The Fotona laser (3D FRAC mode protocol) provides safe, fast and effective hair removal treatment. This permanent hair removal laser technology features its first-of-its-kind pulse-control technology for those who want hair reduction.
The Fotona Nd: YAG’s laser energy is safe to use on all skin types. It doesn’t damage the surrounding areas. The high peak-power laser pulses uniformly cover large scanning areas.
In essence, the successful outcomes of hair removal sessions rely mostly on a patient’s skin, hormonal balance, hair type and growth patterns. The clinician’s treatment insights and expertise are equally important too.
The Fotona laser delivers permanent hair removal treatment. A typical Fotona laser hair removal session begins with shaving the targeted treatment site. Next, the medical specialist cleans the treatment area.
If the body part is sensitive, a numbing cooling gel is applied to numb the area. Then, the doctor will beam multiple lasers on the treated areas.
The hair’s pigment will absorb the laser energy where heat conversion occurs. The laser light passes from the outer layer to the skin’s surface and destroys the hair follicles. The follicles are located just below the skin. They function to generate new hair strands.
The permanent hair removal laser parameters and settings can be adjusted quickly and easily. The settings are based on your skin type, hair thickness, hair color and the depth of hair follicles.
This treatment is also a fast laser hair removal procedure. Treatment for smaller areas can be done in just a few minutes. Meanwhile, laser hair removal in a large area can take up to one hour or more.
You will be able to see substantial hair removal from the first session where hair follicles treated in the active growth stage would fall out in around 2-3 weeks.
However, different hair types grow in different phases at any one time. This condition means you should come for repeat sessions to remove all hair permanently. The doctors will consult and work out a customized permanent hair removal laser treatment plan tailored to your needs.
Generally, patients will see high-quality aesthetic and clinical results between 3-5 sessions and 3-4 weeks apart. Nevertheless, it also depends on the size of the treatment area.
Any future hair growth will usually be thinner and lighter. Overall, you can see a 20-30% decrease in hair growth with each treatment.
The Fotona hair removal laser can be used on almost any part of the body. Hence, you don’t have to waste time and trouble waxing, plucking or shaving unwanted hair areas anymore.
The advantages with this permanent laser hair removal treatment are:
The advantage of the Fotona laser hair removal is it removes hair thoroughly. This laser will penetrate the deep layer of the dermis (the inner layer of the two main layers of the skin) and the subcutaneous fat tissue.
It acts on the deep hair follicles in different parts (suitable for larger and smaller areas) to effectively remove the deep hair in any part of the human body.
It doesn’t damage the epidermis (the outermost layer of skin) and the skin. It also doesn’t affect the perspiration function, which can effectively protect the skin from being damaged by heat.
The pigmentation after hair removal is very close to our skin. After laser hair removal treatments, your skin may appear slightly discolored. This is a temporary side effect and usually goes away on its own within a week or so.
Laser hair removal treatment is popular among women. The common areas for unwanted hair removal are the upper lip, chin, shoulders, back, neck and bikini area.
Other areas (for men and women) with excessive and unwanted hair over:
Your dermatologist will first need to know your skin type. The expert will use a skin classification system to do this. Therefore, the best laser setting/wavelength can be used to produce the best results.
During this permanent hair removal laser treatment, some patients experience nothing, while some experience sunburn-like stinging. If you have scarring, inform your doctors quickly.
This is because the settings can be adjusted on the laser accordingly to minimize the risks. There are no long-term health risks associated with the procedure.
Your doctor will first check and ensure your skin can tolerate the laser’s mild heat.
The Fotona laser treatment is a safe and painless procedure. Side effects differ from person to person.
Certain patients may experience some mild redness and/or swelling (rare) after the hair removal laser treatment. However, this should go away soon after. There could also be mild itchiness. Nevertheless, that goes away in several hours on its own.
There is minimal to no downtime, depending on your skin type. For ladies, you can immediately use makeup and return to normal activities after the hair removal laser treatment.
However, there are a list of things you can’t do:
Do not bathe in a hot shower on the same day after treatment. You can have a hot shower the next day
Do not swim for at least one or two days. Your skin will become very sensitive after the session. Therefore, you should not spend so much time under direct sunlight
You should apply sunscreen generously for 3 to 4 days after each session, even if it is a cloudy day
If you lasered your bikini area, you must avoid having sex all day
Laser hair removal can cause scars or burns on the skin if an untrained person performs the treatment. So, it is important to check the doctor’s training and certification first.

Any laser hair removal treatment aims to permanently reduce unwanted hair, but it is not necessarily a permanent removal process. The hair will naturally be thinner, weaker and easier to manage.
There are two reasons for this: hormonal changes due to various lifestyles and genetic triggers. These factors can cause new hair follicles to grow back faster or slower.
So, if you notice new hair follicles reappearing, you may want to revisit your clinician for annual maintenance.
Fotona laser hair removal practitioners suggest (depending on the size of the treatment area) undergoing between 3 - 5 sessions, 3 - 4 weeks apart. This suggestion aims to give a significant aesthetic and clinical result.
Most people will see a dramatic reduction after just 3 or 4 sessions. Nevertheless, if a person undergoes up to 6 sessions, it is considered attaining near-complete hair reduction in the targeted areas.
Laser targets hair in the growing phase out of the three phases at any given point in time: resting, growing and shedding. That is why one needs multiple sessions for the Fotona permanent laser hair removal treatment to work efficiently.
The hair removal laser will impact the hair follicles situated a few millimeters from the skin. It does not go deep into the tissues. So, the laser won’t affect muscles, bones and other organs.
