The continuous battle for forever young skin wages on…We strive to find the best product, treatment, diet, etc to keep our skin looking and feeling young and beautiful…In honor of our steadfast search I bring you Fraxel…Why Fraxel you ask? Read on and learn about this amazing anti-aging treatment!
Fraxel® provides similar dramatic results to laser skin resurfacing, dermabrasions and deep chemical peels, but without the extended recovery time or anesthesia. Fraxel® lifts away years from your face and improves your skin’s texture and tone to fight fine lines, wrinkles, stretch marks and acne scars.
Many patients choose Fraxel® because it:
- Fills in acne scars
- Minimizes stretch marks
- Clears sun-damaged skin
- Smoothes fine lines and wrinkles
- Shrinks the appearance of pores
- Blends uneven pigmentation
Simply put, Fraxel® treatment promotes your skin’s own healing process, resulting in natural rejuvenation that removes years from your appearance. Depending on your skin, you can decide how you want to attain the remarkable results Fraxel® treatment delivers. Aggressive treatments require fewer sessions and result in more post treatment side-effects – meaning a few days of social downtime. Less aggressive treatments accomplish the same results, with a few more treatment sessions and less pronounced side-effects. For some types of skin and skin conditions, gentle and/or fewer treatments are best. Fraxel® treatment was specifically engineered to give your skin professional complete treatment control, based on your particular needs.
How Fraxel® treatment works
The technology behind Fraxel® treatment is as revolutionary as the results it can deliver. Unlike other laser treatments, Fraxel® treatment is able to precisely treat thousands of microscopic areas of skin, using pinpoint laser beams that penetrate beneath the skin’s surface to eliminate old, damaged skin cells. Fraxel® treatment stimulates the body’s own natural healing process which replaces damaged skin with fresh, glowing, healthy skin.
Your personalized Fraxel® treatment plan
Your skin is unique – your genetic make-up, lifestyle and personal history all contribute to how your skin looks and feels. With Fraxel® treatment, your skin professional can develop a treatment plan tailored to your skin’s individual needs. By design, Fraxel® treatments can target between approximately 5 to 50 percent of the skin’s surface, leaving the remaining 50 to 95 percent available to quickly heal the treated areas. Since Fraxel® treatment is so precise, it is safe and effective on delicate skin areas like the neck, chest and hands, in addition to the face. You can expect two levels of results, immediate and progressive. Immediately after initial healing is complete, the surface of your skin will feel softer, look brighter, and tone will start to become even. Progressive results occur over the next three to six months as the deeper layers of skin continue to heal.
