Fraxel Lasers are designed to improve your overall skin quality by jump-starting your body's natural processes of skin growth and rejuvenation.
Offering three separate and distinct types of treatment, Fraxel can help reduce the appearance of everything from very light to very heavy and severe facial lines, wrinkles, and scars.
Am I a Candidate for Fraxel Laser Treatment?
Fraxel Laser treatments are intended to give you younger, healthier-looking skin by stimulating and promoting new skin growth. Any generally healthy individual wanting to reduce the appearance of facial lines or other forms of skin damage makes a strong candidate for this type of treatment.
In particular, Fraxel Lasers are designed to reduce the appearance of the following unwanted facial features:
- Lines, creases, and folds
- Acne scarring
- Sun damage
- Surgical scars
It is important to work closely with Dr. Benien to determine which form of Fraxel Co2 Laser treatment is right for you.
How Fraxel Laser Treatments Work
Beneath the surface of your skin is a network of proteins called collagen and elastin. These proteins help your body produce and maintain healthy skin. Both collagen and elastin break down with age and exposure to the sun, and as they do, the skin becomes rough, wrinkled, and damaged. Fraxel Laser treatments are effective because they penetrate beneath the skin's surface to trigger an increased production of collagen and elastin, and stimulate your body's natural processes of healthy skin growth.
After meeting with Dr. Benien to identify target areas of the face, your Fraxel Laser treatment will be administered on an outpatient basis. Your skin will be cleaned and an anesthetic ointment will be applied to your face to reduce pain or discomfort. The actual treatment only takes 20 to 25 minutes, and during this time, Dr. Benien uses the highly specialized Fraxel Laser to pinpoint and treat only the damaged areas of your skin.
What Happens After Fraxel Laser Treatment?
The side effects following a Fraxel Laser treatment depend on the specific type of treatment you receive. For more mild treatments, expect some degree of swelling, soreness, and redness similar to a slight sunburn. You should be able to return to full activity within an hour or so following mild treatment. After receiving a more aggressive treatment, it may take a few days for your skin to recover enough to return to full activity.
