Non-ablative Fractional Er:Glass Laser
Non Ablative Fractional Laser treatment is probably the most comfortable energy based treatment in this category and can usually be tolerated well without numbing cream, especially on the body. At a depth of up to 0.8 mm treats more deeply than the FSR (0.2mm), which makes it better for wrinkle reduction and scar revision but obviously in in areas very near the eyes. By denaturing a sizable proportion of the collagen in the area treated, it results in more new collagen than can be obtained by the other methods. It does not break the skin which minimises the infection risk, it is faster than most other approaches and there is generally no downtime.
Depending upon the nature of the condition to be treated we may well recommend the use of Mandelic, glycolic or salicylic peels in combination with one of the treatments above.
