Fraxel laser treatments are an innovative method of skin rejuvenation. This procedure uses a laser tool to penetrate the outer layers of the dermis, promoting skin regeneration from the inside out. Fraxel laser treatments can be used on a wide range of minor skin imperfections, to create smoother, younger looking skin. Check out these five benefits Fraxel laser treatments offer!
Fraxel is a minimally-invasive procedure that does not require any incisions or stitches. The laser tool is placed on the surface of the skin, but the laser penetrates the outer layer using thousands of tiny microscopic spots. Patients are given a topical anesthetic to enhance their comfort during the procedure, but anesthesia and sedation are not required. Downtime is also minimal afterward, with most patients returning to normal activities immediately following treatment.
Treats One Area at a Time
Unlike other methods of skin rejuvenation, Fraxel laser treatments focus on specific areas of the skin at one time. The precision of the procedure allows surrounding skin areas to remain untouched by the effects of the laser. This speeds the healing process, and ensures treatment is restricted to the exact areas that need it most.
Promotes Skin’s Natural Processes
The ability to treat the outer layers of the skin is just the beginning of the results from Fraxel laser treatments. Because the tool is also able to penetrate the inner layers of skin, it triggers the body’s own ability to regenerate skin cells and collagen. During the normal aging process, the body does not produce as much collagen, so treatments that stimulate collagen production contribute to a younger appearance over the long term.
Works on Variety of Concerns
Fraxel skin treatments can be used on a wide range of skin imperfections, including:
• Age spots and hyperpigmentation
• Acne scarring and some surgical scars
• Stretch marks
• Fine lines and wrinkles
In addition, the procedure can be used to enhance skin texture and tone. With many potential uses, Fraxel laser treatments can be a solution for patients with different types of skin concerns.
Can be Used on Any Area of Skin
Fraxel laser treatments are not restricted to the face. This procedure can be used on any area of the body, including the neck, chest or back. Fraxel will effectively even out skin tone and improve skin texture anywhere it is used.
