Fraxel Laser Therapy – Clearwater / Tampa Bay

If you are tired of looking in the mirror only to see acne scars, pigmentation problems, wrinkles, and sun damage on your face, Fraxel is the solution you’ve been looking for to eliminate those trouble spots and help you feel like a younger, more radiant version of yourself.

What is Fraxel?

Fraxel is a non-invasive laser therapy that uses light energy to provide multiple treatment options that address a variety of aging skin issues. This customized treatment is adjusted based on your needs and concerns, so the results are focused and effective.

How Does the Treatment Work?

The Fraxel laser creates tiny microthermal zones deep in the skin, almost like pixels on a TV screen, which essentially instigate the skin to repair the “damaged” zone by replacing the old skin with new, healthier skin. This process triggers the stimulation of collagen in the body and thus accelerates the production of new, healthy skin cells to eliminate imperfections. The treatment takes a mere 15-45 minutes. It’s non-invasive, easily managed, and very safe.

Why Does Collagen Matter?

Collagen is a buzz word in skincare, but why? It’s a fibrous protein that creates and maintains healthy skin that is able to maintain elasticity, heal after injury, stay hydrated, and ward off wrinkles. When your body stops producing collagen in your mid-twenties, your skin often becomes dry, thin, wrinkled, and aged.

What are the Results of Fraxel?

It will take between 1 and 3 weeks to see the results of Fraxel on your skin. Once the difference begins showing, you’ll notice diminished lines and wrinkles, disappearance of scarring, repaired pigmentation, and significantly reduced sun damage. Some patients see results after just one session, and up to five treatments can be used over the span of a few months to ensure maximum results.
