This procedure is a state-of-the-art, non-ablative skin resurfacing technology. The laser beams of light utilise a narrow range of wavelengths to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin fibres in the deeper layers of the skin. Results are achieved after 3 - 5 sessions and improvements continue up to one year post treatments. By regenerating the collagen, the skin regains a more youthful appearance, with minimal downtime. Topical numbing agent will need to be applied 30 minutes prior to the procedure. This is suitable for deeper wrinkles and lines, acne scarring, surgical scars and pore refinement.
Who is suitable for Non Ablative Fractional Laser?
Non Ablative Fractional Laser is suitable for:
- - Sundamage and pigmentation
- - Post acne scarring
- - Skin rejuvenation & ageing
- - Deeper perioral wrinkles
- - Collagen and Elastin loss
- - Irregular skin texture
- - Enlarged pores
Non Ablative Fractional Lasers are developed with a technology that induces a controlled thermal heating to the deeper layer of the skin called the dermis. Micro columns of laser beams are utilised to heat the skins cells and tissues. This stimulates a wound healing process while stimulating collagen an elastin production. The laser settings are altered and customised for each individual concern.
Once your topical numbing agent starts to reduce in effectiveness you will start feeling moderate heat build-up in the skin. Directly after Non Ablative Fractional Laser your skin may experience a moderate sunburn like sensation with heat, facial redness, and generalised swelling. These responses can last up to 3 days post laser. No makeup is recommended directly after this treatment; however, a mineral powder may be used approximately 24-48 hours post. Around day 3 your skin may experience a “bronzing” like appearance in the shape of the laser’s headpiece, skin dryness and itchiness.
Non Ablative Fractional Lasers need up to 3-6 treatments at 6 weekly intervals for best results. Results from this treatment can be seen from treatment 2-3 onwards with skin improvement up to 6-12 months post course.
