Fotona Laser treatments also have specialized treatment options that specifically address concerns that require additional attention. One of these specialized treatment options include:
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.
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.
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.
