Fraxel is a kind of laser treatment therapy for your skin. It is commonly used to treat the signs of aging, such as wrinkles, sun spots, freckles, and other surface blemishes. However, the safe and non-invasive approach that Fraxel technology uses also makes it ideal as a treatment for skin problems associated with adolescence.
Fraxel and Adolescents
Although Fraxel is most commonly used to restore the skin's youthful appearance, it can have benefits for adolescents as well. It is an invaluable non-invasive option for anyone suffering from acne scars. Adolescents obviously don't have wrinkles to be treated, but they can strongly benefit from the reduction of acne scars, as many adolescents either suffer from, or previously suffered from, acne.
This treatment option is safe for use by any age group, skin color, or gender. If you are not sure if Fraxel is the right skin repair regimen for your needs, be sure to consult with a dermatologist.
How It Works
Fraxel lasers go beneath the dermis, creating microscopic wounds under the surface of your skin. These wounds stimulate the body's natural healing process, which in turn expedites the production of collagen and elastin in the skin. This results in tighter, more youthful-looking skin. The treatment is so precise that only a tiny area of skin needs to be treated in order to create a dramatic impact. In the case of adolescents, the area of their skin that suffered from acne can solely be treated.
