What is Fractional Laser?
Fractional Laser is a new generation laser that reduces or eliminates existing deformities without causing any excessive reaction in the treatment area. Although numerous methods are used in the treatment of wound, burn, cut, acne scars, facial and neck wrinkles, skin rejuvenation, and stretch marks (cracks), fractional laser treatment has come to the forefront in recent years.
The top layer of the skin is peeled off by increasing the temperature of the skin and providing evaporation with fractional laser. With fractional laser, laser beams are delivered to the problematic skin at intervals by being filtered. Healing of the wound on the skin induced by fractional laser in a controlled manner occurs as a result of the proliferation of undamaged cells around the laser area. Fractional laser provides skin rejuvenation, skin resurfacing, tightening of the pores, reduction in scars and spots on the skin, and increase in skin quality.
