When it comes to aesthetic treatments, rejuvenating your beauty can be a tall order if you have multiple concerns you want to address. It’s common to have difficulty fixing your skin problems by yourself. Creams, lotions, and other at-home remedies may not improve your acne, stretch marks, and other issues.
But what you need isn’t a miracle – it’s an all-in-one energy-based treatment that can easily and efficiently treat almost all of your appearance-related concerns. at Key West Med Spa in Key West, FL .
What Is Fotona Laser?
Fotona Laser is a revolutionary and highly versatile series of laser treatments that effortlessly combines the power of two light-based wavelengths, Nd:YAG and eribum:YAG, into a single customizable laser that can treat virtually all aesthetic concerns.
This is because both of these wavelengths have settings that can adjust the depth of the light exposure, which allows the laser to be both ablative and non-ablative depending on what issues are being treated.
What Can Fotona Laser Treat?
If you can name an aesthetic concern, then the chances are high that the Fotona Laser Acne Treatment can treat it. Fotona is a multi-purpose laser that allows for the treatment of both superficial and deeper-tissue appearance concerns on both the face and the body, including:
• Fine lines and wrinkles
• Skin laxity
• Uneven skin tone and skin texture
• Blemishes and dark spots
• Broken capillaries
• Sun damage
• Acne and acne scars
• Enlarged pores
• Warts and skin tags
• Spider veins and varicose veins
Fotona Laser treatment also have specialized treatment options that specifically address concerns that require additional attention. Some of these specialized treatment options include:
TightSculpting is Fotona’s answer to skin tightening concerns on the face and body. Patients who receive TightSculpting can enjoy firmer, smoother, and younger-looking skin thanks in part to the dual-action laser energy used to stimulate collagen production deep within the sub-dermal skin tissues of the body.
Toenail fungus can be an incredibly difficult issue to treat, as very few over-the-counter products adequately treat both the fungus and the root of the fungal infection. With the ClearSteps laser treatment, the fungi that cause the infection are killed directly by exposure to light energy, which creates long-lasting and rapid results.
NightLase is an interesting treatment that alleviates troublesome snoring and sleep apnea. This is done by applying the laser energy to the back of the throat to tighten tissues in the throat and prevent snoring during slumber.
Fotona 4D is a laser facelift that uses four individual Fotona pulse settings to target various layers of the skin to stimulate sustained production of collagen to tighten skin, smooth skin appearance, and erase fine lines and wrinkles.
LipLase is another unique treatment for this laser and acts as an alternative to dermal fillers for the lips. The Fotona treatment device is set to the pulse and wavelength setting appropriate for the delicate skin of the mouth and is then used to stimulate collagen production and create more lip volume.
Top Six Benefits of Fotona Laser Treatment
Fotona treatments are sophisticated laser treatments that can fix many different skin conditions and aesthetic concerns. In fact, one of the primary benefits of this treatment is its versatility, which can address an incredible range of appearance-related concerns that are not traditionally treated with lasers. This is because the laser technology used with the Fotona device can be calibrated to meet customized needs, from hair removal on the body to plumping the lips to treating troublesome snoring.
1. Cellulite Removing
Cellulite is an unpleasant aesthetic problem that causes the texture of your skin to become dimpled and bumpy. This frustrating condition affects about 90% of all women. Laser treatments are a great way to reduce cellulite and obtain smooth, attractive skin.
During your appointment, our Fotona laser treatment will send energy through the top layers of your skin. This energy will improve the collagen and fat cells that have caused you to develop cellulite. The heat emitted by the laser will decrease the amount of fat in your target area and enable your body to make more collagen fibers. As your fat diminishes and your collagen fibers become more abundant, your cellulite will become less noticeable.
2. Skin Tightening
If you would like to rejuvenate your face without getting a complicated, invasive procedure, you should consider using this skin-tightening method. This special technique will use laser energy with two different wavelengths to complete your four-step treatment.
First, we will use laser energy to tighten the skin around the lower portion of your face. This step of your treatment will reduce the appearance of the creases and wrinkles around your nose. Next, we will use our laser to treat deep lines and pigmentation issues on your face. During the third step, we will use heat energy to lift and firm your skin. Finally, we will use a laser peel to remove imperfections from the top layer of your skin.
3. Body Sculpting
If you’ve always wanted firm skin and a slim body, you should consider receiving a TightSculpting treatment. During this type of laser treatment, we will use our specialized laser to heat up the fat cells and other tissues in your target area. As your fat cells heat up, they will begin to break down. Your body’s metabolism will remove these damaged cells from your system.
Healing up your tissues will cause the existing collagen fibers in your skin to become stronger. Over time, the amount of collagen in your skin will also increase. As the structure of your skin improves, your skin will start to look tighter and firmer.
4. Acne Scar Improving
If you have had blackheads, whiteheads, and other blemishes in the past, you might have noticeable acne scars on your face. We can use a laser treatment to reduce these acne scars and improve your skin. During your scar reduction treatment, we will use laser energy to gently resurface your skin. This energy will improve your skin’s tone and texture.
Some scar reduction treatments may cause you to experience uncomfortable burning sensations. Since this technique uses very precise amounts of energy, you won’t have to deal with burning, excessive peeling, and other unpleasant feelings once your laser treatment is complete.
5. Stretch Mark Minimizing
You don’t have to be overweight or unhealthy to suffer from stretch marks. It’s common to develop these lines when you go through pregnancy or experience a sudden growth spurt. Our sophisticated treatments can remove these marks by sending laser energy into your body. This is done by increasing the collagen production within the skin and increasing cellular turnover to heal stretch marks from within and fade their superficial appearance.
6. Acne Diminishing
Acne develops when the dead skin cells, oil, and other materials clog the hair follicles in your skin. This laser treatment can diminish your chances of developing future acne breakouts by reducing the amount of oil that your sebaceous glands produce.
In addition, the carefully controlled heat that our laser emits will help your skin heal from previous acne breakouts. This energy will also remodel the existing collagen fibers in your skin.
How Does This Treatment Work?
This is a non-invasive laser treatment, which means that it will not breach the surface of the skin to produce results. The dynamic settings of the laser allow for each of your treatments to be customized to your specific needs.
The treatment itself is performed using the patented Fotona device. Your treatment appointments will take anywhere from 30 to 90 minutes to complete, depending on how many areas are being treated.
What Will My Laser Treatment Be Like?
We will perform your laser treatment at our office in Key West, Florida. You should wear comfortable clothing to your laser appointment. In addition, you should not apply makeup or other products to your treatment area. After we have finished sending laser energy into your skin, you will be able to leave our office and continue with the rest of your daily activities in Key West.
When Will I See the Full Benefits of My Laser Treatment?
You are likely to see some positive changes in the skin in your target area right away. For example, if you use our laser to renew the skin on your face, your skin will look fresher and tighter after you leave our office. That said, many of these treatments enhance your skin by increasing your collagen production. Since this process takes time, you might see the full effect of your treatment within six months.
Does This Treatment Hurt?
Fotona Laser combines several different wavelength depths to achieve optimal penetration of the skin surface and dermal skin layers, as well as combining multiple laser types that alternate between cold and thermal energy. As it is, Fotona treatment is not painful, although it will involve a moderate amount of sensation on the skin for the duration of the treatment.
If you have particularly sensitive skin, we can discuss the use of topical numbing cream or mild sedative options to ensure your comfort during your treatment appointments. Many patients simply opt to take over-the-counter pain relievers about one to two hours before a treatment appointment.
How Many Treatments Will You Need?
The number of treatments you will need depends directly on the areas you want to treat and the severity of each of your appearance-related concerns.
For laser hair removal, you will likely require at least five treatments spaced one month apart to permanently reduce the amount of hair grown on your body. Skin tightening and skin resurfacing treatments, on the other hand, may require more treatments to achieve your ideal appearance goals; if you receive a Fotona4D treatment, your skin will look smoother and more attractive after you receive one laser session.
Under many circumstances, you will see significant improvements in your skin after you get one laser appointment. However, there is one type of treatment that has a more cemented treatment timeline, and that’s NightLase for snoring and sleep apnea. Most patients require only two to three treatments spaced one month apart to significantly decrease nighttime snoring and sleep disturbance issues.
How Often Will You Need Treatment to Maintain Results?
Although you can expect long-lasting results from this treatment, you should know that you will need to have maintenance appointments for some appearance-related concerns. For example, the treatment of acne, skin tightening and resurfacing, hair removal, and rosacea all require occasional top-up treatments to maintain results, usually once every four to six months, depending on the area you are treating.
Other treatments, such as for spider veins, will last for as long as you do not develop further vascular issues. Likewise, treatments for toenail fungus are also permanent for as long as the fungus does not develop again.
Who Is This Treatment Right For?
Virtually all patients are appropriate candidates for this treatment, as the customizable laser settings make the treatment suitable for all skin tones and skin types. The single restriction is related to pregnancy, as laser treatments can’t be performed on women who are currently pregnant.
If you have one or more aesthetic concerns you would like to treat with non-invasive cosmetic treatments, and you are not currently pregnant, then you are likely a good candidate for Fotona. The best candidates have mild-to-moderate aesthetic concerns related to:
● Skin laxity
● Stretch marks
