Fraxel® Anti-aging Treatments
Fraxel reduces the effects of time on the skin, uncovering more youthful, radiant skin. Clinical studies have proven that the Fraxel is the gold standard; is less painful than other similar treatments; takes less time; is less costly; and, most importantly, is safe for the removal of wrinkles and scars. When combined with the Zimmer air-cooling system, the treatment feels like a series of small rubber band snaps.
Through precise thermal manipulation of the epidermal and dermal tissue, it remodels collagen through the papillary dermis to promote collagen production and the production of new and beautiful skin. It's great for the following areas:
- Face: surface wrinkles, brown spots, pigmentation, roughness, acne scars
- Face, Neck & Chest: acne scars
- Neck: wrinkles and pigmentation
- Chest: sun damage, wrinkles, freckles, brown spots
- Hands: age spots, weathered appearance
- Arms: age spots, rough skin, actinic keratoses
- Hips & Abdomen: stretch marks
Common Questions and Answers
What is the Fraxel Laser?Fraxel is a laser used to treat damaged and aging skin by harmlessly penetrating the outer layer of skin, but only selectively targeting the bad skin. This method protects the skin from enduring too much damage at once and eliminates much of the downtime associated with CO or Erbium laser resurfacing treatment.
Is it FDA-approved?The Fraxel Laser has received FDA clearances for skin resurfacing procedures; the photocoagulation of pigmented lesions, such as lentigos (age spots); solar lentigos (sun spots) and dyschromia; treatment of periorbital wrinkles; and for dermatological conditions requiring the coagulation of soft tissue. It is also approved for the treatment of scars and wrinkles.
What are the benefits of the Fraxel Laser treatment?This treatment eliminates old epidermal pigmented cells. It also penetrates deeply into the dermis.
What conditions can be treated with the Fraxel technology?Wrinkles, poor texture, large pores, sun spots, brown spots, scars, melasma, and uneven pigmentation can be treated successfully with the Fraxel laser. Optimal improvement is usually visible in about two to three months.
How many treatments will I need?We recommend between 3–5 treatments for optimal results.
What happens before treatment?Your skin will be cleansed thoroughly and a topical anesthetic will be applied. The procedure is relatively painless, and takes about 15 minutes to conduct. It is safe for all skin types.
What are the side effects after treatment?Side effects are minimal and usually limited to a sunburn-like redness which disappears in about 24 hours. Within 24 hours, new epidermal skin will develop and your skin will have a bronze appearance which can last from three days up to two weeks depending on what level of treatment you have received. As the new epidermal tissue replaces the damaged tissue, your skin will flake off. Moisturizer can counteract some of the flaking effect.
When can I go back to work?Typically patients find they can go back to work soon after treatment or the next day.
Can I wear makeup or shave right away?You may apply make-up or shave soon after treatment.
What can I do to protect my new skin?Absolutely be sure to wear at least SPF-30 sunscreen and apply twice a day. You must completely avoid the sun and take extra care to protect your skin from more damage.
