Lasers are the Heart of our Business & Fotona's
Founded in 1964, only four years after the invention of the very first laser, Fotona is one of the most experienced developers of high-technology laser systems, recognized for the design, manufacture, and support of advanced solid-state laser systems for:
- medicine (aesthetics, surgery, gynecology),
- industry & defense
Choose Fotona – Choose Perfection
Fotona is fully committed to stringent testing of all components and in-house production of its medical and dental laser systems. This long-term dedication to perfection ensures that the company's laser systems are of the highest quality, reliability and durability.
Highest Performance Laser Systems
With over 45 years of experience in laser technology, Fotona’s line of aesthetic lasers systems is leading the industry forward with new levels of innovation and performance. Fotona is recognized as a world leader in aesthetic applications and technologies, working closely with top universities and medical research centers around the globe.
Two laser wavelengths – all major applications
Fotona was the first manufacturer to introduce two complementary laser wavelengths (Er:YAG and Nd:YAG) in a single system (Skinlight, 1994). Combining both wavelengths in a single treatment makes best use of the unique laser-tissue interaction characteristics of each laser wavelength, and can dramatically improve the outcome of laser-assisted treatments to achieve superior clinical results.
Innovative solutions are available for a wide range of aesthetic treatments, including skin resurfacing & rejuvenation, veins and vascular lesions, pigmented lesions & tattoo removal, permanent hair reduction, and much more.
Nd:YAG lasers – for treatment of deep-lying structures
Fotona's Nd:YAG laser light penetrates deeper into the skin to selectively target even the deepest skin structures such as deep-lying veins and hair follicles. The thermal energy of the laser heats them to a point where the desired effect is achieved.
Er:YAG lasers – for treatment of superficial lesions
Fotona’s Er:YAG laser wavelength targets the uppermost layer of skin, enabling extremely precise, micron layer-by-layer ablation of the epidermis. The energy of the laser is absorbed by the water content in the skin cells and the tissue can be vaporized. This causes the skin treated to shrink, stimulating the production of new collagen in the dermis. The overall result is that new skin forms which is smoother and tighter. VSP technology enables the practitioner to select various modes of operation, ranging from cold ablation to a combined ablative and thermal treatment, and even a completely thermal, non-ablative skin rejuvenation deep in the dermis.
Fotona Er:YAG lasers thus provide the practitioner with the widest possible range of skin rejuvenation treatments (collagen remodeling, skin tightening, light peels, etc.).
Benefits of Fotona Lasers Include:
- High-precision, tissue-selective treatments
- Intuitive, easy-to-use parameter selection
- A haemostatic effect with simultaneous disinfection
- Less invasive, safer treatments, and shorter downtime
- Greater patient comfort and satisfaction
