Fotona 4D FRAC3 Hair Removal London
The most technologically advanced and multifunctional Fotona4D neodymium-yag laser efficiently eliminates both dark and light hair of any skin color. The only exception is hair without pigment, completely white or gray. The Nd-YAG Fotona Dyamis SP laser is monochromatic (constant wavelength), the device operates in a unidirectional (the beam does not disperse) and selectively, which ensures the highest safety without the risk of tissue damage.
The beam emitted by the laser has a destructive effect not only on the melanin in the hair, but above all on the nipples and blood vessels nourishing the hair, concentrated around the hair follicles. This is why after depilation, unnourished hair dies permanently. The wavelength of the Foton neodymium-yag laser is also important for the effectiveness of laser hair removal (epilation), which is 1064 nm and is the longest ever used. Since it is able to reach a depth of 5-6 mm, it effectively destroys the hair follicles located at this level and the structures that nourish them. After the treatment, the hair becomes weaker, then dies off and falls out after 2 to 3 weeks.
It should be remembered that laser devices are effective only in the permanent removal of hair in the active growth phase (anagen), i.e. when the hair is richly vascularized and melanocytes produce melanin. Laser hair removal treatments require a series of at least 4-6 repetitions, because some of the hair is always in different phases and the dormant periods vary in duration.
After the first treatment, you should expect to remove approximately 20% -30% of the hair at the treatment site. The series ensures permanent hair removal at the level of approx. 90%.
Important before the procedure
We do not tan the skin for a month before the treatment For a month before the procedure, we do not epilate the skin with wax, tweezers or epilators At least a month before the procedure, we give up retinol and creams with fruit acids (locally, where we want to perform epilation) Two weeks before the procedure, we stop taking medications and photosensitizing herbs, we can return to them 2 weeks after the procedure A week before the procedure, we discontinue depilatory creams A week before the procedure, we do not exfoliate the skin, using peels and exfoliating creams We do not drink alcohol on the day of the procedure We come to the treatment with clean, shaved skin at the treatment site
Important after the procedure
We recommend cold compresses after epilation, especially if redness or swelling appears. There is no need to worry, most often this symptom disappears after a few hours. Cosmetics can be used one day after the treatment. It is worth using, for example, soothing creams with allantoin, We do not use hot baths and saunas for 14 days. For a month we do not take medications, herbs and we do not use photosensitizing creams. We do not expose epilated skin to the sun for a month and we protect ourselves with UV creams. During the series, we do not epilate the hair using other methods, but only shave it. After the treatment, the hair will not fall out immediately, it will gradually start to come out of the hair follicles, which may give the impression that it is growing and that there are more of them. It is a natural process of removing dead hair from the skin.
Recommended number of treatments
We perform laser epilation treatments every 4-6 weeks. For a satisfactory effect, we recommend a series of at least 6 treatments. The laser hair removal treatment with the Fotona4D system does not differ from the standard laser hair removal treatment. Feeling stabs when emitting the laser beam are minimized thanks to cooling with a cold air nozzle, which is integrated with the laser head.
