What Is Skin Resurfacing?
Lasers have been used for medical purposes for some time and are commonly used for skin resurfacing and treatment of damaged tissue.*
Typically they can be used to selectively heat and affect the epidermal and dermal layers of the skin. This process triggers the body’s healing response and encourages the regeneration of collagen and elastin fibres, resulting in the reduction of damaged tissues as well as improved tone and texture of the skin.*
However all our skin resurfacing treatments here at A New You, we use Fractora lasers. Far exceeding results of other lasers available on the market, Fractora has the ability to deliver targeted bipolar RF energy to various selectable depths in the skin. Impressively achieved without the associated downtime, prolonged redness, and pigmentation drawbacks*.
Mainly used to treat facial problem areas (but also small body areas), Fractora also has the ability to deliver impressive results even on darker skin*.
Fractora laser resurfacing can improve the appearance of:*
- Skin texture
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Depressing scarring (e.g. acne)
- Active acne and open pores
- Epidermal melanin pigmentation
- Superficial vascular lesions
- Scar tissue (including keloid and post-acne scars)
- Stretch marks
- Tone and texture of the skin
What Can I Expect?
Laser resurfacing creates a series of microscopic wounds throughout the epidermal and dermal layers of the skin
The surrounding tissues remain undamaged by the treatment, which enables the affected cells to heal more rapidly.* These cells are replaced with young functional cells, whilst stimulating the regeneration of collagen and elastin fibres.*
The treatment requires no anaesthesia and causes little discomfort. Some redness and warmth may be experienced post-treatment, which usually subsides quickly. The recovery period is approximately five days to one week.*
Treatments would usually be spaced six weeks apart. Results are sometimes visible after one session, however; approximately three to six sessions would be recommended for optimum results.*
