Skin Spectrum patients have a proven option for improving skin's tone — and it doesn't require an incision. It's called Fotona, and it's an incredible solution for skin tightening for our Phoenix and Tucson‐area patients. Fotona is especially effective at improving the lower face, including the jawline. For many women and men, this area of the face is one of the first to show its age.

How does Fotona work?
Fotona is a laser device that uses higher wavelengths than other lasers to target the deeper layers of skin, creating more significant and lasting results. While Fotona excels at jawline rejuvenation, it's also an excellent option for treating the following concerns:
- Loose neck skin
- Loss of definition in the chin
- Laxity on other areas of the body, such as the knees and arms
During your consultation, you and Dr. Comstock, Dr. Pai, or Nicole James, PAC discuss each of your options. In some cases, a 2‐pronged approach, such as combining Fotona with KYBELLA®, may provide more significant results.
Your treatment with Fotona is relatively brief and quite comfortable. Your provider moves the laser handpiece over your skin, delivering powerful pulses of energy. Although most patients report a sensation of heat, the procedure isn't painful.
The heat created by Fotona stimulates your skin to contract and produce more of its own collagen, leading to improved definition and youthful‐looking tightness. You should expect your appointment to last for about 20 to 40 minutes.
What can I expect after treatment?
Fotona doesn't require any downtime, and you can comfortably return to your usual activities as soon as you'd like. Keep in mind that the results of your treatment aren't instant. Expect them to take several weeks to appear as collagen development occurs. If the collagen texturizing step is added, one may have a pink flush to the skin for a few hours after this 4th step.
How long will my results last?
The results of your Fotona treatment can last for several months and even longer with occasional touch‐up treatments. Fotona simply helps turn the clock back.
