What is Fraxel Therapy?

Fraxel Therapy is a laser skin rejuvenation procedure aimed at controlled treatment of many areas of the face and body, and restoration of the skin after skin damage. It is a fast, non-surgical, no downtime method. The Fraxel laser reaches deep into the skin’s second layer, the dermis, and helps stimulating the body’s restorative abilities and the new collagen creation. Older skin that is damaged is removed from beneath the epidermal layer, the outermost area of skin. The procedure is unique because it only targets a specific part of your skin, reducing the risk of skin damage to your healthy skin.

The FDA has permitted the use of Fraxel Therapy in the USA for specific skin conditions. There are three types of Fraxel lasers: Fraxel re:fine, Fraxel re:store, and Fraxel re:pair.

Who is a candidate for Fraxel Therapy?

Fraxel Therapy candidates include men and women of all ages how want to eliminate age spots, actinic keratoses, irregular texture of the skin, surgical scars, sun damage, acne scars, skin pigmentation, wrinkles near the eyes, and even melasma, or the “mask of pregnancy”. The patients have a positive outlook and realistic expectations about the procedure. The Fraxel Therapy is better suited for patients who have a fair, olive, or tan skin.

The Fraxel Treatment

D-r. Kevin Tehrani will begin the Fraxel Therapy by cleansing the skin and applying a topical cream to numb the treatment area one hour prior to procedure. This is done to keep you comfortable during the therapy. Then, he will use the laser to help the skin rejuvenate in the associated treatment area. The epidermis and dermis skin layers are treated, but no visible damage is done to the epidermal layer of the skin. Fraxel Therapy threats only selected areas of the skin, leaving healthy and unaffected skin intact to support the healing process and stimulate the body’s healing capacity. This results in the production of new collagen and even more radiant skin. Treatments usually last about thirty minutes.

Benefits of Fraxel

Fraxel Therapy provides many benefits for men and women of all ages. The main benefits is the shorter recovery time and fewer side effects. It is one of the least invasive laser skin rejuvenation procedures as most patients can go back to work shortly after treatment, or the next day, and can wear makeup immediately after their session.
