Fractional Laser technology was introduced to bring results comparable to a traditional fully ablative resurfacing procedure but without the associated prolonged downtime.
The Lynton Fractional 2940nm resurFACE Laser handpiece targets minute sections of the skin with laser light, which creates microscopic holes in the top-most layers of the skin. Immediate collagen shrinkage makes the skin appear tighter, and long-term stimulation of fibroblasts produce new collagen over the following months.
The surrounding, non-affected areas of skin facilitate faster healing; aiding the body’s natural recovery process, giving dramatic results without the significant downtime associated with traditional ablative laser procedures.
Fractional skin rejuvenation is not a substitute for surgery or fully ablative laser treatments. It is however appropriate for people with sun-damaged or congested skin or those with dyschromia or mild scarring. It can reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles, acne scars, and improve elasticity and promote a more even skin tone.
- Photo-damaged skin: Roughened, thickened skin, with an uneven tone, large pores, excessive secretion of sebum, and loss of elasticity
- Congested skin
- Mild scarring: Acne scars, surgical scars, traumatic scars, and stretch marks
- Mild, static wrinkles
- Total skin rejuvenation of facial and non-facial areas
