Bringing you the best in medical and aesthetic laser technology

The best in laser technology

We’re dedicated to bringing you the best available technology. Which is why we’re proud to partner with Fotona; leading providers of the most innovative laser technology solutions on the market. For 50 years they’ve been leading the way in laser technology. In 1994, they were the first to bring two wavelengths together into one system; a bold, innovative move that’s since paved the way for the industry, for both medical and aesthetic uses.

Technology with worldwide recognition

Whether you’re a gynecologist, aesthetic medical practitioner or surgeon you’ll be familiar with laser technologies as advanced forms of treatments for your patients and clients. The technology we bring to the market is acclaimed by clinical research for medical and aesthetic uses worldwide with proven, outstanding results.

Multifaceted uses across industries

With Fotona laser technology, innovative solutions are available for a wide range of medical and aesthetic treatments. Within gynecology practices, they’re used for treatments such as incontinence, vaginal tightening and pelvic organ prolapse.

Common aesthetic treatments include skin resurfacing and rejuvenation, veins and vascular lesions, pigmented lesions, tattoo removal, permanent hair reduction and much more.

Fotona laser technology is also used within a surgical capacity, offering high performance, minimally invasive treatments including hyperhidrosis, laser lipolysis and endovascular, treatments.

Unique, leading-edge technology

Much of Fotona’s leading-edge medical technology is patented, which has enabled them to design and manufacture the world’s most advanced systems. Their high-performance systems are powered by either Nd:YAG or Er:YAG wavelengths, and the most versatile systems incorporate both. Their Q-switched laser technology holds current patents, with further pending as the technology develops.

Solid-state, crystal laser sources

The systems use solid-state, crystal laser sources that generate the industry’s most proven and effective treatment wavelengths that are ideally suitable for a vast range of clinical and aesthetic procedures. This is further enhanced by various operating modes and supplementary handpieces. All to ensure maximum efficiency and performance within your clinic, across all treatment types.

The most advanced safety features

A distinctive aspect of the technology we provide is its advanced safety features. We know the safety and well-being of your clients is paramount, that’s why we only provide technology with the most advanced features.

VARIABLE SQUARE PULSE

The most advanced safety feature is the VSP (variable square pulse) technology. The VSP avoids the slow rise and long drop-off in pulse power and minimises excess laser energy absorption into the skin and other tissues, through the use of precisely controlled sequences of square-shaped pulses.

This serves to maximise patient safety, as less advanced systems transfer unnecessary laser energy into body tissues, which is then inefficiently converted to heat, increasing the risk of unwanted side effects and reducing the efficacy of the treatment.

ENERGY FEEDBACK CONTROL

Another pioneering safety feature is the advanced level of EFC (energy feedback control) within Fotona lasers. The EFC actively controls and monitors each lasers’ pulsating energy level, meaning output energy is continuously regulated by two energy meters.

This ensures the output energy is matched to the treatment parameters selected, for safe and effective operation. This feature also eliminates the need for the tedious manual calibration procedure required by many other systems at switch on. So you have more time to focus on the treatment at hand and the overall safety of your patient.

OPTOflex® AND VACUUM CELL

A final and outstanding safety feature of Fotona technology is their OPTOflex® and Vacuum Cell Technologies. These groundbreaking optical solutions produce an almost perfectly homogeneous beam profile, which ensures greater safety during treatments as the laser energy is distributed evenly across the treated area.

This also means minimal epidermal damage, and a much lower risk of bleeding, tissue splatter and transient textural changes in the skin. All advanced Q-Switched lasers are equipped with patented OPTOflex® and Vacuum Cell technologies.

Two wavelengths, endless opportunities

The most versatile Fotona laser systems (The SP Line) benefit from two complementary laser wavelengths that work to get the right results across all uses and applications. These wavelengths are Nd:YAG (for the treatment of deep-lying structures) and Er:YAG (for the treatment of more superficial lesions).

Making use of both wavelengths achieves superior clinical results, such as in the revolutionary Fotona 4D Facelift treatment.

Nd:YAG for deep-lying structures

For the treatment of deep-lying structures (such as permanent hair reduction and the treatment of deep-lying veins and vascular lesions), Nd:YAG lasers are used. This laser light has the ability to penetrate deeper into the skin to selectively target even the deepest skin structures such as hair follicles.

Er:YAG for upper layers and micron ablation

For the treatment of the uppermost layers of skin (such as collagen remodelling, skin tightening, and light peels) then Er:YAG laser technology is used. This wavelength allows extremely precise, micron layer-by-layer ablation of the skin. The laser energy is absorbed by water content in the skin cells meaning the tissue can be vapourised. This causes the treated epidermis to shrink, stimulating the production of new collagen in the skin for results that form a new, smoother and tighter appearance.

QCW Nd:YAG for surgery applications

As part of the advanced SP Dynamis and XP Dynamis systems, a powerful QCW Nd:YAG laser is added specifically for surgical treatments such as laser lipolysis, EVLA and hyperhidrosis.

Super powerful Q-switched technology

The thermal energy of the laser and Q-Switched technology within the StarWalker™ system means instead of heat, laser light is transformed into photoacoustic waves, which mechanically break apart unwanted particles, later removed by the body’s own immune system. The latest MaQX device features the new, super powerful (10J) Modulated Acoustics, more powerful than any other system.

Awards and industry recognition

Don’t just take our word for it. This technology has been admired and awarded for its innovation over many years and most recently:

The popular and innovative SP Dynamis system recently won the ‘Best Multi-Use Technology’ at the Aesthetic Industry Awards 2018.

The groundbreaking StarWalker MaQX was named ‘Best New Technology’ at THE European Aesthetic Guides’ first annual Aesthetic Industry Awards, for its Adaptive Structured Pulse technology.
