Facial Hair Reduction
FRAC3® Hair Removal
TimeWalker® Fotona4D® is an exceptional tool for performing facial 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 facial 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 facial 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. 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 facial hair reduction as well as many other aesthetic skin treatments:
The TimeWalker® Fotona4D® is a next-generation Er:YAG and Nd:YAG aesthetic laser dedicated to facial aesthetic treatments. With a unique combination of Fotona’s advanced laser technology and proprietary ASP-powered treatment modes, TimeWalker® is designed and optimized for non-invasive face lifting procedures such as Fotona4D®, SmoothEye® and LipLase™.
Fotona SP Line and XP Line lasers are ideal choices if you value speed for quick, high-quality aesthetic treatments without compromising efficacy. All Fotona SP and XP laser systems offer 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 vascular lesions and many other applications in aesthetics and dermatology. The SP line also includes Er:YAG for resurfacing treatments and more.
StarWalker – the highest performance single-pulse Q-Switched laser on the market. With four wavelengths in one system, the StarWalker provides all the tools you’ll need for effective removal of most types of pigmented and vascular lesions as well as complex, multi-colored tattoos.
Fotona's TimeWalker® Fotona4D® is equipped with ASP (Adaptive 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 ASP 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.
