Fractal Skin Resurfacing

What is Fraxel skin resurfacing?

Fraxel skin resurfacing is a laser treatment that splits the laser into many microbeams and treats portions of your skin, which in turn prompts the rest of your skin to respond to treating the numerous tiny injuries, stimulating it to rapidly produce new and healthy skin cells. It effectively tricks your skin into rejuvenating itself, making you look years younger without enduring invasive procedures, side effects or prolonged downtime.

What can I expect from Fraxel skin resurfacing treatments?

  • Non-invasive treatment without extended recovery time
  • A return to smoother, fresher, youthful skin
  • Smaller pores with improved tone and texture
  • Improvement in the look of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Reduction in hyperpigmentation, irregular coloration and age spots
  • Improvement in the look of acne, surgical or accidental scars
  • Results are immediate but also increase with time

What should I expect during and after treatment?

Fraxel resurfacing is noninvasive, and a topical numbing cream will be used beforehand for your comfort. Many patients describe feeling as though they have a mild to moderate sunburn after treatment, but only for a few hours. Every patient has different skin and may or may not experience dry skin with peeling or flaking, redness or swelling. After care instructions include using ice and moisturizing with very gentle, non comedogenic products. Sunscreen is an absolute must if you can’t avoid exposure completely, and you will need to avoid any scrubs, exfoliators or products with glycolic acid or Retin-A. You may resume your regular skin care routine after a week.

How many Fraxel treatments will I need?

The number of treatments differs depending on your age, habits, skin type and conditions you want treated. Immediately after treatment your skin will feel smoother, softer, have a more even tone and look brighter, but that isn’t the end. Fraxel resurfacing also produces ongoing results as deeper layers of skin continue the healing process, so you will continue to see improvements for three to six months following a treatment. You will have a consultation to determine the best course of treatment for your needs; most people see maximum results after three to five sessions, spaced anywhere from two to six weeks apart.
