Fractional Laser Skin Resurfacing
Fractional Laser Skin Resurfacing

With the help of a treatment with the Fractional Laser, aging skin can be combatted and revived, healthy skin can be achieved after just one treatment.

 

Fractional Laser Skin Resurfacing is a highly specialised skin rejuvenation treatment that can fight the signs of ageing while simultaneously treating the appearance of open pores, fine lines, sun damage, and pigmentation. It’s FDA approved, which means you can feel confident with both the procedure itself and our appearance medicine experts.

The most important thing about any cosmetic treatment is that it looks entirely natural. Our goal is that you'll look like the best version of yourself, not a different person. The wrinkles we choose to leave are as important as the ones we reduce.

About

The Fractional Laser is a very precise tool  and can be used for small zones of skin with the surrounding areas remaining untouched. The laser pulse creates tiny holes – through the top two layers of skin – and then triggers your body’s natural healing processes so that new, healthy skin tissue grows from the edges of the microscopic hole. The result of this treatment is fresh, healthy, smooth skin tissue instead of unsightly imperfections.

This cutting edge technology can be used to treat:

  • Fine lines
  • Skin tone issues
  • Brown spots
  • Pore appearance
  • Acne scars
  • Surgical and traumatic scars
Treatment

Fractional Laser Skin Resurfacing can be quite uncomfortable, so a topical anaesthetic cream can be applied 60 minutes prior to the session and/or you can take two paracetamol tablets 30 minutes beforehand. Usually our patients experience some slight warmth from the laser’s pulse, and there can be a sunburn-like sensation after the treatment ( for up to 3 to 4 hours), which can easily be dealt with by applying a gentle moisturiser.

There are generally about 7 to 10 days of downtime after you receive this treatment. You will likely experience some immediate redness, which should subside within a few hours. This, and any other immediate side effects, can be neutralised by applying ice-packs to the treated area immediately after the procedure and for the rest of the day.

For the first 3 to 4 days after Pixel™ treatment, your skin will be fragile. Take special care when you wash your face during this time – and avoid using facial scrubs, washcloths and buff puffs. You should already notice your skin looking better by this point, and the results will continue to improve over the following months.

You must use a broad spectrum SPF 30+ sunscreen every day to prevent further damage. Our staff can provide you with advice and answer any of your questions or concerns –starting you on a suitable skincare regime to match up with your skin type and your requirements.
