Fractional laser is a popular application among laser systems in non-surgical facial rejuvenation and skin renewal. Also known as CO2 Fractional Laser.

Instead of plastic surgery, interest in applications such as fractional carbon dioxide laser, which rejuvenates and tightens the skin without damaging its naturalness, is increasing day by day. Laser skin resurfacing systems are preferred by both skin experts and doctors, as well as women and men who care about their beauty, due to their long-lasting effects.

What is Fractional Laser?

The laser beams of the fractional laser, divided into columns, create slightly damaged areas in columns under the skin. To repair the injured area, the connective tissue automatically increases collagen synthesis. Fractional laser treatment is one of the most advanced skin resurfacing systems that stimulates a natural restructuring process under the skin.

Fractional co2 laser completely renews the skin surface with the effect it creates under the skin, allowing you to have a smooth and glowing skin. It perfectly heals many skin problems that occur due to aging and environmental conditions, such as blemishes, scars, acne scars, and fine wrinkles.

There are two different application methods: Non-ablative Fractional Laser, which works without peeling, and Ablative Fractional Laser, which allows us to achieve deep skin renewal by peeling. The method that suits the skin’s needs is determined by the physician after the examination.

What is Fractional Laser Good for?

The skin surface becomes stained, wrinkled and loses its vitality over time and under the influence of environmental conditions. Acne scars and scars damage the smoothness of the skin and make it difficult to apply make-up. Fractional laser is a laser-assisted anti-blemish skin resurfacing treatment that is useful in such cases that require skin rejuvenation and is good for many skin problems:

  • It is one of the most effective laser applications in skin rejuvenation.
  • It is extremely effective in treating stains.
  • It works wonders in removing stretch marks
  • It is an extremely safe and successful application suitable for all skin types in removing acne and acne scars.
  • Fractional laser is used extensively in the healing of scars, surgical scars, and shallow burn scars.

Fractional Laser Skin Resurfacing 

The main reason for skin aging, sagging and wrinkle formation is collagen production, which gradually decreases due to aging. Fractional laser, which we actively use in skin rejuvenation, wrinkle treatment and skin tightening, allows us to achieve the exact results we want in skin renewal as it triggers high amounts of collagen production.

Fractional Laser Scar Treatment

Do not be bothered by unwanted tissue deformations such as scars and stitch marks from surgical operations. With fractional laser, it is possible to completely get rid of many scars or significantly fade their appearance.

In fractional laser scar treatments performed with a personalized application plan, the number of sessions varies depending on the depth and thickness of the scar and how old or fresh it is.

Fractional Laser Stretch Mark Treatment

We can say that stretch mark treatment ranks first among the skin problems for which we use fractional laser application the most. Fractional laser is the skin resurfacing application with which we obtain the best results in weight gain and loss and in eliminating body stretch marks that occur after birth.

Fractional Laser Acne Scars Treatment

The dimpled or rough skin appearance that we call acne scar bothers many women and men. These scars are usually scars that occur later on skin that suffered intense acne during adolescence.

Fractional laser peels the skin and purifies it from these scars. A silky smooth, fresh skin emerges from under the peeled skin.

Fractional Laser Spot Treatment

One of the first applications that comes to mind when it comes to spot treatment is fractional laser. It is effective on many skin spots such as sun spots, freckles, and melasma, which we call pregnancy spots. At the same time, the fractional laser used in skin whitening is extremely effective in underarm whitening and eliminating dark spots in the genital area.

How is Fractional Laser Made?

Before fractional laser application, the application area is cleaned and anesthetic cream is applied. In this way, it is possible to ensure that the session passes in maximum comfort. Depending on the content and purpose of the treatment, the application is completed in an average of 15 to 30 minutes.

Redness and swelling may occur on the skin after fractional laser. Within a few days, the edema subsides, the redness disappears, and the crusting process begins.

Healing Process After Fractional Laser

Scaling after fractional laser occurs at different depths in each application. It is possible to have a thicker crust in acne scar treatments. In spot treatments, a thinner skin peeling process occurs.

Lighter applications such as skin revitalization and skin tone equalization are fractional laser applications that do not cause peeling, which we call non-ablative.

Fractional Laser Aftercare

It is extremely important that you strictly follow your doctor’s recommendations regarding what to consider after fractional laser in order to get the result we want.

  • Take care to keep the skin moist.
  • Do not manipulate, peel or tear the shells by hand.
  • Do not take a shower with extremely hot water, and take a break from going to the Turkish bath and sauna.
  • Use sunscreen regularly.
  • Do not use concealer during the recovery period.

We would like to leave the first 24 hours behind to take a bath after fractional laser. You can take a warm shower afterwards, but it is especially important to protect your skin from hot and pressurized water.

When Does Fractional Laser Show Its Effect?

Those who have had fractional laser treatment see the effect of the application after the recovery period, but since tissue regeneration and collagen production under the skin continues for a while, your skin continues to rejuvenate and become beautiful after peeling.

Since the healing process of each treatment is different, it would not be correct to answer with an exact time when the fractional laser will show its effect. After the session or protocol is completed, following the peeling and healing process, the effect of the fractional laser begins to be observed.

Fractional Laser Harms

Fractional laser is a natural re-healing process without side effects. It heals the skin by peeling it. This peeling process is not a side effect, but the way the fractional laser works. Following the doctor’s instructions correctly in this process is the trick to leaving the scab removal and healing process behind without any side effects.

In which months is Fractional Laser performed?

The reason why summer months are not preferred for treatments that require deep peeling is to avoid the harmful rays of the sun causing skin blemishes.

Non-ablative fractional laser procedures, which do not peel the skin, can be applied in all seasons, but it is necessary to protect the skin from the sun more carefully than ever. Spring and winter months are better times for fractional laser applications for purposes such as acne scar, scar and blemish treatment. It is useful to remind once again that you should not forget to use sunscreen after the procedure, even if it is winter.

Fractional Laser Prices

Fractional laser is a versatile application that we use for many purposes such as facial rejuvenation, acne scar treatment, blemish treatment, and the price varies because the protocol content changes in each treatment.

The price of fractional laser stretch mark treatment, which we apply for at least four sessions, is not the same as the price of a single-session skin renewal protocol. To get detailed price information and make an appointment, please contact us.
