sun and its UV rays along with environmental stress.
Fotona SP Dynamis Frac 3 laser treatments are a skin rejuvenation procedure that uses ND YAG laser pulses on the targeted area. What makes Frac 3 unique is its ability to use the shortest pulse duration available. This, in effect, targets skin imperfections throughout the layers of the epidermis, breaking them up as the proteins absorb the laser’s energy. With the ND YAG’s pulse depth, the laser generates heat at the dermal level, stimulating a controlled injury response which triggers a collagen production response. This lifts the skin and reduces fine lines and wrinkles.
