Dr. Low Chai Ling of The Sloane Clinic now offers a new aesthetic solution to turn back the clock on aging and sun-damaged skin that provides the benefits of traditional skin resurfacing techniques without the downtime and risks. This newest generation of non-invasive laser technology called FraxelÂ Laser Treatment treats periorbital (around the eyes) wrinkles and pigmented lesions such as age spots and sun spots on the face, neck, chest and hands.
Dr. Low reports that the Fraxel laser is specially designed to create thousands of microscopic thermal spots that form vertical columns of treated skin tissue that are separated and surrounded by unaffected, healthy skin. This innovative approach allows the doctor to treat only a small fraction of skin at a time so it heals much faster than if the entire area were treated at once. Moreover, and in contrast to non-ablative laser/light therapies, Fraxel Laser Treatment creates new epidermal skin in the treatment zones within 24 hours.
ÂFraxel Laser Treatment represents a whole new method of skin repair. It rebuilds damaged skin like digital modification -- pixel by pixel, spot by spot,Â says Dr. Low who is the first in Singapore to own the advanced laser. ÂThink of your skin as a family portrait or a digital photograph in need of high-quality restoration or touch-up. A painting is delicately restored one small area at a time, or a photo is digitally altered, pixel by pixel. ThatÂs the scientific principle behind Fraxel Laser Treatment.Â
Safe and effective, the Fraxel SR laser is cleared by the FDA and has undergone extensive testing in the lab and out in the field. Dr. Low says that based on her clinical experience, an effective treatment regime generally requires four to six treatment sessions, spaced about five to seven days apart. Noticeable results are typically achieved after three to five treatments.
ÂIn our practice, we have observed nice improvements in uneven skin color, acne scars and wrinkles around the eye area. The treated skin is smooth, soft and fresh. Even acne is reduced. In fact, our patients are so thrilled with how young and attractive they look that their friends and family members are requesting Fraxel treatment, especially when compared to other treatment modalities that are associated with far more significant side effects,Â notes Dr. Low.
Other key advantages of Fraxel Laser Treatment (FLT) are:
- No scalpel, no stitches, no needles
- No general anesthesia Â FLT is well tolerated with a topical anesthetic
- Convenience Â the procedure takes about 30 minutes in the doctorÂs office
- High safety and proven effectiveness on neck, chest and hands
- Virtually no risk of complications or adverse events
- Natural, youthful-looking results
