RELIANT FRAXEL® LASER TREATMENT IS A BREAKTHROUGH AESTHETIC SOLUTION BASED ON A NEW SCIENCE OF "FRACTIONAL" SKIN REPAIR.
Fraxel Laser Treatment is a new category of anti-aging medicine that provides the positive results of new-generation skin resurfacing without the downtime and risks associated with traditional abrasive treatment methods.
FRAXEL® LASER TREATMENT REPAIRS AGING AND SUN-DAMAGED SKIN - PIXEL BY PIXEL, SPOT BY SPOT. Think of a digital photo that is comprised of thousands of pixels. Now, imagine damaged skin that is delicately repaired, pixel by pixel, spot by spot. That's the principle behind Fraxel Laser Treatment.
FRAXEL® LASER TREATMENT PROVIDES PHYSICIANS A GENTLE AND INTELLIGENT TREATMENT APPROACH TO FAST,REMARKABLE RESULTS WITH MINIMAL DOWNTIME AND MAXIMUM SAFETY.
Clinical studies suggest that on average, an effective treatment regimen is 3 to 5 sessions, spaced about 2 to 4 weeks apart. Depending upon your condition and schedule, you and your physician may choose to space treatment sessions even further apart. Results are immediate and progressive. Optimal improvement is usually visible in about 2 to 3 months. This time frame and treatment structure allows for complete healing and replacement of damaged tissue with new collagen and elastin, and viable healthy skin cell growth.
Most patients describe the treatment as having a "prickling" sensation. The topical anesthetic ointment and air cooling alleviates most discomfort.
During the first 24 hours after treatment, your skin may feel as though it is sunburned, and it will appear pink or red. Make-up can be worn to reduce the sunburned appearance. Your skin will naturally bronze over the next week or two. As you continue treatment, the sunburned to bronze conditions will repeat. Just like a natural sunburn, your skin will flake and exfoliate normally. Using a moisturizer will help reduce the appearance of dry flakes.
Wearing sunscreen of SPF 30 or higher twice a day is especially important. Avoid direct sun exposure during the healing process and for at least 3 months after treatment. Wearing wide brimmed hats is highly recommended when out in the elements. Protecting your skin from the sun is your biggest priority whether or not you have the Fraxel. The sun is not your skin's friend.
