Fractional non-ablative laser technology offers enhancements such as reduced scarring, tightened skin, improved skin tone and texture and improved appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
With fractional laser technology, the laser penetrates only small areas of the skin, depending on the size of the laser beam. This allows the laser to penetrate deeper without scarring. Fractional laser treatment takes about 30 minutes to complete, depending on the size and location of the treated area. Some patients may choose to target individual areas of the face, while others seek treatment for the entire face.
After treatment, patients may experience mild swelling and redness that will subside after five to seven days when a new layer of skin forms over the treated area. The results of fractional non-ablative laser treatment are visible as soon as the skin heals
