What Does a Fraxel Laser Treat?
Laser technology allows dermatologists to treat a wide variety of skin flaws, and a variety of different types of lasers are used in a range of aesthetic procedures.
One of the most popular types of lasers is the Fraxel laser, which has grown to wide use because of its great versatility. It is safe and effective to use on various parts of the body, for a wide range of skin conditions and solutions, and in different layers of the skin…from surface to beneath the surface. With such a wide range of applications, dermatologists have found it to be a preferable tool for the treatment of the following:
- Crow’s feet
- Brow lines on the forehead
- Fine lines and wrinkles on the face
- Age spots and pigmentation
- Acne scars
- Additional scars
- Sun damage
- Actinic keratosis, a precancerous skin condition
- Oversized pores
- Uneven skin tone and contour
- And more…
One of the most attractive aspects of the Fraxel Laser is that it can be used to treat the neck, chest and hands, which are areas of cosmetic concern that often cannot be adequately solved via other methods. Fillers, for instance, are sometimes not recommended for the neck area. The Fraxel Laser, then, becomes a method that can eliminate lines and other signs of aging in the neck.
This laser’s ability to treat a very specific area, or ‘fraction,’ of the skin, without damaging surrounding areas is a big plus in very visible facial, neck, chest and hand areas. And this type of laser focuses energy on the surface of the skin, providing skin resurfacing benefits as well. As it destroys acne and other spots, it stimulates the production of collagen to create a smoother, fresher skin surface, with results showing just a few days after treatment, as the outer layer of skin safely falls away and your rejuvenated complexion is on display.
