Fraxel Laser Treatment

We are pleased to be one of the first practices in the country to offer Fraxel Laser Treatment (FLT). This breakthrough procedure is safe and effective in repairing aging and sun-damaged skin.

Understanding the Treatment

Think of your skin as a family portrait or digital photograph in need of high-quality restoration or touch up. Just as a damaged painting is delicately restored on small area at a time, the Fraxel laser improves your appearance by affecting only a fraction of your skin each treatment with millions of tiny microscopic laser spots. Each treatment addresses between 15 and 20% of your skin. FLT is performed using a topical anesthetic and will not interrupt your busy lifestyle!

Benefits of FLT
  • Dramatically improves wrinkles around your eyes (crows feet)
  • Eliminates brown spots and melasma
  • Improves skin texture, tone and firmness
  • Removes signs of aging on our neck, chest, hands and arms

Preparing for Treatment

FRAXEL Laser Treatment can be performed right in your doctor's office using only a topical anesthetic in most cases. The treatment area will be thoroughly cleansed prior to the procedure. OptiGuide Blue, a FDA certified water-soluble tine, is applied to the treatment area to highlight the contours of the skin. Then, an anesthetic ointment may be applied. The colored tint is washed off after treatment.

In an FDA-cleared study of FRAXEL treatment of a review panel of prominent expert dermatologist all reported significant improvements in skin texture, wrinkles and skin discolorations such as age spots and sun spots.

What Happens After Treatment
You will experience a mild sunburn sensation for about an hour and then virtually no discomfort. The skin will have a pinkish tone for five to seven days. This is a normal sign that skins is healing deeply. Swelling is minimal and generally resolves in two to three days.

You may apply make-up or shave soon after treatment. Typically patients find they can return to work following treatment or the next day.

New epidermal skin develops immediately, within 24 hours. This process of skin repair involves:

Bronzing: Your skin will naturally and vigorously exfoliate as the reorganized epidermal skin replaces dead tissue. Flaking is similar to that of minor sunburn, but without the associated pain. Use of a moisturizer will mask the appearance of flaking.

Sunscreen: Use sunscreen at least twice daily to protect your skin from sun exposure during the healing phase and for several months after treatment. Apply a moisturizing sun block with an SPF of at least 30-plus. For added protection from sunlight, use wide-brimmed hats.

Over the following weeks and months, the body repairs the deeper dermal tissues that have been affected by FRAXEL Laser Treatment, producing beneficial changes associated with a healthy appearance.

Turn Back the Clock on Aging

After your very first FRAXEL Laser Treatment you will begin to feel the difference in your skin, as it gradually becomes softer, smoother and fresher. Fine lines around your eyes will noticeably fade, So will uneven coloring and the brown spots caused by aging and sun exposure.

Improve Your Skin with Each Visit

After several treatments, your friends and family will marvel at how youthful and healthy your skin looks. Finally, a proven, safe approach to repairing aging and sun-damaged skin.
