The skin can be severely damaged during the summer months. Most people are spending more time outdoors in the summertime, and sun exposure can do a number on your skin. You might have new skin blemishes from sun exposure, or you might have some new lines and wrinkles that have formed in the sun. In any case, Fraxel laser treatments can be very beneficial in reversing the damage done to your skin over the summer.
What Is Fraxel?
Fraxel laser therapy is a noninvasive laser treatment. It targets the deep layers of the skin and creates tiny microthermal zones similar to pixels on a television screen. This treatment stimulates the skin’s natural healing abilities and sends collagen and other nutrients to the area.
Why Is Collagen Important?
Collagen is a compound produced by the body that promotes the health of your skin. Collagen is necessary for skin to remain supple, firm, and tight. It is also necessary for the skin to heal itself. Over time, the body produces less collagen. When you get older, you will start to see lines and wrinkles and other effects of sun damage more frequently than before. Fraxel facial treatments work because they stimulate additional collagen production to smooth out the lines, wrinkles, acne scars, and other blemishes.
