Fraxel is a skin treatment that uses laser technology and can reduce fine lines, wrinkles, age spots or other scars. You may opt for different types of fraxel treatments (i.e. fraxel restore or repair) depending on the complexity of your condition. There are many reasons to choose a fraxel treatment.
1. Reduces Wrinkles
Wrinkles are inevitable at a certain age and they may occur also due to overexposure to sun. Depending how deep the wrinkles are, fraxel treatments may be used to diminish the appearance of wrinkles. Fraxel repair can be used if you have fine lines, while fraxel restore will take care of deeper wrinkles.
Certain fraxel techniques require 3 to 6 appointments, but results will be visible from the first appointment.
2. Tightens Skin
The fraxel treatments employ microscopic laser columns, which will infiltrate into the skin and will stimulate the production of collagen, which helps maintain tight skin.
3. Eliminates Sun Spots
If you use a lot of make up to hide your sun or age spots, you should find a way to eliminate these through a cosmetic treatment. Fraxel repair is the treatment recommended for you. You’ll have clearer, younger looking skin.
4. Reduces Scars
If you have some scars, a fraxel restore treatment is recommended to reduce the visibility of the scars. The laser will work both on the surface levels and the deeper skin levels, remodeling the skin and making the scars less visible.
5. Eliminates Melasmas
Melasmas or the pregnancy mask can occur in women due to hormones, and these spots may persist after giving birth also. A fraxel treatment can eliminate these brown spots and will also work on getting an even skin pigmentation.
6. No Scarring
Being non invasive procedures, the fraxel treatments will leave you with no scars; it is important to choose an experienced cosmetic surgeon that has state of the art equipment to ensure that the results are the best possible and there are no scars.
7. Fast Recovery Time
The recovery time after a fraxel treatment will be minimal. The recovery time will vary according to the type of treatment and how your skin responds.
8. Long Lasting Effect
If you get a fraxel treatment, you will have tighter and younger looking skin for a longer period of time. A fraxel treatment will prevent the skin from getting loose by stimulating the production of collagen. This will prevent the need for a face lift in the near future.
Compared to a face lift and other traditional cosmetic surgeries that reduce wrinkles and erase sun and age spots or correct scars, the fraxel treatments are less expensive.
10. FDA Approved
The fraxel treatments have received FDA approval. Don’t risk it by choosing treatments that have not been FDA approved.
Consult a cosmetic surgeon and go over your treatment options; the surgeon may recommend you a certain type of fraxel treatment, but depending on your condition may also recommend other types of treatment that may be more suitable.
