AFT stands for Advanced Fluorescent Technology. AFT Laser is the next generation of IPL laser treatment technology. This technology improves texture, tone, appearance and age spot removal of the skin with minimal downtime.
AFT uses low energy light to gently heat and reduce skin imperfections. This unique “Equal Distribution” technique, varies from a traditional IPL treatment. Most lasers only produce a single wavelength of light and limits on what they can effectively treat. AFT, however, emits a particular type of light, transmitting energy pulses over many wavelengths. This allows the light to penetrate the skin. Our unique spectrum filtering system eliminates hot spots. This allows the AFT treatment to produce a more powerful yet safe and effective treatment.
Frequently Asked Questions:
AFT stands for Advanced Fluorescence Technology, and IPL stands for Intense Pulsed Light. IPL laser treatments have been offered since the mid-1990s, and AFT laser therapy is an advanced, next-generation of IPL laser therapy. It is also known as a photo facial or photo rejuvenation.
Low-energy light with many wavelengths is pulsed below the skin’s surface into the tissue below. IPL uses broadband pulsed light, and AFT laser technology uses fluorescent pulsed light. A special spectrum filtering system is incorporated to equally distribute the light and heat.
IPL laser treatment has been available for many years. AFT laser therapy is an improved form of Intense Pulse Light. The result is a more powerful IPL, but a safer method because, as mentioned earlier, the heat is apportioned evenly throughout the skin cells, therefore eliminating any hot spots.
An AFT–IPL session is completed in approximately 30 minutes. Dr. Torgerson’s laser clinic will recommend a treatment package of 3 to 4 sessions spaced approximately 4 weeks apart for optimal results.
