FAQ's

The technology behind Fraxel treatment is as revolutionary as the results it can deliver. Unlike other laser treatments, Fraxel treatment is able to precisely treat thousands of microscopic areas of skin, using pinpoint laser beams that penetrate beneath the skin’s surface to eliminate old, damaged skin cells, as well as some of the pigmented cells. Fraxel treatment stimulates the body’s own natural healing process which replaces damaged skin with fresh, glowing, healthy skin.

By design, Fraxel Treatments can target between approximately 5 to 50 percent of the treated skin’s surface, leaving the remaining 50 to 95 percent available to quickly heal the treated areas. Since Fraxel treatment is so precise, it is safe and effective on delicate skin areas like the neck, chest and hands, in addition to the face. The results of Fraxel Treatment are two fold; immediate and progressive. Immediately after initial healing is complete, the surface of your skin will feel softer, look brighter and tone will start to become even. Progressive results occur over the next three to six months as the deeper layers of skin continue to heal.

You will have some degree of redness and swelling. The intensity and duration depends on how aggressive the treatment was and your particular healing characteristics. Other temporary side-effects may include minor itching, dry skin, peeling or flaking, and a bronzed skin appearance. You will be given specific instructions about what to expect for your particular treatment and how to minimize the side-effects.

Topical anesthesia is applied before the procedure and cold air is used on the treatment area during the procedure to minimize discomfort. After the treatment, most patients report a feeling similar to having too much sun.  It usually disappears after 1 to 3 hours.
