What You Need to Know About Fraxel Laser Treatment
You might be wondering how it is possible to reclaim your glowing, radiant skin. It’s quite simple: Fraxel is the brand name of a laser skin resurfacing device that works by making micro-injuries to your skin. This might sound scary, but you won’t notice these injuries at all. In fact, these injuries are what make the procedure effective. Think about when you get a tiny cut or scrape. After several days or weeks, your skin will heal and new skin will grow over the area where you were cut. Fraxel laser essentially works in the similar fashion. What makes Fraxel laser unique is that the laser beam gets broken up into fractions and ablates only about 40% of the skin surface. The other 60% of the untreated skin supports the healing process. This repairing process stimulates production of collagen and elastin, which will leave you with a flawless and smooth result. There is minimal downtime with decreased intensity of redness after Fraxel compared to other ablative and more invasive lasers.
Fraxel Laser Face Treatment
One interesting fact about this procedure is that any body part can be treated. However, it is typically used to treat the face, since most skin damage and imperfections tend to accumulate there. There are many different issues that you can target with Fraxel laser skin resurfacing, including acne scars, pigmentation, wrinkles, stretch marks, and large pores. You will want to consult with our specialist at Skinly Aesthetics and determine exactly what it is that you want to be done.
Frequently Asked Questions
Does it hurt to get laser skin resurfacing?
Before the procedure, we will apply a strong numbing cream to decrease discomfort. Additionally some patients benefit from inhaling nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas. Most patients report prickle-like sensation during the treatment.
What should I do to prepare?
Sun tanning, self-tanning, retinoic acid, Accutane or antibiotics such as doxycycline must be avoided and/or discontinued for at least 14 days prior to procedure. Also, you will want to make sure that you don’t have any active skin infection, breakouts, or wounds.
When will I see results?
This is going to largely depend on the skin condition that will be treated. There are patients who may only need one treatment to get the results related to sun spots and enlarged pores. But for deeper wrinkles and scars it may take more than one session. Regardless, your skin will look refreshed and smoother after just one treatment. It generally takes three weeks for your skin to heal between each session, so this is approximately when you will come in for your next session.
How long will the results last?
This largely depends on the color of your complexion, because people with lighter complexions tend to notice discoloration faster than those with darker complexions. Overall, people tend to notice that their results will last for approximately 1 year.
How long does the procedure take?
The numbing cream is applied for approximately 25 minutes and the procedure itself takes anywhere between 20 to 30 minutes.
How much does Fraxel Laser cost?
The cost of laser skin resurfacing will depend on the area, the condition of your skin, and several other factors. The investment you will be making is worth every penny for a flawless and rejuvenated skin. At Skinly Aesthetics we will provide you with the most competitive prices in New York while giving you the best service possible.
Fraxel Laser recovery time
It usually takes between 3 and 5 days for your skin to recover from the procedure.
What is the aftercare like?
You will usually need to have between 3 to 5 days of downtime, but it depends on the intensity of the treatment. It is imperative to use plenty of sunscreen, gentle cleanser and a thick moisturizer. Don’t use any of your harsher acne treatments and do not pick at your skin. You must also avoid sun exposure. You will receive custom after care instructions after your treatment is complete.
What are the side effects of Fraxel Laser treatment NYC?
Your skin will look red and flaky. You may notice that it looks worse before it gets better because your skin is repairing itself. You may also feel a bit itchy and sore in the area that has been treated for a few days afterward. However, the side effects are very minimal, especially when compared to other intense laser procedures.
Fraxel Laser Before and After
Fraxel laser results might not be immediate, but after a few sessions, your skin will produce enough collagen to completely change the outer layer of your skin. You will have a smoother texture, little to no fine lines and wrinkles, virtually non-existent pores, and your skin will feel much tighter and youthful. A bonus is that this laser technology prevents your skin from producing more pigment.
