Today, technological advancements in aesthetic surgery allow individuals to enhance their appearances in the desired manner. Limb lengthening surgeries are emerging as a significant method that increases both physical and psychological satisfaction for many. However, the scars that can occur following these operations often become a major source of concern for patients. At this point, conducting detailed research, mastering the process, and finding the right alternative solutions are crucial. In this article, we will particularly examine the details of fractional laser treatment for individuals who are concerned about minimal scars on the legs after limb lengthening surgery.

What is Fractional Laser Treatment Used For?

Fractional Laser Treatment is one of the most advanced technologies for skin rejuvenation and scar healing. This method simultaneously affects both main layers of the skin, the epidermis (top layer) and the dermis (middle layer), optimizing the healing process. While Ablative Laser technology primarily focuses on the epidermis, Non-Ablative Laser mainly impacts the dermis. However, Fractional Laser has the advantage of simultaneously intervening in both skin layers, significantly advancing scar healing.

Fractional Laser treatments are typically conducted in sessions lasting about 20-25 minutes each. In most cases, a single session can heal up to 80% of scar tissue. Depending on the patient's skin color and texture, one or two additional sessions may be necessary to achieve complete healing. After these additional sessions, healing rates of up to 99% can be achieved. Particularly for patients concerned about scars following aesthetic surgical operations like limb lengthening surgeries, fractional laser treatment is a highly effective method and is frequently chosen by many patients today.

Known also as a scar treatment method, patients need to consult a dermatologist. The specialist dermatologist will examine the patient's skin type and scars before preparing a personalized treatment plan.

How is Fractional Laser Treatment Applied?

Fractional Laser treatment is a modern method used to promote the healing process of the skin and treat scars and other skin issues. Here's the application process for this treatment:

  • Patient Assessment: Before starting the treatment, a dermatologist or cosmetic surgeon thoroughly examines the patient. At this stage, the patient's skin type, characteristics of the scar, and overall health are evaluated.

  • Skin Cleansing: The area to be treated is cleaned with antiseptic solutions to eliminate any risk of infection.

  • Anesthesia Application: To reduce discomfort, a topical anesthetic (in cream form) is applied to the area to be treated. In some cases, local anesthesia may also be necessary.

  • Laser Settings: The Fractional Laser device is specifically adjusted according to the patient's skin type and the characteristics of the area to be treated. The laser is programmed to reach the skin layers at the determined depth and intensity.

  • Laser Application: The device is gently moved over the skin, targeting the upper and middle layers of the skin. The laser beams penetrate the skin in microscopic columns, destroying old, damaged skin cells in the affected areas while preserving the surrounding healthy tissue. This process activates the skin's natural healing mechanism and promotes the production of new, healthy skin cells.

  • Post-Treatment Care: After the treatment, there may be slight redness and swelling on the skin. Patients are given special care instructions to protect their skin and accelerate the healing process. Sun protection and the use of moisturizers are very important during this period.

  • Healing Process: The skin begins to heal within a few days after the treatment. It usually takes several weeks for complete healing and for the results to become visible.

Fractional Laser treatment is a technologically advanced method that is highly effective in correcting aesthetic and medical skin issues. The treatment plan should be customized according to the needs of each patient.
