What is the Fractional Laser
Fractional Laser is laser in which its beam is fragmented into many smaller diameter beams, with gap in between. The skin ultimately suffers much less damage than any other laser with fast recovery period.
This is explained by the fact that 50-60% of the skin surface interacts with the laser, while the adjacent skin remains intact. In this way, healing in patients receiving Fractional Laser therapy is much faster compared to other Laser methods. At the same time, the Fractional Laser is the only laser that achieves substantial regeneration of the skin.
Fractional laser minimum ablative and ablative modes
Fractional lasers are divided into two groups: ablatives and min-ablatives, depending on their effect on the skin and the depth they operate.
- Ablative fractional lasers reach different penetration depths, depending on the type of laser. Their effect penetrates from the surface into the epidermis, while exfoliating the skin layer by layer.
- Fractional min-ablative lasers act directly on the dermis on micron meters, facilitating the renewal of collagen, without affecting the superficial layers of the epidermis.
The results of fractional Er Yag laser resurfacing are much better than those of other lasers. The recovery of patients is faster and more comfortable than for procedures with CO2 fractional lasers.

Fractional Laser treatment is applied primarily in cases of scars and acne scars. Through this method, it is possible to regenerate and tighten the skin and eliminate the stretch marks and scars of any kind. At the same time, the fine lines of the face are treated, painlessly and effectively.
The difference of the Fractional Laser compared to other therapeutic methods The innovation of the Fractional Laser compared to older Lasers, is based on the fact that it has accurate targeting, without affecting larger areas. Fractional Laser is a treatment method that is applied individually on any skin. In fact, it is suitable for skins that have been suffered from the sun or acne and can often be applied as a preventive treatment to younger people.
Clinical results of Fractional Laser treatment The treatment is painless and fast, without side effects. The results become immediately visible from the very first session and improve as the days go by. The skin is regenerated, wrinkles and blemishes are reduced, photoaging is corrected and scars and freckles are eliminated.
Of course, the possibility of mild redness and swelling in the area is increased, but it subsides within 1-2 days. The recovery time required is minimal and it is a skin-friendly method because it does not interfere with the surrounding tissues.
It should be noted that after the treatment it is necessary to avoid exposure to sunlight for a few weeks, while even after this period of time sunscreen is recommended.
Each facial rejuvenation that is applied is not only an aesthetic, but mainly a medical operation with appropriate medical protocols. The treatment protocols are customized, depending on the gender, age, medical history and patient needs. In this way, the best possible results are achieved.
