Fotona Q-Switched Nd:Yag Laser
What is Fotona Q-Switched Nd:Yag Laser?
Nd:YAG laser treatment is a precise, gentle, heat-based skin resurfacing treatment to reduce risks of new acne inflammation and treat acne scars through collagen production stimulation. Due to its skin resurfacing properties, Fotona’s Q-Switched Nd:Yag laser treatment is also suitable for skin whitening, tattoo removal, hair removal and skin rejuvenation.
How does Fotona Q-Switched Nd:Yag Laser work?
Fotona’s laser wavelength is ideal for gentle ablative scar revision and pigmentation removal through laser skin resurfacing. This laser will gently vaporize the micron-thin layers on your skin surface to reveal healthy, undamaged skin below.
Fotona’s laser treatment reduces acne inflammation through carefully controlled heat and photoselective absorption through your skin. If you have active acne problems, Fotona’s laser treatment will penetrate your skin to an optimal skin treatment depth to destroy overly active oil glands on the top micro-layers of your skin.
When set to a different skin depth level, the Q-switched laser treatment can also remove pigmentation, such as those caused by melasma, age spots, or dark circles beneath your eyes.
Since Fotona’s Laser Treatment works on a basis of skin resurfacing, it is also used for tattoo removal and hair removal.
