Deep blemishes, fine line, and wrinkles around the eyes and lips, laxity in the jowls and other skin irregularities can be of significant concern when it comes to keeping skin supple, smooth and silky. Fractional laser technology is among the most effective rejuvenating, ablative lasers available. With less downtime and rapid recovery, in just a few days, you’ll experience tighter, more vibrant, younger-looking skin.
Fractional laser is a fractionated laser resurfacing treatment performed on your skin. By using a breakthrough Erbium or CO2 laser, doctors/technicians can treat many skin irregularities and age-related changes present in both the epidermis and dermis layers of your skin. Such anomalies include fine lines and wrinkles on the face, eyes, and lips, brown pigmentation, uneven skin tone and texture, old acne scars and loose, saggy skin on the face, neck, chest, and hands.
Fractional Laser Skin Therapy works by drilling small, equally spaced, pinpoint-sized channels or columns into the surface of your skin. The channels penetrate deep into the skin to cause renewed skin remodeling on the surface and stimulation of new collagen and elastin deep within the dermis – The ‘Dual Effect.’ Profractional laser is fractionated, meaning that only a fraction of the skin is treated. The intact, untouched skin surrounding the channels assists in rapid healing and recovery post-treatment.
Fractional ablative lasers offer more patient comfort, less swelling(edema), less redness, and less risk of complication than previous, older technology. Recovery is approximately 7-10 days, and results are immediate and longer-term. Your skin will look and feel younger instantly.
Yes, fractional laser not only works to remove surface irregularities such as fine lines, wrinkles, and pigmentation on your skin, but heat energy also reaches deep into the dermis layer where the structural support system of the skin, collagen, and elastin, is located. Heat energy dispersed to this layer naturally tightens the skin without any need for surgery.
When traveling to Hungary for fractional treatment, you don’t need to prepare in any specific way. The most important thing is that you are in good overall health and good spirits. On the day of your treatment, you should allocate a few hours in total for the procedure as there is a pre- and post-treatment resting period.
With Fractional treatment, you need to arrive in Budapest at least two days before the procedure. On the first day, you will have a full consultation with our dermatologist to discuss your issues and desires. After you have finished speaking with the doctor, you will return to your place of accommodation. On your agreed-upon treatment day, you need to return to the clinic at the specified time.
Fractional laser can be combined at the same time with other types of lasers in order to achieve a maximum effect.
Fractional therapy is also a potential follow-up treatment after having a facelift, upper/lower blepharoplasty, brow lift or dermal fillers.
Before starting treatment, we will organize a fully private consultation at the clinic to discuss all your concerns and answer all your questions. You need to start a prescription of Acyclovir at least one day before the procedure and continue the medicine for ten consecutive days.
On the day of the treatment, we will ask you to arrive at the clinic again at the exact time specified. You will meet the doctor, and preparation will begin. Depending on the seriousness of your condition and your pain threshold, you will be given either a local cream anesthetic, IV sedation, or a full deep, general anesthetic. The doctor will discuss this with you at your consultation meeting. In the case of full, general anesthesia, a few blood tests are required beforehand.
Fractional laser treatment can take anywhere from 15-30 minutes, depending on the size of the treated area.
Immediately following the treatment, your face will be red and a bit swollen. It will feel like you have a bad sunburn. The doctor will give you all the post-treatment instructions and give you a cream to keep your face moist and protected from the sun. You must avoid direct sunshine for at least three months following the procedure. Always wear an SPF30 sunblock.
