Fractional lasers provide an overall skin improvement. This treatment can be used for skin rejuvenation and (acne) scars. The laser provides a finer skin structure and an even color, by accelerating the skin renewal process. Fractional lasers ensure a maximum result that can be achieved in the field of skin rejuvenation through laser therapy.
The treatments are performed with the:
- Fractional / non-fractional Erbium- YAG 2940 nm (ablative)
- Youlaser MT Fractional Co2 10600 nm and the Erbium-Glass 1540 nm (ablative)
- Youlaser MT Fractional Erbium- Glass 1540 nm (non-ablative)
Operation of the fractional lasers
A fractional laser reacts to the water in the skin cells and creates many tiny holes of heat beams deep in the skin through evaporation. This stimulates the new production of collagen (building block of the skin). This collagen production ensures more firmness of the skin. The heat from the laser causes tissue shrinkage, which will make the skin have a finer texture and improve blood flow. This gives the skin a more even color and a fresher appearance. Due to the increased collagen production, the skin aging process of the skin is slowed down.
The laser works fractionated, that is to say that part of the skin is treated per laser pulse. So-called microbeams, holes are made in the skin. Skin tissue remains between the holes. This intact skin helps the tiny holes heal faster through the production of new skin cells. In this way, the treatment is safe and controlled and the skin repairs in a few days.
Sometimes the laser is used partially unfractionated to reduce irregular relief differences in the skin (for example, lines or scars).
At Huid & Laser Utrecht we are specialized in the field of skin improvement and we have several fractional lasers, so we can always offer a tailor-made treatment. The fractional Youlaser MT is the latest, unique laser that combines the Co2 and Erbium-Glass laser for the best results in skin rejuvenation and acne scars. It creates a fine skin structure, skin tightening, the fading of scars and an even complexion. The heat activates collagen and elastin to make the skin smoother, firmer and firmer.
During the treatment, the skin is numbed with cold air. This laser tackles both the surface of your skin, but also the deeper skin layers at the same time.
Ablative and non-ablative
We work with ablative and non-ablative lasers. Ablative means that the epidermis flakes and the recovery time lasts 3-5 days. Non-ablative means that the top layer of skin remains intact, the skin will only be red and the recovery time is only one day. The Erbium-Glass laser is non-ablative and is combined with a mild peeling for optimal results.
During the consultation, the skin therapist will assess which fractional laser is most suitable, sometimes a combination is the best option.
Skin conditions that can be treated with the fractional lasers are:
- Skin aging
- Acne scars
- Pigmented spots
- Red acne scars
Start with the right products before the laser treatments
You start the treatment at least 2-6 weeks before the peeling with the Dermaceutic home products. These products ensure that the optimal result can be achieved. The products also ensure that the skin heals safely and faster. In addition to products, 1 or 2 TCA peels can be used as pretreatment. A TCA peel improves the skin, making a fractional laser more effective. The products below are advised:
- Dermaceutic Foamer 5/15
- Dermaceutic Turn Over or Light Ceutic night cream
- Dermaceutic Retinol 0.5 or 1.0
