Fractional ablative lasers target thousands of pinpoint areas in the skin. Healing of each pinpoint addresses skin problems such as photo damage, poor skin tone and texture, wrinkles and scars. 

The zones of untreated skin invigorate the body's natural healing process, and the treated areas stimulate production of new collagen, plumping up the skin and smoothing out wrinkles, lines, scars and other irregularities. 

By delivering energy deep into the dermal tissue, fractional resurfacing selectively injures collagen molecules, causing wound-healing response and stimulating fibrolast activity. Fibroblasts turn on new collagen production, rejuvenating the collagen matrix and plumping the skin from the inside out. 

What conditions can be treated with Fractional Ablative Laser?

  • Wrinkles and lines

  • Post-traumatic scars

  • Acne scars

  • Skin laxity 

  • Aging and sun-damaged skin

What can I expect immediately after the treatment?

  • Downtime between 5-14 days depending on the skin condition and treatment settings, redness, swelling and a sunburn sensation will be noticed in the treated area for a few days after.

  • Pinpoint bleeding may occur, which will subside within 1-2 days after the treatment without any intervention

  • Most people can return to work and sport by 7-10 days, although the skin stays red for weeks - you need to apply makeup to disguise this

How many treatments are required? 

1-3 treatments are recommended 4-8 weeks apart to achieve the desired results
