Of all the skin rejuvenation treatments that are available, laser resurfacing is quickly becoming of the most popular choices for its ability to penetrate underneath the skin surface and treat aging and damaged skin at a cellular level. At Guelph Medical Laser and Skin Centre in Guelph, Ontario, our Fraxel® laser treatment provides safe and effective resurfacing with minimal healing time required.
Contact us today to schedule a consultation with our medical team and find out how Fraxel® laser resurfacing can improve your cosmetic skin concerns.
What is Fraxel® Laser Resurfacing?
Developed over the last decade, Fraxel® features fractionated laser technology that works by creating microchannels within the skin, leaving surrounding healthy skin and tissues undamaged. This process stimulates the skin’s natural healing process, resulting in increased collagen production and the eventual resurfacing of damaged skin and reduction in the appearance of visible signs of aging.
What Does the Fraxel® Laser Treat?
The benefits of Fraxel® laser treatment can be used on several skin conditions, including:
- Crow’s feet, brow lines, and other fine lines and wrinkles
- Acne scarring
- Age spots and other pigmentation irregularities
- Sun damage
- Actinic keratosis, a common precancerous skin condition.
- Enlarged pores
- Surgical scarring
While some skin rejuvenation treatments only provide temporary improvement, Fraxel® creates gradual, subtle enhancement that is long-lasting and easy to maintain with a good skincare regimen and through maintenance treatments.
Is Fraxel® Laser Treatment Safe?
Approved by both the FDA and Health Canada, Fraxel® is safe for all skin types and has been continuously updated over the last 10 years, with over one million treatments performed worldwide. Our medical team at Guelph Medical Laser and Skin Centre is extensively trained in the safe and effective use of this technology, with slight redness akin to a sunburn being the most common side effect of treatment. This should subside after a few days.
Am I a Good Candidate for Fraxel® Laser Treatment?
During your consultation with our medical team, several factors such as your health, medical history, individual skin condition, and cosmetic goals will be evaluated in order to determine if Fraxel® laser treatment is the best solution for you. Certain contraindicating medical conditions may require further evaluation, and our team will advise you on how many sessions you may need in order to achieve your desired results.
