Laser Skin Treatment
How does fractional skin resurfacing work?
Minute sections of the skin are targeted with laser light, which penetrates into the tissue, causing small columns of thermal damage which in turn stimulates significant collagen renewal. The surrounding non-affected areas of skin aid the body’s natural recovery process, allowing dramatic results without significant downtime.

Are there any side effects?
Skin redness, swelling and the bronzing appearance described above are all expected outcomes of treatment. Other unwanted effects are rare but can include a small blister or temporary change to skin pigmentation, such as a darkening of the skin.
How is the treatment carried out?
The skin is cleansed and the handpiece is moved over the skin delivering tiny microscopic laser beams. Typical treatment times vary depending on the skin condition and the area being treated, but will range from 10 to 40 minutes. After treatment the skin is cooled. Protective eyewear must be worn during treatment.
How does the treatment feel?
A warm, heating sensation is felt during treatment, with some mild stinging. After treatment the skin can be quite hot and so cooling packs are often utilised to minimise discomfort.
