Fractional Laser


Fractional laser is a non-invasive treatment that targets a fraction of the skin at a time. It delivers a laser beam divided into thousands of microscopic treatment zones to stimulate collagen production to rejuvenate the skin. The device is glided across the areas being treated delivering laser energy as it is moved along. This creates thousands of pinpoint holes in a random pattern. The laser heats pinpoint areas while leaving the surrounding tissue untouched. The heat triggers long-term collagen production in the skin.

Ideal candidates want to treat fine lines, wrinkles, acne, acne scars, freckles and mild to moderate folds. The procedure is also suitable for patients who want to improve the tone and texture of the skin.

The typical cost ranges from $1500-$5000. The final cost depends on the number of treatments undergone, the severity of the condition treated, surgical facility fees, the surgeon’s level of expertise and the geographic location of the procedure.

The procedure rejuvenates the skin and restores radiance. The time needed for recovery depends on the area treated and the severity of the condition. Recovery for facial treatments takes 3-5 days while recovery for neck or chest treatments takes longer. After the treatment, patients may experience mild redness, swelling and bruising. The results continue to improve over the next 2-3 months. Final results last for 1-3 years depending on how much exposure to sunlight the skin gets and if the aftercare routine is followed.

Halo hybrid fractional laser is a skin laser that delivers ablative and non-ablative wavelengths of laser energy at the same time. Ablative lasers, like CO2 and Erbium, vaporize the outer skin layers to effectively resurface and rejuvenate the skin. Non-ablative technologies like Fraxel laser are1
