Fractional Laser Skin Resurfacing for Acne Scars

Fractional Laser Technology for Acne Scars, and Skin Resurfacing Treatment at Papillon Bleu Aesthetics Coquitlam, BC

Experience fractional laser at our aesthetics center in Coquitlam with the Icon Fractional 1540 laser technology is a revolutionary non-invasive laser designed to dramatically improve skin texture and tone, including the treatment of skin resurfacing from acne scars, and surgical scars without significant downtime.

What is the Fractional Laser Treatment?

Papillon Bleu Aesthetics uses Cynosure Icon Laser Technology, called fractional laser for our skin resurfacing treatment. Fractional Laser technology delivers pulsed energy into your skin and targeting your unwanted pigment, wrinkles, stretch marks, or scars without causing harm to the surrounding skin. Once the energy is absorbed into the skin, your body’s natural healing process will begin creating new, healthy skin in the area that was treated.  A typical course of fractional laser treatment involves 1-3 sessions, at one-month intervals. You can expect to see a decrease in fine wrinkles, as well as smoother and firmer skin texture, after one session. This targets stretch mark discoloration and stimulate the production of new collagen to improve smoothness.

How does Fractional Laser work?

The building blocks of smooth, youthful skin are elastin and collagen—with Fractional Laser skin resurfacing, pulses of light penetrate the skin’s sub-layers, treating its aging support structure. The body’s natural healing process then rebuilds the tissue, with even texture and smoother tone from old scarring caused by acne scars.

Does Fractional Laser Resurfacing hurt on Acne Scars?

Your treatment provider may offer ways to make this a comfortable experience during your Skin Resurfacing treatment for acne scars. Since everyone is different, and this depends on the level of treatment needed, it is best to discuss all of your options with our Papillon Bleu Aesthetics team conducting your fractional laser treatment.
