What is Forte Laser Technology?
Available at our Roscoe Village location, Forte is a one-of-a-kind new device that provides several benefits due to the use of a high-speed diode laser. It works in combination with an intense cooling action for pain-free treatments. Using an advanced IPL pulse control system, it automatically calibrates and adjusts to your treatment and your skin type. The innovative software and hardware make it possible to integrate with Nd: YAG and Erbium lasers. The configurable laser design is pre-set for your skin type and treatment to reduce errors within the procedure parameters. The combined technology allows you to enjoy treatments that are more effective and safer.

Forte Laser for Skin Rejuvenation
Forte technology effectively performs skin resurfacing and wrinkle treatments due to the integration with the Er: YAG laser. The variations in pulse parameters allow the laser to remove layers of skin while causing minimal thermal damage. This also produces higher coagulation to stimulate collagen production. Expect 7-10 days of downtime.
How Many Treatments Do I Need?
There are several factors that can impact how many ablative skin resurfacing treatments you’ll require. After the first treatment, many patients see noticeable improvement in the appearance of their damaged skin. However, for optimal results, it’s best to come back for between 2 and 5 treatments.
