Laser hair removal has been one of the most popular – if not the most popular – laser treatments for many, many years for men and women across a wide range of age groups. Unwanted hair is a common problem that can now be easily managed with the aesthetic tools that are available for the public. Traditional hair removal procedures use IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) or a diode, Nd:YAG laser, to destroy the hair pigments in hair follicles, eventually leading to the permanent loss of the hair from the root. The common challenge with traditional hair removal was the difficulty in treating people with darker skin tones. Fotona has found a way around that by devising a laser system that can treat all skin types. It also has less associated risks and higher efficacy rates in the removal of unwanted hair on the face and body.
Fotona’s Dynamis Nd:YAG laser uses their exclusive FRAC3 laser delivery system. This method of laser delivery uses a combination of selective and standardized photothermolysis. The longer wavelengths used with the pulse technology targets the hair follicles deeper than the conventional lasers because this can successfully deliver more laser light into the hair follicles with each repeated passing over the area. FRAC3 laser hair reduction is safe and effective in permanently reducing hair on the face and body without damaging the surrounding skin. Permanent hair reduction requires a series of treatments due to the different cycles of hair growth, but patients can expect a 10% to 25% hair reduction with each treatment, which is every 4 weeks for the face and every 6 to 8 weeks for treatments on the body.
The Nd:YAG laser system from Fotona successfully reduces hair permanently on the following areas: – Face – Chin – Chest – Arms – Underarms – Back – Legs – Bikini
The results from Fotona’s FRAC3 Nd:YAG laser for permanent hair reduction produces aesthetically pleasing results in just 6 sessions for most people. The delivery of the laser light is more efficient than the traditional methods of permanent hair reduction. The unprecedented safe delivery of pulse-control laser technology in darker skin tones positions Fotona’s permanent hair reduction program as one of the leading procedures in permanently reducing unwanted hair for all skin types. The risks associated with older methods of hair removal for darker skin tones include – skin irritation – pigmentation changes – scarring – blistering – burning – crusting – changes in skin texture – permanent blotchiness – more painful treatments
When considering laser hair-removal sessions, it is very important to consult with a reputable clinic that employs qualified technicians who understand the process of photoepilation on the varying degrees of skin tone classifications by phototype on the Fitzpatrick Scale. These classifications determine the amount of laser energy and the length of the pulses that can be safely delivered to the skin’s surface without causing any harm to the skin or surrounding tissue around the hair follicles. Most patients tolerate treatments very well, and the hair reduction results are usually apparent even after one session.
