  • Fotona

    The Fontona system uses two different lasers: the Erbium YAG (Er: YAG) and the Neodymium YAG (Nd: YAG). The system utilizes a unique and innovative robotic tip, which scans the area to be treated, resulting in highly homogeneous and precise application.

    Fotona treatment is used for a wide range of skin treatments for all skin types (including brown and black skin tones).

    Benefits of the Fotona system:
    √ Non-invasive
    √ No recovery time following treatment
    √ Does not injure or burn skin
    √ Stimulates natural production of collagen over time
    √ Suitable for all types of skin, including dark skin
    √ Suitable at any time of the year, including the hottest months

    Acne and Acne Scars

    Fotona is effective and safe for the treatment of acne and its related scars, with immediate and long-term results.

    The Nd: YAG laser specifically targets overactive sebaceous glands. What’s more, it reduces the bacteria that cause acne itself, which reduces the risk of further future inflammation. The Er: YAG laser acts on the acne scars, improving the texture and appearance of the skin.

    Benefits of Fotona for acne:

    • Avoids injury when reaching hyperactive sebaceous glands
    • Reduces future acne outbreaks
    • Reduces acne scars

    Facial Treatments

    Because it is not aggressive to the skin or the mucous membranes, Fotona is the first laser system that can be used inside the mouth, and does not present any scratches when applied in the eye area. Facial treatments with Fotona are fast, non-invasive and allow patients to continue with their daily activities.

    The 4-D system of Fotona lasers can be used to treat:

    • Darks circles and bags– reduces flaccidity around the eye area and creates more uniform color
    • Lips– as the laser is safely applied inside the mouth, it stimulates production of collagen from the inside out.
    • Facial rejuvenation – improves the surface and texture of the face, in addition to stimulating the production of collagen in the months following the application
    • Minilifting – applied to the neck and face, the laser lifts the entire area in a painless non-surgical procedure.

    Laserlipolysis

    A quick procedure that requires only local anesthesia, Fotona laser lipolysis reduces localized fat while also treating the skin.
    A very fine optical fiber is inserted under the skin at the treatment area; the laser beams reach and break down only adipocytes (fat cells), which are then eliminated naturally by the body or can be aspirated by the plastic surgeon. At the same time, the laser also treats the skin in the area, avoiding any deformation after fat removal, reducing skin flaccidity and improving skin texture.

    The following areas can be treated:

    • Abdomen
    • Hips and waist
    • Back
    • Thighs
    • Saddlebags
    • Arms
    • Submental areas (jowls)
    • Knees
    • Breasts and buttocks (firmness and support)

    Localized fat, flaccidity and cellulite

    The Fotona laser allows for non-invasive treatment of localized fat, flaccidity and cellulite without the need for post-procedure recovery.

    A robotic wand scans the desired area and applies light evenly and precisely, treating the entire demarcated area. The Nd: YAG laser destroys fat cells by selectively raising the temperature without damaging the skin, while the Er: YAG laser stimulates the production of collagen to firm the skin.

    The following areas can be treated:

    • Abdomen
    • Flanks and waist
    • Back
    • Thighs
    • Saddlebags
    • Arms
    • Submental areas (jowls)
    • Knees
    • Breasts and buttocks (firmness and support)

    Minilifting

    Lifting is literally a lifting of the entire face and neck area, which is conventionally performed through surgery. The Fotona system uses its combination of lasers to perform a mini-lifting – “mini” because it is non-invasive, painless and requires no post-procedure recovery.

    The laser is applied to the neck, face, scalp and behind the ears, heating the muscular fascia (tissue composed of collagen that surrounds the muscle), and moving the tissues up and laterally. The result is elevation of the face as a whole, along with the rejuvenation of the entire treated area.

    Onychomycosis (nail fungus)

    Onychomycosis, or the fungi that develop under the fingernails, is often difficult to treat. But with the innovative Fotona laser technology, the treatment is simple and effective.

    The Nd: YAG laser is applied to nails, which uniformly and deeply heats the affected tissues. In this way, it destroys the fungi and allows for healthy nail growth.

    Permanent Hair Removal

    The Nd:YAG laser in the Fotona system acts specifically on the melanin (pigment) present at the hair roots. Therefore, it destroys hairs permanently, without affecting or burning the skin at the application site.
    Permanent hair removal with Fotona is effective with any skin tone and at any time of the year (including summer) and is much less painful than conventional laser hair removal.

    Stretch Marks

    Fotona is effective in reducing stretch marks, both new and old. In addition to acting on the surface and reaching deeper layers, Fotona stimulates collagen production, which lasts for months after application.

    On average, five sessions (one every 15 days) are needed. The procedure is almost painless and does not require any recovery.

    Treatments for Intimate Areas

    The diameter of the vaginal canal is defined by the set of pelvic floor muscles and ligaments. Even without vaginal delivery, vaginal relaxation can be observed due to loss of muscle tone. The approach of menopause aggravates this situation, due to a related reduction of collagen and elastin. Vaginal Relaxation Syndrome causes the woman to have pain and difficulties in sexual relations, thereby decreasing pleasure for her and her partner.

    The ERBIO FOTONA laser promotes an increase in collagen and elastin, with recovery of tone and vaginal support, and reduces the diameter of the vaginal canal with improved quality of sexual intercourse and urinary incontinence (which begins to appear over time). The external genital area can also be treated, with whitening and improvement of vulvar flaccidity.

    The laser is applied to the vaginal canal in two to four sessions of 45 to 60 minutes each in the office. An anesthetic cream is used, which should be applied to the vagina 30 minutes prior to the procedure. The whole procedure is painless and allows for a fast recover, without cutting, bleeding, or discomfort.

    The ERBIO FOTONA laser can also correct problems arising from vaginoplasty, reductive labioplasty and perineoplasty (rejuvenation of the perineum and the labia majora and minora when they are flaccid).

    Vascular lesions

    ND: YAG Fotona Laser Technology penetrates to a depth of 6 millimeters, which allows effective treatments for vascular lesions.

    Some of the vascular lesions treated include:

    • Micro veins
    • Hemangiomas
    • Port wine stains
    • Telangiectasias
    • Angiomas
