AFT 570-950nm Photo rejuvenation of the skin

The AFT 570-950nm IPLS hand piece is an extremely effective choice for skin Rejuvenation including pigmentation reduction. The basic principle of skin rejuvenation is the selective photo-thermolysis, i.e. selective heating of the target to various temperatures depending on the type of lesion – without damage to surrounding tissue.

The AFT 579-950nm IPLS Hand piece can be used effectively for multiple treatments including:

  • Pigmentation reduction
  • Dyschromia improvement (Evenly coloured skin)
  • Thread vein removal
  • Shrinkage of pore size
  • Tightening of tissue through collagen fibre shrinkage
  • Sun and age spots (Lentigo)
  • Red blotchiness
  • Fine lines

The number of treatments required varies depending on the condition. Aged or sun-damaged skin requires 2-5 subsequent treatments depending on the type of lesion. Treatment schedule is typically an initial treatment followed by 2-4 treatment sessions each a minimum of three weeks apart.

Sun blocks are also recommended to reduce and prevent pigmentation from occurring.
