No matter what we do, we simply cannot slow down the effects of time. As we age, our face can become a telltale sign of our age, in the skin’s tone and texture. There are many procedures that can help improve the look and feel of skin, while also providing a more youthful appearance, and one of the most popular and proven is the Fraxel laser.
What Is Fraxel?
Fraxel is a fractional laser that uses light energy to repair damaged skin and other skin conditions. Since its introduction into the aesthetic world, it has treated nearly a million patients all over the world, improving their skin tone and helping them look and feel younger.
What Does Fraxel treat?
Fraxel addresses many common skin concerns and causes of aging, including:
- Fine lines and wrinkles – like crow’s feet and brow lines
- Surface scarring – erasing effects of acne and other scarring
- Pigmentation – minimizing the appearance of age spots
- Sun damage – helping heal the appearance skin damage
- Actinic Keratosis (AK) – a common pre-cancerous skin condition
What Is the Procedure Like?
The Fraxel laser creates tiny microthermal zones deep within the skin that stimulates the skin’s natural repair process. The body pushes out the old and damaged skin through these zones, and replaces it with new skin cells. Every treatment replaces about 20% of the damaged skin while encouraging the natural production of collagen. This creates new cell growth and adds volume and firmness to the area, smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles while rejuvenating your skin.
The entire treatment typically lasts between 15 to 45 minutes, depending on your skin goals as well as the specific area you are targeting. Most patients report seeing optimal results after 1 to 5 treatments total.
When Will I See Results?
Fraxel works with the natural skin cells in your body, so results can take up to three weeks to fully take effect. As the laser stimulates collagen production, you will continue to notice lasting improvements and results with 2-3 months.
