What is a Fractional Laser and How Can it Help You?

As we age, our skin takes the brunt of damage and wear. Scars, fine lines, wrinkles, sun damage, stretch marks, and melasma are all too common in aging skin. The ICON 1540XD Non-Ablative Fractional Laser works to improve your skin by quickly and effectively targeting certain areas, providing lasting results that’ll leave you feeling and looking rejuvenated.

That’s where our non-ablative laser technology comes in! A fractional laser is a non-invasive treatment, using a specialized device to literally divide a laser beam into thousands of treatment zones. This allows the beam to target a fraction of your skin, improving tone, texture, and colouration.

Many experts make the comparison to pixel-by-pixel updates to a photograph. We like to think we’re helping give you picture-perfect skin with every treatment! Our 1540XD laser builds on the ICON Aesthetic System to treat everything from poor skin texture and discolouration to sun damage and wrinkles.

By coagulating microcolumns within the epidermis and dermis, treatment stimulates new collagen production, the underlying cause for many skin issues. ICON’s XD Microlens also allows the energy to penetrate deeper to treat scars and stretch marks effectively.

Frequently Asked Questions

Am I a good candidate for fractional laser treatment?

ICON Fractional Laser treatment is designed to treat stretch marks, scarring, sun damage, fine lines, wrinkles, and other skin issues. If you’re looking to address these issues, booking a consultation at SKINS Derma Care will determine if this is the right treatment option for you.

How long is a typical treatment?

While it depends on the size of the treatment area and the type and severity of the condition being treated, the average ICON 1540XD Non-Ablative Fractional Laser treatment takes around 30 minutes.

What can I expect from my first treatment? How should I prepare?

When preparing for your first treatment, wash the treatment area with soap and water and remove all makeup and lotions. Immediately following treatment, your skin will be pink for a few days (between 3 and 5). During this time, you may experience some swelling and flaking. Your skin will clear and renew, with full results showing up after the completion of a full treatment course.

When will I see results?

Results will gradually become apparent as you progress through each treatment. We recommend a minimum of 3 treatments, spaced 3 to 6 weeks apart.

Is treatment painful?

Some patients experience discomfort during treatment as the laser is applied, but this non-invasive treatment is generally very mild. We offer numbing creams to help reduce any discomfort you might feel.

Are there any side effects?

As mentioned before, redness, swelling, and even some flaking or peeling are common in the first 24 hours following treatment. These typically resolve 3 to 5 days following treatment.

*Results may vary from person to person based on body size, body type, and other factors.
