In most cases a  combination of Lasers can be individualised for enhanced results.

Fractional, non-ablative (does not remove the surface) laser is a method used to treat fine acne scarring, fine lines, sun damage and hyperpigmentation. Poor texture, dull skin and refinement of pore size are also treated with this proven cosmetic treatment. Fractional Laser treatment utilises a pixilated beam of controlled light energy to cause microscopic damage to skin cells in the deep dermis, enough to create wound healing that results in stimulating new collagen with healthy cell development. Several treatments may be needed to achieve desired results, usually 4-6 weeks apart.


The reason this treatment is so popular is that the energy points (pixels) are so small [one tenth of the width of a pore] and there are hundreds of thousands of these energy points directed into the skin, which responds by forming firmer new cells.
