Thought You’d Ruined Your Skin for Good? Meet the Modern Miracle that is Fraxel.

November 22, 2017

You’ve probably heard about laser hair removal, but lasers can be used in the dermatological world for many reasons. Fraxel® is a, FDA-approved laser repair treatment that is intended to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage, acne, skin pigmentation, stretch marks, and, in some cases, the pre-cancerous skin condition actinic keratosis (‘AK’). Fraxel’s proven fractional laser technology can help reverse the visible effects of aging, naturally helping you look younger, essentially slowing down the effects of aging.

Fraxel is a non-invasive procedure that works below the skin’s surface, addressing imperfections such as fine lines, visible photo aging, wrinkles, scarring and age spots. The highly innovative machine uses light energy that stimulates your skin’s natural collagen, rejuvenating skin cells below the surface. By creating “microthermal” zones deep into the skin, we can repair it by pushing out old, damaged skin and replace it with new, healthy skin. The small handheld device we use to pass over skin allows us to search for and target specific areas, meaning we can work harder on areas with more need.

Unbelievably, each Fraxel treatment replaces up to 15-20% of the sun damaged, scarred or wrinkled skin. Like Ultherapy, the treatment triggers the body’s natural healing process, meaning your body is naturally encouraged to collagen.

The entire procedure will take no longer than an hour and has been described as feeling like ‘pins and needles’. It is for this reason that our technicians first cleanse and apply a numbing cream to any treatment areas before we start.

There are hardly any side effects associated with Fraxel laser therapy, and virtually no down time. To find out more about Fraxel, or to schedule a consultation or Fraxel laser therapy appointment at TruDerm, call us at 561-847-4751.
