What Is Fraxel Laser?

Fraxel Laser is a revolutionary skin resurfacing technology that combines precision and science to address various skin concerns. It utilizes non-ablative fractional laser technology to treat specific areas of the skin, stimulating collagen production and promoting the growth of new, healthier skin cells. This approach allows for precise targeting of damaged or aged skin while leaving surrounding tissues untouched. Fraxel Laser treatments are effective in reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, sun spots, scars, and other skin imperfections. With minimal downtime and exceptional results, it’s a preferred choice for those seeking a more youthful and rejuvenated complexion.

After your treatment, you can expect some initial redness and swelling along with mild tightness in your skin. However, this downtime is relatively short, allowing you to resume your regular activities within a few days. As your skin heals and regenerates, it may undergo some peeling and flaking, which is part of the natural process. Over time, your skin will reveal its rejuvenated beauty, with a noticeable reduction in fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, and other imperfections as your skin’s collagen production increases.

FRAXEL LASER FAQS

While Fraxel Laser treatments are not typically described as painful, patients may experience some discomfort during the procedure. To minimize any potential discomfort, a topical anesthetic is usually applied to the treatment area before the session. Some patients have likened the sensation to a mild prickling or warmth. However, the discomfort is usually well-tolerated and short-lived, and the treatment’s benefits often outweigh any temporary discomfort.

The number of appointments needed for Fraxel Laser treatments can vary based on your specific goals and the condition of your skin. In many cases, patients achieve noticeable results after a single session. However, some individuals may benefit from a series of treatments to address more significant skin concerns or for optimal results.

 

During your consultation, we will assess your skin, discuss your goals, and recommend the number of sessions required to achieve the desired outcome.

The timeline for when you’ll see results from Fraxel Laser treatment can vary depending on the specific concerns being addressed and the treatment’s intensity. Generally, some patients notice visible improvements in their skin within a few days to a week after the procedure. These initial results can include a reduction in skin irregularities, improved texture, and enhanced overall skin quality.

 

However, for the full benefits of Fraxel Laser treatment to become evident, it often takes several weeks to a few months. This is because the laser stimulates the skin’s natural healing and rejuvenation processes, leading to gradual and long-lasting improvements. Over time, you’ll see enhanced skin texture, a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles, diminished pigmentation issues, and an overall more radiant complexion.

Certainly, Fraxel Laser treatment can be a versatile and effective option to address various skin concerns. It’s a minimally invasive procedure that promotes skin rejuvenation by stimulating collagen production and improving skin texture and tone. It can be combined with Fillers, BOTOX, or MyEllevate. Let us know your interest in combinations of treatments during consultation, and we would be happy to offer you the best advice.

The risks associated with Fraxel Laser treatment are generally minimal but can include:

 

  • Temporary swelling and redness
  • Skin sensitivity
  • Hyperpigmentation or hypopigmentation
  • Infection
  • Scarring
  • Cold sores reactivation
