What is fractional laser treatment?
At Skin Perfection, we are proud to use the latest in laser skin resurfacing technology. This is why we treat patients with the Palomar Lux 1540, which is an FDA-cleared fractional laser.
Whereas CO2 lasers remove the outer layer of the skin, the Palomar laser is non-ablative. This means there is no harm to the surface of the skin, but rather the laser heats cells within the dermal layers of the skin.
The fractional laser emits thousands of tiny beams. By doing this, it causes micro injuries that stimulate the skin’s natural healing process. It also encourages the production of collagen, which keeps the skin supple and flexible. Not to mention, it helps to plump up the skin and smooth out lines and wrinkles.
Not sure about using anti-wrinkle injections? Fractional laser can be a great alternative treatment for lines and wrinkles. It has the added benefit of being able to treat under and around the eye area. This is something injectable treatments are not able to do.
What are the benefits of fractional laser?
Fractional laser skin resurfacing helps to improve the overall look and feel of your skin. It stimulates the skin’s renewal process, which targets the common signs of ageing, while also reducing the effects of stress and pollution on the skin. Its main benefits include;
- Smoothing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- Improving overall skin tone and texture
- Reducing scarring including post-surgical scarring and acne scarring
- Shrinking stretch marks
- Skin tightening
You will start to notice an improvement in the tone and texture of your skin from your first treatment. Although you may require a course of treatments to achieve optimal results from fractional laser.
Is fractional laser painful?
During this laser skin resurfacing treatment, you will feel small, hot pin pricks. To help keep any discomfort to a minimum, numbing cream can be applied to the skin first.
You may experience a small amount of redness and swelling following your treatment. This is normal and we provide you with cooling packs to help reduce this before you leave the clinic.
If you’re having treatment under or around the eye area, swelling may last for a few days. Any redness that appears can also take longer to fade. This can take 7-14 days to subside.
Will I need a patch test?
Yes, a patch test is needed to assess your skin type and suitability for treatment. It also helps to ensure that you will respond positively to laser treatment.
How long does it take to see results?
The results of your laser resurfacing treatment should start to show a week after your first session. To achieve optimal results, it’s likely you will need around three to five sessions of treatment. This will be discussed at your consultation, where our practitioner will help to develop a treatment plan tailored to your needs.
After your final treatment, you will continue to see improvements for up to six months. This gives your skin cells time to regenerate and new collagen to be built.
Each patient will respond differently to laser treatment. Our practitioner will recommend products to build into your skin care routine. This is to help your results last as long as possible. Check out some of the results our patients have achieved here.
How much does it cost?
The total cost of your laser treatment will depend on the size of the area being treated and the number of sessions required to achieve the desired result.
As an example, treatment for lines and wrinkles around the eyes (crow’s feet) starts at £192 per session. For a course of four treatments (recommended for new patients), this starts at £154 per treatment session.
Treat multiple skin conditions with laser
Are you suffering from pigmentation, broken veins and sun damaged skin? Would you like to combat these skin conditions while also reducing lines and wrinkles? Well, our ThreeForMe treatment could be the answer.
ThreeForMe is an advanced treatment that combines laser skin resurfacing with photo facial rejuvenation. It targets three skin conditions in one, so you can combat wrinkles, sun damage and broken veins at once. As a result, you can say goodbye to tired looking skin and hello to a brighter, younger looking you.
