Acne is a common skin disease that affects most people at some time during their lives. It is caused by factors including hormonal changes, certain medications, life style, and the use of certain cosmetic products. Acne is most common in adolescence although for some people it may only first appear in their mid twenties and can even persist into middle age. People often squeeze spots and blemishes because of their unpleasant appearance. This can however cause increased inflammation and in extreme cases lead to permanent scars. Having acne and acne scars for most people is very disturbing and presents a psychological problem as well. Luckily we can now offer a long-term solution.
Fotona offers a laser acne treatment protocol that provides a truly comprehensive solution to the problem of acne. Fotona’s precisely controlled Nd:YAG laser light safely penetrates into skin to effectively target overactive sebaceous glands and to reduce the risk of developing new acne inflammation. For improving the appearance of acne scars, Fotona offers a complementary laser treatment based on a precise and gentle skin resurfacing procedure in which an Er:YAG 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.
What is the Laser Treatment for Active Acne?
Laser treatment for Active Acne reduces acne inflammation by photoselective absorption and heating of overactive sebaceous glands. The power of an Nd:YAG laser is used to accelerate the healing process and to reduce the possibility of developing new acne inflammation.
How Does it Work?
A high power Nd:YAG laser is used to penetrate deeply into the skin deep enough to create thermal effects without damaging the skin surface. The precisely controlled Nd:YAG laser effectively targets overactive sebaceous glands. In addition to its thermal penetration effects, the Nd:YAG acne laser treatment also stimulates collagen remodeling, an important step in the treatment of acne.

What is the Laser Treatment for Active Scars?
Laser treatment for Active Scars is based on the precise and gentle skin resurfacing procedure where the Er:YAG laser is absorbed by the top micro-layers of the skin to vaporize scarred skin and stimulate the production of new collagen in the dermis. The best clinical results are obtained by employing two complementary wavelengths of near infrared lasers (Er:YAG and Nd:YAG).
How Does it Work?
The Er:YAG laser is used to remove micron-thin layers of skin so that new skin can form in its place. Unlike chemical peels and dermabrasion, laser resurfacing allows to be easily controlled. The laser gently vaporizes the acne-scarred surface of the skin so that undamaged skin below is revealed.
