Fraxel/ ProFractional/ Core / PEARL lasers are all Fractional Lasers. This is the buzz-word in acne scar revision over the past 3 years and represents state of the art technology in the treatment of acne scars. Unlike Full laser resurfacing, fractional laser, as the name suggests, treats only ‘fractions’ of the skin, allowing you to heal faster compared to normal laser resurfacing. The flip side of Fractional Laser is that you will require more than one treatment for optimal results. Most recently, a newer type of Fractional device has entered the scene called RadioFrequency Fractional – this has much less down time than fractional devices.
