What are Fotona® lasers?
Fotona is a well-known and highly respected developer of lasers for medical purposes. In dermatology, Fotona lasers can treat a wide range of skin conditions and concerns on a majority of skin types.
Lasers work by emitting a beam of energy using a single light wavelength. Different light wavelengths can serve different purposes in treatment, and many of the lasers used in dermatology are adjustable and customized to you.
The Fotona laser, for example, penetrates deep into the skin to reach veins, hair follicles, and other deeper structures. A Q-switched Fotona laser transforms the light energy into photoacoustic waves to break down certain particles in the skin, like pigments.
Am I a good candidate for treatment with Fotona lasers?
You must visit Martha Viera Dermatology for an individualized consultation to find out if you’re a candidate for your Fotona laser treatment of choice. Your provider reviews your medical history and medications you currently take before examining your skin in the areas you’d like to treat.
While each Fotona laser treatment has its differences, you’re generally a good candidate if you’re over 18 and in good health. Your provider lets you know if there’s any reason why a Fotona laser treatment is not an ideal choice for you.
