Fotona SP Dynamis is an advanced and versatile laser which contains two wavelengths (Erbium 2094nm and long pulse Nd:YAG 1064nm). These can be used in many different combinations but what is unique about the Fotona SP Dynamis is that both these wavelengths can be delivered with a prolonged gentle delivery time which gently heats the skin.
Piano mode is unique to the Fotona SP Dynamis laser and involves a very slow, gentle delivery time of the 1064nm long pulse Nd:YAG wavelength. This heats the deeper layers of the skin and leaves the top layer undamaged.
Research has shown that if the dermis of the skin is warmed to 42.5OC – 43OC it causes immediate tightening of the collagen. In addition, it also produces signals called “heat shock proteins” which then stimulate more collagen production over the next few weeks. The prolonged gentle heat stimulates collagen production which results in tightening of the skin, reduction of pores and softening of wrinkles. Because the heat is delivered slowly, the surface of the skin is not over-heated and therefore patients can have this done without any visible skin surface recovery time.
