The Fotona laser system is widely acclaimed for its versatility of laser treatments. In Toronto, Dr. Cory Torgerson’s Laser Clinic is one of the first centres to offer this incredible laser system and all its applications to patients. Its profile allows for uniform laser treatments with predictable, safe results and a wonderful spectrum of cosmetic laser procedure options and medical treatment modes for patients to choose from. Toronto laser clinic patients will be impressed with the wide range of treatment modes available that are minimally invasive, highly effective and safe with a short downtime afterwards. Fotona laser procedures are clinically proven to be appropriate for all skin types too. Laser patients that have been treated at our laser centre with the Fotana Laser system have a high rate of satisfaction, saying that procedures were very comfortable and that their laser results were excellent. Here are some of the specific Fotona laser treatments you will discover at our Toronto laser center.
Fotona 4D is a four-dimensional treatment that lifts the face, reducing wrinkles and tightening the skin. 4D laser treatment moves in 4 stages. The first is a laser treatment that helps tighten and plump up the overall face, targeting volume in the skin. The next step is a fractional laser treatment to target skin imperfections that can age the skin. This stage is called FRAC3 and helps reduce and remove dark spots, age spots, and red spots along with vascular imperfections. The third stage of the Fotona 4D Laser treatment is use of the Piano Mode. This stage specifically targets skin laxity to firm and tighten the face overall. The final stage is a polishing peel to remove dead skin cells and restore a bright and youthful complexion to the face. This laser treatment is unique in Toronto because part of the process actually happens intraorally using one of the Fotona handpieces. The rest of the laser procedure happens on the exterior of the face as per usual. Results can be seen immediately following treatment. Patients usually experience only some redness or swelling afterwards, but nothing harsh or that would impact their day-to-day activities.
HotSculpting is an innovative laser treatment that targets fat beneath the skin of the treatment area. The laser’s heat will essentially heat the fat cells, permanently destroying them – without damaging the skin above. Your lymphatic system will naturally process and flush away the cells. This causes the reduction of fat in the treated area and is the first benefit of HotSculpting. The second benefit of this Toronto laser treatment is the skin tightening that accompanies the fat loss. The laser heat tightens the fibres of collagen, contracting them to leave the skin more taut and firm. By combining these 2 procedures together, HotSculpting allows you to progress to your ideal shape much sooner than in the past with former technologies. This non-surgical liposuction method requires no downtime, and patients can resume their regular activities within the same hour. 4 treatments (sold at a packaged cost) spaced a week or so apart will achieve the best results.
Looking for an improvement in overall skin elasticity and skin tightness? The SmoothLiftin Introral Face Lifting laser treatment is ideal for just that! With noticeable results after only one single treatment, our patients have been raving about this procedure. The SmoothLiftin treatment is unique in that there is no pain, just a gentle heating of the skin intraorally! The mouth has to be kept open throughout the whole procedure, but the results are seen on the exterior of the face with a lifting and tightening of the nasolabial folds and wrinkles around the mouth zone. The SmoothLiftin intraoral treatment can be used on its own or in combination with the complete 4D laser procedure. Overall, it is recommended for patients to have 3 to 5 treatments each spaced 4 weeks apart, as the collagen is stimulated.
A breast lift without the surgery can actually now be achieved with the Fotona laser! This remarkable laser treatment targets the pectoral muscle, allowing for an instant breast lift that targets drooping breast skin or stretched, sagging breasts. The ultimate result of this laser treatment is a more flattering appearance without the surgery, resulting in highly satisfied patients! To discover if you are an ideal candidate for a breast lift, please contact our plastic surgery and laser centre in the heart of Toronto. The dramatic improvement in breast shape with this non-surgical laser treatment is highly worth it!
Laser hair removal popularity has grown over the years because both men and women have areas of unwanted hair. With the Fotona laser hair removal system, individuals of all skin types can safely and effectively rid themselves of hair and attain permanent results! With this particular laser treatment at our Toronto centre, you can expect your hair in the treated areas to be reduced by 10% to 25% each treatment. Your hair removal sessions should be booked 4 to 8 weeks apart. What makes the Fotona laser hair removal system so great is that it has an exclusive, patented laser-light delivery system called Avalanche FRAC3. This method successfully increases the absorption of light into every single hair follicle with each laser pulse. If you have been desiring a smoother appearance to save time and the hassle of getting rid of unwanted hair, this laser hair removal system is the way to go!
Acne is a common problem that has affected most of us at one point or another. With individualized Fotona laser treatments, both active acne and acne scars can be successfully dealt with. Through controlled heating, the laser treatment will reduce the inflammation caused by acne and target overactive oil production glands (sebaceous glands). Without any medication needed, the acne laser treatment will stimulate collagen and help combat acne – for the long term! The Fotona laser also effectively diminishes and reduces acne scars, gently resurfacing the area to improve skin texture and overall appearance. The acne scar laser treatment lifts off the layers of damaged, acne-scarred skin, allowing the healthy skin underneath to be revealed. Depending on the severity of the scars, patients may have to return for a few treatments spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart. The recovery period after each treatment is short, and minimal downtime is required. Other than some redness and swelling, most patients return to their normal routine and are simply careful to apply sunscreen daily to protect the fresh skin and avoid direct sunlight.
Lesions, moles, and spots affect most of us. In days gone by, these skin irregularities needed to be addressed with excision, but treatments have changed all that. Nowadays, laser treatments are an effective solution to removing moles and lesions from the skin’s surface, leaving a smoother surface behind. Healing the treated area takes only a few days and requires no change in your day-to-day routine. If you are searching for the best way to remove lesions (i.e. pigmented, vascular, or benign), then a Toronto laser treatment session at our downtown laser clinic may be perfect for you!
Warts can be bothersome and painful and can spread to other areas of the body. Laser treatments with the Fotona are a successful way to eradicate warts and stop the spread of the virus. The laser’s heat destroys the wart often in a single treatment. If you are looking for a wart removal solution, please contact our Toronto laser clinic for details and to set up an appointment with our registered nurse.
A laser peel is a fantastic way to address surface skin concerns such as age spots, pigmentation issues, fine lines, and sun damage. This type of laser treatment gently targets the outermost layer of the skin working to improve the texture and overall appearance of the face and skin. A laser peel can be done as a single laser treatment or as a package of a few treatments spaced a few weeks apart. It can also be included as part of the 4D laser treatment package. The recovery time needed is minimal. Most patients look as though they have a sunburn for a few days following the treatment. Hydrating the skin during the healing process is important, as is avoiding direct sunlight. Once the redness has subsided, patients will note a smoother and more youthful texture to their skin.
A nail infection could be caused by a myriad of common sources – a nail spa, the local gym, a swimming pool, or a public shower all could leave someone with a nail infection, medically known as onchomycosis. This occurs when fungus, certain moulds, or yeast species attack the nail or tissue around the nail. Affecting up to 14% of the population, nail infections can be painful and bothersome. While medications can provide effective treatments, some of the side effects of these drugs can disrupt an individual’s life. That’s where the Fotana laser treatment comes in. This new and revolutionary laser treatment is simple, totally safe, and absolutely effective. The laser light and heat destroy the fungi that are causing the infection. One treatment takes only about 45 minutes, and some people will see clear results afterwards. However, successful treatment usually requires 3 to 4 treatments as well as the time it takes for your body to grow an entirely new, clear nail. Fotona statistics show that after 3 months of nail infection laser treatments, 95% of clients were infection-free! If you are looking for a Toronto laser clinic to help you deal with thick, brittle, discoloured nails caused by nail fungus, the Fotona treatment we offer may be the perfect fit for you!
With the Fotona laser advanced technology, spider veins and varicose veins can be safely treated and significantly improved. Pulses of laser light are delivered directly into the vein area, and these pulses cause the vein to collapse, restoring a more natural, smooth look to the skin. It is this visually appealing result that so many patients are excited about when exploring spider vein and varicose vein treatments. If you would like to learn more information or talk about the cost of laser treatments in Toronto, please contact our Yorkville laser centre.
Wrinkles are a fact of life for all of us, and the good news is that there are now plenty of non-surgical options to treat wrinkles and fine lines without the need for surgery. Laser treatments for wrinkles can range from gentle treatments with minimal downtime such as the SmoothLiftin Intraoral Laser Treatment to more ablative laser and fractioned treatments in which the laser therapy is more intense, but highly effective.
Many patients are now familiar with Botox treatments for excessive sweating, but they may not realize that laser therapy can also treat underarm sweating! The Fotona laser treatment can pinpoint, heat, and destroy the overactive sweat glands without damaging any of the surrounding skin and tissue. In various studies, a single hyperhidrosis laser treatment was consistently found to dramatically reduce underarm sweating. This is significant news for anyone who constantly battles wet underarms and staining of clothes. The treatment is simple, and as soon as the laser session is over, patients can go home or back to work without any schedule disruption.
A revolutionary and innovative laser treatment for snoring has finally arrived! This Toronto laser treatment can reduce snoring by up to 50%, which will have a significant impact on the health and overall quality of life for both the snorer and their loved ones. CPAP systems used to be one of the only snoring solutions, but many found them uncomfortable. Surgical options were invasive and required downtime. With the Fotona NightLase snoring treatment, laser light and heat work together to tighten the airway tissues, opening up the airway and allowing for a reduction in snoring. The snoring laser treatments usually are scheduled 3 times over the course of 2 months. The treatments are short and comfortable in duration (only about 15 minutes) and require absolutely no downtime. This leading-edge laser technology is Toronto’s best solution for snoring. Patients will sleep easier and feel better, positively affecting one’s overall health!
Our delicate skin is easily damaged throughout our lifetime with some of those cuts and scrapes inevitably leaving a telltale scar behind. Scar treatment and scar revision therapy with a laser treatment is the best way to treat scars. The laser treatment will use light energy that heats the scarred area, stimulating collagen production and resurfacing the skin. The damaged skin is lifted away, revealing smoother skin after the laser treatments. Larger, more dramatic scars may need several Fotona laser procedures in order to obtain optimal results.
Stretch marks most widely affect females, and solutions for stretch marks are hard to find. However, with the Fotona laser’s breakthrough technology, stretch marks can be significantly improved and even erased, depending on the size and location. To see if you are a great candidate for stretch mark removal with the Fotona laser treatment, please contact our Toronto laser centre, and we will book you a complimentary consultation.
Fractional skin resurfacing is a type of Fotona laser treatment that targets microscopic areas of the skin. The laser light pulses heat columns of skin without damaging untreated areas. The results are a marked improvement of fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage, age spots, and other pigment irregularities and skin concerns that occur as we age. Fractional skin-resurfacing methods are nice because there is not a lot of bleeding and scabbing, as with laser treatments of the past.
Non-ablative laser treatments allow for skin rejuvenation, stimulating collagen and tightening the skin with less recovery time and less damage to the skin and tissues. The laser light delivers pulses of energy and heat to the skin to improve skin tone and your complexion. The Fotona laser technology allows for numerous non-ablative skin treatments to repair and correct skin irregularities and concerns.
CO2 laser and erbium laser are the best-known ablative laser treatments that can also produce the best clinical results. The Fotona laser system offers erbium laser treatments that will target the visible signs of aging. It will require 3 to 5 days of downtime, but the results are superior to other lasers. Overall, ablative laser treatments vaporize the skin’s outermost layer. As the treated skin heals, it restructures, leaving behind a smoother, more youthful texture and tone as well as encouraged collagen production.
Within the Fotona laser treatment system, there is the Dynamis range of applications. There are 5 different systems, called SP Dynamis, SP Spectro, XS Dynamis, XP Spectro, and XP Dynamis. They offer Toronto laser patients the widest range of applications and customized choice of any laser system we know of in the market today. The Dynamis line targets several key treatment areas, giving incredible non-surgical options for cosmetic laser improvements and solutions for medical concerns.

Hyperhidrosis, which is overactive sweating, can also be effectively treated with the Dynamis laser applications, along with pockets of stubborn fat or areas that have loose skin or crepiness of the skin tissue.

The Fotona laser system combines Er:YAG with Nd:YAG, so treatment modes can range from ablative to non-ablative, and these laser treatments are safe for all skin types. When working in tandem, these combined laser technologies minimize patient complications, providing fantastic clinical results and shorter recovery times for clients of the Toronto Laser Centre.
The Versa LP handpiece on the Fotona laser system has set a high standard for accuracy, efficacy, and safety in laser treatments. The medical side of the Versa Nd:YAG pulse effectively targets vascular and benign lesions, warts, active acne, and veins (such as spider veins or varicose veins). With just a few treatments, these medical conditions can be targeted and appropriately dealt with, making our Toronto patients very happy!
Fotona’s amazing laser technology allows for great variety in the types of medical treatments and cosmetic laser procedures that you can choose from. The FRAC3 offers skin treatments like hair removal and fractional skin tightening. The concept behind FRAC3 is to deliver short pulses of laser power combined with Nd:YAG laser pulses with high-peak power density. These produce a three-dimensional fractional pattern on the epidermis and the dermis to target multiple skin imperfections.
Piano Mode on the Fotona laser system extends the Nd:YAG pulse durations. This means that laser procedures become more efficient and fast with reduced healing times. Piano Mode is the perfect laser modality for laser lipolysis, body-sculpting treatments, the reduction of varicose veins, and even skin tightening. Even people in Toronto who suffer from excessive sweating, called hyperhidrosis, can benefit from Piano Mode dermis and epidermis treatments to combat this condition.
Smooth Mode on the Fotona Laser offers offers non-invasive, non-ablative laser treatments that are thermal only. Toronto Laser patients who choose this option will not experience any bleeding of the treated area and will experience no pain and will not need any form of anesthesia. In Smooth Mode, the unique pulse sequence allows controlled and precise heating and temperature deposits. New collagen will be stimulated without any damage to the epidermis layer. The skin tightening effects of this laser treatment means improvement of skin elasticity on the treated area.
