Turn back the clock on aging
After your very first Fraxel Laser Treatment, you will
begin to feel the difference in your skin, as it gradually
becomes softer, smoother and fresher. Fine lines around
your eyes will noticeably fade. So will uneven coloring
and the brown spots caused by aging and sun exposure. Fraxel is considered the treatment of choice for Acne Scarring and effective for other scars such as post traumatic or surgical scarring.
How it works:
The innovative Fraxel
SR Laser is specially designed to alter only fractional
volumes of the target tissue. Similar to precise alteration
of photographs and paintings, the clinical effect of
this treatment technique is to alter the appearance
of aging and sun-damaged skin. The creation of tiny
microscopic wounds results in a wound healing process
and a response to the coagulation of collagen fibers.
||How it Feels:
|Patients with Acne Scarring or surgical scarring. Suited for light to darker skin types.
||The anesthetic requires
45-60 minutes to take full effect. The treatment
is then performed using the lipid base anesthetic
ointment as the contact lubricant. The blue tint
and anesthetic is washed off immediately after treatment.
A treatment typically will take approximately 20-25
||Treatment is well tolerated
and feels like a prickling sensation. A topical
anesthetic ointment is applied prior to treatment
to allay any discomfort. Highly effective treatment with minimal downtime. Results can be comparable to full resurfacing techniques.
||Before & After Photos
|Mild swelling should subside
within a day or so, and redness usually fades over
several days. Patients can apply make-up immediately
after treatment and return to routine activities.
||Clinical studies suggest
that 3-5 treatments spaced about 2 to 4 weeks apart
produce a gradual remodeling of dermal matrix components,
until complete healing occurs and "good"
material that contains collagen and elastin replaces
old epidermal and dermal tissue. Over a period of
1-3 months, clinical improvement in photo-aged skin
correlates with dermal repair and positive skin
