How does Fotona Nd:YAG treat active acne?
The Fotona Laser reduces active inflammation of acne by destroying the root oil gland at its optimal depth and significantly decreases the chances of new acne formation.

How long does the procedure take and is it painful?
The procedure itself takes only about 15-20 minutes, and patients may expect a tingling sensation on the skin. There is no downtime and normal activities can be resumed post treatment. Minimal sun exposure is advised.
How many sessions do I need?
The number of sessions required depends on the individual’s skin but generally at least 4-6 sessions about 1 month apart is recommended for active acne after which maintenance treatment can be done as required.
