Our client Tania de Clerk was Lasermed’s guinea pig during our recent training on the Nordlys Frax 1550, a new fractional laser.
She writes, “I’m a huge fan of preventative skincare treatments. So, I was very excited when I was asked to review the Frax 1550 laser. Herewith my experience at Lasermed.
“Being a non-ablative fractional or fractionated laser, it doesn’t wound or remove thin layers from the skin surface. Instead, it delivers a large number of very small spots per square centimetre of skin treated.
“A 1550 wavelength heats the dermis and the area of heat spreads down, below and outwards from each spot. And the heated area is known as a Micro Thermal Zone. Heating the dermis in a controlled way causes new collagen to form.
While treatments only last a few minutes, replacing collagen in the treated area is a gradual process. Thus, you’ll note continual improvements for a 3- to 6-month period post-treatment.
“The good news is that the fractional resurfacing laser reduces fine lines and wrinkles. But even better, those caused by the sun, especially around the eyes and lips, respond best. It’s never too late or too early to treat wrinkles. After all, prevention is better than cure.
“As opposed to ablative resurfacing, the huge advantage of the non-ablative fractional laser resurfacing is that there’s minimal, if any, post-recovery period.”
Tania. We loved treating you!
