Removing the body hair is a huge challenge for both for Women and Men.

Laser Hair Removal offers a permanent up to 80% reduction results, available to all skin types. The treatments are affordable, quick and with minimal discomfort, so why wait?

Fotona Nd:Yag Laser Hair Removal

Nd:Yag is a state solid laser Wavelength 1064nm, that effectively and permanently reduces hair for all parts of the body and suitable for all skin types. Since mid-1190’s, laser hair removal has become the Gold standard in hair treatments. It can be achieved in two different ways: selective photothermolysis and homogeneous phothermolosys. The principle of photothermolysis is based on a selective thermal destruction of a pigmented target when sufficient energy is absorbed by the target. Because of the competition between melanin in the skin and in the hair to absorb the laser energy, which may lead to hyper or hypopigmentation, or burns, selective photothermolysis is not the ideal method for darker skins. Homogeneous phothermolysis is based on the fact that laser energy acts on a certain tissue volume homogeneously. Rapidly dividing cells with high cellular metabolism are the first to be affected by absorbed laser energy. The hair bulb cells in the anagen phase (period of active stable growth) have a high metabolic rate and are much more sensitive to heat. Surrounding tissue is preserved, while at the same time, hair follicles are irreversible destroyed. Due to the very low absorption in melanin, competition between skin and hair is less, much more suitable for darker skins. Fotona’s Nd:Yag lasers treatment principle is based on both selective and homogeneous phothermolysis. This laser source has the depth of penetration necessary to reach even the deepest hair follicles causing any collateral damage to the skin. The 1064nm wavelength of the Nd:Yag primarily targets hemoglobin, targeting the blood flow in the base of hair follicles. Because of the minimal hemoglobin in the skin, collateral damage is reduced and insignificant.

The Duration Of Each Phase Depends On The Body Area. The Difference In Duration Of A Certain Phase Related To The Hair Location In The Human Body May Be Significant- Few Weeks To Months. The Amount Of Body Hair Can Be Influenced By Hormonal Disturbances Such As Polycystic Ovary Syndrome That Causes Overgrowth Or Hirsutism.

Who Can Be Treated And Where

Women and Men above 18 years old. Not suitable for pregnant and breastfeeding women. Not suitable for blonde and grey hairs because of the lack of Melanin.The Fotona Nd:Yag laser hair removal is safe all body areas and skin types. The results depend on type of hair, laser treatment parameters, number of treatments and treatments schedule. We strongly advise the client to respect the treatment intervals to have the best possible outcome. Extra care should be taken with clients that are taking photosensitizing drugs such as: acne medications; Anticancer drugs; Antidepressants; Antihistamines and Antipsychotic drugs. These medications may cause hyperpigmentation, dermatitis and increase skin sensitivity on area treated. It is advised to test the skin first.

How Many Treatments Are Necessary And How Long Does Each Treatment Take

We recommend a course of 5 treatments every 4 to 6 weeks depending on the body area treated. The duration of each session depends on area treated, it can vary from 5 minutes to 2 hours, however Fotona has the largest spot size available that allows large areas to be treated fairly quickly and comfortably. As the treatments progress the amount of treated hair diminishes and therefor the sessions will become quicker. Maintenance treatments are recommended for long lasting results. A test patch is not needed as Fotona Nd:Yag treats all skin types, but is available upon clients request. All pre and post advice care is fully explained during your Free Consultation.

What To Expect

Laser treatments not only destroy the follicles but also the growth dynamics through growth delay. With repeated treatments hair cycles are synchronized increasing the effectiveness with each consecutive treatment Immediately after the treatment skin may appear red and sensitive. This is only temporary. Hairs that have been treated with laser will look frizzled; they will continue growing and will fall off 2 to 3 weeks after the treatment. Clients are only allowed to shave in between treatments to manage the hairs.

How Long Does It Last

The hair reduction is permanent, however it depends on each individual’s amount of hair, hair type, skin type and hair color. With repeated treatments hair cycles are synchronized increasing the effectiveness with each consecutive treatment Hormonal disorders such as polycystic ovaries syndrome can influence the results of the treatments. Maintenance treatments are highly advised to maintain the results achieved, there can vary from one to three treatments yearly.

Is It Painful?

The treatment is not painful, but a slight warming sensation can be felt. For sensitive areas we use topical anesthetic cream 1 hour prior the Laser treatment. In order to minimize skin heating and to reduce the likelihood of skin reactions , it is important to cool the skin before and after the treatment. The cold air cooling method during the treatment protects the epidermis from overheating and minimizes pain and discomfort. The cooling cold air system cools the epidermis before during and after laser energy without interfering with the laser beam.

Pre Treatment Advice

A medical history is taken at consultation, we rely on the Client to inform us for may changes to this. We need to know of any medication you are taking both prescribed and over the counter.

The area treated should be free from make-up, perfume, deodorant and body or face creams, be careful when using spray deodorant prior to treatment.

It is a pre-condition that there should be no active tan. The area should not be suntanned . Fake tan should not be applied. In case of active tan, wait 3 weeks before starting the treatments. In case of a planned sunny holiday you can have treatment 3 weeks before date of departure.

Avoid taking aspirin, anti- inflammatories or any other blood thinning drugs.

Avoid waxing and plucking for at least one month before the treatment. We advise clients to shave four days before the laser appointment. Hairs should be visible and the ideal length is 1to 2mm.

Post Treatment Advice

Care should be taken with the treated area immediately after the treatment, avoid strenuous activities which may cause trauma. Avoid tight clothes.

If Redness persists, apply hydrocortisone cream 1% ( available at Boots) and apply ice packs.

Avoid sun exposure. Always use SPF30. Failure to do so can lead to change in color of the skin- hyperpigmentation.

Clients are advised to use Mineral Make up, as it is skin friendly. Remove make up carefully, rubbing the skin can cause irritation and infection.

Avoid hot showers as the skin is sensitive.
