The Fotona Long Pulse Nd: YAG is a non-invasive laser treatment that is effective in treating different types of skin conditions. It provides the ability to penetrate deeply into the skin to create thermal effects without damaging the skin surface. Its homogeneous absorption in skin and low absorption in melanin allow it to be safely used with all skin types.

The Fotona Long Pulse Nd: YAG laser reduces acne inflammation through photo selective absorption and controlled heating effects. The high-powered Nd:YAG laser penetrates the skin safely at a pre-determined depth, and selectively destroy overactive oil producing glands that cause acne.

Laser reduces Acne Inflammation

The Fotona Long Pulse Nd:YAG laser encourages the healing process by stimulating collagen remodeling. This is a key step for long-term treatment, as it not only stops acne production and reduces possibility of future inflammation, but also encourages gradual full recovery of the skin.

Clinical References

Numerous studies have been done by medical experts on the Fotona Laser. One such study by a team of doctors, after conducting clinical tests on patients with severe acne, concluded that the Fotona Laser managed to remove acne faster than expected. No side effects were observed after 2 years of close monitoring of the patients.

Anyone with acne and/or spider veins is suitable, no matter how mild or severe. Treatment also works for all skin types.

During treatment, you’ll feel split-second “flashes” prickling on your skin. Most patients can easily tolerate this sensation, even without numbing cream applied. This is partly due to a skin cooler being administered so you will not feel any heat from the laser.

As it is a non-invasive procedure, this treatment is very safe and side effects are almost unheard of.

Those with mild to moderate conditions typically need around 3-6 sessions, while moderate to severe conditions need up to 9 sessions. Visible results will accumulate after each session, leading to a “final result” a few days after your last session.

Each treatment will take around 15-20 minutes.

There are no side effects, other than some redness and mild swelling around the treatment area that will subside in a few hours.

There is virtually no downtime, and any numbness around the treatment area will be gone when you step out of the treatment room.

Once fully treated, it’s unlikely you’ll need any maintenance. That’s because the Fotona Laser technology is designed to not only treat active acne but also prevent future inflammation.
