Fraxel® fractional laser works by creating thousands of microscopic treatment channels in your skin. This allows for precise targeting of the treatment areas, while leaving healthy skin whole and untouched. Laser resurfacing activates the body’s natural properties of healing and rejuvenation, while the mix of treated and untreated areas means minimal downtime and faster healing.
There are a number of complexion concerns that can be improved with the help of Fraxel® laser resurfacing:
Even after acne blemishes have long since cleared up, the evidence of a troubled complexion can remain behind for months or years. If you have acne scars or hyperpigmentation and you no longer suffer from any active breakouts, Fraxel® can help restore a more even skin tone and texture.
Age spots and wrinkles on the hands can make you look just as prematurely aged as grey hair or crow’s feet. Fraxel® laser resurfacing treatments can address both of these concerns. Any darker pigmented age spots absorb the laser energy, then flake away as the skin underneath rejuvenates and renews. At the same time, collagen production increases, allowing skin to regain a smoother, younger-looking appearance.
Not everyone finds freckles charming—and almost no one feels positive about age spots. Both hyperpigmentation problems develop as the result of cumulative sun exposure, and both can be effectively faded with the help of Fraxel® laser resurfacing.
Whether you’re struggling with enlarged pores or a dull-looking complexion, poor skin texture can be improved with the help of Fraxel®. Because laser resurfacing can treat multiple issues at the same time, Fraxel® can be ideal for those men and women who have more than one concern they’d like to address.
Fraxel® can be an excellent treatment option for scars on the skin, including stretch marks. Laser resurfacing promotes collagen remodeling, which causes indented stretch marks to “fill in” after several sessions. After a series of treatments, stretch marks should look and feel much less noticeable.
Sun damage is cumulative, becoming more noticeable as time passes. The impact that sun exposure can have on the skin ranges from age spots and freckles to premature wrinkling and poor overall skin tone and texture. Fraxel® targets damaged epithelial cells while leaving healthy skin cells whole and intact, allowing your complexion to heal from the inside out.
Laser resurfacing offers a longer-term solution to fine lines and wrinkles in the upper face than BOTOX®. As collagen production increases after your Fraxel® treatment, skin firms and becomes more elastic. This helps fade wrinkles, leaving you looking younger and more refreshed.
Two of the causes of wrinkles, particularly through the lower face, are collagen depletion and skin laxity. Laser resurfacing treatments cause renewed collagen production, so your skin recovers a firmer, more youthful quality. The increase in collagen softens existing wrinkles, while offering mild to moderate skin tightening. Fraxel® is often used in combination with injectable fillers for wrinkles in the lower face.
The advanced technology offered by Fraxel® fractionated laser skin resurfacing means you can expect minimal discomfort and downtime, typically on par with what you might notice after a sunburn. Any redness or swelling should fade quickly, and you can return to your normal daily routine right away.
After laser resurfacing, it’s critical that you protect your treated skin from sun exposure. This helps prevent sun damage to delicate, healing skin, and also ensures that your results are long-lasting.
While many men and women see improvement in their complexion after only a single session, a series of treatments may be recommended for the best results. Following your full treatment, you can expect to see more even skin tone, smoother skin texture and diminished lines, wrinkles and other imperfections, including scars and stretch marks.
