The main difference between Fractional Laser and traditional ablative laser is in the mode of delivery. Traditional ablative laser function with a moving beam which directly ablates the skin’s surface. The technology of Fractional CO2 laser uses a grid system by delivering micro grid beams allowing the outer skin to be largely intact.
These small areas of untreated skin promote a much more rapid recovery and healing with less risk of complications. The small areas treated by the fractional micro beams will be less sensitive to sun damage promoting new collagen production and achieve facial skin rejuvenation.
