Fractional resurfacing is a modern laser technology of dermabrasion, namely abrading the skin surface. After resurfacing, the skin is rejuvenated, firmer, and healthier, has a unified color and texture and also leads to stimulating the production of new collagen - the skin is younger. The procedure has maximum effect in case of removal of scars after acne, hyperpigmentation, porous skin, dark circles under the eyes and fine superficial wrinkles.
Fractional laser resurfacing is the latest trend in non-surgical rejuvenating treatments. Fractional technology causes only a partial ablation - removal of skin surface which ensures faster healing of the surrounding undamaged areas of skin.
In contrast to other lasers, the fractional CO2 laser can treat not only the face but also the skin of neck, decollete, arms, hands or even breasts.
The procedure can be implemented in the form of micro peeling – refresh of the face or classical resurfacing.
- Scars after acne
- Hyperpigmentation of the skin
- Fine surface wrinkles
- Skin with pores and oily skin
- Circles and wrinkles under the eyes
- Rejuvenating of dehydrated (wrinkled) and aging skin, when we talk about non-invasive resurfacing – rejuvenating of the skin without the use of a scalpel
A fractional laser is based on a method called fractionated photothermolysis. It covers your skin with thousands of very thin laser beams, which overheat the skin upon impact. Between these points, pieces of intact skin remain, so the whole skin then recovers very quickly.
Anesthetic cream is applied for approximately 60 minutes in targeted part. It numbs the skin for a short time. In case of more sensitive people, the painkillers or sedating medicines can be used as well. After the skin is numbed, the area after the area is gradually treated.
Length of treatment: complete treatment takes about 20-30 minutes and the duration of treatment depends on the size of treated area, the density of the laser beams and the depth of penetration of the beam into the skin
Final effect is in two phases
1st phase: Immediately after the procedure - when the skin is created
2nd phase: Comes after 3-6 months, when the new collagen is being generated - which gives an effect called lifting – elastic skin
The number of treatments is individual and depends on the "start-up" look of the skin – on the depth of scars or wrinkles, the amount and depth of pigmentation, age of the client and of course on the effect that the client wants to achieve. Mostly it is enough to take only one treatment but for better and more significant effect, it is sometimes necessary to take 2 or 3 treatments.
Immediately after the treatment, the skin turns red, the patient feels a burning same as after sunburnt. After the procedure the patient leaves to home care, where he/she treats himself/herself with recommended products. A slight swelling of the skin, particularly around the eyes may appear one or two days after the procedure. Two days after, the dark scab which gradually slough, start to emerge.
This process takes about seven days and the patient should remain at home care at this time. A week after the treatment, the skin is still delicately pink and sensitive to the touch. It is ideal to use protective creams with UV factor. The face makeup can be already applied in this period.
Prvých 24 hodín sa nedotýkajte ošetrovaných oblastí, okrem bežnej hygieny, čistenia pleti a aplikácie odporúčaných krémov s SPF 50+. Tiež sa vyvarujte akejkoľvek fyzickej aktivite.
Návštevu kozmetičky, sauny, solária či aplikáciu botulotoxínu a kyseliny hyalurónovej odporúčame najskôr 2 týždne po ošetrení. Až 3 mesiace po laserovom ošetrení sa vyvarujte priamemu slnečnému žiareniu.
Bežnou reakciou na ošetrenie je vznik začervenania, opuchu, pľuzgierov, popálenín, povrchových rán, chrastičiek, svrbenia, pálenia, pocit citlivosti či bolesti na ošetrovaných miestach, ktorá v prípade bezproblémového hojenia vymizne spontánne do týždňa.
O všetkých nežiadúcich účinkoch pretrvávajúcich dlhšie ako týždeň musí klient informovať svojho ošetrujúceho lekára, ktorý naordinuje potrebnú terapiu. Táto terapia môže v extrémnych prípadoch trvať niekoľko mesiacov.
