Fractionated laser is a skin resurfacing and re-texturing laser treatment designed to stimulate collagen and elastin production and prevent the signs of ageing. It is an effective treatment for skin rejuvenation as it smooths fine lines and wrinkles, improves the appearance of pigmentation, skin tone, sun damaged skin, and is especially effective in treating stretch marks and acne scarring.
Fractionated Laser creates millions of microchannels in the deeper layers of the dermis and replaces damaged skin with healthy tissue resulting in a younger, rejuvenated complexion.
