Fractional laser is a non-invasive laser treatment that helps restore your skin from hyperpigmentation, sun damage, wrinkles and acne scarring. It also helps you achieve younger looking skin, improve your skin tone, smaller pores, reduce scarring (surgical and acne), reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
Topical anaesthetic is required prior laser to make it a comfortable treatment. The skin is then treated with microscopic laser beams that penetrate deep into the skin layers and encourages the collagen to remodel. Treatment takes approximately 20-30mins (not including topical anaesthetic time). For about 3-5days post-treatment the skin will be red after and skin will feel tight and like a mild sunburn, then slight redness and peeling may occur for the next few days. We encourage clients to stay out of direct sun for up to 2weeks and no chemical moisturiser or serums to be used for the 3 days post treatment.
We recommend 3-4 treatments to see really effective results although even after one treatment results are noticeable. Treatments are recommended 4-6weeks in between for the skin to have time to heal and remodel the resurfacing skin by stimulating the growth of health and new skin cells from the inside out.
