Fraxel® Fractionated Laser
Laser treatment can perform wonders for aging or damaged skin. However, despite the powerful effects of laser technology in skin care, there always seemed to be a choice: between gentle laser treatments that were less effective but easy on the skin, or intense ablative lasers that were powerful but painful.
Today, there is a true breakthrough in facial laser technology that provides incredible results for the skin: Fraxel® Laser Treatment. Developed by the original inventors of Fractional Laser skin treatments, a technology that divides laser energy into a tiny pixel pattern on the skin, Fraxel® Laser Treatment produces the complexion effects of a powerful laser with the client experience of a much less intense treatment. Fractionated laser treatment provides an advanced and highly effective laser skin care treatment that revitalizes and refreshes damaged skin and aging skin.
What makes Fraxel® Laser Treatment different?
Before fractionated laser treatments, there were two options for laser skin care for cosmetic improvement, ablative and non-ablative treatments. Ablative laser treatments are highly effective and destroy unwanted tissue; however, they require a lengthy healing period. Non-ablative treatment, on the other hand, is almost free of side effects and requires no healing period. However, the result of the non-ablative treatment is reduced and requires multiple treatments to achieve desired results.
Fraxel Laser Resurfacing combines the best of both worlds. This treatment combines the powerful cosmetic improvements of ablative lasers with the gentleness of non-ablative lasers; you’ll heal quickly, with very little downtime. Indeed, Fraxel Laser treats only 20-25% of your skin in one session, which leaves the remaining skin healthy to help you heal. The results of these treatments are long-lasting and require minimal maintenance.
The treatment is performed in a series of four or five sessions, two to six weeks apart. The specific schedule will be determined based on your personal skin type and needs. The benefits and skin improvement will continue after the final treatment, and you will only need to follow up every two to three years to maintain the excellent cosmetic improvements produced by this FDA-approved treatment.
