LASER Hair Removal
Fotona's high-performance Nd: YAG laser systems have introduced new standards of efficiency in hair reduction with the revolutionary FRAC3® technology. The treatment makes use of an innovative system that targets hair follicles effectively with a combination of homogeneous photothermolysis.
Safe for all skin types
Fotona’s Nd: YAG lasers provide a safe and effective hair reduction. It uses an unconventional pulse-control technology combined with a 3-dimensional treatment pattern (FRAC3®) and is safe to use on all skin types. The innovative system targets only the surface areas to be treated while leaving surrounding tissues unaffected by the laser.
What is FRAC3® hair removal?
The 1064nm Nd: YAG FRAC3® method is optimized as per the condition to provide high-intensity laser pulses in short times of less than 2ms. This sufficiently destroys most hair types - all while avoiding unnecessary damage to the epidermis. As the treatment involves relatively low absorption in melanin, they can be used for darker skin types safely and effectively.
Exclusive advantage of FRAC3® hair removal
Compared to the standard laser hair removal treatment concept, which requires medium-to-long laser pulse durations (LP, 15 – 50ms), Fotona’s short FRAC3® pulse, ideally 0.3 – 1.6ms long, exhibits the lowest hair damage thresholds- which makes the laser treatment more comfortable.
Prior to Treatment
At Advanced Laser Clinic, all patients are required to undergo consultation with our Laser Consultant prior to their first laser treatment.
At this appointment, we welcome all questions to advance your understanding of the treatment. There will be a consultation form to be completed about your health and medications to assess your eligibility for treatment.
Prior to the treatment, a patch test will be performed on your skin to check if the laser settings are suitable for you. If we notice no reactions for 24 hours after your patch test, we will start your laser treatment.
Keep your treated area away from sun exposure before the laser therapy as it is crucial to protect your skin from the sun for a minimum of two weeks before any treatment and afterward as well. The lasers provide a specific heat at a specific depth to deliver the desired result. But, this result can be exacerbated if it is given sun exposure and may cause unwanted side effects.
