The FRAC3 skin treatment is a non-ablative revolution in skin rejuvenation. FRAC3 utilises Nd.Yag laser to stimulate the skins natural capacity to rejuvenate by inducing micro wounds in prematurely aged or damaged portions of the dermis and epidermis.
The laser creates a 3 dimensional matrix of micro wounds which are concentrated at specific depths of the existing skin damage. The surrounding tissue remains unaffected therefore the treatment intensity is minimised. This treatment achieves a healthy, natural glow without the discomfort and downtime associated with other procedures. FRAC3 is also used to diffuse redness and treat rosacea and pigmentation.
This is a safe and non-invasive procedure and often referred to as a "lunch hour laser".

Prior to Treatment
Every person wishing to be treated at Advanced Laser Clinic will require a consultation with our Laser Consultant prior to their first treatment.
At this appointment, we welcome all questions to advance your understanding of the treatment. There will be a consultation form to be completed about your health and medications to asses your eligibility for treatment.
A patch test will be performed on your skin to ensure the laser settings are suitable for you. If there are no reactions 24 hours after your patch test, we can commence your laser treatment.
Before laser therapy, it is very important that you keep your treated area away from sun exposure. Your skin needs to be protected from the sun for a minimum of two weeks before any treatment commences. This is crucial both before and after the treatment. The lasers work on providing a specific heat at a specific depth in your tissue to produce a desired end point. This end point can be exacerbated if exposed to sun and can cause unwanted side effects.
Before & After
Frequently asked questions
How will my skin look after FRAC3 laser?
Initially you may notice slight redness, however this settles very quickly and most people can return to normal activities straight away. The treatment creates a thermal response but there is no breaking of the skin and therefore no downtime associated with FRAC3.
Will FRAC3 hurt?
No, with FRAC3, you will feel a sensation of heat accumulation in the skin. Some areas may be more sensitive than others- clients often find that the forehead can be slightly more sensitive as it is a bonier area. You will have no pain or discomfort post treatment.
