Fractional technology is a benchmark for efficiency and comfort in laser resurfacing procedures. Fractional resurfacing consists of the emission of tiny laser energy beams that penetrate into the skin in the form of thermal columns all the way to the dermis while leaving untreated tissue in-between them.
Laser energy is deposited into the tissue with a pattern of random shots which alternate areas treated by laser with those of intact skin. This provides for a faster recovery and tissue regeneration and is a virtually painless treatment.
These thermal microcolumns treat the dermis superficially and also in-depth, reaching the underlying layers of the dermis and stimulating collagen formation. In addition, this mechanism allows for individualized treatments, adapting them to the needs of each patient.
