Skin rejuvenation with the use of fractional photothermolysis(MultiPlex technology) in a combination with the CAP system


A new method of skin rejuvenation with the use of fractional laser photothermolysis (MultiPlex technology) in a combination with
the CAP system is based on the sequential skin exposure to low-intensity radiation with different wavelengths (1,440 nm and 1,320
nm). This method produces much more evident esthetic results than radiation of greater intensity but with one wavelength only.
