The most effective and pain-free solution to laser hair removal
Laser hair removal as an efficient technique to get rid of unwanted hair has been around for more than a decade. However, the convenience and efficacy of this technique also comes with its set of cons, the likes of which include their incongruity with darker skin tones, semi-permanently damaging the hair follicle to minimise their growth, and so on. While it comes with its associated cons, laser hair removal is actually the most popular methods of hair removal opted by those who want a long-term solution for it. It offers a relatively painless solution to unwanted hair growth and also treats the problems of ingrown hair and hyperpigmentation. There are many different types of laser hair removal such as IPL (Intense Pulsed Light machine), Alexandrites, Nd:YAGs, or Diodes. Each of them come with their set of pros and cons but the one with the highest rate of efficacy is the Fotona laser hair removal. Here’s everything you need to know about the most effective and pain-free solution to laser hair removal.
What is the Fotona?
Fotona is a type of laser hair removal that uses the Nd:YAG laser. The delivery of this particular laser light is more efficient than the other traditional methods of hair reduction via laser. It’s popularity is a result of its multiple benefits as well as the fact that it works on all skin types as opposed to normal methods of laser hair removal. Sufficient quantities of high intensity laser pulses are delivered in a short period of time (ranging from a few microseconds to a few seconds), to ensure results with minimal damage to the outermost layer of the skin, the epidermis. Due to the relatively low absorption in melanin, Nd:YAG laser treatments can be used safely and effectively even on darker skin tones.
How does it work?
Fotona’s Dynamis Nd:YAG laser uses their exclusive FRAC3® laser delivery system. This method of laser delivery uses an interpolation of selective and standardised photothermolysis. The FRAC3® pulse produces a three-dimensional fractional pattern within the epidermis and dermis. The longer wavelengths used in the pulse technology targets the hair follicles deeper than the conventional lasers because this can successfully and efficiently deliver more laser light into the hair follicles with each repeated passing over the area. Laser parameters can be adjusted according to the patient’s skin type and hair growth. The laser works to heat the target structure and the heat is delivered in pulses. The break between the pulses allows the skin to cool down and minimise damage from overheating. This also prevents the risk of burning or pigmentation in the surrounding areas.
Results and downtime
The results begin to be visible after the first session but we recommend taking the recommended 6-12 sessions depending on the area of the body for full and lasting results. Mild redness after the first session is a normal occurrence and usually resolves within a couple of hours.
What are the benefits?
It works on all skin types and has less associated risks and a higher efficacy rate in the removal of unwanted body hair. In light of this, let’s explore some of its benefits:
- Less invasive and safe for removing body hair without damaging surrounding areas
- Greater precision in tissue selectivity
- Shorter downtime
- Uniform treatment without energy loss or hot spots
- Greater comfort
- Superior results
- Fast and convenient treatment
- No ingrown hair or irritated skin post treatment
- Ideal for darker skin tones
Fotona laser hair removal is a completely safe and effective method of laser hair removal as compared to the traditional devices. However, like most other in-clinic body treatments, when considering laser hair removal, it is very important to consult a reputable clinic that employs experienced and professional technicians to ensure best results.
