Fractional Lasers: a 3D Treatment


Q: How long does it take?
A: 5 - 10 minutes to cover most of the face.

Q: Is it painful?
A: We apply a numbing cream 25 minutes prior to the procedure & use an air Chiller during the procedure to minimise discomfort.

Q: What is the down time?
A: Microscabs will form within minutes that takes 4 days to drop off. It is important to avoid sun exposure for at least a week after. (See fig. 2)

How many treatments are necessary?
A: Each treatment will give you a mild to moderate & permanent improvement. An average of 4 treatments are recommended at least 3 weeks apart, (see before & after pics below)

Any side effects?
A: Usually none. However, temporary pigmentation may result especially in case of sun exposure (seen in less than 5% of cases). This clears in around 8 weeks.
