What is Fractionated Laser?
Fractionated Laser is a non-invasive laser treatment that is designed to promote collagen and elastin production. It smooths wrinkles, stretch marks and scars, fades pigmentation and resurfaces the skin’s texture and tone.
SM Aesthetic Lab uses The ResurFX™ laser for all fractionated laser treatments. The ResurFX™ is the latest in non-ablative, fractional laser technology. It is a non-ablative laser, which stimulates the skin to develop collagen without harming or ablating it. The ResurFX™ requires only one pass over the skin to produce effective results, reducing treatment time. Finally, since it is a non-ablative, fractional laser, the recovery time after the procedure is minimised.
How does it work?
Microchannels of laser light deliver energy to the deeper layers of the dermis. The body responds to these micro-injuries to the skin resulting in increased blood flow and wound healing. The laser beam causes heating of the tissue which stimulates collagen and elastin production.
The patient will have an initial consultation with a Registered Nurse or Dermal Therapist to discuss their concerns and goals.
The area to be treated is cleansed and a topical anaesthetic can be applied for patient comfort.
Post treatment there can be some redness and heat. Some patients experience skin dryness for up to 7 days. Darkening of the skin can be expected for up to 7 days.
Fractionated Laser can be used on any skin type and ethnicity.
