Fraxel(r) resurfacing is a cosmetic treatment that uses fractional laser technology to change skin’s texture. It can be effectively used on a wide variety of skin colors and types, making it a versatile procedure.
Issues Treated by Fraxel(r) Resurfacing
As we age, we will begin to experience changes to our skin, whether through the natural aging process or experiences such as injury or illness. Some skin issues addressed by Fraxel(r) resurfacing include stretch marks, acne scars, wrinkles, age spots, discoloration in pigmentation, and more.
Whether minor or severe, Fraxel(r) resurfacing can be used to produce skin that is more smooth, glowing and youthful-looking.
How It Works
Fraxel(r) laser technology is different than other laser procedures. It uses pinpoint laser beams to provide precision treatment to target damaged cells beneath the skin’s surface.
The body’s healing process is used to metabolize the old skin cells and replace them with fresh cells. It is the new skin cells that provide a smooth appearance. Due to the Fraxel(r) laser’s precision, this method can be used to treat even the most sensitive skin areas like the chest, hands, and neck.
While you will see some results immediately, improved results will occur over a period of approximately three to six months as the layers of skin cells begin to heal.
The great thing about Fraxel(r) resurfacing is thatit can be used for nearly any patient. It’s a versatile procedure that is effective on skin of all colors, textures and types. At Breeze Laser Center, we will work with you to develop a treatment plan to meet the needs of your skin.
What to Expect
To make the procedure as comfortable as possible, a topical cream may be placed on the area to be treated to provide numbing, and cold air is sprayed along the area as it is treated for additional relief. Expect to feel a mild stinging sensation and there may be a bit of redness following treatment. We will give you instructions for dealing with these possibilities.
