Fraxel laser treatment, also known as fractional laser, is a treatment that uses a laser to destroy the outer layer of skin cells and help improve the appearance of pores and wrinkles. The laser is used to treat many conditions, including acne, rosacea, and photo-damaged skin, but it is most commonly used to treat hyperpigmentation and aging skin. The laser is also used to reduce the size of facial wrinkles, such as nasolabial folds and crow’s feet, and other surface skin imperfections. As a result, the laser can be an effective treatment for the signs of aging, such as fine lines and wrinkles, but it can also be used to treat other conditions, such as cellulite and varicose veins.
Fraxel laser treatment is a powerful, yet gentle treatment that uses laser light to improve the appearance of aging skin, acne and hyperpigmentation, as well as other skin imperfections. The laser light treats the dermis and papillary layer of the skin, which helps to reduce the appearance of aging, improve the texture of the skin, and reduce the appearance of acne. The laser light also helps to reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation and brown spots on the skin. Also known as fractional laser treatment or laser resurfacing, it is considered a cosmetic treatment that can be used to improve the appearance of the skin and can also be used in combination with other cosmetic treatments such as injectables and topical treatments. The Fraxel laser treatment can provide:
– Improved skin tone
– Reduced fine lines
– Smoother skin texture
The downtime to ablative Fraxel (Fraxel Repair) is typically a week, during which time it is normal to experience redness, swelling, and a throbbing sensation (similar to a sunburn) for the first two days. Between days three to five, the skin will start to roughen up and peel; again, quite like how a sunburn heals. It is important to avoid picking at the flakes and to allow the skin to heal on its own, otherwise, there is a risk of scarring.
Fraxel Dual, on the other hand, comes with minimal side effects and, since it is non-ablative, a less-intense downtime. Still, patients should expect some redness, swelling and peeling afterward, but it will settle in a few days.
The results of a Fraxel laser treatment are visible after the skin has had time to heal, typically within a week. These benefits include clearer skin, fewer wrinkles, a reduction in acne, and a more even skin tone. Some patients may experience results faster, but this is dependent upon metabolism and aftercare instructions.
Fraxel laser treatment is a revolutionary, safe and noninvasive procedure that can reverse the early signs of aging and maintain a youthful and healthy glow to the skin. Fraxel laser treatment is safe and effective for the treatment of:
– Periorbital fine lines
– Irregular texture
– Sun spots and age spots (pigmented lesions)
Fraxel laser treatment uses points of light to precisely treat thousands of microscopic areas of the skin, targeting them without damaging the surrounding tissues. The treatment removes old, damaged skin cells, stimulates the body’s own natural healing process, and replaces the cells with fresh, glowing, healthy skin. Because the technology is so precise, Fraxel treatment works not only on the face but also on delicate skin areas like the neck, chest, and hands, making it one of the most versatile laser treatments on the market.
Fraxel treatments are long-lasting and highly effective; to maintain results, it is recommended to receive treatments every year. Because the laser conditions the skin, the results from repeated treatments tend to last longer, with some patients experiencing results for as long as two years with the proper skincare routine.
