A fractional handpiece is used to offer LIOBS deep in the skin. LIOBS – standing for laser-induced optical breakdown. This creates a photoacoustic plasma release and new growth factors healing and repairing the skin from deep within.
Downtime is minimal as it only treats tiny micro-zones leaving the surrounding skin intact. For most scarring, a course of 4 sessions can improve the appearance of a scar by up to 80%. The Fractional Picosecond treatment can be repeated every 4-5 weeks.
For more complex scarring a course of 6 sessions may be needed. A consultation to assess the scar type and suitability to treatment is the first step and then a treatment plan will be explained during this consultation time.
