Laser aesthetics with the LightWalker
Did you know that in addition to its advanced dental treatments, the Fotona LightWalker laser can also offer patients facial aesthetic rejuvenation options? Skin rejuvenation treatments are in high demand, and many are looking for options that naturally enhance, without injectables.
Two treatments that fit needs of patients are SmoothLase, a wrinkle reduction treatment for around the mouth, and LipLase, a gentle yet effective treatment in providing patients with fuller, enhanced lips. Enabled with unique Fotona pulse characteristics, both SmoothLase and LipLase use the photothermal capabilities of the LightWalker laser to convert and initiate the formation of new and more elastic collagen.
After years of practicing restorative dentistry, Harvey Shiffman, DDS, says, “I noticed that after delivering beautiful smile makeovers, my patients would look in the mirror and point to wrinkles and say ‘I hate this.’ Fotona’s LightWalker has given me many options for facial rejuvenation, ‘turning back the clock,’ with both intra-oral and extra-oral options to help patients look better, feel better and complete that cosmetic makeover.”
How does SmoothLase work? The characteristics of the proprietary non-ablative “Smooth Mode” pulse delivers intense heat to the tissues that simultaneously shrinks and tightens existing collagen bundles while stimulating the creation of new collagen. A specialized handpiece delivers the unique SMOOTH Mode pulses to the intra oral mucosa. Treating the entirety of the oral cavity results in the tightening of the skin around the mouth and cheeks leading to significant reduction in nasolabial folds.
With LipLase, the laser delivers targeted heat pulses into the lips to stimulate new collaged formation resulting in fuller, more defined, and enhanced lips.
Shiffman adds, “The LightWalker is great for facial rejuvenation which has become a very popular procedure to look and feel younger without undergoing invasive surgical procedures.”
