What is the Fotona Laser Technology you ask?

Fotona continuously chooses perfection to meet the demands of a highly demanding marketplace.


Sleep Apnea – Nightlase

Sleep apnea – defined as pauses in breathing or shallow breathing during sleep. This is normally caused by prolapse of the soft pallet tissue inside the mouth and esophageal opening. Many American suffer from this condition. Some people sleep with bulky CPAP machines which makes it hard for their significant others to sleep over the loud noises of the machine. Without treatment sleep apnea may increase the risk of heart attack, stroke, diabetes, heart failure, obesity and other conditions.

 

Treatment – our Fotona laser has a Nightlase procedure and with 3-4 treatments can dramatically improve the air passage way making sleep apnea lessen or disappear. The laser is fired into the mouth in many different areas and the heat tightens and lifts the soft pallet. This is a painless treatment that can be done within 15-30 minutes a session. Sometimes up-keep is needed once a year. Most of our patients have found relief from this treatment.

Pigmented Lesions

 

Pigmented lesions are extremely common and occur in almost everybody. Pigmented lesions are basically dark spots on the skin where there is a higher concentration of melanin, which is the substance that gives the skin its coloring. Some lesions are flat, while others can be raised. They’re usually nothing more than a cosmetic concern and appear as moles, sun spots and freckles. With Fotona’s Q-switched technology, instead of heat, laser light is transformed into photoacoustic waves which mechanically break apart unwanted particles, such as pigments, so that the body’s own immune system can remove them.

Fine Lines & More

 

As we grow older, photoaging can cause our skin to create imperfections. These can include deep wrinkles, fine lines, moles and more. We can treat these imperfections by utilizing laser technology designed to combat the signs of aging. The Fotona’s 4D laser light can penetrate deeper into the skin, selectively targeting your deepest skin structures like deep-lying veins and hair follicles. Our treatment requires no downtime, can be done during a lunch break from work, and shows no signs of treatment.
