Fractional Resurfacing

Fractional photothermolysis is a method that, by combining the laser energy with a fractional scanner - Lightscan™, creates tiny channels M.T.Z. - Micro Thermal Zones at various depths in the skin, spaced around areas of healthy skin not affected by the laser beam.


Why choose the non-ablative method?

The effects of a non-ablative resurfacing laser on collagen are not immediate, but require the necessary time for new collagen to form (about 3 weeks). Therefore if a fractional technique is used, more sessions will be required to get a visible result.
Nevertheless, fractional lasers and non-ablative technology have evolved and have spread considerably because the side effects are minimal, pain is greatly reduced and there is no interruption in daily activities between one session and the next. The diameter of the M.T.Z. spot is sized only 200 microns and the tissue repair process, coming from adjacent intact areas, is very fast and uses a maximum pixel density of 30%.
In addition to wrinkles, it can also be used with excellent results on acne-induced scarring, pigmented lesions from sun exposure, senile lesions, melasma, scars, stretch marks and the shrinking of pores.

    The Eufoton® instruments indicated for this type of treatment are:
    • LASEmaR® 500 combined with Lightscan™ - a fractional selective photothermolysis scanner, removes pigmentations and microectasias with significant improvements in the epidermal tissue.
    • LASEmaR® 800 allows both procedures: photobiomodulation and skin remodelling with skin regeneration in the different stages of photochrome ageing.
    • LASEmaR® 1500 combined with Lightscan™ fractional technology is particularly indicated for deep wrinkles, scars, pigmented and senile lesions, acne scars, firming, shrinking of pores.

    Lightscan ™ 

    Computerized fractional scanner. Energy, quantity of points and filling density are variable based on personalized settings.
    • Size and density of the fractional scanning are adjustable by the operator;
    • Linear or random scan mode;
    • Setting of variable impulses / fluence and possibility of repeating the impulse (optional stacking);
    • Variable pulse time with the possibility of repetition;
    • EPC - Effective Pulse Control, maximization of the concept of non-ablative fractional photothermolysis.
    Non-ablative fractional photothermolysis can be associated with other treatments:


    The non-ablative fractional photothermolysis can be combined with Endolift®: a minimally invasive interstitial outpatient laser treatment that provides deep tissue stimulation and connected localized microlipolysis, through the LASEmaR®1500 in combination with a disposable optical microfiber (FTF System).
    It can be performed without anaesthesia and the purpose of the treatment is to create a lattice retraction pattern that facilitates collagen restructuring and the simultaneous reduction of the fat mass.
    The treatment is reserved for the lower middle third of the face (bumps, double chin and jaw line), but also in body areas where there is a laxity and/or micro adiposity problem.
    The results are immediately visible and improve up to six months after the treatment.
    Annual follow-up visits are foreseen.

    The non-ablative laser treatment mediated by Cytoregenerating Carrier Molecoles (CCM) biomodulates and normalizes the mitochondrial cytochrome activity and apoptotic photoactivation, mediated by ROS (reactive oxygen species) and peroxides, and cytoplasmic cleansing by removing the senescent organellae, thereby stimulating ATP production with regenerative metabolic increase of type I and type IV collagen and elastin.
