Your Fraxel Laser Treatment

The handheld applicator of the Fraxel laser system device is passed over the desired area(s) multiple times. For the face, it can take about 30 minutes or so.
Once complete, your skin is cleansed again and treated with protective skincare products.
Are Fraxel Laser Treatments Right for You?
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 technologies are very effective because they don’t just treat the outer layer of skin. They penetrate deep pass the skin’s surface to rebuild collagen, making skin youthful and radiant. Fraxel laser 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 for a short recovery period. After a single treatment, the skin is resurfaced to promote a smooth, youthful-looking complexion. Most patients only need one or two sessions to achieve their desired results.
Fraxel laser treatment improves the texture and tone of your skin, removing acne scars and any dimpling and discoloration. Hyperpigmentation – brown spots caused by excessive sun exposure – is dramatically reduced.
Fraxel laser treatment is also helpful for reducing signs of aging. Fine lines, wrinkles and crow’s feet can be eliminated with regular Fraxel treatments. Fraxel treatment can also reduce scars caused by acne and surgery. It promotes new, healthy skin 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 minimal downtime required after a Fraxel treatment. However, more aggressive treatments may require some downtime. You can go back to work or participate in sports and social activities soon after a treatment.
There are many types of nonsurgical skin resurfacing treatments available on the market. Consider everything before making the choice to use Fraxel laser for healthy skin.
