How Fraxel® treatments work wonders

The technique behind Fraxel treatment is as revolutionary as the results it can deliver. Unlike other laser treatments, Fraxel treatments are 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 treatments stimulate 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 makeup, lifestyle and personal history all contribute to how your skin looks and feels. With Fraxel treatments, your physician can develop a treatment plan tailored to your skin’s individual needs.

By design, Fraxel Treatments can target between approximately 5 and 50 percent of the skin’s surface, leaving the remaining 50 to 95 percent available to quickly heal the treated areas. Since Fraxel treatments are so precise, they are 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.

Frequently Asked Questions About Fraxel Treatments

What are the benefits of Fraxel treatments?

  • Age and sun spots (pigmented lesions)
  • Brown spots/Pregnancy mask (melasma)
  • Acne scars and surgical scars

How many treatments will I need and how will they be spaced?

Everyone’s skin is different, but clinical studies suggest that for most people, maximum results are realized in just 4 to 6 sessions. They are usually spaced 2 to 6 weeks apart.

Do Fraxel treatments hurt?

Topical anesthesia is applied before the procedure and cold air is used on the treatment area during the procedure to minimize discomfort. After the treatments, most patients report a feeling similar to having gotten too much sun. It usually disappears after 1 to 3 hours.

What side effects can I expect after treatment and how long will they last?

You will have some degree of redness and swelling. The intensity and duration depends on how aggressive the treatment was and your particular healing characteristics. Other temporary side effects may include minor itching, dry skin, peeling or flaking, and a bronzed skin appearance. You will be given specific instructions about what to expect for your particular treatment plan and how to minimize the side effects.

What precautions should I take after treatment?

Wear sunscreen of SPF 30 or higher and avoid direct sun exposure while you’re healing for at least 3 months after your last treatment. Further protect yourself by wearing wide-brimmed hats if you expect to be out in the sun.

How long do the effects of Fraxel treatments last?

It depends on your particular condition and how you care for your skin. Once your skin is restored, continue to protect it as described above. For conditions such as melasma, it is very important to avoid direct sun exposure. Your physician will give you specific advice based on your individual needs.

Make a preemptive strike against a facelift.

With Fraxel treatment, you not only get dramatic results without the risks and complications of going under the knife. You can also prevent the need to ever consider a facelift. That’s because Fraxel treatment tightens the skin, actually defending against the loose, saggy skin that typically comes with age. So you can remove years from your appearance – and keep them off.

Fraxel treatment uses points of light to precisely treat thousands of microscopic areas of your skin. The treatment penetrates deep into the skin to remove old, damaged skin cells, stimulates your 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 ares like the neck, chest and hands.

Fraxel treatment delivers the fastest healing and maximum safety – on and off the face.

Results are immediate and progressive.

Soon after treatment, the surface of your skin will feel softer, look brighter and show a more even tone.

And over three to six months, you’ll get even more results as the deeper layers of skin continue to heal.
