Revitalize Your Skin at the Dentist: 4 Amazing Benefits of Fotona Laser Treatment

Did you know that you can revitalize your skin at the dentist? It’s true! The Advanced Smile Professionals at Great Lakes have provided exceptional dental care for years, and now we offer laser skin rejuvenation to reduce the appearance of wrinkles with Fotona laser treatment. 

We understand that looking and feeling your best requires state-of-the-art solutions that address a wide variety of age-related wellness issues, such as aging skin, so we offer more than just dental care. In fact, we serve as the laser skin treatment authority in the Mentor area.

Fotona uses laser technology that has revolutionized dental and cosmetic care.

Fotona Revitalizes Aging Skin…

Youthful-looking skin is easy when we are young – our bodies shed skin cells regularly, so there is always a layer of fresh new cells at the surface of our skin. As we get older, though, the process of shedding dead skin cells slows down; this means old and dead skin cells remain at the surface to make our skin look dull and tired. What’s more, exposure to the sun, toxins, and other environmental problems damages our skin to cause premature aging. Other issues, such as acne, scarring, and unwanted hair also detract from our aesthetic appeal. Fortunately, undergoing anti-aging treatment with Fotona laser treatment at Great Lakes Dental can help revitalize dull, aging skin and provide skin tightening treatment for more youthful skin.

… and More

Fotona laser treatments can also reduce the appearance of acne, scarring, and unwanted hair.

Fotona for Acne

Acne often develops as the result of overactive sebaceous glands, which produce oils that can clog pores. Severe or untreated acne can even cause long-lasting scars. Fotona facial laser treatments heat up the overactive glands to reduce the overproduction of oils. The treatments can also improve healing from acne, thereby reducing the risk of acne scars.

Fotona to Reduce the Appearance of Scars

Scars are part of the natural healing process, but scars can sometimes cause cosmetic issues or even discomfort as the scar tissue stretches nearby skin. While some scars are subtle, others can be raised, recessed, or a different color than the surrounding skin. Scars become recessed as the result of hollow areas within the scar tissue or inadequate healing. Fotona stimulates the production of skin cells to fill in the hollow areas and restarts the healing process. 

Sometimes scar tissue continues to develop even after skin has healed, and this causes raised scars. We use Fotona to remove the excess scar tissue. 

Fotona removes unwanted hair

The Fotona device emits pulses of laser light that move down the shaft of the hair to the follicle, where the laser light energy damages the follicle enough to prevent hair from growing out of it. Fotona provides exceptional laser hair removal conveniently and effectively.

Enjoy these 4 Amazing Benefits of Fotona Laser Treatment 

1. Fotona combines two separate wavelengths into one treatment

Light travels in waves. Scientists measure these waves in wavelengths. Different wavelengths produce different colors of light. Specific wavelengths cause therapeutic changes within the human body. Some wavelengths barely penetrate the superficial layers of skin, while other wavelengths pass into the deeper layers of your skin.

Fotona combines two separate wavelengths into a single treatment. One laser focuses on the superficial layers, while the other laser penetrates into deeper layers. This dual-action laser treatment provides considerably more precise and accurate control during the treatment than do chemical peels, dermabrasion, and other more traditional skin treatments. 

2. Little to no preparation or downtime

No preparation is needed before your laser treatment appointment. You can return to your normal routine immediately after undergoing Fotona laser treatments. 

3. Wide range of uses

We use Fotona laser treatments to address a wide range of cosmetic issues, including:
