Fraxel® treatment is a safe, non-ablative laser skin procedure that can resurface damaged skin and uncover the youthful skin you long for.
The fraxel dual laser has the unique advantage of two treatment modes – one to specifically target concerns such as wrinkles and acne scarring, and the other to effectively target pigmentation, tone and other more superficial signs of ageing. Fraxel treatment will be tailored to your desired outcomes and can even be combined so that you receive the added benefits of both a superficial and deep laser treatment, both on and off the face.
FRAXEL® RESURFACING TREATMENTS EFFECTIVELY TARGET BOTH THE SURFACE AND DEEPER LAYERS OF THE SKIN FOR A SMOOTHER, FRESHER, YOUNGER LOOKING APPEARANCE.
- Improved tone and texture
- Reduced wrinkles and pore size
- Treatment of unwanted brown spots
- Improved appearance of acne scars and surgical scars
- Effective treatment of pre-cancerous lesions (actinic keratosis)
- Excellent treatment useful for any part of body
You do a lot to look and feel great, finding the time to enjoy life to the fullest while still taking care of your body and skin. Yet, the effects of sun, pollution, stress and fatigue can add up, keeping your skin from looking as good as you feel. Fraxel® treatment uses patented fractional laser technology to target ageing and sun damaged skin.
HOW DOES FRAXEL WORK?
Fraxel® treatment uses patented fractional technology to target damaged skin with microscopic laser columns that penetrate deep into the skin. The laser treats only a fraction of tissue at a time, leaving the surrounding tissue untouched, which promotes rapid healing. This stimulates your body’s own natural healing process, replacing the old and new damaged cells with fresh, glowing, healthy skin.
WHEN DO THE RESULTS APPEAR, AND HOW LONG DO THEY LAST?
The results are both immediate and progressive. Soon after the treatment, the surface of your skin will feel softer and smoother, look brighter and show 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 are long lasting depending on your lifestyle, age, skin condition and skin care regime.
HOW MANY FRAXEL® TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?
Desired outcomes are typically reached in multiple treatments but we usually recommend a minimum of 3. The specific number of treatments is tailored to your goals and desired results as well as your lifestyle. We will work with you to identify the appropriate level of treatment and your preferred downtime.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT AFTER MY FRAXEL® TREATMENT?
Immediately after the treatment your skin will be red similar to a minor sunburn. This may last a few days and depending on the level and type of the treatment, you may also experience some swelling and or flaking of the skin.
If pigmentation is present on the skin, this may darken soon after treatment and last a few days until it gently flakes away revealing fresher, glowing and smoother looking and feeling skin.
IS FRAXEL®TREATMENT SAFE?
Fraxel® treatment is a safe option backed by extensive research. Of course, as with any laser procedure there’s always some risk* and/or downtime. You should discuss this with your clinician prior to treatment.
