Fraxel Treatment Q & A
What is Fraxel treatment?
Fraxel laser treatments treat thousands of microscopic spots of the skin using pinpoint laser beams that penetrate beneath the skin’s surface to eliminate old, damaged skin cells. Fraxel treatment also stimulates your body’s own natural healing processes, which replaces the old cells with fresh, healthy new cells and strengthening compounds, such as collagen.
Laser treatments for a smoother, rejuvenated complexion are nonsurgical, quick, and effective.
What can skin resurfacing with Fraxel treat?
The FDA approves Fraxel technology to address numerous skin complaints. These include:
- Wrinkles and fine lines, especially around your eyes and mouth
- Brown spots from aging or the sun
- Uneven tone and texture
- Acne and surgical scars
- Stretch marks
- Sun damage
These issues may have resulted from smoking, stress, aging, sun exposure, or air pollution. This versatile treatment reveals the more youthful skin tone and texture you’ve always wanted.
What should I expect during Fraxel treatments?
Prior to your Fraxel treatment, a technician cleans your skin and applies a numbing cream to make the procedure more comfortable.
During treatment, your provider passes a small handheld device over your skin. The laser light emitted from the laser encourages your body to naturally produce more collagen and rejuvenate cells. During this treatment, you may feel warmth and tingling.
The entire procedure takes 20-25 minutes. You may have mild side effects, such as temporary redness or swelling, that fade within a few days. Some people also experience flaking or peeling as old skin cells slough away.
How many treatments will I need?
To achieve the best results, the team at Laser Advantage of East County recommends 3-5 treatment sessions. Each of these are spaced about 4-8 weeks apart. Your skin needs time between sessions to heal and produce new collagen.
When will I notice the results of Fraxel treatments?
Optimal results are visible within 2-3 months. Your body needs this time to create the new cells and for the increased collagen to add visible strength and smoothness to your skin.
