When Do We Recommend Profractional Laser?
The Profractional Laser treatment was designed for those looking for younger-looking skin or who want to improve scars, wrinkles or sun damage with a comfortable treatment. If you demand a fast recovery, then you may be an ideal candidate for fractional laser.
It effectively treats and improves a wide variety of skin conditions like wrinkles and fine lines, post-traumatic scars, acne scars, age spots, sun spots, freckles, aging and sun-damaged skin.
Most skin areas can be treated. Popular areas are the face, neck, chest and hands.
How Does It Work?
Profractional Laser uses laser energy to create thousands of microscopic channels, or wounds, in damaged areas of the skin, without affecting areas of healthy, untreated skin. 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. Discomfort is reduced, and healing time is much faster, compared to other laser treatments of similar type.
What Is The Typical Course Of Treatment?
Profractional Laser is typically done in a series of one to four treatments, spaced four to six weeks apart, depending on the condition being treated, and the severity of the problem. Your specialist may also suggest a combination of ProFractional™ Laser with a Micro Laser Peel or other popular aesthetic procedures to further enhance your treatment results.
What Can You / Can’t You Expect From The Treatment?
Healing takes between two to five days, and in most cases you will be able to get back to work and apply make-up within two days after the treatment.
It is important to follow your Specialist’s instructions, which may include some skincare products and instructions on how to use them. Your skin will be more sensitive to ultraviolet light after the procedure, and you must therefore avoid direct sun exposure until fully healed. Some form of sun protection higher than SPF15 should always be used to avoid sun damage and premature aging of your skin.
Look forward to a beautiful improvement in the appearance of the treated area.
What Are The Unwanted Effects / Risks Of The Treatment?
Immediately after the procedure you may experience a mild redness, resembling light sunburn and some swelling may occur, which usually subsides after one or two days.
