LASER HAIR REMOVAL

Why laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal allows you to remove unwanted body and facial hair is a common problem for many men and women of all skin types. Laser hair treatments are safe, effective and convenient way to achieve permanent hair reduction. These treatments deliver outstanding results, saving you time and money!

Who can get laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal treatments traditionally work best on people with fair skin and dark hair since the light from the laser does not
get absorbed by dark pigments in the skin surrounding the hair follicle. However, devices with longer wavelengths, such as “Nd:YAG” lasers, have the ability to treat darker skin types, as they can reach the deepest hair follicles with lower light absorption by the surrounding skin.

FRAC3® Hair Removal
No ingrown hair, irritated or infected skin • suitable for larger and smaller areas

What is FRAC3® hair removal?

The 1064 nm Nd:YAG FRAC3® method is optimized to deliver high intensity laser pulses in extremely short times of less than 2 ms, sufficiently short to destroy most hair types while avoiding unnecessary damage to the epidermis. Due to the relativelly low absorbtion in melanin, Nd:YAG laser treatments can be used safely and effectively even with darker skin types.

The Nd:YAG laser source has the depth of pene- tration necessary to reach and destroy even the deepest hair follicles and can successfully be used on all body areas.

Research results indicate that a wavelength of 1064 nm is efficacious in obtaining a greater penetration and reaching the deeper follicles, with a greater respect for the skin due to the lower absorption by the melanin, and consequently a lower incidence of side effects.

Safety

Compared to the standard laser hair removal treatment concept, which requires medium-to-long laser pulse the short FRAC3® pulse, exhibits the lowest hair damage thresholds, making this treatment more comfortable.
