    Advanced Fluorescent Light Technology or abbreviated AFT, superior to IPL technology, is used to treat facial Top Boerne San Antonio Dermatologist Performs Laser Resurfacingredness, fine wrinkles, flushing and pigmentation problems on the face, neck, hands and chest. This advanced technology converts shorter, more harmful wavelengths of light into useful, therapeutic wavelengths.

    This is why our AFT laser treatments can restore a more youthful appearance to your skin with no down time, mild discomfort, and minimal risk. The cooled tip of the hand piece delivers a warm flash of bright light energy to about one square inch of skin. The device “photo rejuvenates” skin by shining intense bursts of light on it for a split second and delivering one flash every two to four seconds. A series of light pulses is delivered to the skin.

    The AFT is engineered to treat spider veins, bacteria and microorganisms, and sun spots. An added benefit from using AFT is that while it treats, it also stimulates collagen regeneration and synthesis over the course of 5-12 weeks. In order to achieve desired results, many patients require a minimum of 3-5 treatments spaced 3-6 weeks apart.
