What is Fotona Laser Hair Removal?
At Captivating Skin Health and Wellness we use a medical grade laser sold only to physician-offices. The Fotona Dynamis Pro offers a safe, effective and convenient way to achieve permanent hair reduction. These treatments deliver outstanding results, saving you both time and money!
How does it work?
A laser emits a very narrow beam of light which is absorbed by the pigment in the pilosebaceous-unit. The pilosebaceous unit consists of the hair, hair follicle, oil gland and blood vessel. The light is transformed into heat energy which damages this unit, and in effect delaying or inhibiting future growth.
- Major reduction in hair growth
- Any remaining hair is finer and less visible ( a process that is referred to as miniaturization)
- Due to the variety of settings on the Fotona Dynamis, darker skin tones are now candidates for laser hair removal where wasn’t previously possible.
Process & Treatment
Although improvement can be noted after a single treatment, multiple sessions are required. This is because hair grows in what we refer to as “phases”. Because the end target is the blood vessel, we need to treat the hairs that are in anagen phase to have permanent results. At any given time only 20% of our hair is in anagen phase. This is why most patients require 6-8 treatments. Facial hair should be done 4-6 weeks apart, and body hair 6-8 in order to catch all the growth cycles.
Most patients see a 10-25% reduction in hair growth with each treatment.
15-60 minutes depending on the size of area
Laser Hair Removal does not require a new patient consultation however we recommend all patients considering visiting our clinic make an appointment for a new patient consult. This consultation will be conducted by our laser technicians, and is offered free of charge to our patients. Because your safety is our first priority, our consultation will include a brief medical and relevant aesthetic history. You will have the chance to discuss your treatment concerns, your treatment goals, your fears and concerns in regards to the actual treatment itself.
Picutres will be taken at baseline, and upon conclusion of your treatment plan
If you wished to opt for a pre-treatment consultation, same day treatment is often possible and is usually discussed at the time of booking the consultation.

You will be given access to an online portal where you can complete all the required paperwork and consent forms before your treatment date. Upon arrival at Captivating, our friendly front office team will greet you and escort you to your treatment room, where our skilled laser technician will review any concerns before performing your treatment.
