Fractional laser rejuvenation

Fractional laser rejuvenation is a strategy for skin rejuvenation during a woman's difficult period.

The fractional laser is the best option instead of aggressive laser exposure, photorejuvenation, DOT therapy and chemical peeling.

Fraxel is a laser used to rejuvenate the skin's surface and its deep layers. Unlike others, fractional laser has a high stimulation capacity to reproduce collagen with minimal traumatic effects on the skin of the face.

The laser beam passes through a filter that divides it into several laser beams. Because of this, a large traumatic surface does not form on the skin, and areas of healthy skin between the treated areas stimulate increased collagen production.

The fractional laser can be used on any part of the skin, without risk of complications and regardless of the phototype. The laser procedure can be performed at any time of the year, but observing the rules for protecting the skin from the sun's rays.

Patients undergoing this procedure can start work the next day. And all this is due to the competent laser configurations.
