Two laser technologies in one advanced system: Er:YAG and Nd:YAG
At the heart of Dynamis laser systems are two lasers with complementary wavelengths: Nd:YAG with the most homogeneous penetration for effective deep thermal treatments, and Er:YAG with the highest absorption for ablative and non-ablative superficial treatments.
Fotona VSP technology enables variable pulse durations (from microseconds to longer than one second) to optimize the effect of the laser on the tissue.
Both laser sources feature Fotona’s proprietary VSP (Variable Square Pulse) technology that enables an unprecedented range of treatment modes, from extremely short, microsecond pulses for intense targeting of selected areas, to very long, sub-second-to-second pulses for gentler bulk tissue treatments.
Er:YAG And Nd:YAG Laser Combination
The Dynamis’ VSP (Variable Square Pulse) Er:YAG laser inherently ablates skin more precisely than other laser technologies. Er:YAG energy is highly absorbed in water — the main target chromophore for skin resurfacing — and can thus vaporize skin with micron–precision and very little thermal conduction. This keeps undesired effects such as hypopigmentation and persistent erythema, as well as recovery time, to a minimum. The VSP Er:YAG laser in Dynamis systems can be accurately tuned from varying “cold” and “hot” ablative to non–ablative thermal ratios. Full customizability allows you to precisely attain the clinical outcomes your patients desire.
The Nd:YAG laser perfectly complements the Er:YAG laser’s ablative action with its ability to penetrate deeply into the skin to create thermal effects without damaging the skin surface. Its homogeneous absorption in the skin and low absorption in melanin allow it to be safely used in all skin types. Compared to conventional technologies, the VSP Nd:YAG pulses of Dynamis lasers create virtually instantaneous FRAC3® temperature increases, limited to the targeted structures only.
Non-invasive laser face lifting
Fotona4D® is a series of synergistic, non-invasive laser treatments of both the exterior facial and interior oral cavity, enabling full-thickness contraction of collagen for persistent tightening and volumization without injectables. With two laser wavelengths (Er:YAG and Nd:YAG) and 4 treatment modes, anti-aging is comprehensively approached from 4 different levels, working on deeper, medial and superficial connective structures of the skin, as well as targeting imperfections.
The four "dimensions" of Fotona4D® refer to four distinct treatments with Fotona’s SP Dynamis or SP Spectro systems: SmoothLiftinTM, FRAC3®, PIANO® and SupErficialTM, all harnessed in concert to combat facial aging, with little or no downtime or anesthesia, and that can be performed all year-round.
A revolutionary non-ablative Er:YAG intraoral treatment for controlled and gentle “bulk-heating” to stimulate collagen contraction. In addition to an immediate effect resulting in the shrinkage of collagen fibers, the initiation of new collagen generation occurs. The effects result in an overall improvement of tightness and elasticity in the treated tissue as well as a plumping effect to the nasolabial folds from the inside, much like a filler.
A self-induced, fractional effect of the Nd:YAG laser and a specific pulse structure that generates tiny regional spikes of high temperature. This nonablative modality enables the treatment of specific, deeper imperfections to complement the effect of the intraoral treatment, as well as restore youthful texture.
A unique, ultra-long Nd:YAG pulse mode for the third stage of Fotona4D®. The laser causes bulk tissue heating safely and rapidly, from the outside in, by concentrating energy delivery subcutaneously. The PIANO® pulse is in the superextended seconds regime mode, with a brushing technique for completing the full-thickness bulk heating with an overall synergistic tightening effect.
A light cold Er:YAG ablation that gives a pearl finish to the skin. SupErficialTM additionally improves the appearance of the skin and reduces imperfections by using propriety VSP technology, enabling the operator to easily adjust the laser to an extremely controlled light peel, without thermal effects, for a no-down time, precise treatment.
Snoring and Apnea Treatment
NightLase® Treatment is a patented, fast, non-invasive and friendly way of increasing the quality of a patient's sleep. NightLase® lessens the effects of sleep apnea and decreases the amplitude of snoring through the use of gentle, superficial Er:YAG laser light. No anesthesia is used in this treatment.
During NightLase® treatment laser light heats the tissue, causing tightening of the tissue which leads to an attenuation of the sound of the patients snoring and a lessening of the effects of sleep apnea.
The procedure is performed in two simple steps:
Step 1: PRECONDITIONING
The laser light preheats the tissue.
Step 2: TISSUE STRENGTHENING
Laser light strengthens the tissue.
Laser Vaginal Tightening
IntimaLase® is a patent-pending, innovative and unique non-invasive Er:YAG laser therapy. It is based on incisionless, non-ablative photothermal tightening of the vaginal canal. Preliminary clinical studies show that it is an efficient, easy-to-use, quick and safe procedure.
The indication for IntimaLase® is vaginal relaxation syndrome, which is the loss of the optimum structural form of the vagina. This process is generally associated with overstretching of the vaginal canal during childbirth as well as with natural aging.
The IntimaLase® treatment is based on laser-induced thermal effects in the vaginal tissue, stimulating collagen remodeling and the synthesis of new collagen fibers. The final result of collagen neogenesis and remodeling is tightening of the vaginal canal. The laser used in IntimaLase® clinical trials is a 2940 nm Er:YAG with built-in proprietary technology solutions that enable delivery of specially composed laser energy packages to the vaginal mucosa tissue and to collagen-rich endopelvic fascia.
Stress urinary incontinence laser treatment
IncontiLase® is an innovative and unique, patent-pending, non-invasive Er:YAG laser therapy for incontinence. It is based on non-ablative photothermal tension and shrinkage of the urethral and anterior bladder wall region. The indications for IncontiLase® therapy are mild and moderate stress and mixed urinary incontinence (SUI). Preliminary clinical studies show that it is an efficient, easy to perform and safe procedure.
The IncontiLase® treatment is based on precisely controlled laser-induced thermal effects in the mucosa tissue in the region of the vestibule and urethral orifice, as well as in the area along the anterior vaginal wall. The laser used in IntimaLase clinical trials is a 2940 nm Er:YAG, with builtin proprietary technology solutions that enable delivery of specially composed laser energy packages to the vaginal mucosa tissue and to collagen-rich endopelvic fascia. Studies have shown that the resulting collagen neogenesis and remodeling leads to the shrinking and tightening of irradiated tissues, and the return of normal continence function.
