Fractional Laser targets and delivers laser energy into the deeper layers of the skin as thousands of tiny and deep columns, also called microthermal treatment zones or MTZ.
MTZ helps to remove old pigmented cells and promotes collagen remodelling while keeping the healthy issues intact and unaffected. The damaged layer of the skin will then be “peeled away”, thereby allowing the healthy layers underneath to emerge.
The laser activates the deep microthermal treatment zones or MTZ which help remove old pigmented cells.
The penetration of the laser beam into the different layers result in collagen remodelling on all layers, forming new collagen for the skin.
Compared to the CO2 laser treatment for acne scars, the Erbium laser that we use allows your skin to heal faster, usually one week.
- Lightened appearance of scarring
- Deep collagen remodelling
- Faster healing time
Let New Skin Emerge.
The procedure typically requires about an hour, depending on the surface areas of your underarms.
Before the treatment, our therapist will gently cleanse the areas to be treated. After that, protective eye goggles will be placed on you.
Our doctor will perform the treatment by first using a hand piece that delivers the fractionated laser energy over your face. It feel like a tingling sensation on your skin that is noticeable but not painful with the cooling air blowing on it.
A daily moisturizer and sunblock are applied to soothe and protect your skin post-treatment. The entire procedure takes less than 15 minutes.
The skin may appear pink or red for an average of 20 – 30 minutes. You can resume normal activities i.e go to work, have meals, shower etc.
