What Is Fraxel Laser Treatment Good for?

The signs of aging aren’t something you have to grin and bear. You have more choices than ever for addressing the areas of your changing appearance that may cause you embarrassment, anxiety or just overall discouragement. When you’re ready to speak to a professional about your options, call the Juvanni Med Spa in Yonkers, NY and ask about Fraxel laser treatment.

During Fraxel laser resurfacing, a non-invasive and microscopic laser that uses two frequencies penetrates deep layers of your skin, triggering your body’s natural healing process. When your body heals itself, it produces more collagen—the protein responsible for the structure and strength of youthful skin. The treatment also bumps up elastin levels, which is what gives young skin a smooth and even texture.

The Fraxel laser targets only a fraction of the skin at a time, allowing for precise focusing of the laser to its intended target without risk of damaging nearby tissue. The combination of frequencies addresses concerns patients may have on the face, neck, chest, legs, and hands. Unlike harsher, more ablative treatments, there is no downtime necessary, but the results rival more invasive procedures.

There is no prep involved with this treatment: just a clean face. On the day of your session, your provider will apply a topical numbing agent to the surface of your skin to maximize your comfort. Integrated cooling during the treatment will also help keep you comfortable. Once your skin is numb, Fraxel laser treatment only takes between 15-20 minutes.

Afterward, you’ll just need to stay out of the sun and avoid strenuous exercise for a few days. Once you’ve completely healed, you’ll see results continue to improve as your collagen and elastin production increases. Patients see outstanding results and look younger naturally without dramatic or jarring changes. Benefits of Fraxel laser treatment include:

  1. Reduced appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  2. Even skin tone and texture
  3. Improved appearance of sun-damaged areas
  4. Diminished appearance of age spots and hyperpigmentation
  5. Reduced appearance of acne scarring

Patients will see a marked improvement in most signs of aging after just one treatment. Others will opt for more sessions to achieve maximum results. On average, patients get three to five treatments spaced two to four weeks apart. Results are immediate and progressive, reaching optimal levels around two to three months after treatment ends.

Any generally healthy adult who wants to address specific signs of aging or uneven pigmentation can be a good candidate for this treatment. Only your provider can determine if this is the treatment to address your specific concerns.

Now is the perfect time to take control of your aging process and love the reflection you see in the mirror.
