What is Fraxel Laser Resurfacing?
Fraxel laser resurfacing is a simple, safe, and effective way to enjoying smoother skin and a more youthful appearance. Today, laser skin resurfacing treatments can achieve results similar to plastic surgery, yet without the cost, downtime, or potential complications those invasive cosmetic procedures entail. Fraxel lasers are the latest generation of cosmetic lasers, known for their versatility and effectiveness.
What are Fraxel Lasers Used to Treat?
Fraxel lasers can treat different layers of skin, various parts of the body, and a wide range of skin conditions, including fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, age spots, and abnormal pigmentation. Other types of damage caused by UV rays from the sun, and even actinic keratosis, a precancerous skin condition, can also be treated with Fraxel laser resurfacing of the skin.
Given the wide range of skin problems they can address, Fraxel laser resurfacing treatments can be precisely tailored to each patient’s needs.
How Does the Fraxel Laser Work?
Fraxel is an example of “fractional” laser resurfacing, named for the lasers’ ability to target a very small portion or fraction of the skin. The microscopic columns of Fraxel laser light destroy damaged cells, while stimulating collagen production in surrounding cells, which moisturizes and plumps the skin tissue, and promotes faster healing. The Fraxel resurfacing laser can simultaneously target both deep layers of the skin for treating brown pigmentation, wrinkles, and acne scarring, as well as superficial layers of the skin to treat tone, texture, uneven pigmentation, and other signs of aging.
