Fractional Non-Ablative Laser
Need to treat age spots, scars, skin discolouration, and other skin imperfections? If you’re one of the many people who suffer from skin problems, you may have already realised by now that skin creams, ointments, or other over-the-counter products are simply not enough. They do not offer immediate results, and if they do, these results are not as long-lasting as you had hoped.
It’s time to visit a cosmetic skin clinic! At Roycroft Medical Centre, we offer a wide range of skin treatments. One of which is the fractional non-ablative laser treatment. Read on to learn more about this.
More about Fractional Non-Ablative Laser Treatment
This treatment is a non-invasive procedure that uses a device to deliver non-ablative laser microbeams for a fractional treatment called micro thermal treatment zone. This procedure safely treats deeper tissues but does not ablate the skin, which allows it to deliver excellent treatment results.
How does it work exactly? When applied onto your skin, the non-ablative laser microbeams heat small columns of the deep skin layers (i.e. the epidermis and dermis). Ablation refers to the process where water in the skin tissue evaporates, thereby removing the top layer of the skin. This often happens in other treatments.
For this one, ablation does not occur, because its laser energy heats your skin tissues in a more specific, controlled way. It goes directly for the layers beneath your skin, treating the problem from there. When the beams reach those layers, it stimulates collagen production and growth.
Think of this treatment as a reset button for your collagen. When there is more collagen in the skin – especially collagen that your skin itself developed – it plumps the skin and reduces wrinkles. It reignites the body's natural healing process which creates new healthy tissues to replace the affected tissues. The result? Healthier, younger-looking skin.
This treatment is excellent for improving skin texture, plumping, reducing wrinkles, shrinking pores, acne scarring, uneven skin tone, and stretchmarks. Micro-Fractional Non-Ablative laser also eliminates fine lines on the upper lip, forehead, and crow’s feet (wrinkles around the eyes.) What’s more, it can also treat sagging skin, enlarged oil glands, and warts.
What You Should Expect During The Treatment
Whatever your reason for visiting Dr. Usha may be, you will definitely be satisfied by the results of this treatment. Here are a few things you can expect for when you avail of fractional non-ablative laser:
Prep time is easy
You should expect a standard preparation, such as a review of your patient history and a physical exam. This is usually done during your initial consultation. Right before the procedure, your skin specialist will also perform a number of pre-treatment steps, such as applying cold gel onto your skin. At Roycroft, we guide you throughout this whole process.
The treatment lasts less than an hour
As with other noninvasive procedures, this treatment is quick. You’re out of the doctor’s office before you know it. There’s also very little downtime involved. You may experience minor discomfort after, but it’s nothing that a few necessary precautionary measures can’t protect you from. You will be advised to stay away from direct sunlight, but you can still go back to work or run your errands immediately after. Dr Usha may also leave you with other important advice, and this will depend on your unique skin condition.
For longer-lasting results, book in multiple sessions
While you may see immediate results after one session, you might want to ensure results that last for half a year to maybe even more than a year. Again, this depends on where your skin is at, and Dr. Usha will design for you a treatment plan that gets you to your goal.
