Fraxel Laser Information

What is Fraxel?

Fraxel is a non-invasive laser treatment that treats the skin a fraction at a time. These columns of fractional laser penetrate the skin’s top layers and stimulate collagen production while resurfacing the top layer of the skin. The skin naturally rejuvenates itself by regenerating collagen growth, which leads to smoothed out wrinkles, scars and fine lines and skin that is glowing, smooth and healthy-looking.

Fraxel Turns Back the Clock

If you haven’t heard of Fraxel, the miraculous laser treatment that can do everything from rid of acne scars to reduce the signs of aging, it’s time to learn more about it. First, you should know exactly how Fraxel works and why it’s becoming the most-requested cosmetic treatment for big time stars, such as Kim Kardashian. If you want a natural look that makes you appear years younger, much healthier and well rested, then Fraxel is the perfect answer. This amazing light-energy gives your skin’s natural rejuvenating process a kick-start.

What to Expect During Your Fraxel Laser Treatment

When you first arrive at the dermatologist’s office, a numbing cream will be applied to the skin and you will need to let it sit for about one hour. Next you will relax in the chair as the clinician, board-certified dermatologist or physician’s assistant performs the procedure. Most Fraxel treatments typically take between 14-45 minutes, depending on the treatment areas. The majority of patients experience the maximum results with 1-5 treatments of Fraxel. Since you are basically injuring and resurfacing the top layer of skin, there will be about three to four days of downtime after a Fraxel treatment. But if you ask patients who have received Fraxel, they will tell you it is well worth it after the results they see about one week down the road. Taking proper care of your skin after Fraxel is extremely important. It is recommended to keep the entire treated area moist with Vaseline or Aquaphor. It’s very important to wear sunscreen and moisturizer after receiving a Fraxel treatment.

Fraxel is Not Just for the Face

One of the first places to show the signs of aging is our hands. Just think about how much time you have spent outdoors without first applying the proper amount of sunscreen to the hands. Because so many facial moisturizers contain SPF, it’s easy to remember to protect the face. But applying sunscreen to the hands is often forgotten. Many patients seeking a younger look for their hands will turn to Fraxel for fantastic results.

The Many Skin Issues Fraxel Tackles

Since Fraxel is such a powerhouse in the skin-rejuvenating department, there are not many skin ailments and issues that this cutting edge laser cannot fix. Fraxel is great for treating and ridding of acne scars, surgical scars, actinic keratosis, melasma, age and sun spots and wrinkles. When you want to take your skincare regimen one step further and truly reverse the signs of aging or get rid of your scars, Fraxel is the best non-invasive cosmetic treatment to help you reach you aesthetic goals. If you are looking for a non-invasive treatment to tackle acne scars, age spots, melasma, or the visible signs of aging, then Fraxel is a terrific treatment to explore. Fraxel is already hugely popular amongst beauty insiders and Hollywood stars for the way it rejuvenates the skin and leaves a naturally youthful and gorgeous complexion.  Fraxel is one of the best treatment options for all
