Fractional Laser

There are multiple therapeutic options for treating scars and increasing vitality of the tissue, One option is the fractional laser, which includes fractional techniques that stimulate collagen. It is the latest laser treatment for wrinkles and scars and is also used to improve skin pigmentation. It operates by making microscopic wounds in the skin, which heal fast while reducing the probability of brown spots or scars as well as provide the desired results.  It is required of the treated patient to understand many things before treatment, such as the need for several consecutive sessions as well as expecting "realistic” results, that is, the treated scars and wrinkles may not completely disappear, but should improve significantly. It should also be emphasized that the number of sessions as well as the use of appropriate treatment for each case plays a big role in achieving the best results. Fractional laser  is considered to be an effective treatment for scars with its safer operation at deeper tissue levels.
