• What is fractional laser resurfacing?

    Fractional laser treatment works by creating destruction in the dermal layer with little epidermal disruption. This process stimulates new collagen and elastin production with minimal downtime.

  • How long is the treatment?

    The entire treatment will take approximately 10~20 minutes.

  • Is the treatment painful?

    Topical numbing cream is applied prior to the treatment for about 30~60 minutes. During the treatment, cold air will be blown over the treated sites. Most people are able to tolerate the laser with minimal discomfort.

  • How many treatments are required?

    Depending on individual, scar location, scar depth and skin type, the number of treatments can range from 5~10 sessions spaced about 1~2 months apart.

  • Is there any downtime?

    Depending on the laser settings, it may vary from 3~7 days. The face will look red right after the laser treatment and tiny dot-like scabs will form on the treated areas after about 2~3 days. It is advisable to minimise sun exposure and apply sunblock daily on the treated area.
