In the decade since Fraxel first pioneered true fractional laser technology, physicians around the world have treated more than 800,000 patients. That’s nearly a million treatments for women and men of all ethnicities, each with their own reasons for wanting to look and feel younger.
The technology behind fraxel treatment is as revolutionary as the results it can deliver. Unlike other laser treatments, fraxel treatment is able to precisely treat thousands of microscopic areas of skin, using pinpoint laser beams that penetrate beneath the skin surface to eliminate old, damaged skin cells. Fraxel treatment stimulates the body’s own natural healing process which replaces damaged skin with fresh, glowing, healthy skin.
Your skin is unique –your generic make-up, lifestyle and personal history all contribute to how your skin looks and feels. With fraxel treatment, your physician/technician can develop can develop a treatment plan tailored to your skin individual needs.
“By design fraxel treatments can target between 5 and 35 percent of the skin’s surface. Leaving the remaining 65 to 95 percent available to quickly heal the treated areas.”
Since fraxel treatment is so precise. It’s safe and effective on delicate skin areas like the neck, chest and hands, in addition to the face. You can expect two levels of results, immediate and progressive. Immediately after initial healing is complete, the surface of your skin will feel softer, look brighter and tone to start to become even. Progressive results occur over the next three to six months as the deeper layers of skin continue to heal.
Simply put, Fraxel treatment promotes your skin’s own healing process, resulting in natural rejuvenation that removes years from your appearance.
Depending on your skin, you can decide how you want to attain the remarkable results fraxel treatment delivers. Aggressive treatments require fewer sessions and results may include more post treatment redness and possible swelling –meaning a few days of social downtime. Less aggressive treatments accomplish the same results, with a few more treatment sessions and pronounced side effects. For some types of skin and skin conditions, gentle and/or fewer treatments are best. Fraxel treatment was specifically engineered to give your physician/technician complete treatment control based on your particular needs.
