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.

Avalanche FRAC3 ® procedure for maximum comfort and safety

One of the challenges when performing laser hair removal is the relatively low absorption of laser light in the treated hair, especially when the hair is blond and/or the skin is dark. Using the Avalanche FRAC3 ® procedure, low energy FRAC3 ® laser pulses are delivered to the same skin area several times during the same session, causing a gradual increase in absorption of the laser energy in the hair. This leads to effective hair removal even at lower

aser parameters than those required when single-pass hair removal is performed, making the treatment much more comfortable, often eliminating the need for cooling.

Using the Avalanche FRAC3® procedure, hair temperature is gradually increased with a sequence of low-energy pulses delivered to the same hair, effectivelly destroying the hair while maximizing treatment comfort.

Exclusive advantage of FRAC3 ® hair removal for you and your patients

Compared to the standard laser hair removal treatment concept, which requires medium-to-long laser pulse durations (LP, 15 – 50 ms), Fotona's short FRAC3 ® pulse, ideally 0.3 – 1.6 ms long exhibits the lowest hair damage thresholds, making this treatment more comfortable to the patient.

Measured dependence of the hair damage threshold. Hair removal is much more effective at FRAC3® laser pulse conditions, while keeping the epidermis safe.

Why is the Fotona Dynamis/Spectro Line perfect for FRAC3 ® hair removal?

The Fotona Dynamis/Spectro Line provides the optimal pulse profile, speed and power for quick and efficient hair removal using super-short FRAC3 ® pulses as well as standard long pulses. To treat large body areas of various shapes, SOE (Scanner Optimized Efficacy) technology can be used to quickly fill the entire treatment area with uniform energy at high laser pulse power densities, providing fast, precise, consistent and comfortable FRAC3 ® laser treatments. The result is a safer, uniform laser treatment without hot spots or energy loss.
