Fotona is recognized as a world leader in medical laser technologies, working closely with top universities and research centers around the globe. With over 45 years of experience in laser technology, Fotona’s surgical lasers systems are leading the industry forward with new levels of excellence and unrivaled performance.
The latest generation of surgical lasers offers treatments that are faster, safer and less invasive. Laser solutions are available across a wide range of surgical fields, from minimally invasive aesthetic surgical treatments (laser-assisted lipolysis and hyperhidrosis) to clinical surgical procedures such as endovenous laser ablation.
High-Performance, Minimally Invasive Treatments
Fotona’s multi-application SP Line of lasers includes an Er:YAG laser (recognized as the optimal wavelength for extremely precise laser incision, with controlled thermal coagulation and bleeding effects) as well as a long-pulse Nd:YAG laser for transdermal aesthetic treatments.
Professionally designed handpieces, easy-to-select operating modes and advanced solutions for laser beam delivery further enhance the precision and performance of each Fotona laser system to ensure optimal clinical efficacy and unrivalled control during surgical treatments.
The Benefits of Fotona’s Surgical Lasers Include:
- Less downtime and quicker healing
- A haemostatic effect with simultaneous disinfection
- Minimally invasive procedures
- High-precision, tissue-selective treatments

F-22 Er:YAG scanner
The F-Runner is a computer-controlled scanning device, specially-developed to administer sharp fractional treatments unrivalled precision and accuracy. Its 250 µm diameter microchannels can reach up to 1100 µm deep into the skin and that over a 168 mm2 scan area.
S-22 Er:YAG scanner
The S-Runner features a 4mm spotsize and 16 cm2 area for conventional, full-field Er:YAG resurfacing. It features an ergonomic design and offers adjustable scan areas, shapes, patterns and 3 pulse deposition regimes to enhance treatment versatility, accuracy and precision over larger treatment areas.
S-11 Nd:YAG Scanner
The S-11 Nd:YAG scanner is intended for use in all Nd:YAG laser treatments. The S-11 scanner has a maximum scan area of 42cm2 covered with a 6 mm spotsize. The scanner also features a handle that can be adjusted by a range of up to 55°.
The PS01 PST handpiece offers a unique fractional Er:YAG treatment modality. Its innovative optical technology allows the laser fluence of each individual pixel to gradually diminish from the center to the outer edge of each pixel. Transitions from areas of high to low fractional intensity on the skin are therefore soft and gradual, offering a “soft fractional” effect. The PS01 is a variable PST (Pixel Screen Technology) handpiece that allows the number and size of pixels, as well as the overall spot size, to be varied. The handpiece can be set to provide 7, 10 and 12 mm treatment spot sizes. The PS01 fits in Fotona’s Titaniumhandpieces range, offering maximum durability and minimum weight.
The PS02 handpiece adds a minimally ablative, fractional treatment effect to Fotona’s 9 basic VSP Er:YAG ablative treatment regimes. The Er:YAG laser’s quality and clinical effect within each individual pixel remain identical to that of the basic Er:YAG beam. The PS02 thus avoids the adverse effects related to the invasiveness of purely ablative and fractional treatments. The handpiece provides 3, 5, 7, 10 and 12 mm treatment spot sizes. The PS02 is a fixed pixel-number and coverage handpiece that fits in Fotona’s Titanium range, featuring maximum durability with minimum weight.
The PS03 handpiece is a variable spot size handpiece, with fixed pixel-size, independent of the selected spot size. Spot sizes range from 2 to 7 mm with a fixed pixel structure within the laser spot; when the spot size is changed, the number of pixels inside the spot changes. The fluence in each pixel is set by selecting the fluence value on the host laser system display.
The R04-Ti is a lightweight and durable Titanium range handpiece designed to safely and effectively deliver Fotona’s VSP Er:YAG laser to the treatment area. This straight aesthetics-and-dermatology handpiece comes with 5 spacers to create 3-mm, 5-mm, 7-mm, 10-mm and 12-mm spot sizes.
The R09-2 Er:YAG handpiece is a multi-functional, collimated handpiece with a 4 mm spot size. The R09-3 model has a 5 mm spot size. This means that the surface area that can be treated is 7 mm2 greater than with the R09-2.
This dermatological, straight Er:YAG handpiece has a variable spot sizes from 2 to 7 mm. The R11 handpiece is also available as part of the Fidelis Aesthetic Upgrade package for the Fidelis dental laser systems. This package offers dental surgeries the opportunity to offer patients popular facial aesthetic procedures.
The R27 handpiece safely delivers Nd:YAG laser energy transmitted through optical fiber to the treatment site. The handpiece is intended for use with Fotona’s SP and XP line laser systems and any other Fotona laser systems that support QCW operation mode with 400 µm, 600 µm and 1000 µm fibers.
Slightly smaller and more maneuverable than the R27, the R27c handpiece safely and precisely delivers Nd:YAG laser energy transmitted through optical fiber to the treatment site. The handpiece is intended for use with Fotona’s SP and XP lines of laser systems and any other Fotona laser systems that support QCW operation mode with 200 µm, 300 µm, 400 µm, 600 µm and 1000 µm fibers.
With the wireless footswitch the laser treatment can be initiated within a 10-meter radius of the Fotona laser system, thereby avoiding an unnecessary tangle of cables on the operating room floor. The wireless footswitch is a perfect complement to your Fotona system, providing more freedom of movement during treatments.
TBH BF9, Suction unit
This suction unit efficiently absorbs gases, particles, viruses and bacteria, as well as unpleasant odors, during laser treatment. All these microorganisms are kept in the filter system and cannot be released back into the air.
