Boost Your Confidence and Love Your Skin With Fraxel® Laser Resurfacing Treatment

Laser treatments are superstars of non-invasive cosmetic treatments, offering multiple benefits including evening skin tone and texture, tightening, resurfacing, and brightening. Fraxel® laser treatment is one such example, boasting multiple benefits such as erasing fine lines, removing sunspots, and stimulating healthy skin growth.

Before you take advantage of this effective laser treatment, you’ll want to make sure you understand the process and feel confident going into your treatment. The medical providers at Cosmetic Laser Centers℠ are equipped with the knowledge and technology to help you achieve optimal results.

Here are five things to know before you receive Fraxel® DUAL laser treatment from Cosmetic Laser Centers.

Targeted Treatment for Healthier Looking Skin

The Fraxel® laser produces thousands of tiny laser columns that penetrate deep into your skin to expedite collagen production and stimulate the regrowth of healthy skin cells.

Fraxel® DUAL laser is often considered to be the ultimate fractional, non-ablative skin resurfacing tool in the cosmetic treatment field.

“Fractional” refers to the hyper-targeted area of actively treated skin that leaves surrounding skin unaffected, a feature of the treatment that contributes to rapid healing and minimal downtime. This laser targets aging and damaged skin by creating thousands of deep microscopic treatment zones. The result is the appearance of a new layer of glowing, healthy skin.

Downtime Is Minimal

One of the remarkable benefits of Fraxel® laser resurfacing treatment is the minimal downtime of generally less than one week. However, for many patients, it’s not uncommon for you to return to your normal routine, including work and social activities, in just a few days after treatment.

Patients may experience some swelling that generally subsides within two to three days. It’s also common for some patients to experience redness, flaking, and peeling following Fraxel® laser treatment. Limiting sun exposure and thorough sun protection are a must at all times, but especially after Fraxel® laser resurfacing treatment.

Multiple Fraxel® DUAL Laser Treatment Sessions Are Required, But You Will Begin To See Results After Just One Treatment!

The number of laser treatments required can vary from patient to patient depending on the severity of the condition and the desired outcome. Clinical studies suggest that an effective Fraxel® laser treatment regime is four to six treatments, spaced approximately four to six weeks apart. Some require more or fewer to achieve optimal results.

Some benefits are seen immediately, while other Fraxel® laser treatment results are progressive. Shortly after each treatment, you will notice your skin feeling softer and smoother, more even-toned, and more luminescent. After three to six months, you’ll see even more results as the deeper layers of your skin create new collagen, giving you noticeably clearer, younger looking skin.

Ensure You’re the Right Candidate For Fraxel® Laser

Anyone who is experiencing these common skin issues may be a good candidate for Fraxel® laser treatment:

  • Uneven skin tone or pigmentation
  • Skin texture concerns
  • Acne scars
  • Surgical scars
  • Age spots / Sun spots
  • Fine lines and wrinkles

Patients should not receive Fraxel® DUAL laser treatment during pregnancy, or if they have certain skin disorders or problems such as active acne, excessive or sagging skin, or certain illnesses.

To ensure you’re getting the right treatment for you and your personal needs, schedule a consultation with one of our providers. They will determine if Fraxel® laser treatment is right for you and create a customized treatment plan to help you achieve optimal results.
