Fractional laser skin resurfacing

at Dr Deborah McManners’ clinic

Fractional non-ablative laser skin resurfacing is an advanced treatment that helps to reduce lines and wrinkles, acne scarring, stretch marks and improve the appearance of sun-damaged skin.* Its next-generation technology, efficacy and proven safety record make this treatment an ideal match for Dr McManners’ expertise.

The treatment works by delivering fractional laser energy below the epidermis into the dermis. Micro-beams of laser energy target treatment areas to create columns of heat within the skin. This triggers the body’s natural healing response resulting in the production of new collagen and thickening of the dermis. This fractional non–ablative approach stimulates quick healing in the dermis for effective long-term results including healthier, plumper, more youthful-looking skin.*

Your questions answered

  1. What does fractional laser skin resurfacing involve?

    This innovative technology delivers a large number of micro-dots of laser energy per square centimetre of skin treated. It does not wound or remove any skin (non-ablative). The energy creates narrow, deep columns of tissue coagulation into the skin’s deeper layers. This process is known as fractional photothermolysis which prompts the production of new collagen.* The fractional laser is applied via a hand-held device.

  2. Why have you chosen this particular technology?

    The fractional laser skin resurfacing that we use delivers greater energy per microbeam with more penetration (up to 1mm) than peer/competing devices. This stimulates quick healing within the surrounding deep tissue for more effective skin correction and long-term collagen remodelling.*

  3. How many treatments will I need?

    This does depend on any specific skin concerns and rejuvenation aims, but most patients have up to 3 to 5treatments for the best potential results. Maintenance treatment sessions can help to maintain collagen production and improvement in skin quality.

  4. Does the treatment hurt?

    The laser technology has an advanced cooling feature which also reduces any discomfort. Most patients experience a mild prickling and/or warm sensation.*

  5. What should I expect after treatment?

    Skin may appear flushed and pink but most of our patients are able to carry on with normal life immediately after the treatment.* It’s important to use a sunscreen of SPF 25 to 50.

  6. Are there any side effects?

    Side effects are rare but can include mild swelling, redness and skin flaking.*

“I have seen some wonderful long-term results with fractional laser skin resurfacing. I started with a course of 4 treatments which really helped to reduce lines on my forehead. I have a top-up treatment every few months to maintain the results.”
