Fraxel® – Fractional Laser Skin Treatments
Your skin is buffeted by the elements and not just when you go outside. Even at home, there are free radicals and other agents in the air which can affect the quality of your skin.
Always exposed, the skin on your face takes an environmental beating, from the sun, wind, cold and pollution. Wouldn’t it be amazing if you could repair the appearance of your skin? Fraxel® has been developed to do precisely that.
Fractional laser skin resurfacing is quite new. It works by delivering light via precision microbeams. These penetrate beneath the skin’s surface, addressing the dermis. By stimulating collagen production using this method, your skin repairs itself.
Using the Palomar Icon 1540, fractionated light makes Fraxel® safe. The treatment consistently produces exceptional results.
Skin Resurfacing Without the Recovery Time
Because the Icon 1540 is non-ablative, there’s very little recovery time involved with Fraxel® laser treatment. While some minor swelling and redness should be expected following treatment, these side effects usually endure for only a day or two.
Over 3-5 sessions, spaced 4-6 weeks apart, your skin’s texture and elasticity are renewed with Fraxel®. Because the laser used is much gentler, you get all the results without the downtime associated with ablative skin resurfacing therapies.
The lasers used are fractionated, microcolumns of light. Instead of treating skin with one, full-spectrum beam, the microcolumns used in fractionated laser treatments leave parts of the skin untreated, avoiding some of the less pleasant side effects of full spectrum methodologies.
Not Just for Wrinkles
The applications of Fraxel® go well beyond betting rid of the signs of environmental damage and aging. Acne scarring responds well to the treatment, for example. In fact, laser therapy is widely acknowledged to be the best way to address acne scars.
Surgical scars or scars from accidents are also well-adapted to treatment with Fraxel®. Scars from serious burns may also be treated with this therapy, as well as stretch marks obtained during pregnancy or juvenile growth spurts.
Areas of skin discoloration caused by melasma respond well to Fraxel®. Sun damage, pregnancy and hormones can all cause this condition and Fraxel® is highly effective for treating it.
Finally, Fraxel® is the ideal treatment for those who wish to turn back the hands of time. Addressing lax skin tone, sun damage and fine lines and wrinkle, this exceptional therapeutic tool leaves guests with skin that’s taut, smooth and refreshed.
The Icon 1540 laser delivers heat to the dermis as part of its therapeutic action. This provokes the production of vital skin components like collagen and elastin, which are stimulated to rebuild your skin’s texture, tautness and quality.
The volumizing effect which results reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, giving you the vibrant skin you’ve always dreamed of having.
