Fraxel laser treatment is a non-invasive procedure that creates a series of micro-injuries in your skin to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin. Fraxel creates tiny, controlled columns of damage in the skin rather than removing the entire surface, leading to minimal downtime – without sacrificing results. Fraxel laser treatment can effectively treat many of the common signs of aging, including:
Fraxel laser treatment restores a fresh, youthful look to your skin with minimal discomfort and limited downtime. Some of the key benefits you can expect with Fraxel laser treatment include:
When you arrive for your Fraxel laser treatment, a clear topical numbing gel will be applied to enhance the effectiveness of the laser while minimizing any discomfort. Once the anesthetic is activated (about 45 minutes later), we will begin the laser treatment, which takes an average of 15 to 30 minutes to complete, depending on the areas we are treating and the state of your skin. After the treatment, your facial skin will appear sunburned, which fades away over the next few days. Because Fraxel laser treatment works by triggering natural skin regeneration, your skin will continue to improve in the months ahead, with results that last for years.
If you are looking to overcome the visible signs of aging or want to improve skin quality and regain the glow of healthy skin, you are a likely candidate for our Fraxel laser treatment. Because this treatment is a medical procedure, it will require an in-person consultation with Dr. Reinblatt. Fraxel may not be right for if you are experiencing an acne breakout, if you have a medical condition that makes the procedure unsafe for you, or if you are pregnant. If Fraxel isn’t right for you, Dr. Reinblatt will work with you to develop a customized plan of treatments that will be safe and effective, as well as help you plan for the future.
After the treatment, your skin will appear red and feel warm. Ice packs can be applied for 20 minutes at a time to soothe the sensation. Keep your head elevated to avoid excessive swelling. Stay hydrated by drinking lots of water, not coffee, soda, or caffeinated beverages. Your skin may start to itch (a sign of healing), and you can apply a special moisturizer to stay comfortable. Stay out of the sun! Your skin will begin to peel with the top layer flaking away – make sure you do not pick at your skin, leave it alone and let it head. You can return to your usual skincare routine in about one week.
