Acne & Acne Scar Correction

The Fotona Nd:Yag laser safely penetrates the skin to an optimal treatment depth to thermally destroy overactive sebaceous glands and kill acne-causing bacteria.

NightLase®: Snoring and Sleep Apnea Treatment

Fotona’s NightLase® therapy is a non-invasive laser treatment for increasing the quality of a patient’s sleep. NightLase® reduces the effects of sleep apnea and decreases the amplitude of snoring by means of a gentle, laser-induced tightening effect caused by the contraction of collagen in the oral mucosa tissue. This results in shrinking of the oral mucosa tissue and thus, less obstructed air flow. Current research shows that NightLase® significantly reduces snoring and effectively lessens the effects of sleep apnea.

HAIRestart®

HaiRestart® works through mild thermal pulses that gently deliver laser light to the tissue, heating the scalp in a safe and controlled way, which leads to gentle heating of the skin and the production of growth factors, without any significant damage to the skin surface. Several clinical studies of HaiRestart® have shown significant improvement in hair growth, increased hair density, and a stabilization of hair loss.

Veins and Vascular Lesions

This Fotona laser treatment selectively heats the target vessels causing coagulation and destroying the blood vessel walls. Unlike other lasers that mainly affect the surface layers of a vascular lesion, the Fotona laser also targets the underlying vascular feeding system, which is important for ensuring the long-term efficacy the treatment. This process is perfectly safe as other healthy veins supply blood to the treated area and the body’s immune system clears away the dead tissue just as with a bruise.
