The fractional laser is used for skin rejuvenation, treatment of fine lines and wrinkles and skin resurfacing. Additionally, it is used for treatment of scars and stretch marks.
This treatment creates micro-coagulation columns – ca. 100 to 1 cm², in the deeper layers of the skin without damage to the top layer of skin. And so, there are no visible wounds and no significant downtime for the patient. The micro-injuries to the skin’s tissue leads to stimulation of collagen synthesis. Just after several sessions, usually spaced 4 weeks apart, there is noticeable improvement in skin structure of the treated area.
Improvement can usually be seen already after the second session. As collagen growth takes time, the full effect and end results usually need about three months after the last session.
