Fraxel Laser Treatment is a “fractional” treatment that intensively treats old epidermal pigment cells without affecting any of the surrounding tissue, which reduces healing time and promotes the skin’s natural process for creating new, healthier tissue to replace the damaged cells. Fraxel is designed to target aging and sun-damaged skin by targeting portions of specific damaged tissue well beneath the outer most epidermal layer of skin. Fraxel Laser treatments trigger the body’s natural healing process accelerating the production of collagen and new, healthy skin cells. During the first 24 hours after treatment, your skin may feel as though it is sunburned, and it will appear pink or red. Make-up can be worn to reduce the sunburned appearance. Your skin will naturally bronze over the next week or two. As you continue treatment, the sunburned to bronze conditions will repeat. Just like a natural sunburn, your skin will flake and exfoliate normally.
