Have you considered Fractional laser treatment in Singapore? If you are in the market for cosmetic treatments to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, you may have explored fractional laser and microneedling. And while fractional laser treatments in Singapore are all the rage for their ability to stimulate collagen production, microneedling also remains a staunch favourite for some.

Both these treatments work by creating micro-injuries on your skin’s surface and stimulating collagen production. Where these differ, is in the method of delivery and the type of skin concerns they resolve. When considering which option is better for you, it is prudent to consider your skin troubles, results and the downtime that comes with each treatment.

Are you wondering which of these is better suited to you? Today, we will explore the two treatments – fractional laser and microneedling, examining the pros and cons of each treatment and helping you determine which one is suitable for you.

Fractional Laser Treatments in Singapore

Fractional laser treatments in Singapore are performed using a specialised form of laser that delivers tiny columns of energy to the skin. The laser creates micro-injuries on the skin’s surface, stimulating collagen and thus helping to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and scars. This precision of these tiny columns reduces the risk of injury and recovery time.

Fractional laser treatments are also considered safe across all skin types, and your doctor can adjust the laser to your specific skin concerns and goals. Best of all, these treatments are quick procedures that take very little commitment and come with minimal downtime. Think of it as a lunchtime treat that gives you healthy, younger-looking skin!

Other benefits of Fractional laser treatments in Singapore 

While Fractional laser treatments can reduce fine lines and the appearance of wrinkles, they are also an excellent tool for targeting hyperpigmentation, age spots, and skin discolouration. Other benefits include an improvement in skin tone and pore size for a smoother and fresher-looking complexion.

If you have been keeping away from anti-wrinkle injections, Fraxel also allows you to treat Crow’s feet or the lines around your eyes safely. Furthermore, Fractional laser treatments in Singapore are used to treat severe scarring, like acne or stretch marks, and tackle pigmentation issues such as Melasma. It is a world of skin rejuvenating possibilities with Fractional laser treatments.

Microneedling on the other hand is a cosmetic treatment that uses a hand-held device with fine needles to create micro-injuries in the skin. Unlike fractional laser treatments in Singapore that go deeper, microneedling involves carefully controlled lower penetration to the skin, and in the process stimulates collagen production to promote healing.

Microneedling can be performed on all skin types and is safe for most people.

Microneedling is a widely-available treatment, and is often offered at salons, home spas and other non-clinical settings. It is especially attractive to those wary of pain, as it typically does not require the use of anaesthetics. Aside from helping to rejuvenate your skin, microneedling is a safe treatment for reducing fine lines, acne scars and other skin imperfections.


Get Youthful Skin With Fractional laser treatments or Microneedling 

While Fractional laser treatments in Singapore remain the procedure of choice for doctors, they are still considered invasive when compared to microneedling. Fractional laser treatments can also become uncomfortable for some, and hence require the use of an anaesthetic before the treatment.

The cost of fractional laser treatment in Singapore can also be higher than that of microneedling, which may be a reason for those choosing a cheaper treatment.

Then there’s downtime. Patients often experience some amount of redness or swelling after Fraxel, which is less obvious after a round of microneedling.

That being said, microneedling requires several sessions to achieve optimal results, and the benefits may not be as noticeable as what you get with fractional laser treatments.

Which should you choose?  

Both microneedling and fractional laser treatments in Singapore involve the risk of injury or infection. This is especially relevant in the case of improperly sterilised equipment or when the procedure is conducted by an untrained professional. On top of the infection, if the needle penetrates the skin too deeply, you can also risk permanent skin injury.

Your best option is to discuss your skin troubles and preferred outcomes with a certified health professional or a doctor. An aesthetician can help you circumvent the various procedures available for your skin type, outlining the costs and side effects accordingly. Then, make an informed decision and ideally have the treatment done in a professional or clinical setting to avoid any(rare) mishaps.
