Fraxel Laser Skin Resurfacing
FRAXEL LASER SKIN RESURFACING FOR WRINKLES, ACNE SCARS, SURGICAL SCARS & HYPERPIGMENTATION
Fraxel laser skin resurfacing is a true breakthrough in laser technology; it is the original company that created Fractional Laser technology where laser energy is divided into an almost microscopic pixel pattern on the skin.
HOW FRAXEL LASER WORKS
Fraxel Laser Treatment is designed to target aging and damaged skin by creating microscopic “wounds” within the targeted areas well beneath the skin’s outermost layer. In this way, Fraxel® Laser treatments trigger the body’s own natural production of new collagen and skin cells. And because Fraxel® Laser Treatment combines the impact of ablative lasers with the gentleness of non-ablative lasers, healing occurs so quickly that there is very little downtime for patients *usually a day or two). This laser treatment needs to be repeated 3 to 6 times depending upon the degree of skin damage, but it allows you to continue life without the longer downtime of Fractional CO2 lasers.
Some results will be visible after one treatment, but multiple treatments may be necessary to achieve the desired effect. Note that just after the treatments, your skin may appear red and exhibit some swelling, similar to the look and feel of a sunburn. This typically resolves in several days, if not sooner. As the old, treated skin flakes away, fresher, healthier-looking skin will be revealed.
