Cosmetic treatments with medical lasers have become hugely popular with millions of satisfied patients. If you are displeased with your skin due to sun damage, wrinkles, scars, or hyperpigmentation, Fraxel® laser treatment could help rejuvenate your skin and greatly enhance your appearance.
Two types of lasers have traditionally been used for cosmetic skin treatment: ablative and non-ablative. The ablative form uses extreme heat to vaporize undesirable tissue. Although this method is quite effective, it involves significant side effects and requires weeks of downtime for recovery. Non-ablative treatments involve few side effects, but typically require multiple treatments for optimal results.
A Look at Fraxel® Laser Treatment
Fraxel® laser treatment is different from other laser treatments because it offers the effectiveness of ablative treatments combined with the gentleness of non-ablative laser treatments. With Fraxel®, you get the best of both worlds.
What are the Benefits of a Fraxel®?
Patients typically report fresher, smoother skin that appears more youthful. The erasing of skin blemishes and brown spots is often reported, as well as reduced lines and wrinkles. Every case is different, but studies have found that most patients respond best to a treatment regimen of multiple sessions.
Your Fraxel® laser results can be expected to be both immediate and cumulative. Ideal enhancement is normally visible within just a few months. This treatment regimen and time schedule will give your skin the time to heal completely, producing new collagen and elastin fibers to replace older skin tissue.
How Long Will My Results Last?
There is no one answer to this question. How long your results last depends on factors like your skin care regimen, diet, and genetics, among other considerations. When you come in for your laser treatment, you can be provided with precise skin care advice tailored to your individual needs and skin type.
