OTHER LASER TREATMENTS

Laser skin resurfacing (peeling)

The Fotona Dynamis SP laser erbium:YAG (2940  nm) is attracted to water and ablates superficial layers  of skin resulting in  reduction of wrinkles ( smoker's lines, frown lines ), pigmentation, acne scarring, stretch marks, genital hyperpigmentation and removal benign skin lesions such as warts, milia and skin tags.  It operates in fully ablative or a fractional mode. The latter leaves create tiny channels in the skin leaving healthy intact skin in between. This speeds up the healing process, results in stimulation of collagen and regeneration of treated tissue.

   

Prior to the procedure you will be advised to prepare the skin with retinol, brightening products and sunscreen to improve the results of laser treatment and reduce adverse reactions such as post inflammatory hyperpigmentation - PIH.

  

It is normal to experience redness, burning sensation, swelling and crusting after treatment for several days. The  downtime depends on the severity of the treated condition and intensity of laser settings and may last between 7-10 days on an average.  Healing is accelerated with appropriate aftercare and the use of broad spectrum sunscreen.  It is not unusual to have persistent redness for 1 - 3 months after treatment.  Number of treatments varies between 1-3 sessions 4-6 weeks apart.   The skin will be smoother with a visible glow.

Acne scarring

The Fotona SP Dynamis laser with its dual wavelength is designed to treat all stageing of acne including scarring.  It allows on gentle and precise ablation of acne scars, reduction of hyperpigmentation and acne breakouts.

Fotona F-22 Er: YAG scanner
 

handpiece is a computer-controlled scanning device for fractional erbium:Yag treatments. It allows Dr Beata to treat all types of acne scars and customize laser settings in a precise manner.  

Treating acne scars is a challenging skin problem, but with patience and a tailored treatment plan, improvements can be achieved over time. Treating acne scars is usually a process involving a combination therapy, which may include erbium;Yag laser, SylFirm X microneedling radiofrequency, subcision, TCA cross, dermal fillers, or other modalities. 

You are not a candidate for laser resurfacing if you have: excessively sagging skin, deep wrinkles, active acne, weakened immune system, uneven skin tone, during pregnancy or breastfeeding

Laser vaginal rejuvenation & tightening

FOTONA unique non-ablative Erbium:YAG SMOOTH® mode has been shown to be safe and effective treatment for women affected by consequences of life events like vaginal delivery of a baby or menopause.  Controlled thermal energy produced by laser stimulates regeneration of vaginal walls through triggering the release of healing proteins and an immediate gentle shrinking of collagen fibers followed by stimulation of new collagen and blood vessels production leading to gentle tightening effect and an improvement in function and quality of life (https://www.fotona.com/en/#gynecology)

Abstracts of published scientific studies examining the effectiveness and safety of Fotona SMOOTH® laser therapy in gynecology have been published in the Fotona Compendium of Clinical Studies which is available on request at Eternal Clinic.   Vaginal laser rejuvenation offers an alternative to conservative methods and is particularly useful when hormonal supplementation is not indicated. It has been shown to be safe and effective in cases of loose vagina after delivery of a baby or as a result of menopausal changes leading to shrinking and atrophy.  You can expect gentle firming and tightening effect (IntimaLase), improved lubrication, pain free sex and better sexual satisfaction (RenovaLase) and better bladder control (IncontiLase)

Laser hair removal

The success of laser hair reduction treatment depends on skin and hair type and the skills of the laser practitioner. You can expect a significant reduction in unwanted hair with thinning of the future hair which becomes lighter and less pronounced. 

Fotona's high-performance Nd:YAG laser systems with FRAC3® technology offer a safe and effective hair reduction – using an innovative system that effectively and selectively targets hair follicles.   It is safe to use on all skin types, even darker skin tones.  Depending on the size of the treatment area, between three six to 8 sessions, six to eight weeks apart will lead to a significant aesthetic and clinical result. Hair removal can be performed on the face, body and intimate parts ( bikini, hollywood, brasilian) with the touch of a laser light. We can even shape eyebrows with this modality.  Any discomfort is minimised with added cooling. Mild transient redness and swelling is a rare side adverse reaction of this treatment.

Dr Beata with her dermatological training and experience can remove benign skin lesions safely using state of art Fotona SP Dynamis laser.   The lesions include but are not limited to moles, warts, milia, fatty deposits (xanthelasma), sebaceous cysts, age spots, skin tags and sun spots just to name a few.  One treatment is usually sufficient, however some lesions might require another session to clear completely. Clinical studies have shown that Er:YAG lasers are very effective for the treatment of benign skin lesions and histological improvement of up to 93% after just one treatment.

Laser removal of facial vascular lesions and leg veins

We offer a comprehensive treatment for facial veins, redness and breakouts associated with rosacea and spider veins, thread veins on face and legs using Fotona NdYag laser which is suitable for all skin types.

We assure maximum treatment efficacy and speed due to Fotona's highly versatile parameters selection.  Two to three treatment sessions in monthly intervals are recommended. Minimal discomfort is managed with cooling.

Laser  removal of pigmentation

Uneven patches of discoloration on your skin can be known as sun spots, age spots, dark spots, pigmentation or brown marks. The main factor that causes uneven skin tone is ultraviolet radiation as it accelerates the production of pigment called melanin in your skin. Pigmentation caused by sun exposure will not appear overnight. Any brown patches that you see on your skin now are most likely the result of sun damage from years ago. Other contributing factors are hormones (from the pill and pregnancy) in melasma, scarring (from acne, burns or squeezing blemishes) and heat.  We can help to remove accumulated pigment with our erbium:Yag or Nd:Yag laser or chemical peels combined with specialist brightening skincare and sun protection.

Laser Pain Management - ComfortLase

Laser photobiomodulation and pain management is a great treatment for wound healing and pain reduction

Photobiomodulation (PBM) provides a clinically proven, non-invasive solution for a wide variety of wound healing and pain management in musculoskeletal disorders  due to age related conditions (Dupuytren's contractures) or sport injuries.  PBM utilizes low-level, visible-red to near-infrared light energy, which stimulates cells to naturally heal, relieve pain and reduce inflammation. Additionally, the process results in accelerated tissue regeneration, stimulation of cell metabolism, increased lymphatic flow and stimulation of micro-circulation. A course of treatments is recommended.

TightSculpting® – laser fat reduction & skin tightening

Fotona TightSculpting® is a unique dual-wavelength, non-invasive laser treatment for sculpting and skin tightening on all body areas. TightSculpting® destroys adipocytes and stimulates collagen remodeling in the treated area. The procedure is a fast, safe and effective

1st step: Deep skin tightening and fat reduction with PIANO® pulse

The unique, super long Nd:YAG pulse mode is designed for homogenous tissue heating comfortably, safely and rapidly.  It delivers energy to subcutaneous tissue and stimulates metabolism of fat cells, leaving the epidermis intact. The PIANO® mode resulting in full-thickness bulk heating

2nd step: Improvement of skin surface laxity with SMOOTH® pulse

The second stage consists of a unique non-ablative Er:YAG SMOOTH® mode for skin tightening. The intense, controlled surface tissue heating stimulates collagen remodeling and initiates neocollagenesis. The effects result in an overall improvement of laxity and elasticity in the treatment areas.
