How does Fractional Lasers work?

An invisible beam of laser of laser which is absorbed by water is used. The beam is used to wound the underlying collagen tissue of the skin to initiate healing all over again. The laser beam therefore passes through the outer layer to reach the underlying collagen tissue. The laser beam only wounds a microscopic area of the collagen to initiate the healing process. The cells found adjacent to the wound start the process of cell division to heal the wound.

After the treatment, cold packs are used to keep the skin cool to avoid discomfort. The whole treatment procedure takes about 30 minutes with the use of anaesthesia before the start of the treatment. Sunburn feeling which lasts about half an hour maybe experienced after the anaesthesia used wears off. This feeling can be relieved through cool compresses on the area treated.

Three similar treatments which are 1-3 months apart are required to treat the scar completely. This process is effective because it provides ease of treatment with minimal or no discomfort.

The Possible Complications after Laser Treatment
