Fraxel Laser Therapy is a laser skin rejuvenation procedure aimed at controlled treatment of many areas of the face and body. It is a fast, non-surgical, no downtime method that repairs damaged skin and can treat a number of issues from hyperpigmentation to scars to wrinkles to sun damage.
Is Fraxel Laser Right For You?
The Fraxel laser reaches deep into the skin’s second layer, the dermis, and stimulates the body’s restorative abilities, as well as its production of new collagen. 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.
Fraxel Laser Therapy candidates include men and women of all ages who want to reduce 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.” Fraxel is better suited for patients who have fair, olive, or tan skin.
Dr. Tehrani will begin the treatment by cleansing your skin and applying a topical cream to numb the treatment area one hour prior to the procedure. The laser is passed over the treatment area, but no visible damage is done to the epidermal layer of the skin.
Fraxel Therapy treats only selected areas of the skin, leaving healthy and unaffected skin intact. This supports the healing process and stimulates your body’s healing capacity. Treatments usually last about 30 minutes.
