Permanent Hair Reduction
FRAC3® Hair Removal
Fotona's high-performance Nd:YAG laser systems with FRAC3® technology have introduced new standards of efficiency in providing safe and effective hair reduction – using an innovative system that effectively targets hair follicles with a combination of selective and homogenous photothermolysis.
Safe for All Skin Types
Fotona’s Nd:YAG lasers incorporate revolutionary pulse-control technology and a proprietary three-dimensional treatment pattern (FRAC3®) to provide safe and effective hair reduction. Unlike other wavelengths, only Nd:YAG is safe to use on all skin types. Fotona’s innovative system effectively targets surface treatment areas while leaving surrounding tissues unaffected.
The success of hair reduction treatments depends largely on a patient’s skin and hair type, as well as the skills and treatment insight of the practitioner. Most patients can expect a significant reduction in unwanted hair, and any future hair growth will usually be thinner and lighter, and thus much less pronounced than before.
High-Performance Hair Reduction
Combined with the special high-performance S-11 scanner from Fotona, you can easily treat large areas such as the legs, back and chest quickly and efficiently, making laser treatments one of the most cost-effective solutions for long-term hair reduction. Fotona's high peak-power laser pulses provide the speed and efficiency needed to uniformly cover large scanning areas. Depending on the size of the treatment area, between three to five sessions, six to eight weeks apart will lead to a significant aesthetic and clinical result.
The following Nd:YAG laser systems from Fotona are ideal for permanent hair reduction as well as many other aesthetic skin treatments:
The Fotona XP Line of Nd:YAG lasers is an ideal choice if you value speed for quick, high-quality aesthetic treatments without compromising efficacy. At the heart of the XP Dynamis are high performance, non-ablative long-pulse Nd:YAG and surgical QCW* Nd:YAG lasers, which combine to offer an extremely wide aesthetics treatment range, including hair removal and many other applications in aesthetics and dermatology.
StarWalker – StarWalker’s VERSA3, FRAC3 and MaQX modalities provide effective tools for facial hair removal. In addition, StarWalker is also an industry-leading, ultra-performance tattoo and pigmented-lesions removal system thanks to its MaQX peak laser energy, four colors and proprietary FracTAT® procedure.
All Fotona Nd:YAG lasers are equipped with VSP (Variable Square Pulse) technology, enabling laser energy to penetrate deeply into the skin to create thermal effects without damaging the skin surface. Compared to conventional Nd:YAG technologies, Fotona’s proprietary VSP pulses create virtually instantaneous temperature increases that are limited to the targeted structures only; no unnecessary energy is deposited into the skin.
Handpieces & Accessories
Fotona's specially designed, innovative handpiece technology allows safe, precisely controlled and optimal delivery of laser pulses to the treatment area. Fotona also offers a Treatment Upgrade Kit for FRAC3® Hair Reduction, which provides Fotona laser users with the necessary knowledge, accessories and a complete set of tools to confidently and skillfully perform the procedure on their patients.
