There are two types of laser treatment – ablative which has significant side effects and has a long healing period and non-ablative, which is very much milder and has a quick recovery time, but the downside is that many treatments are normally needed to achieve a satisfactory result.

Fraxel® Laser Treatment offers a safe non-invasive procedure that gives the results achieved by ablative lasers, with the gentleness assoicated with a non-ablative lasers.

It is approved by the FDA and is designed to treat ageing and damaged skin. By causing microscopic “wounds” that penetrate deep beneath the skin’s outermost layer, the body is stimulated to produce new collagen and skin cells. The procedure treats old epidermal pigment cells, without affecting any of the surrounding tissue. Because the process is relatively gentle, healing is rapid and there is very little downtime for patients, in fact many patients are able to apply make-up immediately following the procedure.?Three to five treatments are recommended at 2- 4 week intervals, results can be seen immediately and are accumulative, optimal improvement is usually visible after about 2 to 3 months. This time frame and treatment structure allows for complete healing and replacement of damaged tissue with new collagen and elastin, and viable healthy skin cell growth.

Conditions that can be improved:

      • Melasma
      • Pigmentation
      • Improvement of skin texture and pore size
      • Ageing and Sundamaged Skin
      • Wrinkles
      • Acne Scarring
