Onychomycosis

ClearSteps Laser Onychomycosis Treatment

Fotona’s ClearSteps™ Onychomycosis Treatment is a revolutionary, patient-friendly method for treating onychomycosis (toenail fungus).

It is a simple and effective procedure that uses the power of Nd:YAG laser light to heat evenly throughout the depth of the effected nail and skin tissue, effectively weakening and killing parasitic fungi which have infected the patient’s nails.

Safe and Effective, Without Side-Effects

Read More

Deep, pulse-profile heating of the nail bed stimulates the killing of parasitic fungus. The natural growth and immune processes of the body are then able to restore the nail to its pristine state. Compared to traditional methods, the effects of laser light spread evenly throughout the tissue and are not subject to either the limits of chemical diffusion (as are topicals) or the induction of hepatoxic side effects (as is the case with oral medications).

ClearSteps™ is Performed in Three Simple Steps:

Step 1: File down the Nail. During onychomycosis the nail will become deformed and overgrown, it may also thicken. Filing down the nail allows laser light to fully penetrate into the treatment site.

Step 2: Administer Nd:YAG laser pulses in a circular pattern covering the entire nail. Slightly overlap the beam so that the nail is fully covered. The patient should feel a slight heating sensation throughout the nail.

Step 3: Target Nd:YAG laser pulses around the perimeter of the nail bed and around the finger or toe. Often parasitic fungus has worked its way beyond the nail bed and needs to be eliminated in all the tissue surrounding the nail to prevent recurrence.

The ClearSteps™ treatment is usually performed four times, at one week intervals. All of the nails should be treated during every treatment. Laser light can also effectively treat fungus which has infected skin tissue.

Fotona’s ClearSteps™ Onychomycosis Treatment can be performed with all Fotona Nd:YAG lasers, including the following systems:

Pigmented Lesions

A Fast, Simple and Minimally Invasive Tx

Pigmented lesions are remarkably common and the overwhelming majority are benign.

It is widely recognized in the medical community that Q-Switched lasers are the ideal tools for effectively removing benign pigmented lesions. Multi-wavelength, Q-Switched laser systems with frequency-doubled KTP are uniquely able to produce very short pulses of intense light that are selectively absorbed by treatment-specific pigments in a lesion.

Four Wavelengths for the Widest Range of Lesions

Fotona’s StarWalker and QX MAX laser system are the perfect tool for treating a wide range of pigmented lesions, enabling treatments for everything from nevi (moles) and vascular lesions to ephelides, sunspots and melasma. Superficial lesions can be treated most effectively with the 532 nm wavelength, while the 1064 nm wavelength can be used to target deeper lesions.

Safe, Effective and Minimally Invasive Treatments

Read More

For a difficult-to-treat condition such as melasma, StarWalker and QX MAX are especially effective due to the selectivity of Q-switched light, enabling it to break apart pigments only and not cells. This means that pigment destruction can take place without ablating the skin – a unique feature that also allows other treatment possibilities, such as the safe and effective removal of complex, multi-colored tattoos.

In addition to Q-Switched lasers, Er:YAG lasers can also be used for the ablation of keratoses, moles, and other pigmented lesions, enabling the removal of the epidermis and superficial dermis in a controlled and relatively bloodless manner. Clinical studies have shown that Er:YAG lasers are very effective for the treatment of keratoses, with a clinical and histological improvement of up to 93% after just one treatment.

Treatments for the removal of pigmented lesions can be best performed with the following Fotona laser systems:

StarWalker – StarWalker’s MaQX peak energy, four colors and proprietary innovative solutions make StarWalker an industry-leading, ultra-performance pigmented-lesion-removal system.

Fotona’s QX MAX system is the highest performance single-pulse Q-Switched laser on the market. With four wavelengths in one system, the QX MAX provides all the tools you’ll need for effective removal of most types of pigmented and vascular lesions as well as complex, multi-colored tattoos.

The SP Line of multi-application laser systems from Fotona (SP Dynamis & SP Spectro) provides a single, uniquely capable aesthetic solution that combines the power of the industry’s highest performance Er:YAG, Nd:YAG and QCW* Nd:YAG lasers, ideal for treating keratoses, moles, and other pigmented lesions plus a wide range of additional treatments in aesthetics, dermatology, and surgery.

Superior Performance

High-energy single-nanosecond pulse technology is vastly more efficient at removing pigments than multiple-pulse lasers that generate equivalently high energies. The StarWalker’s and QX MAX’s high-energy, single-pulse Q-switched lasers allows larger spot sizes to remain effective by avoiding the scattering effect of laser light in skin tissue. With high-energy single pulses, more and deeper-lying pigments can be targeted and removed.

With high-energy laser pulses, the use of larger spot sizes is enabled, requiring less fluence to be effective.

Handpieces & Accessories

Fotona’s line of specially designed, advanced and easy-to-use Titanium handpieces allow safe, precise, controlled and effective delivery of laser pulses to the treatment area.

Scar Revision

The minimally invasive nature of laser scar-revision treatments means that they are well tolerated by patients, and faster recovery times allow the psychological impact of scar revision treatments to be realized much sooner by patients.

Harnessing the Medical Power of Light

Lasers are ideally suited for the effective treatment of a wide range of scar tissues. For hypertrophic scars, clinical research conducted with the Nd:YAG wavelength has demonstrated substantial improvements in the aesthetic appearance and overall tissue quality of a scar, including erythema, volume, pliability, etc. In many cases, further improvement can also be obtained using gentle ablative Er:YAG skin resurfacing. Acne scars in particular respond well to Er:YAG treatments.

The collective desire to stay forever young has created an enormous market for anti-ageing treatments.

Recent developments in laser technology are now delivering a longer lasting and scientifically proven method of restoring the natural beauty of the skin. Unlike traditional treatments such as dermabrasion and chemical peels, the unique characteristics of laser skin resurfacing allow more accurate and precise control over the treatment process.

Read More

Skin resurfacing and rejuvenation treatments can be performed either in ablative modes with an Er:YAG laser or non-ablatively with a Nd:YAG laser, depending on the particular aesthetic outcome that the patient and practitioner wish to achieve. In addition, ablative and non-ablative treatments can also be combined into a comprehensive anti-aging treatment, such as Fotona’s TwinLight™ Fractional Rejuvenation system.

Introducing TwinLight® Fractional Rejuvenation

Past skin rejuvenation procedures treated large areas of skin, whether aged or not. But with Fotona’s revolutionary TwinLight® Fractional Rejuvenation method, the laser light precisely targets imperfections in the skin, leaving the surrounding healthy skin untouched. The heat from the laser energy also stimulates the production of new collagen in the dermis, and the surrounding, untreated skin helps to speed the rejuvenation process.

A Simple and Effective 3-Step Solution

TwinLight® Fractional Rejuvenation is a simple 3-step procedure optimized to significantly improve skin smoothness and give it a fresher, healthier look. The deep heating effect of Fotona’s Nd:YAG laser beam helps rejuvenate and stimulate the skin, while the Er:YAG beam helps the body to form new, tighter skin.

Step 1 – Conditioning: An Nd:YAG beam is passed along the surface twice. The first pass provides a short stimulus to the skin, the second pass penetrates the tissue, causing deep FRAC3® heating and conditioning the skin for an effective fractional treatment therapy.

Step 2 – Fractional therapy: Old, worn-out skin is ablated away by a fractional Er:YAG laser. The precise micro-ablated channels will be replaced with new, tighter and healthy tissue as new skin forms.

Step 3 – Peeling: The skin is ablated with a light full Er:YAG beam, which finishes the treatment and removes superficial imperfections.

Using fractional light to rejuvenate the skin can produce an effect that is perfectly graded to your patient’s expectations, and offers a degree of control and efficacy that allows for highly precise sculpting of the skin. Treatments can extend from light touch-ups to deep collagen remodeling, ideal for patients who want drastic rejuvenation effects, but are not inclined towards aggressive surgical or chemical alternatives. This treatment is suitable for all skin types and tones, with minimal patient downtime.

The targeted chromophore for vascular lesions is intravascular oxyhemoglobin; thus, thermal damage is largely restricted to cutaneous blood vessels. The energy from the laser is absorbed by the blood in the vein, converted into heat, and the vein walls are subsequently destroyed. In comparison with other wavelengths, which mainly affect the surface layers of a lesion, Nd:YAG light 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.

Treatments for the removal of vascular lesions can be best performed with the following Fotona laser systems:

XP Line – Fotona’s XP line of Nd:YAG lasers is  an ideal choice if you value high-quality aesthetic treatments without compromising efficacy. At the heart of Fotona XP lasers is a high performance, non-ablative long-pulse Nd:YAG laser, which can be combined with an optional* surgical QCW Nd:YAG laser to offer an extremely wide aesthetic treatment range.

StarWalker – StarWalker’s VERSA3, FRAC3 and VERDE modalities provide effective tools for removing many types of vascular lesions.

Introducing TwinLight® Fractional Rejuvenation

Past skin rejuvenation procedures treated large areas of skin, whether aged or not. But with Fotona’s revolutionary TwinLight® Fractional Rejuvenation method, the laser light precisely targets imperfections in the skin, leaving the surrounding healthy skin untouched. The heat from the laser energy also stimulates the production of new collagen in the dermis, and the surrounding, untreated skin helps to speed the rejuvenation process.

A Simple and Effective 3-Step Solution

TwinLight® Fractional Rejuvenation is a simple 3-step procedure optimized to significantly improve skin smoothness and give it a fresher, healthier look. The deep heating effect of Fotona’s Nd:YAG laser beam helps rejuvenate and stimulate the skin, while the Er:YAG beam helps the body to form new, tighter skin.

Step 1 – Conditioning: An Nd:YAG beam is passed along the surface twice. The first pass provides a short stimulus to the skin, the second pass penetrates the tissue, causing deep FRAC3® heating and conditioning the skin for an effective fractional treatment therapy.

Step 2 – Fractional therapy: Old, worn-out skin is ablated away by a fractional Er:YAG laser. The precise micro-ablated channels will be replaced with new, tighter and healthy tissue as new skin forms.

Step 3 – Peeling: The skin is ablated with a light full Er:YAG beam, which finishes the treatment and removes superficial imperfections.

Using fractional light to rejuvenate the skin can produce an effect that is perfectly graded to your patient’s expectations, and offers a degree of control and efficacy that allows for highly precise sculpting of the skin. Treatments can extend from light touch-ups to deep collagen remodeling, ideal for patients who want drastic rejuvenation effects, but are not inclined towards aggressive surgical or chemical alternatives. This treatment is suitable for all skin types and tones, with minimal patient downtime.

The following dual-wavelength laser systems from Fotona are ideal for TwinLight® Fractional Rejuvenation as well as other skin resurfacing and rejuvenation treatments:

The SP Line of multi-application laser systems from Fotona (SP Dynamis & SP Spectro) provides a single uniquely capable and full-featured system offering the power of the industry’s highest performance Er:YAG and Nd:YAG lasers, ideal for fractional skin resurfacing and a wide range of other applications in aesthetics and dermatology.

its relatively low absorption in water

the largest directly hea­ted volume of subcutaneous tissue

the smallest undesirable thermal effect on neighbo­ring dermal tissue, and

a significantly higher ability to coagulate blood vessels.

Safe, Effective, and Minimally Invasive

Fotona’s laser lipolysis procedure does not require the use of a general anesthetic. A very fine laser fiber is inserted into the treatment area, where the laser light causes swelling and rupture of adipocytes. When the fat is melted, it can either be absorbed by the body or removed by the physician.

Simultaneously, the laser also tightens the surrounding skin to prevent it from sagging after the removal of unwanted fat. In fact, the same laser can be used for skin tightening, tone and textural improvements elsewhere on the body.

Laser lipolysis can be performed with the following Fotona laser systems:
