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 red patchy areas of rosacea.
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 your scarred tissue.
Rosacea is a chronic skin condition which causes inflammation and redness. This condition is far from rare, affecting over three 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 to 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.
