Fractional laser scar removal is a non-invasive technique that encourages your body to replace scarred, aged and sun damaged skin. It is not ablative, which means the laser energy passes through the top layers of skin without damaging them to treat the deeper layers. The treatment is safe and gradual and gives positive results with little recovery time. It is a good choice for people who want scars removed but don’t have the time to take a long recovery.

This type of laser scar removal is revolutionary because it does not treat the entire skin surface; it only treats a fraction of the skin’s surface, which allows the skin to heal itself. Along with removing acne and other types of scars, fractional laser therapy also treats:

• Sun-damaged skin and fine wrinkles on the face, neck, chest, back, arms, legs and hands
• Surgical scars
• Some types of melasma
• Fine lines around the eyes and eyelids
• Precancerous lesions

When you consult with our specialist, your skin issues will be examined and you can discuss your expectations. It usually takes a series of four to eight treatments to achieve optimum results. A topical anesthetic may be applied to the treatment area, but there is very little discomfort and minimal risk.

Fractional laser scar removal can also be performed along with other cosmetic treatments, but you may need to wait a few weeks in between treatment sessions. Our specialist will provide you with information about combining treatments. Many people see results about a week after the first treatment, but to get the optimum results it may take a few treatments. The number you will personally need will depend on factors such as the depth of your scar. Some issues require the full treatment series before results are seen. Collagen will continue to develop for three to six months after the last treatment.

Fractional laser scar removal is a safe, effective, non-invasive way to remove sun damage, acne and other scars. It stimulates collagen development in the deep layers of skin without damaging the surface layers. Your skin naturally grows smoother without dark spots, fine wrinkles or scars.
