FotoFacial was developed in 1998 for treatment of skin aging, brown pigmentation, wrinkles, skin laxity, pores, capillary, and rosacea.
The transition from FotoFacial to the newest FotoFacial-RF in 2002 has started a new era for non-invasive wrinkle and skin rejuvenation.
FotoFacial-RF utilizes an innovative Aurora ELOS (Electro-Optical Synergy) technology (Syneron Inc.) combining the power of optical light and radio frequency energy synergistically to offer improved efficiency, reliability, and comfort.
This combination allows the use of lower level of optical energy that is used to preheat the target. The Bipolar RF energy is used to destroy the structure and will compensate for the reduction in optical energy.
As a result, the new FotoFacial-RF is a quantum leap over the old FotoFacial technology that relies solely on optical light energy. FotoFacial-RF can also remove hairs of any colors in any skin types without causing hyperpigmentation or hypopigmentation, not possible with any other systems.
