Fractional laser: treatment for acne scars, surgical scars and wrinkles

The fractional laser is a new generation laser that aims to smooth the skin and tone it by delivering high precision thermal energy. Thanks to the device’s roller, the skin surface is left intact, guaranteeing faster healing and recovery.

By stimulating the collagen fibres, which are one of the main components of the skin, the heat emitted by the device improves skin texture and structure, corrects acne scars and surgical scars, reduces wrinkles and erases the skin. Stretch marks on skin phototypes ranging from I to IV.

Principle of the Frax Pro non-ablative fractional laser

The Frax Pro Non-Ablative Fractional Laser used by Dr Aimé is a latest-generation laser that corrects various skin imperfections in-depth, with less social exclusion.

The particularity of this device is that it delivers a large number of microwells per cm² of treated skin, which ensures deep skin resurfacing. On the other hand, the non-ablative aspect of this technology eliminates any risk of skin injury on the surface. The remarkable specificity of the Frax Pro non-ablative fractional laser is that it causes columns of heat in the skin, better known under the name “microthermal zones” (MTZ). Which, by heating the dermis, stimulates the formation of the skin. ‘a new collagen (neo-collagenesis of collagen). The result is a continuous improvement of the treated skin for a period ranging from 3 to 6 months after the treatment.
