What is it?
The Lumenis® Photofractional™ solution
The Lumenis® Photofractional™ treatment is a complete skinrejuvenation solution, enabling your physician to offer you remarkable results on a range of skin aging concerns such as age and sun spots, fine lines, acne scars, uneven texture and skin tone. Our unique rejuvenation technology combines two solutions, IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) and ResurFX™ non-ablative skin resurfacing, so that both skin tone and texture can be treated simultaneously.
Is it safe?
Developed by the pioneer of aesthetic medicine and trusted by leading professionals around the world, Photofractional is clinically validated to safely and effectively treat stretch marks.
What should I expect?
When will I see results?
The Lumenis® Photofractional™ treatment works with your skin to stimulate deep collagen regeneration over a sequence of treatments. The result is a visible smoothening of the affected stretch mark area and an improvement in the discoloration. Already after the first session, you will begin to notice improvement. Typically, 3-5 sessions in 2-6 weeks intervals are needed to obtain optimal results. However, you will continue to see improvements for up to six months following the treatment.
What can I expect after treatment?
Immediately following treatment, you may experience some redness or swelling, depending on your customized treatment settings. The swelling will diminish after a few hours and the redness as quickly as the next day or over the next few days. Most patients are able to resume their daily activities the very same day. Typically your physician should advise to stay out of direct sun for a few days following the treatment and to apply sun screen.
How does it work?
By combining both IPL and ResurFX™ technologies, both skin pigmentation and texture can be treated at the same time. Lumenis® IPL technology removes unwanted pigment from the skin, while the ResurFX™ fractional laser stimulates the production of new collagen and elastin fibers in the deeper layers of the skin. Stimulating new collagen production is the key to a smoother, tighter looking skin.
To ensure utmost comfort, your physician should typically apply a topical numbing cream before treatment and/or use air cooling during treatment. Depending on the area being treated, you can expect the session to last 15-30 minutes. You may experience a warm or prickling sensation as the laser is applied to the skin, but the treatment is gentle and should not feel uncomfortable.
