Fraxel® Laser is a revolutionary approach to all laser resurfacing procedures. Simply put, Fraxel® treatment promotes your skin’s own healing process, resulting in natural rejuvenation that removes years from your appearance. It can treat areas on the face, including around the lips and eyes, and body parts including neck, arms, and hands. There is no cutting of the skin, so patients can achieve the same positive effects of ablative laser procedures and deep chemical peels without the associated “downtime” or potential side effects.
You will see improvements with each treatment session. Clinical studies suggest that 3-5 treatments spaced about 14 to 28 days apart produce a gradual remodeling of dermal matrix components until complete healing occurs and “good” material that contains collagen and elastin replaces old epidermal and dermal tissue. Over a period of 1-3 months, clinical improvement in photo-aged skin correlates with dermal repair and positive skin changes.
Anyone can get Fraxel® fractionated laser skin resurfacing – it is safe enough to be used on all skin types and colors. And because we all have unique skin, genetic make-up, lifestyles, and personal history, the condition of our skin contributes to how our skin looks and feels. At Clarity Medical Spa, we help you create a treatment plan for Fraxel® skin resurfacing. This plan is developed to target your skin’s specific needs.
The results appear immediately and continue to progress. Soon after the treatment, you will notice that the surface of your skin feels softer and smoother, looks brighter, and has a more even tone. Improvement will continue over the next 3-6 months since the deeper layers of the skin will continue to create new collagen. Of course, the extent of how long your results last will depend on your lifestyle, age, skin condition, and personal skin regimen.
At Clarity Medical Spa, we try to make Fraxel® treatments as comfortable as possible and apply a topical numbing cream before the procedure. We also use cold during the procedure to minimize discomfort. Many patients report feeling a sensation similar to a sunburn, which usually goes away within a few hours.
Following a Fraxel® treatment, you may notice some redness and swelling. The intensity of these side-effects depends on how aggressive the treatment was. You should follow the recommended post-treatment practices, like applying ice, keeping the treated area moisturized, and more. Your unique healing characteristics can also affect your experience after the treatment, since everyone’s skin is unique. Some patients have greater than expected reactions when they have less aggressive treatments, while others have very few side-effects even though they had aggressive treatments.
