Published on 15 April, 2017Fraxel fractionated laser resurfacing addresses 7 key facets of facial ageingFraxel laser’s non ablative resurfacing was one of the first on the market, and over the decades has refined its technology, continuing to be a leader in the laser laser skin treatments field.Modern day Fraxel is comfortable, quick and gets maximum results with minimal downtime. After the treatment, our patients begin to notice the following improvements in their skin; these changes continue in the weeks and months following their treatment, to achieve their final result:Reduction of precancerous sun damage (actinic keratosis) that can lead to sun cancerPigmentation and sun spots are eliminatedFine lines and wrinkles are reducedSkin texture and condition is improvedFacial, neck and chest/décolletage skin feels tighterPore size is reducedScars and stretch marks are reduced Treatment intensity and depth is tailored to each individual patientOne of the best aspects of Fraxel is its ‘dual’ function; which gives it the ability to be varied in intensity, allowing us to modify the therapy depending upon whether the patient’s skin is quite healthy, or requires extensive resurfacing – and how long they want their downtime to last. A low intensity treatment helps to remove superficial sun spots and pigmentation, with only a weekend of coffee-grain like shedding. While a more intensive treatment will lift extensive sun damage and address deeper lines, and will involve shedding for about 5 days. Your Fraxel treatment will begin with a thorough skin analysis with our dermal clinicians, who will assess your skin, discuss your desired result and advise of the best intensity to achieve this for you. The treatment doesn’t require a post-treatment product list as long as your armMany laser, pulsed light and peel therapies necessitate a lengthy regime of costly skin care products before and after the treatment. Our Fraxel treatment does not require this. To maintain your results, your clinician may recommend a very simple ongoing skin care plan, which can include important anti ageing active ingredients such as alpha hydroxy acids (AHA’s), retinoids (vitamin A) and beta glucan – as well as an effective SPF 50 sunscreen.
