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.
A Synergistic Treatment Solution
With Fotona’s pioneering dual-wavelength scar-revision therapy, both nonablative Nd:YAG and fractional-ablative Er:YAG wavelengths are combined as part of a single comprehensive scar-treatment regimen, with immediate visible results that surpass that of traditional laser-based and conventional scar treatment techniques. Dual-wavelength scar treatment therapies provide a highly effective solution that not only addresses a scar’s aesthetic appearance but also helps to resolve complicating factors with the scar’s vascular feeding system.
The following dual-wavelength laser systems from Fotona are ideal for scar revision treatments, plus a wide range of 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 solution offering the power of the industry's highest performance Er:YAG and Nd:YAG lasers, ideal for scar-revision treatments and a wide range of other applications in aesthetics and dermatology. The SP Dynamis also includes an additional surgical QCW Nd:YAG laser for lipolysis, hyperhidrosis and many other surgical procedures.
Both the SP Dynamis and the SP Spectro are equipped with a high performance Er:YAG laser that ablates skin more efficiently due to proprietary VSP (Variable Square Pulse) technology, which can be accurately tuned to varying “cold” ablation and non-ablative thermal ratios. Full customizability allows you to precisely attain the clinical outcomes your patients desire.
The Nd:YAG laser on the SP Dynamis & SP Spectro perfectly complements the Er:YAG laser’s ablative action with the ability to penetrate deeply into the skin to create thermal effects without damaging the skin surface. Compared to conventional Nd:YAG technologies, Fotona’s proprietary VSP pulses create virtually instantaneous temperature increases that are limited to the targeted structures only. No unnecessary energy is deposited into the skin.
