What is Fraxel® Laser Skin Resurfacing?
Fraxel® laser skin rejuvenation uses FDA-approved advanced fractional laser technology to restore your skin to its former toned, even, youthful texture. The result is fresh, smooth, younger looking skin without surgery, scars or stitches.
What are the Benefits of Fraxel® Laser Skin Resurfacing?
- Improved skin tone and texture
- Smaller pores
- Erases brown spots, acne scars and surgical scars
- Reduces fine lines and wrinkles
- Relatively short treatment time
How Does Fraxel® Laser Skin Resurfacing Work?
The Fraxel® laser skin rejuvenation treatment is performed in our office by Dr. Baldenhofer and is used to treat the skin on the face, neck, chest and hands. The hand-held scanner allows focused targeting of specific problem areas and sends fractional lasers through the top layers of the skin.
This stimulates the body’s production of collagen and helps to resurface the top layer of the skin. With the increase of collagen, the body takes over with its own natural process for skin rejuvenation and continues to smooth out scars, wrinkles and fine lines.
Treatments typically take from 15-45 minutes, depending on the areas being treated. A topical numbing cream can be applied if necessary to minimize any discomfort. Best results are generally seen with 1-5 treatments.
Is Fraxel® Laser Skin Resurfacing Right for Me?
Fraxel® laser skin rejuvenation is safe for all skin types and colors, so if you’re a healthy adult who wants to restore and repair your skin, you’re likely a good candidate for Fraxel® treatment.
During your initial consultation, we’ll discuss all your options with you and help you determine if Fraxel® laser skin rejuvenation is the best choice for you, based on your medical history and unique aesthetic goals.
