Fotona Aesthetic Lasers
Highest Performance Laser Systems With over 45 years of experience in laser technology, Fotona’s line of aesthetic lasers systems is leading the industry forward with new levels of innovation and performance. Fotona is recognized as a world leader in aesthetic applications and technologies, working closely with top universities and medical research centers around the globe. Fotona manufactures the highest single-pulse energy Q-switched laser on the aesthetic market (QX MAX), the highest power Nd:YAG laser available (XP MAX), and the most advanced multi-application aesthetic laser system (SP Dynamis). Two laser wavelengths – all major applications Fotona was the first manufacturer to introduce two complementary laser wavelengths (Er:YAG and Nd:YAG) in a single system (Skinlight, 1994). Combining both wavelengths in a single treatment makes best use of the unique laser-tissue interaction characteristics of each laser wavelength, and can dramatically improve the outcome of laser-assisted treatments to achieve superior clinical results. Innovative solutions are available for a wide range of aesthetic treatments, including skin resurfacing & rejuvenation, veins and vascular lesions, pigmented lesions & tattoo removal, permanent hair reduction, and much more. Nd:YAG lasers – for treatment of deep-lying structures Fotona’s Nd:YAG laser light penetrates deeper into the skin to selectively target even the deepest skin structures such as deep-lying veins and hair follicles. The thermal energy of the laser heats them to a point where the desired effect is achieved. With Fotona’s Q-switched technology, instead of heat, laser light is transformed into photoacoustic waves which mechanically break apart unwanted particles, such as pigments, so that the body’s own immune system can remove them. Er:YAG lasers – for treatment of superficial lesions Fotona’s Er:YAG laser wavelength targets the uppermost layer of skin, enabling extremely precise, micron layer-by-layer ablation of the epidermis. The energy of the laser is absorbed by the water content in the skin cells and the tissue can be vaporized. This causes the skin treated to shrink, stimulating the production of new collagen in the dermis. The overall result is that new skin forms which is smoother and tighter. VSP technology enables the practitioner to select various modes of operation, ranging from cold ablation to a combined ablative and thermal treatment, and even a completely thermal, non-ablative skin rejuvenation deep in the dermis. Fotona Er:YAG lasers thus provide the practitioner with the widest possible range of skin rejuvenation treatments (collagen remodeling, skin tightening, light peels, etc.). Benefits of Fotona Lasers Include: High-precision, tissue-selective treatments Intuitive, easy-to-use parameter selection Low cost of consumables A haemostatic effect with simultaneous disinfection Less invasive, safer treatments, and shorter downtime Greater patient comfort and satisfaction The Right Laser for Your Practice Fotona’s wide range of aesthetic laser systems with multi-application platforms allow practitioners to select the product that best meets the needs of their patients. Fotona additionally offers individual Treatment Upgrade Kits, which provide Fotona laser users with the necessary knowledge, accessories and a complete set of tools to confidently and skillfully perform a certain procedure on their patients.
