SKN MediAesthetics is one of the few clinics in Singapore to offer Fractional Nd:YAG Laser treatments. This laser excels at removing pigmentation type skin problems effectively with less downtime compared to other Nd:YAG lasers. This fractional laser also stimulates collagen production and provides a lifting effect. Two results for the price of one.
During the treatment, the Fractional Nd:YAG Laser beam is fractionated or divided up into numerous tiny shafts of lasers. These lasers form a Laser-Matrix that effectively removes skin problems and also penetrates into the deeper layers of the skin to increase the skin’s natural collagen production. The fractionated nature of the laser ensures that downtime is minimised while results are maximised.
A variety of fractional lasers are offered in SKN MediAesthetics. Through a consultation with Dr Alvin Wong, the most suitable laser/s will be recommended based on your aesthetic needs and goals.
Lasers have been used in aesthetic medicine for decades and have been proven to provide safe, predictable and effective results when used by trained doctors. There is minimal pain during the laser treatment, but all patients are offered a topical numbing cream to be applied to the treatment area 30 minutes before.
Dr Alvin is experienced with Fractional Nd:YAG Lasers, and will customise the treatment according to your needs.
Bear in mind that the fractional Nd:YAG laser can be customised.
Treatments can be deeper, with more downtime, or shallower, with less. The deeper the treatment, the better the results generally. Some patients prefer to have more treatments that aren’t as deep so they can avoid downtime.
The number of treatments you will need is also based on the severity of your problem.
Some may require as little as one treatment to achieve their desired results, for others it may take five treatments.
Dr Alvin will work with you in mapping your needs and goals during your initial consultation
During the first 24 hours after treatment, your skin may feel warm and sensitive. You might also notice a matrix-like pattern on your skin where the laser has been applied. This Laser-Matrix will appear pink then turn brown and flake off over 2-7 days. Following this, you will notice that pigmentation problems have become noticeably lighter or have disappeared.
In most cases, you can wear make-up the day after treatment.
You will see results after each session, and these will improve over time as your skin heals.
