6 Things to Know About Fraxel® Laser Treatment

If you’re considering a skin resurfacing procedure for your skin issues, you have quite a few to choose from. From microdermabrasion to cosmetic surgery, there’s a whole range of options that offer varying results, many of which we offer right here at Ultimate Image Cosmetic Medical Center in Clearwater and Tampa. However, few services offer the effectiveness, safety, and versatility of the Fraxel skin resurfacing laser. Here, we’ll go over the top 6 reasons why our clients love Fraxel laser treatments:

1. Fraxel is Safe

Fraxel laser was introduced in 2004 by Reliant Technologies, and has since then helped thousands of patients improve the texture and condition of their skin. Since then, multiple studies have been done on the use of this technology for various skin conditions and with complementing therapies. These studies overwhelming support Fraxel as a safe skin resurfacing method (See source, source, and source for just a few examples).

2. Fraxel is Effective

Just take one look at our Fraxel before and after photos, and you’ll know why clients keep coming back for this amazing procedure. Fraxel is proven to help lessen the effects of acne scarring, fine lines, wrinkles, surgical scarring, photodamage, pigmentation issues, and even actinic keratosis.

3. Fraxel is Non-Invasive

Since the Fraxel Dual laser doesn’t actually pierce the skin, it is able to resurface the skin without the risks of more invasive procedures. This means less downtime, less risk of infection, less potential scarring, and less discomfort.

4. Fraxel is Versatile

Fraxel not only treats multiple skin issues with as few as one laser treatment, it can also be used on multiple parts of the body. While facial skin resurfacing is the most common treatment with Fraxel, we can also use Fraxel on the hands, feet, chest, neck, and anywhere else where your skin needs a new beginning.

5. Fraxel is Customizable

Not all cases of hyperpigmentation or acne scarring are the same, so their treatment shouldn’t be either! Fraxel allows the technician to adjust the frequency and settings so that the treatment is tailored to the client’s exact needs.

6. Fraxel Results Take Time

We all love some immediate gratification, but with Fraxel, patience is key. That’s because Fraxel results won’t be apparent for 1–3 weeks after the treatment, and more sessions may be needed for optimal results. It takes time for the body to produce collagen, elastin, cytokines, and other factors that will give your skin a healthy, fresh glow.
