What Is Fractional Laser?
Fractional laser treatment delivers hundreds of high precision microbeams into the skin creating tiny columns of thermal destruction that stimulates the growth of new, healthy skin cells.
Within each treatment zone, the penetration of collagen in the dermis causes a reaction that leads to collagen remodelling and new collagen formation. As a result, skin’s natural healing process is accelerated and the growth of new, healthy skin cells will replace old, damaged cells.
The whole reform process is performed deep in the dermis while the top layer of skin, or epidermis, is remain intact and unaffected. Thus, compare to other ablative treatments, this non-ablative treatment results in faster healing process, less pain, shorter downtime and lower risk.
What Can Be Treated By Fractional Laser?
The fractional laser is a fast, simple and effective treatment option for acne or surgical scar removal as well as for improving the way your skin looks and feels. The use of fractional laser, which breaks down scar tissue and triggers the production of new tissue, will also reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles to transform you into a younger-looking version of yourself. It boasts remarkable results on any skin type, including very light and very dark skin.
Stretch marks are a common problem for many women. When areas of skin stretch considerably over a short period of time, such as during pregnancy, noticeable lines appear on the skin surface.
The fractional laser targets stretch mark discoloration and stimulates the production of new collagen to improve and restore skin smoothness and skin consistency. The procedure is very quick – each treatment can be performed in as little as 30 minutes – and there is little to no downtime. Typically, patients require between three and five treatments to see a huge improvement on the appearance of stretch marks.
