Fractional Laser Skin Resurfacing


Effectively reduce the appearance of sun damage and stretch marks with Frax.

We offer non-ablative fractional skin resurfacing laser (Frax 1550) to address a wide range of skin resurfacing or scarring concerns at Beyond Beauty Skin Clinic.

The Frax 1550 is specific for addressing: 

  • Non-ablative skin resurfacing (including but not limited to treatment of skin texture, fine lines and wrinkles)
    • Treatment of pink or purple striae (stretch marks)
    • Treatment of acne scars – ice-pick scars, rolling scars, boxcar scars, atrophic or hypertrophic.
    • Treatment of surgical or trauma scars
    • Treatment of improving and repairing sun damage
    • Treatment of minimising age spots

Does the treatment hurt?

To ensure optimal comfort at Beyond Beauty, topical local anaesthetic is applied to the treated area prior to treatment. Frax 1550 uses SoftCool™ cooling; cool damp air is played onto the patient skin at the point of treatment, increasing comfort.

How long does an Ellipse treatment take?

A course may vary depending on your initial condition and reaction. But Ellipse treatments offer a fast solution with no scarring. It is a non-surgical solution that delivers fast results without any skin discolouration or hyper pigmentation. It takes approximately 60 IPL flashes to treat the full face. Including consultation and preparation, you should count on 30 minutes at our clinic. 

Do I need to take special precautions before the treatment?

The light used is a completely safe, visible light so no special precautions are necessary.  

What can I expect after the treatment?

You may notice some general redness on the face following the treatment. If you have sun-damaged skin, some of the pigmented spots may turn darker and eventually disappear. Because bacteria is difficult to eradicate completely, your doctor will probably recommend that you continue using adapalene cream for some months after your Ellipse treatment has ended.

How many treatments should I have, and when?

A typical course of therapy includes 4 treatments, 3 weeks apart.

How can I be sure that Ellipse is safe and effective?

Clinical trials documenting Ellipse safety and effectiveness were carried out by leading doctors prior to the launch of the treatment, and these were published in respected medical journals. You are welcome to view these scientific papers on the Ellipse website at: www.ellipse.com.
