This laser treatment is specifically designed to dramatically reduce the appearance of sun damage, red spots and blemishes, rosacea, broken capillaries (including spider veins), acne scarring, and age spots (brown spots).
What is AFT/IPL Laser Treatment?
AFT stands for Advanced Fluorescence Technology, and IPL stands for Intense Pulsed Light. IPL laser treatments have been offered since the mid-1990s, and AFT laser therapy is an advanced, next-generation of IPL laser therapy. It is also known as a photo facial or photo rejuvenation.
Most people are familiar with IPL laser treatments, but technology is changing so quickly, causing innovative new products that achieve better results to be released all the time. AFT effectively uses low energy light to gently heat and reduce skin imperfections in a unique “Equal Distribution” technique, which is different from the traditional IPL treatment.
What can AFT/IPL treat?
AFT laser is excellent for tightening superficial wrinkles such as crow’s-feet and lines around the mouth. It is also effective at minimizing acne scars and spider veins and treating pigmentation concerns and sun damage.
How long does each session last?
An AFT–IPL session is completed in approximately 30 minutes.
Is there any downtime?
AFT is considered non-invasive, so there is no need to take time off of work. Your skin may feel a little tight after treatment, and it may look slightly pink for 2 to 3 days.
How soon will I notice results?
Immediately following AFT laser therapy, you will notice that your skin is smoother and the texture has improved significantly. Because this type of treatment deals with the underlying skin cells and kickstarts collagen reproduction, you will notice continued improvement in the days and weeks following this procedure.
How many treatments will I need?
Although improvements will be evident after one procedure, it is recommended that 2 to 4 laser sessions booked a month apart will provide maximum benefit. This is especially the case if you are targeting acne scar removal or brown aging spots.
