The Medical Power of Light

What are the different types of scars?

Scars are caused by trauma or injury to the skin, and arise as the skin begins its natural healing process. There are many different types of scars and skin irregularities, including:

  • superficial textural changes

  • deep ice-pick scars

  • raised hypertrophic scars, which occur when the wound healing process creates excess scar tissue, such as with keloids

  • depressed atrophic scars, often associated with acne scarring

  • stretch marks

  • post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, when the skin is darker than normal; and

  • hypopigmentation, when the skin is lighter than normal

Lasers are ideally suited for the effective treatment of a wide range of scar tissues. Er:YAG skin resurfacing is used for gentle ablation of scar tissue and activation of collagen remodeling. Acne scars in particular respond well to Er:YAG treatments. For hypertrophic scars, clinical research conducted with the Nd:YAG wavelength show further improvement in the aesthetic appearance and overall tissue quality of a scar, including erythema, volume, pliability, etc.

The minimally invasive nature of laser scar-revision treatments means that they are well tolerated by patients, and faster recovery times allow the psychological impact of scar revision treatments to be realized much sooner by patients.

Harnessing the Medical Power of Light

Lasers are ideally suited for the effective treatment of a wide range of scar tissues. Er:YAG skin resurfacing is used for gentle ablation of scar tissue and activation of collagen remodeling.

For hypertrophic scars, clinical research conducted with the Nd:YAG wavelength show further improvement in the aesthetic appearance and overall tissue quality of a scar, including erythema, volume, pliability, etc.

A Synergistic Treatment Solution

With Fotona’s pioneering dual-wavelength scar-revision therapy, both nonablative Nd:YAG and fractional-ablative Er:YAG wavelengths are combined as part of a single comprehensive scar-treatment regimen, with immediate visible results that surpass that of traditional laser-based and conventional scar treatment techniques. Dual-wavelength scar treatment therapies provide a highly effective solution that not only addresses a scar’s aesthetic appearance but also helps to resolve complicating factors with the scar’s vascular feeding system.

The multi-application laser systems from Fotona (SP Dynamis) provides a single, uniquely capable and full-featured solution offering the power of the industry's highest performance Er:YAG and Nd:YAG lasers, ideal for scar-revision treatments and a wide range of other applications in aesthetics and dermatology.

Superior Performance

The SP Dynamis is equipped with a high performance Er:YAG laser that ablates skin more efficiently due to proprietary VSP (Variable Square Pulse) technology, which can be accurately tuned to varying “cold” ablation and non-ablative thermal ratios. Full customisability allows our medical practitioner to precisely attain the clinical outcomes you desire.

The Nd:YAG laser on the SP Dynamis perfectly complements the Er:YAG laser’s ablative action with the ability to penetrate deeply into the skin to create thermal effects without damaging the skin surface. Compared to conventional Nd:YAG technologies, Fotona’s proprietary VSP pulses create virtually instantaneous temperature increases that are limited to the targeted structures only. No unnecessary energy is deposited into the skin.


Its incredible that we can do scar revision without surgery or harsh alternatives. I’ve seen this treatment really re-build a client’s self confidence and its life changing.
