Fraxel laser skin resurfacing is a true breakthrough in laser technology; it is the original company that created Fractional Laser technology where laser energy is divided into an almost microscopic pixel pattern on the skin.
Fraxel Laser Treatment is designed to target aging and damaged skin by creating microscopic "wounds" within the targeted areas well beneath the skin's outermost layer. In this way, Fraxel® Laser treatments trigger the body's own natural production of new collagen and skin cells. And because Fraxel® Laser Treatment combines the impact of ablative lasers with the gentleness of non-ablative lasers, healing occurs so quickly that there is very little downtime for patients *usually a day or two). This laser treatment needs to be repeated 3 to 6 times depending upon the degree of skin damage, but it allows you to continue life without the longer downtime of Fractional CO2 lasers.
Special Microneedling technique breaks down the hard scar tissue restructuring deeper dermis layer of the skin. On the other hand Fraxel laser treatment is smoothing out the epidermal to outer dermal surface of the skin. That combination works the best for acne scars, surgical and trauma scars and stretch marks.
Multiple treatments are usually required and the will be spaced 6-8 weeks apart.
Additional at home application of medical grade vitamin C serums helps to build the necessary collagen in the skin.
Dermapen Microneedling is a medical device that is used to break down old scar tissue and to stimulate skin cells to proliferate. This cell multiplication results in the formation of new tissue layers of elastin and collagen fibers as well as in new capillaries for an improved blood supply.
