If you’ve got problem skin, Fractional laser might be the answer. The Fractional Laser is a revolutionary laser treatment which helps you take years off your appearance. Fractional photothermolysis involves treating a fraction of skin at a time, without affecting the surrounding tissue. Particularly effective in healing scars, the procedure also refines skin complexion by reducing pore-size and uneven skin colouring. It works well for all skin types, including dark skin or sensitive skin that marks easily. It’s ideally suited for the face, neck, décolletage and back of hands.
RSBS prevents the risk of PIH
Short procedure time, Preset facial & scar forms
Penetration depth control
Painless with x-y random spray mechanism
Random Sprayed Beam System (RSBS) delivers multiple clinical adventages with less patient discomfort and downtime.
Able to be tailored to the particular problem, Fractional laser involves a gentle but deeply penetrating laser that directs micro-columns of infra-red light to heat skin tissue to expedite your body’s remodeling of collagen. A computer-guided scanner accurately fixes the laser parameters – such as depth, rate and scan pattern – giving a precise and uniform effect on the skin. This stimulates a regenerative response in the skin to produce clearer, more vibrant and healthier looking skin.
All these procedures use state-of-the-art fractional technology to get the most out of the cosmetic benefits of laser skin resurfacing, while keeping the side-effects and recovery time to a minimum. Fractional laser uses non-ablative (minimally invasive) laser light to treat the skin which allows for a rapid recovery time. The non-ablative laser beams are delivered as individual columns in a polka dot fashion. The advantage is the reduced downtime as adjacent normal tissue can assist with more rapid healing. These multiple columns of laser beam can be varied in width, depth and density for a treatment program that is just right for you.
Fractional CO2 resurfacing delivers fractional lasering in a similar way, but is an ablative laser (moderately invasive) with greater intensity, and tends to have a longer recovery time.
To get the best out of the procedure, up to 5 treatments sessions are recommended. These can be carried out every 1–2 months. To keep your complexion looking its best, maintenance treatments can be performed yearly.
Most patients describe a burning sensation during treatment, and therefore requires some form of anesthetic. A topical anesthetic cream applied 60 minutes before the procedure works very well. Cold air is applied to the treatment area, to further reduce any associated discomfort. After the procedure, there will be a mild burning sensation for several hours. This is usually very well tolerated.
Deeper treatment will naturally produce more swelling, redness and discomfort – but these are only temporary. Excessive swelling, redness and scaling lasting more than 3–4 days is uncommon with standard treatment protocols.
