Fotona Laser for Pigmentation

Laser treatment is a quick, effective, and safe solution for removing a wide range of benign pigmented lesions, including freckles, age spots, birthmarks, moles, certain vascular lesions, ephelides, melasma, seborrheic, and actinic keratoses.

It is widely recognized in the medical community that Q-Switched lasers are the ideal tool for effectively removing benign pigmented lesions. Combining 4 laser modalities in an advanced, high-powered solution, Fotona’s OX MAX laser system effectively removes all common pigmented lesions.

Why Fotona Laser for Pigmentation Removal

Fotona’s innovative R-HX handpiece produces a completely flat laser beam profile that is hexagonal in shape to allow for more precise and uniform coverage. Homogeneity of the laser beam profile is important in pigment removal treatments and skin whitening. It ensures safety during treatment since laser energy is evenly distributed across the treated area. The system’s OPTOftex articulated arm increases precision and safety. OPTOflex generates absolute uniform beam profiles. Its ergonomic design allows easy and natural hand movement during procedures.

How Fotona Works

Laser removal of pigmented lesions works by destroying the pigment in the skin without the need for excision. This process in completed in 3 simple steps:

Step 1 – LIGHT ABSORPTION:
The laser produces short nanosecond pulses of intense light that pass harmlessly through the top layers of the skin to be selectively absorbed by the melanin pigment in the lesion.

Step 2 – PIGMENT BREAK-UP:
The laser light is transformed into photoacoustic waves which mechanically break up the melanin pigment into smaller particles.

Step 3 – PIGMENT REMOVAL:
These particles are then removed by the body’s own immune system, as the skin’s macro-phages clear the excess pigment from the area.
