Fractional Laser (Erbium not CO2 Laser) is a non-invasive treatment used to minimize facial lines and wrinkles, sun damage, skin pigmentation, stretch marks reduction, and acne scar treatment. This treatment targets both the epidermis, the surface of the skin, and the dermis, the mid-layer of the skin. Other laser treatments can target only either the epidermis or the dermis. At Lucie MediSpa, we use cutting edge fractional laser treatment technology to make sure we deliver the high quality skin treatment you deserve. We perform a pre-treatment assessment and preparation to ensure a more effective application of fractional laser.
This procedure is perfect for those individuals seeking any or a combination of the following:
Acne scar treatment
Stretch marks reduction
Scarring as a result from burns or surgical procedures.
The following is a list of benefits individuals can expect to experience after their Fractional Laser treatment:
Treats sun spots, acne scars, large pores, and hyperpigmentation, thick or excessively dry skin, uneven skin tone, fine lines and wrinkle reduction.
The ability to treat and target more than just one skin issue at the same time.
An overall younger and healthier complexion of the skin being treated.
Safe to use on all skin types and patient profiles.
Relatively non-invasive, with minimal down time.
Laser resurfacing, also known as a laser peel, is the perfect non-surgical choice for those looking to safely and effectively repair damaged skin while stimulating new collagen growth. This tool is the leading resurfacing solution for wrinkle reduction and skin imperfections caused by acne scarring, burns, trauma to the skin and surgical scars.
Our revolutionary Erbium laser produces a micro epidermal peel, which through a thermo-mechanical reaction, removes the problematic areas on the top layer of the skin. The fresh layer that grows has an improved texture, reduced or disappeared rhytids, wrinkles, acne scarring and spots and an overall renewed radiance. An array of micro beams, producing a spatial pattern of dots array, rather than one single dot. In Fractional mode, the Erbium laser only effects small islets of tissue, while tissues in-between these islets remain intact. In this mode, deeper tissue ablation can be achieved, as well as quicker re-epithelialization, leading to shorter healing times, unlike the CO2 Laser. A topical numbing cream is applied to the entire treatment area before the session begins. This helps to enhance the comfort level of the client during the procedure.
In the first day following your fractional laser treatment or laser peel, you will experience redness on the treated areas, however this will subside within 24 hours. A laser peel will result in mild to moderate skin surface peeling (hence the name laser resurfacing), anywhere between two and four days following your Erbium laser treatment.
The results of laser resurfacing will vary from person to person, however we expect the best results to appear 3-4 weeks following the procedure. Whether you’re coming for acne scar treatment or stretch marks reduction, clients can expect to need more than one treatment session.
