Fractional Laser Resurfacing is a new technology which promises to deliver results approaching that of deep chemical peels or ablative laser resurfacing, without the discomfort and inconvenience of a lengthy healing period.
The Fractional Laser treatment in Nexus Clinic offers a safe and effective treatment to reverse the signs of aging giving patients dramatic results in a single treatment with a quick recovery period. Done by expert doctors in the field, you will be able to experience the best with minimal downtime and best results.
What does "fractional" mean? How does the Fractional Laser treatment work?
Fractional therapy describes a treatment that exposes only a fraction of the skin to the laser beam in a pattern of tiny dots. The laser pulses place tiny holes in the skin. Columns of damaged tissue are selectively removed, leaving surrounding skin intact.
The treatment shortens healing time and stimulates the body’s own natural process for creating new collagen, plumping the skin from below and reversing photo-aging and reducing deep acne scars and other imperfections.
Who is a candidate for Fractional Laser Treatment?
Patients with light-to-medium skin tones and skin imperfections due to aging and sun damage will benefit from Fractional treatment.
What areas of the face can be treated?
Fractional Laser can be used on the entire face and is uniquely effective in treating the delicate periorbital (around the eyes) and perioral (around the mouth) areas. These areas often show the first signs of aging and can be the most challenging to treat.
How does a Fractional treatment feel?
Most patients describe the treatment as a series of fast, hot pinches. A topical numbing cream is applied to the skin prior to treatment to alleviate most discomfort. Practitioners may choose to augment topical creams with other medications based on patient need.
When will I see results? How soon can I wear make-up?
Many patients see improvement one week after treatment. Maximum results are visible in one to three months. Patients may apply make-up 3 days after treatment.
Are there any restrictions on my activity after a Fractional procedure?
After treatment, the skin looks sunburned and may be slightly swollen. Patients report little or no discomfort post-treatment. During post-care, patients apply ointment to the skin for four to five days and should limit sun exposure and wear protective clothing.
Many patients have a Fractional treatment in combination with other existing cosmetic therapies. These include PRP (platelet rich plasma) which is your own growth factors to augment the results of the Fractional Laser or the LED light Therapy to reduce the post laser healing time dramatically. Discuss combination treatment options with your practitioner.
How often do I need to have this treatment done?
Additional treatments are usually spaced 1 to 4 weeks apart, for a total of 4-5 treatments. Further collagen remodelling and some skin tightening take place over the next 3-6 months giving you the best results
