Fraxel® Laser Skin Resurfacing
Do you have etched-in wrinkles that do not go away even after BOTOX® Cosmetic or other cosmetic procedures? Wish you could have a smoother and more even skin tone without excessive downtime?
At Radiance Medical Spa we utilize the Fraxel® system for non-ablative fractional laser skin resurfacing. Fraxel® is an ideal treatment for:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Sun-damaged skin
- Acne scarring
- Surgical scars
The Fraxel® can be safely used to treat men and women of all ages, as well as on all areas of the body. Fraxel® is a dual fractionated laser that utilizes a 1550nm or 1927nm laser to treat different depths of the skin. The two depths are not treated during the same appointment. It is ideal to discuss your skin and aesthetic goals with your practitioner prior to treatment.
The 1550nm laser allows for deep skin penetration, which allows for stimulation of new collagen through the healing process of the skin treated. This laying down of new collagen leads to reduction of wrinkles, skin tightening, and improved skin texture.
The 1927nm laser penetrates the skin more superficially, allowing for improved skin tone by treating stubborn pigment.
The Fraxel® laser system is a fractionated, non-ablative laser system—meaning that the entirety of the dermis is not treated, but only a small portion. As more healthy tissue is able to be left untreated, this means faster healing, less discomfort, and less downtime.
Fraxel® may be used with a topical local anesthetic alone, or we also offer ProNox patient-administered, inhaled nitrous, and oxygen analgesia.
