Frequently Asked Questions 

What is fractional laser vs non-fractional laser?

Fractional laser technology is introduced since 2004, it result in rapid healing of the skin and reduced risks of side effect of laser.

In Sliq clinic, we ONLY use fractional laser technoly, as it’s the safest technology to treat scarring with minimal damage to the healthy surround skin tissues. Fractional laser also revolutionized the way we treat scarring as it shortens the downtime of each treatment without sacrificing the result.

Does fractional laser cause long downtime?
Newer generation laser like the Deka Fractional CO2 laser, and Fotona Picosencond laser provides a shorter downtime of 5-7 days to patient, much shorter compared to conventional laser which may takes up to 2 weeks of healing.
Does fractional laser cause skin to be thinner and sensitive?
This is a myth, as the basis of depressed acne scarring is that the skin over the scar is thinned and pitted, and fractional laser are used to resurface and remodel the skin layer with new collagen, this will thicken the skin layer, improve the surface texture of the skin, and does not thin the skin.

However, there is a process of healing in between the laser sessions, so your skin may appear more sensitive during the first week of treatment. Each patients will be provided with a post care protocol in our clinic to help optimized treatment result

Fractional Co2 laser is an ablative laser, which means the top layer of the skin will notice peeling effect following each laser session.
However in the case of Fractional Picosecond laser, it does not have peeling, its downtime is shorter that ablative resurfacing laser.
