Restoring Youthfulness... What is Fraxel ?
The Fraxel Laser, was a breakthrough in skin rejuvenation. Today it is well known as a solid performer with consistent results.
Fraxel approaches skin treatment from a completely new direction. It targets damaged skin with microscopic laser columns that penetrate deep into the skin. These micro columns directly affect only a small area of skin at a time leaving the surrounding tissue untouched. The surrounding tissues then go into super repair mode, creating new cells, new collagen, new vascularization, and firmer more elastic skin.
Old and damaged cells are replaced with fresh, glowing, healthy skin.
What Conditions Does It Treat?
Fraxel is known for its great improvements in tone and texture of the skin. Skin appears smoother, fresher and younger.
Here are areas and conditions that Fraxel treats effectively:
1) **Reduces acne scars and surgical scars. **
2) Reduces wrinkles around the eyes,
3) Treats pre-cancerous lesions (actinic keratosis),
4) Targets sun damaged skin, (penetrates deeper skin layers)
5) Stimulates your body's own natural healing process.
6) Erases Brown spots.
**Acne and Surgical Scar Reduction**
We have highlighted this topic because Fraxel is one of the very few treatments for scarring that is neither invasive nor requiring a long down time. For scar reduction, usually multiple treatments are required.
How long before I see results? How long does it last?
Results are both immediate and progressive. Soon after the treatment your skin softer and smoother, brighter with a more even tone. The next 3 to 6 months will bring more improvement as the deeper layers of the skin continue to create new collagen. Results can be long lasting, depending on your lifestyle, age, skin condition and skin care regimen.
What to expect after treatment.
You may experience redness and swelling which diminishes the next day or the next several days. Your skin will naturally bronze over the next week or two and similarly as with a sunburn, your skin will flake and exfoliate normally, reveling fresher, glowing and smoother skin.
