What is a Fraxel® Laser Treatment?
A non-invasive, fractional laser therapy that provides natural-looking results and slows down the aging process, Fraxel® is an effective solution for those who do not like injections or other forms of skin treatment.
Fraxel® contains advanced “smart scanning” technology to ensure safety and consistency while moving over the treated area. The fractional laser penetrates top skin layers one fraction at a time, stimulating the production of collagen – the protein responsible for the structure of your skin – and leaving the surrounding, healthy skin intact. The laser also resurfaces the top layer of your skin, encouraging the natural rejuvenation process and smoothing scars, wrinkles and fine lines.
What are the Benefits of Fraxel® Treatment?
Fraxel® is designed to be fast, simple and effective, offering several benefits over other skin treatments, such as:
- Restructuring the surface of your skin using science, not chemical fillers, is safer and requires zero downtime afterward.
- Fraxel® contains a wide variety of treatment options, making it a viable, customizable treatment for several skin conditions.
- It can successfully treat wrinkles, fine lines, age and sun spots, melasma, actinic keratosis and acne/surgery scars.
- With an average treatment time of 15-45 minutes, patients can get treated and resume the rest of their day with ease.
During the procedure, topical anesthesia may be used to ease discomfort, and cold air is usually concentrated on the area during treatment to further minimize pain. Your procedure will be tailored to fit your specific skin concerns and needs.
What are the Side Effects of Fraxel® Laser Treatment?
After treatment, most patients report feeling like they have a sunburn, which usually subsides in 1-3 hours. Other minor side effects include swelling, redness, minor itching, dry skin, peeling or flaking. All of these typically fade after a few days. Doctor Avron will inform you of all possible side effects during your consultation, as well as how to properly treat these side effects.
How Long Will My Results Last?
The results of a Fraxel® laser treatment depend not only on your particular skin condition and treatment course, it also depends on how well you take care of your skin after treatment. Doctor Avron will advise you on how to maintain your results.
