We are born with young, delicate and smooth skin, but over time – age, heredity and gravity work against its perfection. Excessive sun exposure, the appearance of acne,smoking and other factors also disrupt the healthy appearance of the skin. Fine and more pronounced wrinkles, pigment spots, scars and lack of elasticity become more and more visible. The complexion darkens and the skin loses its radiance and vitality.
The creation of the fractionated laser and the procedure – laser fractional peel, which combines the advantages of ablative laser resurfacing and non-ablative therapies significantly increased the possibilities for effective rejuvenation in a short time. The fractional laser performs a controlled process of precise renewal of the skin’s superficial and deep structural elements by harnessing the body’s natural healing powers to form new, young cells and build and gently remodel collagen.
The fractional laser emits thousands of micro beams that penetrate the epidermis, penetrate deep into the dermis and form microscopic columns of tissue coagulation called microthermal zones /MTZ’s/. The energy of the microbeams perform ablation in the micro impact zones in the dermis, where old collagen and excess pigment are thermally impacted to be destroyed and fibroblasts are stimulated to form new collagen fibers.
The microthermal areas are surrounded by healthy tissue that remains intact as the skin is treated in small “portions” selectively. As a result of this process, new, youthful and active skin without aesthetic flaws appears at the site of the treated areas. The “fractionated” treatment shortens recovery time tremendously compared to traditional laser resurfacing, where the entire skin surface is treated at once.
Fractional laser resurfacing is a revolutionary breakthrough – a perfect combination of efficacy, safety and minimal recovery time that erases the traces of time. It is one of the most successful methods for treating acne scars, oily and acneic skin, removing superficial pigmentation and evening the complexion. For indications such as age-related changes and photo damage, fractional laser resurfacing is the perfect anti-aging treatment not only for the face, but also for areas such as the neck, décolletage, hands, the delicate area around the eyes, etc. The improvement in skin condition, turgor and elasticity is immediate and progresses over time – it looks softer, smoother, fresher and firmer.
The effect can be seen after the first treatment, but a series of three or four treatments are usually recommended, repeated every 3-4 weeks depending on the depth of the peel and the condition of the skin. Final improvements are revealed 2 – 3 months after the last treatment is completed. Side effects are minimal and are usually limited to sunburn-like redness, mild swelling, burning and a feeling of tightness that subside within a few days. The use of a moisturizing and epithelizing product aids recovery, and the use of an SPF 50 photoprotector is mandatory for a longer period of time.
The procedure is performed by qualified dermatologists after a precise consultation.
