Fraxel Laser Treatment Q & A
What is Fraxel Laser Treatment?
Fraxel laser treatment is an advanced technology used to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and imperfections. In addition it is effective in treating acne scars and surgical scars
Fraxel is an innovative way to address the most severe signs of skin damage with low risk. With the fractional technology, the treatment also delivers significant results with a much faster recovery period than previous laser technology. Most Fraxel patients report the feeling of a "light sunburn" immediately following the treatment However, treatment can vary so it will be important to discuss the treatment with the physician.
How Long Does the Procedure Take?
Fraxel treatments typically last between 15 and 45 minutes.
When Will I See Results?
Most patients observe the best results with 1 to 5 Fraxel laser treatments. Fraxel delivers results in approximately 1 to 3 weeks.
How is Fraxel Treatment Different?
Normally, ablative treatments utilize very high temperatures to vaporize undesired, damaged tissue and it can be effective. However, significant side effects usually accompany the results and several weeks of recovery time are necessary. Non-ablative treatments usually have very few side effects and a shorter recovery period, but they typically require multiple treatments in order to deliver more modest results. Fraxel laser treatment has the dramatic results of an ablative treatment with the minimal side effects of non-ablative lasers. Patients can get the best of both worlds using this revolutionary cosmetic treatment.
