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.
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/SHR takes.
Permanent Results in Fewer Sessions
Safe Treatment Done by Doctors
Suitable for All Skin Types
How many sessions are needed?
Each unique patient requires a different treatment protocol, related to their skin and hair type. Results are typically seen from the first session but can take 3 to 6 sessions to show optimal and semi-permanent results.
Is hair removal laser painful?
This laser beams give off a deep warming sensation and is very tolerable. We use the Zimmer air cooler technology to maximise comfort. Numbing cream can be used for those who are worried about pain.
Is there any downtime?
It causes minimal to no downtime depending on your skin type and allows for immediate use of makeup and return to normal activities.
How does it compare to other hair removal treatments?
When compared to waxing and epilation: it is much more effective, safe and permanent. When compared to IPL hair removal: it is generally safer for all skin types, relatively painless and takes fewer sessions.
