Fraxel laser procedure is an innovative cosmetic procedure option that treats damaged skin by penetrating tiny portions of your skin, not damaging any of the surrounding tissue, which results in stimulating collagen and a more rapid healing process. Fraxel price can vary depending on where you live, the area of your body to be treated and the number of treatments required.
Fraxel price is determined by the extensiveness of the procedure and the number of treatments required. An average price for Fraxel laser treatment is $1000 per treatment. But you can normally get a special or reduced price if you get a package that includes 4-5 treatments that run anywhere from $2000-$4000.
Fraxel laser can be used for treating the following:
- Reducing age spots
- Brown spots
- Sun spots
- Acne scars
- Stretch marks
Results from Fraxel laser treatment are immediate and progressively, even after just one treatment. After several treatments, your skin becomes softer, smoother, leaving you with rejuvenated, younger looking skin.
Fraxel laser treatment is done right in your cosmetic dermatologist?s office and is done as an outpatient. You will need to go to your appointment an hour early so that a topical anesthetic can be applied to the treated area, the actual Fraxel laser treatment only takes 15 to 30 minutes to perform.
Your cosmetic dermatologist will use a hand held laser device and gently guide it over the targeted area, letting the laser energy penetrate into the specific areas of the dermis. You may experience a heated, prickling sensation, but you are given a hand held cooling devise that you can use that will quickly alleviate any discomfort.
Your skin may look bronzed or tanned for a few days following treatment. You may experience minor swelling and redness, but this is typically gone after three days. You can return to regular activities immediately following treatment and you can also apply makeup after the procedure.
You may need more than one treatment in order to get the desired results that you are seeking. Depending on the damage and the results that you want, up to 7 treatments may be necessary. An average of 3-5 treatments are recommended.
