If you’ve spent time outside without sunscreen, you might have skin damage. If you’re in your 30s or beyond, you might be starting to notice signs of aging. Laser treatments are a good way to manage these common skin concerns.
Laser treatments are very effective because they don’t just treat the outer layer of skin. They penetrate deep into the skin to rebuild collagen, making skin youthful and radiant. Fraxel is a treatment commonly used for this reason. If you want to kick-start your body’s collagen-building process, read on to learn more about the many benefits.
Because Fraxel treatments are done in sections – not the entire body at once – your body’s surrounding tissue stays put, allowing you to heal quickly. The skin is resurfaced to promote smooth, youthful-looking skin. Fraxel improves the texture and tone of your skin, removing any dimpling and discoloration. Hyperpigmentation – brown spots caused by excessive sun exposure – is dramatically reduced.
Fraxel is also helpful for reducing signs of aging. Fine lines, wrinkles and crow’s feet can be eliminated with regular Fraxel treatments. Fraxel can also reduce scars caused by acne and surgery. It promotes new, healthy cells from the inside out.
The entire process is quick and relatively painless. A Fraxel treatment takes about 20-25 minutes for the entire face. There may be slight discomfort after the treatment, but the feeling is similar to a sensation of heat, like sunburn. The skin will look bronzed afterward, but any pain typically goes away within a few hours. Swelling may last several days.
There is virtually no down time required after a Fraxel treatment. You can go back to work or participate in sports and social activities soon after a treatment.
Is Fraxel Right for You?
There are many types of laser treatments available on the market. Consider everything before making the choice to use Fraxel. One of the disadvantages is the cost. With 3-5 sessions required, at $750 – $1,500 each, you could end up paying $7,500 for each round. Plus, the results don’t last forever. The better you take care of yourself, the longer the results will last. Are you willing to fork over this much money for temporary results?
