If you have scars on your face that are the result of past problems related to acne, there is good news if you would like the scars removed. Treatments are available in the form of Fraxel® laser therapy. No longer will you have to settle for the thought of having to live with your acne scars for the rest of your life.
Fraxel® laser treatments can help to improve skin conditions from a variety of causes. Acne scarring is one of them. It can also help to get rid of any fine lines and wrinkles you may have as well as spots due to aging or sun damage.
Fraxel® treatments are done with the use of a unit that is designed to give consistent results and safe treatments. When activated, the fractional lasers penetrate the skin’s top layers. Fractional lasers are very small, the diameter being several times smaller than a human hair. The lasers serve two purposes. They help to resurface the skin, and the light energy stimulates the cells to produce new collagen. Collagen helps with proper pigmentation and gives the skin a fuller look, thereby eliminating wrinkles. The stimulation of collagen then helps with the skin’s natural rejuvenation process, part of which involves the healing that eliminates much of the appearance of acne scars.
If you elect to receive Fraxel® treatments, you should be able to see results in as little as one treatment. However, to be realistic, it could take a series of treatments to get the results you are expecting. Since these treatments work with your body’s natural skin cells, it could take up to three weeks for each treatment to take effect.
Fraxel® laser treatments have an excellent track record with over 800,000 procedures performed. Extensive research has gone into developing the treatment process, which is good for both men and women. It can be applied on the face as well as other parts of the body. It all depends on your unique wants and needs.
