Age spots are flat, brown, tan, or black spots that develop on the skin with age These spots typically appear on areas of the skin that have been exposed to the sun. While age spots are entirely harmless, they can contribute to an aging appearance. Because of this, many people seek out treatments to eliminate age spots and restore a clear, youthful-looking complexion.
Fraxel laser therapy is a treatment option available for patients looking to remove age spots with a safe, non-surgical procedure. This advanced laser treatment has shown striking results in rejuvenating the skin and reducing discoloration. Let’s learn more!
What is Fraxel Laser Therapy?
Fraxel laser therapy is a non-invasive laser treatment that utilizes light energy to target a variety of skin imperfections, including age spots. The advanced laser forms very small microthermal zones deep down in the skin; this stimulates the body’s healing process to regenerate the skin cells in each zone. Collagen and new, healthy skin cells are produced to replace the damaged skin cells. This gradually diminishes the appearance of imperfections.
The precision of the Fraxel laser is ideal for age spots. The laser targets the discolored areas of the skin but leaves the surrounding tissue unaffected. So, while controlled damage to stimulate healing will occur at each age spot, the healthy tissue around each imperfection will not be affected by the treatment.
The Results of Fraxel For Age Spots
Between one to three weeks after your session of Fraxel laser therapy, you’ll start to see an improvement in the appearance of age spots, pigmentation, and sun damage. Patients can undergo as many as five Fraxel sessions, spaced out over the course of a few months, to achieve the best possible results. Each Fraxel session takes just 15 to 45 minutes to complete, making it a quick and convenient treatment without having to compromise on results.
