How It Works:
The Fotona® Acne Treatment effectively and safely penetrates into the skin deep enough to the development of acne inflammation through photo-selective absorption and heating of overactive sebaceous glands—all without damaging the skin’s surface. Furthermore, its thermal penetration effects also accelerate the recovery process, eliminate scarred dermis, and trigger the production of new collagen on the skin.
This treatment is not the same as dermabrasion and chemical peels. Rather, laser treatment enables Dr. Tantawi and his staff to control the depth of penetration in order to vaporize substantially thin and acne-affected layers and reveal healthy and undamaged skin below.
The Following Are The Two Types of Infrared Laser Wavelengths Used For This Treatment:
Nd: YAG laser – This high power laser thermally and selectively eradicating significant sebaceous glands to treat active acne.
Er: YAG laser – This laser gently removes micron-thin layers of the dermis in order for new skin to form instead.

Laser Acne Treatment FAQ
What is the Fotona® Acne & Acne Scars treatment?
The Fotona® laser treatment of active acne reduces acne inflammation by photoselective absorption and heating of overactive sebaceous glands. The power of an Nd:YAG laser is used to accelerate the healing process and to reduce the possibility of developing new acne inflammation.
The Fotona® laser treatment of acne scars is based on the precise and gentle skin resurfacing procedure where the Er:YAG laser is absorbed by the top micro-layers of the skin to vaporize scarred skin and stimulate the production of new collagen in the dermis.
Best clinical results are obtained by employing two complementary wavelengths of near-infrared lasers (Er:YAG and Nd:YAG – TwinLight Tx).
How does it work?
Active acne:A high power Nd:YAG laser is used to penetrate the skin deep enough to thermally and selectively destroy large sebaceous glands.
Acne scars:The Er:YAG laser is used to remove micron-thin layers of skin so that new skin can form in its place. Unlike chemical peels and dermabrasion, laser resurfacing allows to be easily controlled. The laser gently vaporizes the acne-scarred surface of the skin so that undamaged skin below is revealed.
