How does the FotoFacial RF™ work to improve the appearance of the skin?
This procedure is a new, innovative, non-surgical treatment that uses gentle pulses of light combined with low radio frequency energy to improve the appearance of skin, specifically wrinkles, redness, sunspots, pigmentation, sun damage, dilated capillaries and rosacea with no down time.
Each pulse of the FOTOFACIAL™ RF device, eLight or eMax, sends two types of energy into your skin, Intense Pulsed Visible Light and RadioFrequency energy, that act synergistically to enhance the skin. Energy is given up to brown spots, blood vessels, and redness to gradually and gently lessen or eliminate these blemishes. The RadioFrequency energy also produces significant amounts of collagen, elastin and ground substances in the dermis, the thick undercarpet of the skin, resulting in a noticeable and significant smoothening of fine to moderate wrinkles and textural irregularities of the skin
By adding the RadioFrequency to the Intense Pulsed light, the FotoFacial RF™ procedure can now boast excellent, no downtime wrinkle improvements together with the significant improvement in redness, rosacea, pinkness, spider veins, pores and texture.
The FOTOFACIAL™ RF procedure is delivered by the eLight™ System from Syneron. The eLight™ System uses proprietary ELOS™ technology. ELOS™ (Electro-Optical Synergy), marries all benefits of intense pulsed light and optical energy for the treatment of vascular and pigmented discolorations with the wrinkle and tightening benefits of radio frequency (RF) energy.
treatments are full face, neck, hands or body treatments using Intense Pulsed Light and RadioFrequency energy combined in the same pulse. These gentle, no-downtime treatments are used to improve the cosmetic appearance of the face, neck or body. The original procedure was codeveloped by a dermatologist and a plastic surgeon, bringing together the best of aesthetic dermatologic skin care and cosmetic plastic surgery into one noninvasive procedure.
