For results you can see and feel, Fraxel is a wonderful FDA-approved option for patients who want smoother, fresher, and younger looking skin. Using pinpoint laser beams that penetrate the skin’s surface, Fraxel eliminates old and damaged skin cells. This treatment stimulates the body’s own natural healing process to replace aged and damaged skin with fresh, glowing, healthy skin.
With Fraxel, you will see improved skin tone and texture, reduced wrinkles, improved appearance of acne and surgical scars, reduced age and sun spots, and much smoother skin.
Everyone’s skin is different, but clinical studies suggest that for most patients, maximum results are seen in just three to five sessions. These are usually spaced two to six weeks apart.
Before treatment, we will apply topical anesthesia to minimize discomfort. In addition, cold air is used on the treatment area during the procedure. Most patients report that the sensation after the treatment feels similar to having a slight sunburn. This usually disappears after one to three hours.
Since results will vary based on the intensity and duration of the treatment, Eileen consults with each patient prior to Fraxel treatments to customize the treatment to achieve the desired results.
