Fractional Laser Re-surfacing

We use a Carbon Dioxide Fractional Laser, which is widely considered the ‘Gold Standard’ for Fractional Lasers.

It can be used for

  • Pigment problems
  • Sun Damaged Skin
  • Fine Lines and Wrinkles
  • Loose Skin around the Eyes
  • Open Pores
  • Acne Scars
  • Deep Lines and Wrinkles
  • Raised Moles
  • Solar Keratosis
  • Seborrhoeic Warts

It works by damaging the skin with thousands of miniscule burns, like the pixels in a camera, with each of these tiny areas of damage stimulating repair. The strength of the treatment will depend on the severity of the problem being treated, which will also influence the recovery period expected.

The more severely damaged skin may require a number of treatments, with the timing of treatments dependant of the recovery period expected. The procedure is carried out with full local anaesthetic cover.

The improvement is gradual over a 6month period, although the skin tightening around the eyes occurs quite quickly. This area is very popular, particularly with patients who want to avoid surgery at all costs.
