Fractional Laser Skin Treatments

Fraxel is a treatment that uses fractional laser technology to treat minor to severe skin damage. The Fraxel laser is an effective treatment for scarring, sun spots, wrinkles and other signs of aging. The laser targets both the superficial and the deeper layers of the skin giving a smoother, fresher and more youthful appearance. It is an effective treatment for anywhere on the body. The Fraxel treatment is carried out by one of our highly trained specialists. During your initial consultation the specialist will discuss the procedure with you and come up with a personalised treatment plan. For the best results it is recommended that patients have 3 to 6 sessions of Fraxel treatment. Each Fraxel treatment will take between 20 to 30 minutes.

How does Fraxel work?

Fraxel treatment uses patented fractional technology to target damaged skin with microscopic laser columns that penetrate deep into the skin. The laser treats only a fraction of the tissue at a time leaving the surrounding tissue untouched. This stimulates your body's own natural healing process, replacing the old and damaged cells with fresh, glowing, healthy skin. The microtrauma created by the laser stimulates the production of collagen which plumps the skin and helps to reduce imperfections. Depending on the level of the treatment, you may experience redness or swelling after the procedure. This should subside within 1 to 4 days.

What results will I see and when will I see them?

The Fraxel treatment gives both immediate and progressive results. Shortly after the treatment you can expect to see smoother, fresher skin giving you a more youthful appearance. As early as after your first treatment you should notice that your skin’s texture has improved and that wrinkles, pores and brown spots appear reduced. Acne scars and surgical scars will appear flatter and more even. Over the following 3 to 6 months further improvement will be seen as new collagen is produced in the deeper layers of skin. The overall results are long lasting and depend on your lifestyle, skin condition, age and skin care regimen.
