What is ClearGlow (Frac3)?
The ClearGlow treatment is a non-ablative, new revolution in skin rejuvenation and anti-ageing. Utilising our medical grade Nd:YAG laser, Frac3 stimulates the skins natural capacity to rejuvenate by selectively inducing micro wounds under the skins surface. As the surrounding tissue remains unaffected, you can expect to experience a healthy, natural glow without the discomfort and downtime associated with some other procedures.
Why have Frac3 treatments:
It’s a very safe and non-invasive procedure which is often referred to as a “lunch hour treatment.” This is the new benchmark in non-ablative skin treatments with no downtime.
Over the course of four to six treatments, Frac3 can help restore the skin’s youthful glow and appearance. The individual treatment results are subtle, but the overall effect of multiple treatments can be quite dramatic.
- Frac3 is fantastic for treating the following:
- Safely and gently treat diffuse redness
- Managing rosacea
- Fades acne scarring
- Continuously stimulates new collagen production
- Reduce the appearance of fine lines
- Naturally promotes a healthy look
What areas can be treated with Frac3?
Frac3 provides excellent results on the face and neck. Additionally, it can also be suggested to diminish the appearance of recent scars that present with erythema (pinkness), such as surgical scarring, stretch marks, post-inflammatory marks etc on other parts of the body.
Frequently Asked Questions
What can I expect during treatment and how do I prepare for Frac3?
Prior to treatment, your clinician will cleanse your skin to remove any makeup or moisturiser that you may have on your skin. We will also perform a thorough consultation to gain an understanding of your medical history, skincare regime, sun exposure and expected results before commencing treatment to ensure you are a suitable candidate.
During treatment, you will experience a gentle warming sensation on your skin’s surface. Some areas may feel slightly more sensitive than others but you will not experience any pain or discomfort. Patients often describe the treatment as relaxing.
In preparation for your Frac3 laser treatment, we ask that you avoid all active skincare (Vitamin A and AHA’s) at least 24 hours prior, make sure you have no fake tan on the area being treated and have not had recent significant sun exposure in the 3-4 weeks leading up to the treatment.
How many treatments will I need?
On average, you may require four to six treatments in order to achieve optimal results. Every patient’s condition and needs vary. For more information about your expected results or the number of treatments necessary, it is best to have a consultation with one of our clinicians.
What can I expect after the treatment?
Immediately after the treatment, you may notice a slight pinkness as though your skin appears flushed; however, this settles very quickly and most people can return to normal activities straight away.
After your treatment, you will be advised to use an SPF50+ daily, avoid any direct sun exposure, avoid actives for 72 hours and to also avoid exercise for the first 24 hours.
