Acne Twinlight Treatment for all ages

Twinlight Treatment

Fotona offers a laser acne treatment protocol which extends a comprehensive solution to the acne problem. The precisely controlled Nd:YAG laser light penetrates the skin safely and effectively targets the overactive sebaceous glands and reduces the risk of development of new acne inflammation.

Fotona extends a complimentary laser treatment which is based on a precise and gentle skin resurfacing procedure for improving the appearance of acne scars. The procedure involves  the Er:YAG laser beam to be absorbed by the top micro-layers of the skin. This is done for vaporizing the scarred tissue and stimulating the production of new collagen in the dermis.

Fast results, Without Side-Effects

For the treatment of active acne, Fotona’s laser treatment uses photoselective absorption and controlled heating effects for reducing the acne inflammation. The high powered Nd:YAG laser safely penetrates the skin to an ideal depth which thermally destroys overactive sebaceous glands.In addition to these effects, the Nd:YAG acne laser treatment also advances the healing process and works on stimulating collagen remodeling which is an important step in the long-term treatment of acne.

Gentle & Effective Acne Scar Revision

For treating problematic acne scars, Fotona's Er:YAG laser wavelength is ideal for gentle ablative scar revision. In this treatment, the Er:YAG laser is safely and effectively penetrated as per the minimal depth required for light resurfacing of acne-scarred skin, which is helpful in improvement of  skin texture and tone. Unlike chemical peels and dermabrasion, resurfacing of the laser skin allows to control the penetration depth precisely. The laser vaporizes micron-thin layers of the acne-scarred surface of the skin gently and reveals healthy, undamaged skin present beneath. It is a fast, safe and simple procedure.

Prior to Treatment


Every person wishing to be treated at Advanced Laser Clinic will require a consultation with our Laser Consultant prior to their first treatment.

At this appointment, we welcome all questions to advance your understanding of the treatment. There will be a consultation form to be completed about your health and medications to asses your eligibility for treatment.

At our clinic, we perform a patch test on your skin to ensure that the laser settings are suitable for you. If there are no reactions 24 hours after your patch test, we can commence your laser treatment.

Before laser therapy, it is very important to keep your treated area completely away from sun exposure. Your skin needs to be protected from the sun for a minimum of two weeks before any treatment commences. This should be taken care of both before and after the treatment. In this treatment, the lasers provide specific heat at a specific depth in your tissue to produce a desired outcome. However, this outcome can be exacerbated if exposed to sun and may even cause unwanted side effects.

Before & After

  • Is Fotona Laser safe?
    Yes, as the laser treatment is a non-surgical and non-invasive process which makes use of multi-laser technology., it is clinically proven to be safe for all skin types. Apart from this, it has minimal to no downtime and produces satisfactory results.
  • Do you offer numbing for Laser hair removal?
    Unfortunately, topical numbing creams are not safe nor effective when doing Laser Hair Removal. The sensation you feel in treatment is not felt on the skin, but in the follicle of the hair. Unfortunately numbing cream cannot penetrate deep enough to minimise the discomfort that may be felt at the follicle. Please ensure that no occlusive creams are present in the treatment areas when undergoing laser hair removal treatments.
  • What areas are included in a Full Body Laser Hair Removal?
    A Full Body Laser Hair Removal includes every part of your body except the head.
  • Can I have my treatment when I am menstruating?
    Yes - you can still have laser hair removal treatment while on your period. We advise you to wear a tampon or menstrual cup if you would like to have the Brazilian area treated.
  • Can I have Laser hair removal if i have Epilepsy?
    Epilepsy sufferers are advised to consult with their doctor about having Laser Hair Removal. An individual will need to obtain medical clearance from their doctor prior to starting treatment. At Laser Clinics Australia, we also offer various options of protective eyewear to ensure your safety at all times during treatment.
  • What kind of results can I expect?
    A majority of patients who undergo this treatment see an 80-90% reduction in their hair growth. and the hair follicles that remain after treatment are damaged, meaning that they will produce a finer hair than before treatment. In the weeks following the laser treatment, you will be noticing less hair, slower-growing hair, and even hair falling out. There is also a reduction in hair bumps and ingrown hairs after your first treatment. It is important to apply moisturizers and cool compresses immediately after the treatment if you feel any discomfort in the treated area. Following the treatment, overall you should be able to see a loss of hair over the month. It is recommended to use sunscreen whenever you step out. Although there are some complications that may occur with the process of laser hair removal, as it is with any medical procedure, these are usually minor and rarely occur. Any possible effects of laser hair removal will be reviewed by your clinician during your consultation.
  • Pre & post care for laser hair removal treatments.
    - You are required to shave the entire area you wish to get treated prior to the day of your laser hair removal treatment. - Avoid using exfoliators such as alpha beta hydroxyl acid, alcohol toners or any other creams which might be irritating, for one-week before your laser hair removal treatment. - Do not apply any perfumes, deodorants or any type of makeup to the area to be treated on the day of your treatment. - Do not go for any artificial tanning such as tanning beds and spray tans within 2-3 weeks prior to your treatment. - After your hair removal treatment, you may experience the growth of hair for up to two weeks. However, this is only the treated hair that is being shed from the follicle. - Following your laser hair removal treatment, you will likely experience slight redness and swelling around the hair follicles and some mild discomfort, mostly similar to sunburn. Cool packs may be applied. - You may observe during and after your session the smell of burned hair. However, this is normal. - It is essential to avoid swimming pools and spas treated with chemicals or chlorine until the skin returns to its normal condition. - Until the skin returns to normal condition, you must not have any facials or peels on any treated facial areas. - If the underarm area is being treated, do not use deodorant for 24 to 48 hours. - Following the treatment, do not rub, or pick the area which is treated.
