What is it?
Fractional lasers are used for skin resurfacing, treating acne scars, enlarged pores, uneven skin tone and for skin tightening.
Fractional lasers remove tiny pin point areas of skin in a pixilated pattern. The skin that is left behind in-between the treated areas acts as a reservoir of healthy tissue thereby promoting rapid healing , lowering the down time of treatments.
What to expect?
A anaesthetic cream is applied to the area of treatment for about 15 mins before the doctors do the procedure. There is usually very little discomfort for this laser.
The healing process after the treatment stimulates the formation of collagen and new skin cells which will aims to repair scars, fine lines and wrinkles.
The post treatment skin is expected to be smoother thereby minimizing the appearances of acne scars as well as tighter and finer textured.
After the treatments our doctors will usually advice an avoidance of excessive sun exposure and the application of topical creams to minimize complications.
