What is Fractional Laser Treatment in Turkey & Istanbul?
This technique appeared in 2004 and it is intended for older people or those with scars (new or old). It is applied to all skin types and can treat all body areas like neck, neckline, and hands. The objective of fractional laser resurfacing is to treat brown spots, aging scars or following an accident, and wrinkle treatment.
The number of sessions differs from one person to another and it depends on the area being treated.
In fact, the fractional laser is performed under local anesthesia and exists in two forms:
Ablative fractional laser
The ablative fractional laser attacks the entire surface of the skin with its light by removing the upper part which leaves room for a younger new skin.
Non-ablative laser rejuvenation
Unlike the ablative fractional laser, this type does not attack the skin but its purpose is to damage the collagen that will give way to a new collagen that will responsible for correcting the skin.
