Fotona's high-performance Nd:YAG laser systems with FRAC3® technology have introduced new standards of efficiency in providing safe and effective hair reduction – using an innovative system that effectively targets hair follicles with a combination of selective and homogenous photothermolysis.
Safe for All Skin Types
Fotona’s Nd:YAG lasers incorporate revolutionary pulse-control technology and a proprietary three-dimensional treatment pattern (FRAC3®) to provide safe and effective hair reduction. Unlike other wavelengths, only Nd:YAG is safe to use on all skin types. Fotona’s innovative system effectively targets surface treatment areas while leaving surrounding tissues unaffected. The success of hair reduction treatments depends largely on a patient’s skin and hair type, as well as the skills and treatment insight of the practitioner. Most patients can expect a significant reduction in unwanted hair, and any future hair growth will usually be thinner and lighter, and thus much less pronounced than before.
High-Performance Hair Reduction
Combined with the special high-performance S-11 scanner from Fotona, you can easily treat large areas such as the legs, back and chest quickly and efficiently, making laser treatments one of the most cost-effective solutions for long-term hair reduction. Fotona's high peak-power laser pulses provide the speed and efficiency needed to uniformly cover large scanning areas. Depending on the size of the treatment area, between three to five sessions, six to eight weeks apart will lead to a significant aesthetic and clinical result.
Clinically proven, safe and effectively long-lasting Ellipse I²PL hair removal treatment offers clinically-proven, safe and effective long-term removal of unwanted hair.
Excellent hair clearance is obtained after only 6 treatments and clinical long term studies have proven that 77% hair is still away after 10 years.
How does the Ellipse I²PL treatment work?
To achieve long lasting or permanent hair removal, it is necessary to destroy the hair follicle from which individual hairs grow. Controlled pulses of light penetrate the epidermis and are absorbed by melanin in the hair contained in the follicle. Melanin converts the light energy into heat. This heat is transferred to the hair follicle, which is destroyed, making it unable to produce a new hair. Hair in the resting (telogen stage) are treated later. The treatment is only effective on growing hairs as these are still attached to the follicle. This technique is called “Selective Photothermolysis”. The visible light produced by Ellipse I²PL systems is carefully controlled to ensure the correct pulse length, wavelengths and right amount of energy to destroy the follicle.
Ellipse professional hair removal equipment is suitable for all body areas including arms, underarms, back, chest, bikini line, brazilian as well as legs. This treatment offers painless permanent hair reduction delivering smooth skin for both male and females. This treatment is widely available in salons, clinics, spas and in some NHS hospitals.
