Used to reduce the appearance of deep wrinkles, fractional laser can also reduce open pores, pigmentation and acne scarring.
As well as the face and neck the treatment is also great for rejuvenating the décolletage area and the hands.
The laser is used to deliver ‘dots’ of laser energy to penetrate the skin. The laser energy used stimulates the body’s natural collagen production resulting in a more even appearance of the skin.
The treatment is suitable for all skin types. We will assess your individual requirements with a pre-treatment consultation.
- Typically there is no need for sedation during fractional laser treatment. In most cases an anaesthetic cream prior to treatment is all that is required.
- You may experience a slight “stinging” during the treatment.
- Post – treatment you will feel like you do following sunburn. The skin needs to be moisturised and a high quality sunscreen used.
- The treatment will take around 90 minutes.
Compared to full skin ablation treatments seen in the past, there is significant reduction of after-treatment discomfort and downtime. We’ve gone from weeks of skin redness after treatment to around 10 days.
The majority of patients see increased skin tone after the first treatment.
The number of treatments required depends on the condition of your skin and the end result you are after.
You may notice your pigmentation marks have faded after one single treatment, though two may be necessary to see the effects.
As laser stimulates the production of collagen you will notice a progressive improvement in your skin for at least six months after your last treatment.
Fractional laser can be a great investment for your skin.
