What is a non-ablative fractional laser?
This minimally invasive treatment improves skin texture, softens wrinkles, and smoothens scars. The treatment uses the laser to heat deep layers of the skin and stimulate new collagen without affecting the surrounding tissue. This regenerative procedure stimulates the body’s natural wound healing response without scarring.
Non-ablative fractional laser is a safe and effective way to improve many different skin conditions such as:
- Scarring (including acne scarring)
- Fine Lines and wrinkles
- Uneven skin texture
The true result of your non-ablative fractional treatment will be apparent approximately 3 – 6 months post-treatment as your skin regenerates and continues to produce new collagen and elastin. Most clients report an improvement in their skin texture and clarity within a 6 – 8 week period, this improvement is compounded after each consecutive treatment. Multiple treatments are required.
A thorough skin consultation with your Skin Clinician is required prior to treatment and appropriate skin preparation is essential to include optimal results. This may include a prescribed cosmeceutical homecare plan and in-clinic treatments.
Following your laser treatment, your skin will experience a mild inflammatory response resulting in your skin feeling warm and appearing flushed in a similar way to moderate sunburn; this is normal and generally subsides within 24 – 48 hours. You may incorporate Healite LED treatments to assist with any inflammation post-treatment and increase recovery time.
