Reduce the Appearance of Acne & Rosacea
It can be hard to feel confident with blemished, acne-prone, or discoloured skin. At Zulu Medical Cosmetics, we want to help you radiate confidence and beauty from the inside out. Thanks to our Fotona laser treatments, we can treat breakouts, reduce acne scars, and address patchy red areas of rosacea.
What Is Fotona Laser Treatment?
The Fotona laser treatment uses a precise laser to improve skin texture, discolouration, and overall look. Using specialized Nd:YAG and Er:YAG laser technology, the Fotona laser penetrates your skin to target the cause of acne and reduce acne scars and rosacea.
Compared to other treatment methods, the Fotona laser provides fast results with little to no side effects.
Acne & Acne Scar Laser Treatment
Fotona works to reduce the inflammation of active acne breakouts, stimulate healing, and reduce the risk of future breakouts. The ultra-precise laser light penetrates the skin, targeting the overactive sebaceous glands responsible for the inflammation.
With the problematic glands destroyed through thermal energy, Fotona then promotes collagen remodelling, which is an important step in the long-term treatment of acne.
Fotona offers a higher level of depth precision than other methods, like chemical peels and dermabrasion. This degree of control allows us to safely provide the penetration necessary to improve acne-scarred tissue and stimulate collagen production in the skin.
The procedure is a fast and simple way to reveal the healthy and undamaged skin below scarred tissue.
Rosacea Laser Treatment
Rosacea is a chronic skin condition that causes inflammation and redness. This condition is far from rare, affecting over 3 million Canadians, according to the Canadian Dermatology Association.
Rosacea most often appears as redness or blushing on the cheeks and nose. However, symptoms may include:
- Gritty sensation in the eyes
- Bloodshot eyes
- Small pus-filled pimples
- Enlarged blood vessels
- Skin appearing rough or bumpy
The Fotona laser helps reduce the redness and inflammation that accompanies rosacea. Using the long pulse setting, we can target the discolouration in your skin, coagulating the blood vessels in the area to reduce the size and intensity of the affected areas.

Unlike other treatment methods, there is little to no healing time depending on your treatment. In fact, Fotona lasers actually help the healing process by stimulating collagen production.
For acne scar treatment, there may be a healing period of a few days, depending on how deep your scars are. To help your skin heal, keep it clean and moisturized and avoid wearing makeup.
