Fractional Laser Skin Resurfacing

Fractional laser resurfacing is a non-invasive procedure used to maintain or bring back the skin’s natural youth. Treatments precisely target microscopic imperfections on the face or body without damaging the surrounding skin.

As a result, the treated areas of the skin blend in with the untreated areas, improving the overall look of the skin without creating any visible wounds or irritation.

FAQ

  • What is fractional laser resurfacing?

    Fractional laser resurfacing is a non-invasive procedure used to maintain or restore or enhance skin radiance. A fractional skin resurfacing treatment precisely targets any microscopic imperfections on the face and body, without damaging any of the surrounding areas. As a result, after a fractional laser resurfacing treatment, the treated areas of the skin blend in with the untreated areas, which works to improve the overall appearance of the skin, without creating any visible wounds or irritation.

  • How does the treatment work?

    During a fractional laser treatment, the laser pulses create tiny ablative zones, removing the epidermis and upper dermis. The treatment then triggers the body’s natural healing process, stimulating the growth of new, healthy skin tissue.

    The procedure treats small zones of the skin, leaving surrounding tissue untouched and intact. These large unaffected areas act as a reservoir for more effective and rapid tissue healing and collagen production.

  • how is the treatment carried out?

    As every client’s body, skin and goals are unique, a detailed consultation with one of our expert aesthetic therapists is essential prior to undergoing any advanced non-surgical treatment.

    During the consultation, your aesthetic therapist will discuss any problem areas, desired improvements, available options (including no treatment at all) and expected outcomes. A thorough medical history will be recorded and photographs taken to document your starting point prior to treatment.

    Should fractional skin resurfacing be agreed upon as the most suitable system to address your concerns, your aesthetic therapist will devise a bespoke programme of treatment. During a fractional laser treatment, precisely targeted laser pulses create tiny ablative zones, removing the epidermis and upper dermis. The treatment then triggers the body’s natural healing process, stimulating the growth of new, healthy skin tissue.

  • What results should I expect?

    Following a course of fractional skin resurfacing, patients should expect to see improved skin texture, tone and firmness, and visibly reduced wrinkles, pore size and acne scarring. Pixel™ works by plumbing the collagen in the skin without the downtime and discomfort associated with other resurfacing lasers.

  • How many treaments will I need?

    For optimum results a course of 3 treatments taken at 6 weekly intervals is generally recommended.

  • Is there any downtime?

    Skin will appear red and hot to the touch immediately after treatment, the worst of which usually subsides within the hour. Skin will continue to show symptoms comparable to mild sunburn for 7-10 days post treatment with full recovery usually achieved around 2 weeks post procedure.

  • Am I suitable for treatment?

    Fractional laser skin resurfacing is suitable for a wide range of patients of varying ages and with a number of skin concerns and conditions.

    Patients must however, wait 6 months after giving birth (if not breastfeeding) or 6 months after ceasing breastfeeding, before undergoing this procedure. This period is necessary to allow for post-pregnancy hormones to return to a normal, consistent level.
