FFT (Fraxel) – Fractional photothermolysis
FFT helps to solve different esthetic and cosmetic skin problems which have earlier seemed to be complicated enough to be successfully dealt with. For example, tightening the skin on one’s face, neck and hands, treatment of scars and skin hyperpigmentation. The unique character of the FFT method consists in the synthesis of collagen and elastin in the deepest skin layers. Laser beam induces an array (fractions) of microscopic thermal wounds (punctures) in the skin, in the result of which cone-shaped treatment zones are created. The width and depth of treatment zones are measured in microns. Surface layers of epidermis suffer minimal damage, the whole process of coagulation takes place in deeper skin layers. In the course of one procedure, 15-25% of skin is treated with FFT, while those skin cells which remain untouched by FFT start reproducing actively and restoring (treating) the damaged area. In the result, new skin tissue resurfaces. New synthesized collagen and elastin tighten the skin. After the procedure, a basal layer of epidermis completely restores within 24 hours. Damaged epidermis cells flake off the skin within 2 weeks.
Unlike traditional IPL and FPL photorejuvenation with the help of a pulsed light, FFT is always selective and controllable, which makes it a successful and safe method that can be applied on delicate areas, for example, around one’s eyes. FFT is suitable for all skin types. There are no limitations based on the colour of one’s skin, its thickness, or sensibility. Protective capabilities of the skin are preserved. There is no need for long-term application of protecting and restoring masks.
FT for skin rejuvenation:
FFT as a treatment against pigment spots and hyperpigmentation:
FFT is an effective method for treating pigment spots, caused by a frequent exposure to the sun, as well as the treatment for melasma (excess production of the skin pigment which may result from hormonal changes taking place in female organism). In the result of FFT, skin rejuvenates, while hyperpigmentation in the deep dermal layers disintegrates and simply grows out.
FFT as a treatment against striae (stretch marks after pregnancy):
FFT is used for remodeling skin in the areas with stretch marks. In the result, the stretch marks and the skin tone even out, making striae almost invisible. In order for the treatment to be effective, striae must be at least one year old (light in colour, not purple or reddish).
FFT as a treatment against scar tissues:
FFT is used for the fractional treatment of the rough scar tissue. Scars may be removed in any area of the body. FFT is not suitable for the treatment of keloidal scars.
Post-acne skin, or acne scars – crater-like scars get smoothed out by means of stimulation of healthy skin growth in the scarred area. The prerequisite for acne treatment is that acne has been cured and there are no areas of inflammation.
