Fractional Laser treatment is used to treat a number of skin conditions with minimal downtime. Fractional Laser is less invasive compared to ablative laser procedures which result in a quicker recovery time. The laser delivers light to the skin through numerous high precision microbeams that penetrate the skin into the dermis layer. This process creates small, deep columns of skin coagulation which is surrounded by the untreated healthier skin. By replacing old damaged skin, the process causes the skin to repair itself leaving you with a new and healthier skin.
Most patients experience minimal downtime and the side effects are mild redness and possible swelling which can last for a few days to a week following the laser treatment. Treatments are performed at intervals of 4 to 6 weeks and generally require 4 – 6 sessions for optimal results to be acheived.
Fractional Laser can treat the following conditions:
- Acne scarring
- Skin Resurfacing
- Stretch marks or Striae
Fractional Laser combine the best of the gentle and safe aspects of both fractionated and non-ablative laser technology that is available today. The laser treatment is aimed at improving fine lines and wrinkles, skin texture, acne scarring and stretch marks. The laser can be used to treat the face, neck, chest and body safely and effectively. Fractional Laser is also effective in treating darker skin types with less risk of decolouration or damage.
