Fractional Lasers

As a midway approach to laser skin resurfacing that falls between ablative and nonablative laser resurfacing, fractional laser resurfacing has rapidly evolved over the past 3 years with the emergence of many variations and competitors.

Fractional laser treatments show dramatic results.
You’ll see major improvement in the tone and texture of your skin.

The Centre Laser Sorbonne has invested into two different fractional lasers in order to encompass a bigger spectrum of patient’s needs : The Pixel 2940 from Alma Lasers and the EXELO2 from Quantel Derma.

Erbium Fractional Laser - PIXEL :

The fractional rejuvenation procedure performed exclusively by PIXEL® laser technology from Alma Lasers®, lifts away years from your face and stimulates new collagen to grow. It improves your skin’s texture and tone to fight fine lines, wrinkles, and even acne scars.

 

Many patients choose PIXEL because it :

- Clears sun-damaged skin
- Smoothes fine lines and wrinkles
- Shrinks the appearance of pores
- Fills in acne scars
- Blends uneven pigmentation

 

PIXEL works by creating thousands of microscopic perforations, but the skin around each of these perforations remains intact. This allows your skin’s top layer to heal from the edge of these tiny holes very rapidly, which significantly improves your complexion. In more detail, the PIXEL® laser light passes through patented optics to penetrate the skin with tiny thermal channels, only as deep as a few sheets of paper. In each channel it creates a micro-injury, without disturbing the surrounding tissue.

These micro-injury sites (about 15-20 percent of the treatment area) start the process of healing. As collagen remodels, skin tightens and scars improve. The intact, undamaged skin around the treatment site is what promotes quicker healing for a faster recovery.

CO2 Fractional Laser - EXELO 2 :

The EXELO2 is manufactured by Quantel Derma. The EXELO2 is revolutionary in its ability to combine the benefits of ablative and non-ablative lasers in one simple pain-free procedure. The fractionated CO2 technology creates wells in the skin which contracts the skin immediately. Besides the skin tightening capability, the heated areas around the wells causes neo-collagen formation resulting in a long term reduction in wrinkles and improved skin elasticity. Improvement in the appearance of pigmented lesions, such as solar damage, is also apparent. Traditional CO2 laser indications such as hypertrophic lesions are also easily treated. The EXELO2 offers several technological advances over competitive CO2 fractional laser devices.

 

Variable Spot Density and Depth Provide Better Patient Outcomes

The EXELO2’s Computer Pattern Generator (CPG) technology with variable density allows the operator to adjust the spot density from 25 to 400 MTZ/cm2 and spot depth by increasing or decreasing the power. Controls are built-in to the handpiece, providing the ultimate in user-friendly design. Additionally, treatment areas can be increased up to 4 cm2. This unique flexibility allows the physician to determine the extent of micro-channel ablation. By determining the extent of ablation, the physician controls patient downtime and the number of treatments required to achieve a particular outcome (1-3 treatments depending on severity.) Typically, 1-5 days downtime are all that is required.

EXELO2 is a Powerful and Fast CO2 Fractional Laser

With 30 Watts of power, the EXELO2 allows the physician maximum versatility and extremely fast treatment times. A full face treatment requires only 15 minutes and without the need for patient preparation time as no topical anesthetic is required.

These lasers represent an evolved solution for skin rejuvenation, compared to earlier laser skin resurfacing techniques that involved more traumatic side effects.
