Fractional lasers are able to improve the skin’s complexion from all angles, addressing everything from pigmentation and texture to signs of ageing.
Fractional (ablative) laser resurfacing, is an ablative treatment which is effective in treating the following skin conditions in a quicker time than most other laser treatments:
The benefits of fractional lasers are the delivering of the laser light, split into tiny columns (dots). This reduces the downtime of redness and peeling.
The fibroblasts within the dermis are stimulated to divide, this produces an increase in collagen and the skin is rejuvenated.
As the skin around the columns, are not affected by the laser, it enhances the recovery, reducing the downtime.
Things to know before your fractional laser appointment.
Although you will get a great improvement with one fractional laser treatment, for deeper and more extensive damage, your skin may require multiple treatments, several weeks apart.
After the treatment you may experience some redness, mild swelling and scabbing for a few days after treatment.
Our doctor and laser therapist recommend a specific skincare routine for you to follow at home to ensure a rapid healing and recovery to gain maximum results.
The full result of skin improvements can take up to several months, after a week you can notice your complexion and skin tone looking healthier.
