FRACTIONAL LASER RESURFACING
Fractional laser resurfacing is used to improve the appearance of the skin. The laser is used to send pulses of high-energy light to the skin to remove layer by layer of the skin. This encourages the growth of new skin that replaces the old damaged skin.
At Christell, we provide very precise Fractional laser resurfacing, ensuring that only the damaged skin is removed, and the surrounding good skin is not harmed.
It is one of the most recommended treatments for advanced skin damage, wrinkling, and scars. The effects of this treatment are similar to several other non-invasive treatments combined.
Preparing for the treatment
Discomfort varies with the depth of treatment. At Christell we use a local anesthetic and a sedative to make the procedure comfortable for you.
