Fractional laser

Description of the procedure::

Resurfacing is a laser method of regenerating the skin on the face by removing its outer layer with a laser beam. The results of resurfacing are smoothing out wrinkles and scars, skin tension and the effect of rejuvenation. This method uses the so-called ablation lasers, here the FOTONA DUALIS erbium-YAG laser with a fractional tip. This laser gently removes the outer layers of the skin and regenerates the epidermis.

It can be used to treat scars after smallpox or acne, to even out deeper wrinkles or callous epidermis or to remove discolouration and to even out skin tone. It is exceptional for smoothing out wrinkles around the eyes, lion’s wrinkles and wrinkles on the upper lip. It can help to get rid of the drooping skin of the eyelids, neck, cleavage or cheeks.

The treatment involves the impact of thousands of laser beams on the skin. There is a strong overheating of the skin in the affected area. The outer layer is removed. The remaining layers of the skin get under the influence of heat. The heat effect helps in removing the cells that are responsible for the ageing. The heat also causes the collagen fibres to be pulled off, which allows proper skin tension and ensures the production of collagen, which takes place from 3 to 6 months after the procedure.

There are places on the skin that the laser rays do not reach. In these “islets” of the skin, which are not subjected to heat treatment, the treated epidermis is regenerated, new skin cells and bonds are formed. They form the basis for the regeneration of the epidermis in the treated area. This device enables mild, medium or deep resurfacing, depending on the patient’s needs.

If you have problems with the keratinized epidermis of the face skin, wrinkles, enlarged pores, smallpox scars or acne, discolouration. It is worth planning this revolutionary resurfacing treatment.


The appearance of the effects of the treatment takes place in two stages – relatively quickly because, after a few days, you can notice the skin tone alignment, the discolouration disappears, the skin becomes “luminous”. There is an improvement in skin density in 4-5 weeks.

The laser produces from several dozen to several hundred tiny damaged columns, which are surrounded by healthy skin that is not exposed to the laser. This causes the skin to regenerate very quickly, stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, thicken the complexion, and also produces controlled skin heating, which strengthens the effect of rejuvenation.

Post-treatment recommendations::

After the treatment, redness and swelling appear. The skin looks like after exaggerated tanning in the sun, with all visible ailments for this condition. Redness usually goes away after 3 – 5 days, swelling intensifies after 2 days. It disappears after 3 – 4 days. In the next stage, the skin may slightly darken (brown) and begin to exfoliate. After 7 days, it returns to its normal appearance. Immediately after the treatment, you should not use massages, creams with retinol, peels or rough towels. You should avoid the sun, the solarium, the sauna and the swimming pool.
