Acne and Acne Scars


Acne is a common skin condition that affects many people at some point during their lives. It is a complex and continuous cycle that can be caused by many factors, resulting in a hormonal fluctuation that stimulates oil production. It is most common in adolescents but can be experienced at any age and range from mild to severe. Too often, people squeeze spots and blemish it because of their unpleasant appearance. Unfortunately, the habit can increase inflammation and, in extreme cases, lead to permanent scars.

Fotona’s laser treatment can reduce acne inflammation through photoselective absorption and controlled heating. The laser safely penetrates the skin to an optimal treatment depth to thermally and selectively destroy overactive sebaceous glands. In addition, the treatment accelerates the healing process and stimulates collagen remodeling, an important step in the long-term treatment of acne.

Laser light safely penetrates the skin to effectively target overactive sebaceous glands and to reduce the risk of developing new acne inflammation. It also accelerates the healing process and stimulates collagen remodeling, an important step in the long-term treatment of acne.

Fotona’s laser is ideal for mild scar revision. It safely and effectively penetrates the skin for gentle resurfacing of acne-scarred skin, helping to improve your skin texture and tone. Unlike chemical peels and dermabrasion, laser skin resurfacing allows the penetration depth to be precisely controlled by the practitioner. The laser gently vaporizes micro-thin layers of the acne-scarred surface to reveal healthy, undamaged skin below.

Fractional skin resurfacing is a type of Fotona laser treatment that targets microscopic areas of the skin. The laser light pulses heat columns of skin without damaging untreated areas. The results are a marked improvement of fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage, age spots, and other pigment irregularities.
