Fraxel Laser Resurfacing
Fraxel® is a proven, non-invasive laser treatment that stimulates collagen production, lessens visible effects of aging, and makes the skin appear healthier and more youthful. It is the original fractional laser skin resurfacing treatment, and is still considered one of the best options for treating an array of cosmetic and aging-related skin conditions.
How does it work?
Unlike traditional CO2 lasers, which treat the entire skin surface, the Fraxel® laser targets only a fraction of the skin at a time, leaving the surrounding tissue intact. This “fractional” treatment allows your body to heal the skin much faster than if the entire area were treated at once.
The versatile Fraxel® is a proven treatment for the following:
- Smoothing skin tone and texture
- Erasing acne scars and other scarring
- Tightening wrinkles and saggy skin
- Softening deep frown lines and wrinkles
- Reducing hyperpigmentation caused by melasma or sun damage
- Improve age spots, sunspots and redness
- Treating pre-cancerous Actinic Keratosis (AK)
Additionally, Fraxel® treatment stimulates natural collagen production, so your own skin is activated to produce new, healthy cells as it heals following treatment.
Because Fraxel® uses a fractional laser technology, it has a much faster recovery time than other ablative procedures; however, recovery time varies from patient to patient. Most patients report feeling like they have a mild sunburn after treatment, but this usually subsides after a few days. Depending on the aggressiveness of the treatment, you may experience a shorter or longer period of downtime.
Is it safe?
The Fraxel repair® laser has offered excellent results to patients for more than 10 years. Our licensed aestheticians will give you specific instructions about what to expect for your particular treatment and how to minimize side effects. The risk of long term side effects is extremely low.
When will I see results?
Soon after treatment (about 1 to 3 weeks), the surface of your skin will feel softer, look brighter and show a more even tone. Most patients get optimal results in 1 to 5 treatments.
And over three to six months, you’ll get even more results as the deeper layers of skin continue to heal. Results can last for years depending on your age and skin condition.
All laser treatments are performed by our licensed aestheticians, who each have over 10 years of experience in cosmetic skincare. Contact us to more about how we can make your skin more beautiful with Fraxel repair® laser skin resurfacing.
