How does Fraxel Laser work?

Fraxel Laser is the process of using lasers to treat areas of the skin. It is useful in that it only targets the areas you want to treat and does not have an effect on the surrounding area. This makes the treatment more precise as well as reducing how long it takes to recover. The treatment itself fires lasers and produces microthermal zones in the skin, which are small columns that help to rejuvenate the cells in the tisssue. It not only directly treats the skin it also causes the body to begin to produce new collagen, which itself will improve the skin in the long run. The results will include skin that has effectively been ironed out, reducing things like lines.

What areas can be treated?

There are various parts of the skin that can be treated. These will include the neck, hands and chest areas, where the skin is more suited to the treatment, though this is something you will discuss with a professional. As a result, the treatment will provide care for age spots, wrinkles, sun spots, acne and stretch marks.

How is the treatment performed?

First of all the skin will be cleansed to prepare it for the procedure before an anaesthetic is used to provide as much comfort as possible during the use of the lasers. Once a certain amount of time has passed the procedure can finally take place and can take anywhere from 20 minutes to half an hour depending on how large the area is that is being cared for. All in all it will take a couple of hours. No pain will be involved, though some sensations have been reported

Are there any risks or side effects?

There are always some small risks associated with any procedure of this kind. These will often involve swelling or infections as well as other ailments that might affect the skin. Some of these could fade over time (though you should keep your doctor informed if they do not). In all cases the skin will be slightly red immediately after the procedure, but this is normal. It will be followed by a ‘bronzing’ period as the skin repairs itself
