Fractional Laser Treatments

Fractional Laser technology is used to tighten skin as well as to stimulates collagen and elastin growth in the skin. The Laser treatment is used to create numerous microscopic thermal injury zones of controlled width, depth, and density that are surrounded by a reservoir of spared epidermal and dermal tissue, promoting of rapid repair of laser-induced thermal injury.

FAQ: Fractional Laser Treatment


1. What is Fractional Laser Treatment?
Fractional Laser

Fractional laser treatment is a quick and comfortable laser procedure with little to no down time, used for improving the overall appearance of your skin. ProFractional uses a laser beam to treat thousands of pinpoint areas of your skin. Only a fraction of the skin is directly treated with the laser so healing time is quick and down time is short.

2. What conditions can be treated with Fractional?
Use of fractional laser

Fractional laser can be used to improve a wide variety of skin conditions but it is mostly used for:

  • wrinkles and fine lines
  • post-traumatic scars
  • acne scars
  • sun-induced damage and aged skin 
3. How does the Fractional laser work?

Fractional laser uses light energy to create thousands of microscopic channels in the skin which are surrounded by areas of healthy, untreated skin. The zones of untreated skin allow for faster healing and make it more suitable for patients of darker skin type (in contrast to older resurfacing technologies that treated one hundred percent of the skin s surface.) The treated areas stimulate production of new collagen, plumping up the skin and smoothing out wrinkles, lines, scars and other irregularities.

4. Who should consider Fractional treatment?

If you are looking for younger-looking skin, or to improve scars, wrinkles or sun damage with a reasonably comfortable treatment and with fast recovery, you may be a candidate for ProFractional laser. ProFractional laser is suitable for scar correction in patients of darker skin type.

5. What areas can be treated?

Most skin areas can be treated. The face is the commonest area. The face has a large recovery reservoir and can be treated more aggressively than other areas, such as the back of the hands.

6. How long does Fractional laser therapy take?

Fractional laser is fast, comfortable, and typically is performed on an outpatient basis. The procedure normally takes 15 30 minutes, depending upon the condition and size of the area being treated.

7. Is it painful?

Fractional laser does require some anaesthesia. Topical numbing creams are commonly applied in advance (up to two hours or so) to produce anaesthesia. This allows for a very comfortable procedure. Smaller areas can be treated with local anaesthetic injections. Similarly, numbing creams can be supplemented with injection anaesthesia if there is still discomfort.

8. What are the side-effects of Fractional laser treatment?

It is normal for there to be slight crusting of the skin surface on dressings. This will typically clear with the use of moisturiser or Vaseline.
As with any therapy, scarring is possible but is a rare side-effect of Fractional treatment.
Redness is normal following treatment and usually fades over five days or so, dependent on the depth and density of the micro-injuries.
Faint patterning is possible as a side-effect but usually fades back to normal over several months.
As per any injury, infection is possible but is unusual following treatment.
Finally, whilst not a side-effect, response to treatment is often partial. For example, acne scarring will usually improve by 50% or so with a number of Fractional treatments. It is often difficult to obtain a greater response.

9. How many Fractional treatments will I need?

ProFractional laser is typically done in a series of 1 4 treatments, usually spaced a month or two apart, depending upon your needs. ProFractional laser can be combined with other procedures, such as a laser peel or skin-tightening procedures, to further enhance the treatment result.

9. How much does it costs?
