What Is Fraxel Skin Resurfacing?
Fraxel skin resurfacing is a treatment that is designed to improve the look of sun damage, fine wrinkles associated with aging, acne scarring, surgical scarring, and to improve skin texture and tone. It is done in a series of 3-5 treatments which are spaced 3-8 weeks apart.
How Does Fraxel Skin Resurfacing Work?
The Fraxel laser treatment creates tiny “microthermal zones” that go deep into the skin and repairs by pushing out the old sun-damaged, scarred or wrinkled skin. This action triggers the body’s own healing process and accelerates the production of collagen and new, healthy skin cells. If you think about what pixels look like in pictures or on your television/computer screens, you will have a general understanding of how these “microthermal zones” will look. People notice results within a week of the first treatment with a smoother look and a more healthy glow. Full results will be seen after the full series of treatments has been done which is in 5-6 months.
