As we age, our skin cells begin to lose moisture, and collagen production is reduced, combined with sun damage and other environmental factors fine lines, wrinkles, textural irregularities, and sunspots begin to form.
The Fotona Laser Peel is a delicate and precise superficial laser peel that targets and provides impressive results in the reduction of visible signs of aging in the face and neck.
With a Fotona Laser Peel, the treatment provider has the ability to completely customize the treatment by controlling the depth and region of your treatments.
This enables each treatment to be tailored specifically to the patient’s individual skin conditions and concerns.
During a laser peel, the laser gently removes 4-50 microns from the epidermis to promote regeneration of the skin which results in a smoother, more youthful look and radiant skin.
The treatment improves fine lines, wrinkles, pigmentation, tone, and texture, and reduces enlarged pores.
Additionally, the thermal properties of the laser penetrate deeper into the dermis to stimulate the production of collagen.
Topical numbing is applied prior to the treatment to help with patient comfort. Each person is different, but during the treatment, you can expect minimal to mild discomfort.
Immediately following the treatment, you may experience some redness and sunburn-like sensation, depending on your customized treatment settings.
An occlusive barrier such as a laser peel balm is recommended to be kept on at all times for 2-4 days post-treatment. Some more aggressive treatments may have redness and mild swelling for 2-4 days.
It is best to avoid direct sun for a few days or longer following treatment and to apply sunscreen at all times while outdoors.
Laser acne treatment provides a truly comprehensive solution to the problem of acne. Fotona’s precisely controlled laser light safely penetrates into the skin to effectively target overactive sebaceous glands and reduce the risk of developing new acne inflammation.
For active acne, laser treatment reduces acne inflammation through photoselective absorption and controlled heating effects.
The laser light safely penetrates the skin to an optimal treatment depth to thermally and selectively destroy overactive sebaceous glands.
In addition to its thermal penetration effects, the acne laser treatment also accelerates the healing process and stimulates collagen remodeling, an important step in the long-term treatment of acne.
For improving the appearance of acne scars and blemishes, laser treatment is based on a precise and gentle skin resurfacing procedure in which a laser beam is absorbed by the top micro-layers of the skin to vaporize scarred tissue and stimulate the production of new collagen in the dermis.
Our laser treatment also provides the minimal penetration depth required for light resurfacing of acne-scarred skin and skin irregularities, helping to improve skin texture and tone.
Unlike chemical peels and dermabrasion, laser skin resurfacing allows the penetration depth to be precisely controlled.
The laser gently vaporizes micron-thin layers of the scarred surface or skin blemish to reveal healthy, undamaged skin below. Laser resurfacing is a fast, safe and simple procedure.
