Laser hair removal, beyond long pulse technology. Safe and painless for everyone.

What is it?

The Fotona FRAC3 utilises a proprietary sub millisecond long pulse 1064nm laser to destroy hair follicles. This is an improvement beyond the existing effective long pulse Nd-YAG (VERSA3) with a clinical paper showing improved results and less pain. Read about it here.

This is a doctor only procedure as it involves a laser. Compared to IPL hair removal, laser hair removal is less painful and safe for all skin types. IPL can only be used for lighter skin types.

What can it be used for?

Excessive and unwanted hair over:

  • Facial areas such as the upper lip, inter-brow and jawline
  • Armpits
  • Arms and legs
  • Chest and back
  • Belly and pubic areas

How does it work?

The FRAC3 laser delivers permanent unwanted hair reduction by injuring the bulb, the bulge and the outer root sheath of the hair follicle.

A typical session of FRAC3 hair removal starts with shaving the desired treatment area, followed by multiple laser beams. Significant hair removal is achieved from the first session.

The laser permanently removes hair from the very first session. However, because different hairs are at different phases of growth at any one time, this procedure still needs repeat sessions to permanently remove all hairs. However, it does so in considerably less sessions than the IPL takes.

What is the FRAC3 difference?

  • Compared to waxing and epilation – laser hair removal offers more permanent results with less pain and side effects.
  • Compared to IPL hair removal: FRAC3 is safer for all skin types, relatively painless and takes fewer sessions.
  • Compared to existing long pulse Nd-YAG: new FRAC3 pulse duration is even more effective as seen in this study

FRAC3 achieves this by a 3-D laser effect, concentrating more energy on the hair follicle with minimal surrounding damage
