The Lumenis® Photofractional™ laser treatment is a complete skin rejuvenation solution, enabling your provider to offer you remarkable results on a range of skin aging concerns such as age and sun spots, vascular lesions, uneven texture and skin tone. Our unique rejuvenation technology includes two solutions, IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) and ResurFX™ non-ablative skin resurfacing, so that both skin tone and texture can be treated at the same session.
By using both IPL and ResurFX™ technologies, both skin pigmentation and texture can be treated at the same session. Lumenis® IPL technology removes both unwanted pigmentation and blood vessels from the skin, while the ResurFX™ fractional laser stimulates the production of new collagen and elastic fibers in the deeper layers of the skin. Stimulating new collagen production is the key to a more radiant, youthful looking skin.
Immediately following your laser treatment, you may experience some redness or swelling, depending on your customized treatment settings. The swelling will usually diminish after a few hours and the redness as quickly as the next day or over the next few days. Most patients are able to resume their daily activities the very same day. Typically your provider should advise to stay out of direct sun for a few days following the treatment and to apply sun screen.
The Lumenis® Photofractional™ laser treatment works with your skin to stimulate deep collagen regeneration over a sequence of treatments. Already after the first session, you may begin to notice improvement in skin tone and pigmentation. Typically, about 3 sessions are needed to have visible improvement in the skin texture. Optimal results are typically achieved after 3-5 sessions in 2-6 weeks intervals. However, you may continue to see improvements for up to six months following the treatment.
