FRAXEL®

Restoring your youthfulness…

Fraxel® resurfacing treatments effectively target both the surface and deeper layers of the skin for a smother, fresher, younger looking appearance.

The Fraxel® laser treatment is a newer approach, using fractional photothermolysis, providing many of the benefits of invasive skin resurfacing performed with traditional devices, but with fewer side-effects and less recovery time.

The benefits of Fraxel®

  • Improved tone and texture
  • Reduces wrinkles around the eyes
  • Lightening hormonal pigmentation and unwanted brown spots
  • Improved appearance of acne scars and surgical scars

· Excellent rejuvenation and anti-ageing treatment for face, neck, chest, arms, legs, and back

How does it work?

Fraxel® treatment uses patented fractional technology to target damaged skin with microscopic laser columns that penetrate deep into the skin. The laser treats only a fraction of tissue at a time, leaving the surrounding tissue untouched, which promotes rapid healing. This stimulates our body’s own natural healing process, replacing the old and damaged cells with fresh, glowing healthy skin.

When do the results appear, and how long do they last?

The results are both immediate and progressive. A week after the treatment, the surface of your skin will feel softer and smoother, look brighter and show a more even tone. The next 3 to 6 months will bring more improvement as the deeper layers of the skin continue to create new collagen. Results are long lasting depending on your lifestyle, age, skin condition and skin care regimen.

How many treatments will I need?

Desired outcomes are typically reached in multiple treatments. The specific number of treatments is tailored to your goals and desired results as well as your lifestyle. We will work with you to identify the appropriate level of treatment and your preferred downtime.

What should I expect after treatment?

Depending on the level of the treatment, you may experience redness or swelling and heat after the procedure, almost like a sunburn, which diminishes as quickly as the next day. Your skin will have a slight roughness to the touch which exfoliate naturally, revealing freasher, lowing and smoother looking and feeling skin.
