FRAC3® Hair Removal
• permanent hair reduction • gentle, fast and convenient • long-lasting results
• suitable for all skin types • 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 relatively low absorption in melanin, Nd:YAG laser treatments can be used safely and effectively even with darker skin types.
How does FRAC3® hair removal work?
Fotona’s Nd:YAG laser energy is absorbed selectively by the hair bulb and hair matrix, thus destroying the hair follicle. The FRAC3® pulse produces a three-dimensional fractional pattern within the epidermis and dermis, with energy being absorbed predominantly at the sites of small skin imperfections before heat is transferred to the surrounding non-target structures.
Laser parameters can be adjusted quickly and easily according to your skin type, hair thickness, hair colour as well as depth of hair follicles. This means we are able to work with you through your treatment plan to adjust according to each individual reaction. Nd:YAG FRAC3® pulses are administered with a slight overlap covering the entire treatment surface. We don’t just apply cooling to maximise comfort during the treatment, the cooling handpiece is attached to the Nd:YAG FRAC3® handpiece to ensure absolute comfort and minimal pain.
Special post-treatment care is not required. Follicles treated in the anagen phase should fall out in approximately 2-3 weeks. The treatment schedule will depend on each individual’s hair growth cycle.
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 laser parameters than those required when single-pass hair removal is performed, making the treatment much more comfortable, often eliminating the need for cooling.
Exclusive advantage of FRAC3® hair removal
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 you.
For all skin types.
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 penetration necessary to reach and destroy even the deepest hair follicles and can successfully be used on all body areas.

How many sessions will I need?
Usually 6-8 sessions are required. The treatment schedule will depend on each individual’s hair growth cycle. We provide free consultations where our qualified therapists will provide you with a personalised treatment plan.
In preparation for your appointment
For your initial consultation, leave hair to grow for 3-7 days so we can see and assess the hair thickness and colour before treatment. We will gently shave the area at your consult before we do a test patch.
For your actual laser treatments, shave hair well the night before.
