Top IncontiLase® FAQ
How do the Fotona SMOOTH® treatments work?

Are there any age-limitations for the treatments?
The treatments are recommended for adult women of all ages. The effectiveness of the treatment may be reduced with advanced age due to the decreased capacity of the body’s natural regeneration process, which is the mechanism behind the Fotona SMOOTH® procedures.
