In the decade since Fraxel first pioneered true fractional laser technology, more than 800,000 people have received Fraxel treatment. That’s nearly a million treatments for women and men of all ethnicities, all with their own reasons for wanting to look and feel younger.
The technology behind Fraxel is as revolutionary as the results it can deliver. Unlike other laser treatments, Fraxel is able to precisely treat thousands of microscopic areas of skin, using pinpoint laser beams that penetrate beneath the skin surface to eliminate old, damaged skin cells. Fraxel stimulates the body’s own natural healing process which replaces damaged skin with fresh, glowing, healthy skin.
Your skin is unique –your generic make-up, lifestyle and personal history all contribute to how your skin looks and feels. With Fraxel treatment, your technician can develop can develop a treatment plan tailored to your skin individual needs.
“By design, Fraxel treatments can target between 5 and 35 percent of the skin’s surface, leaving the remaining 65 to 95 percent available to quickly heal the treated areas.”
Since Fraxel treatment is so precise, it is safe and effective on delicate skin areas like the face, neck, chest and hands. You can expect two levels of results, immediate and progressive. Immediately after initial healing is complete, the surface of your skin will feel softer, look brighter and tone will start to become even. Progressive results occur over three to six months as the deeper layers of skin continue to heal. Fraxel treatment promotes your skin’s own healing process, resulting in natural rejuvenation that removes years from your appearance.
Depending on your skin, you can decide how you want to attain the remarkable results Fraxel treatment delivers. Aggressive treatments require fewer sessions and results may include more post treatment redness and possible swelling – meaning a few days of social downtime. Less aggressive treatments accomplish the same results, with a few more treatment sessions and less pronounced side effects. For some types of skin and skin conditions, gentle and/or fewer treatments are best. Fraxel treatment was specifically engineered to give your technician complete treatment control based on your particular needs.
