We all wish we could turn back the hands of time. And even though it’s not possible to do that literally (unless you have a DeLorean stashed somewhere), you can make it look like you have! Fraxel is a laser technology that is proven to take the years right off of your face. You can look the age that you feel! Start telling everyone that you’re 10 or 20 years younger like you’ve always wanted. They won’t be able to tell the difference!
Whether you have tried fillers or microdermabrasion or another treatment entirely, Fraxel will give you similar or even better results. It works to eliminate wrinkles, lines, scars, discoloration, sun damage, and even pre-cancerous conditions like Actinic Keratosis. It really makes a difference, and best of all, it’s non-invasive. No needles, no knives, no surgery whatsoever.
How Does Fraxel Work?
The doctor will apply the treatment through a hand-held “scanner” that releases lasers into the top skin layers. The energy from these lasers helps activate collagen and other parts of the skin, rejuvenating the stop surface level from the inside out. Once the collagen is active, your wrinkles and and scars will get rid of themselves!
It’s a simple process that takes less than an hour, even for the most complex and lengthy treatments. While the effects might not be immediate, they are usually seen within the first few weeks of treatment (usually after 1-5 treatments). And the best part is that it is all natural; it is simply working with your body’s natural cells and substances.
Does It Hurt?
Fraxel hardly has any physical effects. Many patients do say that their skin is tingly or itchy, almost like a slight sunburn, right after the procedure, but for the most part that is it! However, just as every person’s skin is different, everyone will react to the Fraxel procedure differently. You will be given a slight local anesthetic to apply right before the procedure to help with any odd sensations that come during the lasering.
