How does Fractional Laser Therapy work?

Laser treatments have been used in cosmetic dermatology for many years. The principle is that the energy from a carefully controlled laser can be used to stimulate the lower layers of skin to rejuvenate and renew. The fibroblasts within the dermis are encouraged to divide and to produce more collagen and the skin is revitalised from the inside.

non-fractional lasers target the deeper layers of skin while leaving the surface layer undamaged; fractional lasers are more effective but cause the skin to redden and peel.

What is fractional laser treatment?

Fractional lasers are a technological step up from traditional fractional lasers, delivering laser light that is split into tiny fractions or dots, a bit like pixels on a computer screen.

If you have this type of treatment, the positive effects on the skin are comparable but the skin redness and peeling afterward are much reduced. This means that you don’t have to have as much time off work after a treatment.

 Fractional laser therapy is available to treat wrinkles, acne scars, and unwanted skin pigmentation such as age/sunspots.

We will devise a treatment schedule specifically tailored to your needs. Deeper more extensive scarring will require more treatment sessions.
