There's a new treatment in clinics called photobiomodulation that claims to be able to treat acne without pain or discomfort. Does it really work?
Thank you for your question. Photobiomodulation has been used in a variety of conditions because of its regenerative properties. It refers to the use of low-level laser light to activate pathways in the skin cell’s powerhouse known as mitochondria, that accelerate tissue repair and healing. Photobiomodulation is used for anti-aging, anti-inflammatory, and wound healing purposes on the skin, and has beneficial effects on active acne, wrinkles, pigmentation, acne marks, as well as sensitive skin.
What is the difference between an aesthetic doctor and a dermatologist? How do I decide which is more suitable for my needs?
A dermatologist is a specialist trained in managing disease in the skin. An aesthetic doctor is usually a general practitioner with a specific interest in aesthetic medicine, even though there are some specialists from other medical fields that also choose to focus on only doing aesthetic medicine (commonly general surgeons and gynaecologists). Aesthetic medicine is not recognized as a formal medical specialty yet in most parts of the world, because it is very new, and many healthcare systems in the world do not provide formal training in aesthetic medicine.
Fotona 4D The Fotona 4D is a unique protocol that uses 4 different lasers to target different layers of ageing, from deep cheek fat and retaining ligaments, to the surface fat layers, deep skin and also surface skin layers. It is the only laser system in the world that makes use of various non-ablative lasers that can reach down bone deep to tighten different layers. Thermage Thermage is a branded monopolar radio-frequency device that delivers electromagnetic energy into the different layers of skin to induce heat to cause tightening.
