Palomar's fractional ablative treatments for smoothing wrinkles and skin damage use pulses of laser light that provide excellent, long-lasting results in just one simple treatment. The laser light penetrates the skin to the required depth and, thanks to a certain level of heat, causes a sharp reaction in the dermis, stimulating the production of collagen. This reduces the appearance of wrinkles all over the face, neck and décolleté, and around the eyes and mouth.
The operation of the fractional laser is based on the phenomenon of partial photothermolysis. It consists in creating small point skin lesions, while keeping the surrounding tissues intact. In such conditions, the skin receives a very strong stimulation to renew its structure, and thanks to the undamaged cells around the damaged columns, the convalescence time is minimal - the presence of healthy tissue triggers a rapid reconstruction of the epidermis in just 12 hours.
