The aging process and environmental factors can cause numerous changes in skin for both men and women. Fortunately, the Fraxel Re:pair Laser corrects numerous issues, leaving you with refreshed skin that looks and feels more youthful.
The Fraxel Re:pair Laser is a fractional CO2 laser, which uses microscopically pixelated laser beams to strategically treat your skin. The laser is noted for its strength and depth of penetration into skin. The laser will penetrate deeply into skin, removing damaged skin cells, and stimulating the body’s natural healing process to help new skin cells grow along with collagen. Collagen, which helps keep your skin firmer, look stronger, and more refreshed & rejuvenated.
Best of all, it takes is just one treatment for your skin to start to feel smoother, healthier, and tighter. The Fraxel Re:pair Laser is great for treating:
- Acne scarring
- Brown spots, caused by overexposure to the sun
- Wrinkles of the face (especially around the eyes, mouth,and cheeks)
- Crepey neck skin
- Skin redness
- Skin texture irregularities
- Sun damage
Fraxel treatments will usually take about an hour to complete. Following your laser treatment, your skin will look and feel much smoother. As new layers of collagen begin to form over the next few months, you will continue to see improvements in your skin and feel it becoming firmer!
Following treatment, a patient may experience redness or skin swelling, lasting several days. Most patients are able to return to all their normal activities approximately one week after Fraxel laser treatment. Patients should use only gentle, non-irritating cleansers and lotions in the days after treatment.
The precise method of Fraxel used will depend on the patient’s specific needs. For example, patients who have only mildly sun damaged skin with only a few wrinkles may benefit from a more gentle Fraxel treatment. Patients who wish to treat deeper wrinkles or severely sun damaged or acne scarred skin may benefit from a more intense laser session, which penetrates skin deeper.
