FOTONA VERSA 3 SKIN TIGHTENING
There are several factors that contribute to sagging skin. Apart from aging, other possible causes include sun damage, weight loss, certain foods and habits, and lack of proper maintenance of the skin. Gradually, our skin loses collagen, volume and elasticity.
WHY THE VERSA 3?
With the Fotona VERSA 3, skin tightening and rejuvenation can be achieved. In a clinical study, it is shown to be superior to Thermage® treatments.
The machine delivers a long pulse Nd:YAG laser beam into the skin to create firming and anti-wrinkle effects by stimulating collagen production. This is an actual long-pulse beam and not the cheaper quasi-long pulsed Nd:YAG which does not travel into deeper layers of the skin.
TREATMENT PROCESS AND BENEFITS
VERSA 3 can be used for sagging skin, wrinkles, rough skin texture and pores, and even active acne. Unlike other skin tightening/rejuvenation treatments, it produces remarkable results that is safe for all skin types. According to the clinical study that is done in comparison with the popular Thermage® treatment, 6 blind observers noticed that the improvement of wrinkles and laxity is greater on the laser-treated side. Unlike Thermage®, no contact is required and this eliminates the risk of skin burning.
The long-pulsed mode of 1064nm Nd:YAG wavelength is significantly different from the cheaper Q-switched mode (Q-switch lasers) of the same wavelength. This allows much deeper penetration of the laser beam to induce collagen stimulation in all layers of the skin. Each session takes about 40 minutes and numbing cream is applied prior to the treatment hence making it tolerable. A single session can result in improvement of facial laxity, wrinkles, texture as well as pigmentation.

How many sessions does it take to treat my condition?
Each unique patient/condition requires a different treatment protocol. Results are typically seen from the first session, but because collagen stimulation takes time, it could show only in 1 to 2 months. Repeat sessions are recommended monthly to stack collagen growth and for best results.
Is it painful?
This laser gives off a deep heating sensation with each shot and is tolerable with the use of numbing cream, just as it is done with Thermage. We also use the Zimmer air cooler technology to maximise comfort.
Is there any downtime?
It causes minimal to no downtime depending on the individual and allows for immediate use of make-up. One can resume his/her normal activities after the laser. Some redness akin to applying a light blusher may be visible.
Is the treatment safe for my skin type?
The VERSA3 skin tightening laser uses the 1064nm long pulse, which is proven safe for all skin types.
How should I care for my skin after treatment?
Sunblock is essential after laser. Depending on the skin condition of the individual, different proprietary post-care creams may be recommended for optimal results. This is not compulsory but ensures a tailored treatment for each patient.
