Fractional Laser Resurfacing (otherwise known as fractional photothermolysis) is a

non-invasive laser cosmetic procedure that improve skin conditions such as wrinkles and lines,
acne scars, general scars, sun damage, brown spots and other skin problems, and results are shown
immediately with minimal side effects and recovery periods.

How Does It Work?

The laser, a high-energy beam of light, can be directed into parts of tissues within the skin. These beams of light are
produced in one wavelength or colour at a time, and vary in terms of their strength and the type of tissues targeted.

Ablative Lasers

The “ablative” or skin resurfacing lasers briefly direct an intense burst of laser energy onto the surface
of the skin.When energy heats water within the surface layers of the skin, it causes both the water and the
tissues of the skin turning into vapor. Some outermost layers of the skin are removed in a precise and
controlled manner, at appropriate depth each time the laser passes over the skin.

Non – Ablative Lasers

The non-ablative lasers is a type of aesthetic equipment of skin rejuvenation introduced recently.
These lasers have lower energy levels than ablative lasers. It causes damage within the dermal layer
of the skin without removal of the outer epidermal layers. That is to say, the laser treats the
layers of skin under the surface without much damage to the skin surface resulting in faster recovery time.

Which kind of treatment(s) normally does patient usually do?

Patients are usually advised to do a full face treatment.

How would you feel?

To minimize discomfort and irritation, a topical anaesthetic will be applied before the procedure
and a cool air machine will be used during the procedure. Discomfort, swelling, light crusting, flaking,
itching, and infection at the treatment sites may occur.
This procedure produces flashes of bright light that could trigger seizures for epileptics or headaches
for photosensitive individuals. Pixel treatments should not be performed if you have taken
Accutane within the past twelve months.

How long does the treatment last?

A full face treatment takes around 30 minutes. Patient is allowed to go home straight after the treatment.

How long does it take to recover?

The recovery time for your skin varies with each individual, ranging from 2 to 7 days.
If you feel any discomfort, pleasecome back for a follow-up at NeuGlow.

What do you have to take note of before treatment?

If you have a history of frequent herpes outbreaks (cold sores, fever blisters) at or near the
site of the procedure should consult your family doctor to determine if a systemic anti-viral
medication should be taken in advance of the procedure.

After the treatment, you have to stay away from UV light (sun, tanning booths, etc) or excessive heat
(hot tubs, saunas, etc) within three days to prevent any elevation of any discomfort.

A detailed post-treatment instruction manual will be given to you in ensuring the best possible results.
