LASER RESURFACING TO FESTOONS:
We have two methods for treating festoons:
Laser Resurfacing: Laser skin resurfacing, utilizing sophisticated Erbium: Yag and Carbon Dioxide (CO2) lasers, has proven to be a preferred option for the treatment of festoons. This groundbreaking procedure takes advantage of creating a wound in the area of the festoon and coaxing the skin to heal this area with better quality skin.
By purposefully injuring the skin with just the right amount of injury, the skin can heal without any problems with scarring and, in fact, with better quality skin.
AGNES RF Macro-needling: AGNES technology allows us to use a needle to directly target the festoon and uses radio-frequency to destroy the fat cells creating the festoon. AGNES is safe on all skin types and does require a consultation prior to treatment. It is typical that multiple treatments are necessary for best results.
