Generally speaking, fractional laser treatment is a kind of skin dermabrasion. This treatment enhances look of skin, making complexion more elastic and smooth, reduces scars and highlights discolourations. With the use of laser, skin is removed evenly within a very short period of time. Beam of laser directed at epidermis creates small treatment zones around which new skin cells are produced. Basically, we can distinguish two types of the treatment: non-invasive treatment that works only on epidermis and non-ablative treatment working on mid-layers of skin, which is also more effective. During this “deep” dermabrasion, tiny wounds may be developed as well as one may experience transient bleeding. When the treatment is over, skin is covered with a regenerating cosmetic.

Fractional laser treatment is rather painful. Obviously, pain level depends on individual sensitivity. For that reason, deep dermabrasion treatment has to be performed only after application of an anaesthetise cream. When it comes to the non-invasive treatment, it is completely painless. After fractional laser treatment, skin requires approximately a week to recover. The ultimate outcomes are obtained after around a month, which is strictly connected with repair of collagen fibres.

Worth mentioning, skin may be swollen and covered with redness, scars, discolourations as well as ruggedness of complexion may be visible right after undergoing fractional laser treatment. Those effects disappear after more or less five days. During that time, it is advised to avoid sunbathing. Moreover, it is recommended to moisturise skin for two weeks. As soon as fortnight passes, a person can get back to the everyday face skin care s/he prefers.

Obviously, fractional laser treatment is connected with several contraindications such as inflammations of skin, breastfeeding, pregnancy, cancers and fresh suntan. This treatment helps with looking younger, conducting laser eyelid correction, removing scars and wrinkles, evening skin tone, removing stretching scars, smoothing skin or improving skin’s density.
