Fractional Laser Skin Resurfacing

Fractional Laser Skin Resurfacing (Frax 1550)
The London Cosmetic Clinic offers non-ablative fractional skin resurfacing laser (Frax 1550) to address a wide range of skin resurfacing or scarring concerns. Frax 1550 is a fractional non-ablative laser that has very few side effects and less downtime than ablative lasers. The Frax 1550 is specific for addressing:

  • Non-ablative skin resurfacing (including but not limited to treatment of skin texture, fine lines and wrinkles)
  • Treatment of pink or purple striae (stretch marks)
  • Treatment of acne scars – ice-pick scars, rolling scars, boxcar scars, atrophic or hypertrophic.
  • Treatment of surgical or trauma scars
  • Treatment of improving and repairing sun damage
  • Treatment of minimising age spots

Controlled thermal effects or columns of heat are created in the skin. This immediately stimulates an inflammatory response and controlled trauma. Your body gets to work to soothe, reinforce and regenerate the treatment site. The proliferation of collagen and elastin is prevalent up to 90 days after the initial treatment and is what rebuilds, tightens and enhances lax or damaged structures. 

A combination treatment with an SWT applicator followed by the Frax 1550 laser produces an even better result with less treatments. And because the surface of the skin is left intact, the downtime is limited.

A patented integrated cooling system, SoftCool™ produces cooled air exactly where you need it – at the treatment site. The focused stream of cool air minimizes patient discomfort by efficiently removing excessive heat before, during and after Frax 1550 treatments.

 

Prior to treatment, the patient should:

  • Avoid tanning or excessive sun exposure.
  • Avoid perfumes, deodorants and other potential irritants in treatment area.
  • Avoid taking aspirin and other blood thinners prior to treatment

What to expect after the procedure

  • Most patients can return to work immediately after the procedure.
  • Redness caused by the treatment can be camouflaged by makeup without any negative effects
  • A good hydrating moisturiser should be applied post treatment.
  • Patients should avoid sleeping on the treatment area to prevent swelling, or prop an additional pillow behind their heads.
  • Cold compresses can be applied to alleviate any potential swelling.
  • Sun exposure should be avoided during the healing phase and a sunscreen of at least SPF 30-50 should be applied daily.

Incredibly happy with my gummy smile fix. It was my first time getting a cosmetic procedure and the LCC made me feel incredibly comfortable. Thank-you to Dr Johnson who walked me through the procedure ( which was incredibly fast and pain free!) and a massive thank you to Rahena! Your customer service was exceptional and made me feel really assured and comfortable. Will definitely be recommending the LCC to everyone. Incredibly professional and well priced clinic. I can already see a difference in my smile!
