Fractional laser actually refers to a laser working mode, as long as the diameter of the laser beam (spot) is less than 500 μm, and regularly arranged into a Fractional array, then the laser working mode is Fractional laser. Fractional array laser is a minimally invasive treatment between invasive and non-invasive.
Ultra pulse CO2 Fractional array laser has a wavelength of 10600nm and belongs to stripping laser. Compared with the traditional CO2 lattice, the laser energy can reach its peak quickly, thus reducing the damage to the surrounding skin. However, the current CO2 lattice machine, the superpulse is basically standard.
Superpulse stripping CO2 Fractional array laser can instantly heat the water in the tissue to more than 100 ℃, and vaporize the epidermis and dermis (scar) of different depths when acting on the skin, resulting in skin vaporization pits.
Due to its peak power is big, cause the damage with small, precise evaporation organization, on the surrounding tissue damage is light, laser wounds can be healed in 3 ~ 5 days, at the same time cause pigmentation or pigment decreased complications such as less likely, the lattice model by improved laser adverse reaction is bigger (scar, erythema, recovery time is long, etc.) and curative effect is not obvious, The results showed a good therapeutic effect.
1.Treatment of acne and acne scars and scars
2.Eyelid, crow’s feet and other fine lines around the eye, dry lines removal
3.Effectively improve facial and frontal wrinkles, joint folds and stretch marks
4.Treatment of pigmented lesions such as freckles and zygomatic spots
5.Tighten and enhance the skin
Different types: Stripping/non-stripping
The exfoliating laser produces a high temperature that vaporizes the epidermis and part of the dermis at the site of exposure, like “peeling a layer of skin.” The skin then grows back and stimulates new collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid to achieve the purpose of “laser skin”.
Non peel off does not have “peel skin” this step, there is no naked eye visible wound, let the skin repair below mild stimulation. In between is microstripping.
