What’s involved in FRAXEL® treatments?
For this facial treatment, a topical anaesthetic would be applied and the procedure would performed in the doctor’s office which takes about 60 minutes to complete. FRAXEL® Laser Treatment can be safe and speedy and can be well tolerated by the skin. A typical treatment plan can call for 4-6 sessions, spaced 2-6 weeks apart.
The skin can be resurfaced by treating only a very small fraction of skin at a time, without breaking the skin’s protective outer barrier. Unlike some other lasers, this process does not remove the entire top layer of damaged skin, so a lengthy recovery period is not necessarily required.
There may not be any pain or discomfort associated with FRAXEL® Laser Treatments. Most people could compare it to having mild sunburn: Your face would be flushed and you may experience a slight swelling. Both can diminish in the following two days. Your treatment area may appear bronzed or tanned for up to two weeks after treatment and your skin may begin to flake off just like sunburn, which can be a sign of healing and repairing.
Recent articles have suggested that by combining the THERMAGE® and FRAXEL® procedures, one could obtain superior tightening, texture, tone and skin rejuvenation results. Fortunately, both these treatments can be performed at Precision Aesthetics as we have the technology to actively combine these two modalities in what may be a cost effective, clinically proven manner.
