Fractional Laser for Pigmentation

Go deep to reduce pigmentation while also rejuvenating your skin from the inside out.

What is a Fractional Laser Treatment?

Fractional laser skin resurfacing creates microscopic holes in your skin and then your body takes care of the rest. The tiny thermal holes are made without destroying surrounding tissue, allowing the affected areas to quickly heal and remodel your skin’s collagen. The lasers stimulate a natural healing process that works from the inside out, replacing damaged tissue with younger, smoother, healthier skin.

Fractional laser treatments with our Halo, Fraxel or CO2 lasers in Montreal, resurface your damaged skin to uncover the skin of your youth, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles as well as pigmentation. Deeper fractional laser treatments can also be used to reduce the appearance of acne scarring.

Get Started

How long is a treatment?

Depending on the starting point and desired result, clients may have one to four treatments of approximately thirty minutes. Treatments for pigmentation usually require one or two visits while treatments for texture, scars, stretch marks, and wrinkles, generally take two to four visits.

Following a fractional CO2 or Fraxel treatment, clients can expect three to seven days of downtime of “sunburn-type” redness followed by exfoliation of dead skin before their rejuvenated skin is fully healed. Multiple treatments are scheduled at two or three-week intervals and clients need only avoid sun exposure between them.

How does it feel?

We provide numbing cream on the area being treated so that pain is not felt during treatment. Following treatment, clients compare the downtime to feeling to a sunburn lasting 5 – 7 days.

How much does fractional laser cost?

Depending on the area treated, a fractional laser treatment can start at $800 per treatment with low monthly payments available for all treatments.

How soon can I see results?

As the treated skin breaks though the old skin, a fresh layer of new skin is revealed without the same problems of the old skin. This usually take about a week.

How do I get started?

A consultation for a fractional laser treatment with one of our highly trained laser technicians is free. We get to understand your skin type, discuss your goals, review before and after photos, and decide on a treatment plan together.

FAQs about Fractional Laser

Will I be able to work during my downtime?

A fractional laser treatment is our only laser treatment with significant downtime. For four to seven days following treatment, you will look like you have a sunburn as your old skin shed and your new skin comes through. We have photos we can show you during consultation that show the typical progression of recovery.

There is nothing preventing you from working, but many clients choose to work from home or take a vacation week during their recovery period.

What is the difference between Fraxel, Halo, and CO2 lasers?

CO2 fractional lasers are known as ablative lasers that go deeper into the dermis whereas Fraxel is known as an ebrium that penetrates less deeply. Italo is a hybrid laser that can be set to do both.

CO2 fractional lasers can have a bigger impact but has more downtime. These ablative fractional treatments are used for more serious skin rejuvenation issues or for clients that don’t mind longer downtime with fewer treatments.

What conditions can be treated by fractional lasers?

Fractional skin resurfacing in Montreal is known for treating the following issues:

  • Acne scars
  • Fine lines around the eyes
  • Surgical scars
  • Stretch marks
  • Age spots, sun damage, brown spots and general pigmentation
  • Melasma and actinic keratoses
  • Overall skin texture and smoothness

What makes a fractional laser a great non-surgical mommy makeover treatment?

When it comes to scars due to a caesarean section following childbirth (also known as a C-section), Fractional Lasers such as C02 can really help soften and eliminate their appearance. Fractional Lasers provide a more in-depth treatment of the dermis. Unlike the cells in the superficial layers of the skin that are constantly replacing themselves through exfoliation, an intervention such as a fractional laser is one of the only ways to treat dermal scars.

How long do I need to wait following childbirth to begin Fractional Laser treatments and do I need to be done breastfeeding?

We recommend treating C-section scars as early as possible, followed by a fractional laser if needed 6 months postpartum. Breastfeeding is a contraindication for Fractional Laser. We recommend booking your consultation once you’ve stopped completely.
