Fotona Laser Treatment is a type of laser skin resurfacing. This means that it destroys the outer layer of skin (the epidermis). Treated skin may be raw and itchy for up to a month as the new skin regrows. You may need to use an ice pack on the affected areas. But it’s worth the wait—the days after laser resurfacing are nothing compared to the years that this treatment can last! This is a great long-term treatment plan.
The thermal effects of laser treatment are also excellent at stimulating collagen production. Collagen fibres help smooth the skin and have many applications in aesthetics. This also means that they work on facial wrinkles, fat reduction, sun damage, age spots, and many other forms of tissue damage!
What to Expect
Each person is different but during the treatment, you can expect minimal to mild discomfort. Immediately following the treatment, you may experience some redness or swelling that will diminish after few hours. Most patients can resume their daily activities immediately following the treatment. It is best to avoid direct sun for few days following the treatment and apply sun screen
Frequently Asked Questions
What can laser treatment do to help my acne?
Fotona’s laser treatment reduces acne inflammation through photoselective absorption and controlled heating. The laser safely penetrates the skin to an optimal treatment depth to thermally and selectively destroy overactive sebaceous glands. In addition, the treatment accelerates the healing process and stimulates collagen modelling, an important step in the long-term treatment of acne.
What if I have acne scars?
Fotona’s laser is ideal for mild scar revision. It safely and effectively penetrates the skin for the gentle resurfacing of the acne-scarred skin, helping to improve your skins texture and tone. Unlike chemical peels and dermabrasion, laser skin resurfacing allows the penetration depth to be precisely controlled by the practitioner. The laser gently vaporizes micron-thin layers of the acne-scarred surface to reveal healthy, undamaged skin below.
