Each treatment can be completed in the comfort of our office, and the side effects are usually quite minimal.
The Basics of Laser Skin Treatments
Over the last few decades, doctors have discovered that they can encourage the body to create new skin cells by “tricking” it with laser energy. The Fraxel® laser heats up the outer layers of a patient’s skin so that the body creates fresh skin cells. This procedure also stimulates the production of key proteins that keep your skin toned and firm. Surgical procedures like lifts and tucks can be highly effective as well, but they often require a lengthy recovery.
Treating Cosmetic Blemishes
One of the reasons why the Fraxel® laser is so popular is because it can be used to treat a myriad of blemishes. Fraxel® can minimize the appearance of almost any surface damage on the skin. That includes old scars, discoloration, wrinkles, and sunspots. This procedure can also be carried out almost anywhere on the body. It is an ideal option for blemishes in sensitive areas like the face, neck, and chest. If you constantly feel the need to hide your imperfections with loose clothing or makeup, then you might be the perfect candidate for Fraxel® laser treatments.
In the weeks following your treatment, the surface of your skin will gradually begin to improve as the damaged cells are replaced with healthy cells. The results can usually be maintained with follow-up treatments as needed.
