Fraxel laser skin resurfacing is an FDA approved medical treatment procedure that’s designed to properly help restore and rejuvenate your skin so that it looks like its natural self once again. The Fraxel laser is designed to run deep in your skin and improve skin tone and texture, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and help to eliminate the appearance of scars due to either sunspots or acne. Read on to learn more about Fraxel.
How Does It Work?
As a non-invasive laser procedure, Fraxel works to help target and stimulate the production of collagen within your skin. Thus leaving you with a younger and more rejuvenated look without having to go under the knife or deal with an extensive amount of recovery time. By using specially designed pinpoint laser beams, Fraxel works hard to eliminate old and damaged cells and replace them with the ongoing production of fresh cells that will give your skin a glowing appearance.
Who Is It Ideal For?
Unlike other laser or skin resurfacing procedures, Fraxel can be used on any person with any type of skin type or color. By targeting the specific needs of your skin, Fraxel can help cure the following:
- Acne Scars
- Sun Spots
- Stretch Marks
- Large Pores
- Irregular Skin Texture
Is It Painful?
All laser procedures come with at least some amount of discomfort. However, by applying a topical numbing cream to your skin and by using some cold air during the procedure, you will feel more relaxed and comfortable.
How Long Do Results Take?
The great thing about Fraxel is that there are two types of results associated with the process: immediate results and results that take 3-6 months. The immediate results that you can expect include smoother and healthier looking skin. However, the real results won’t start to show for another 3-6 months as your skin works to produce more collagen and retarget your existing skin cells.
