Fraxel® Laser Skin Resurfacing
As the years go by, time and exposure to the elements takes its toll on our delicate facial skin. Fraxel® laser skin resurfacing is a new technology that can help repair skin tissue and improve the appearance of weathered and aging skin. If you want a skin beautifying solution without downtime, consider how Fraxel® technology can help.
The Fraxel® laser uses an Erbium Laser to improve skin tone and texture. Using a process called “fractional resurfacing,” small areas of the skin receive microscopic laser spots. This unique ability to target treatment areas with such precision creates very noticeable results. Fine lines, discoloration, sunspots, crow’s feet and other facial imperfections can be minimized in a matter of minutes. Because Fraxel® is gentle and noninvasive, the skin heals quickly and reveals a softer, youthful glow.
Here’s how Fraxel® facial resurfacing works to repair problem areas:
- Dr. Peña or his physician’s assistant evaluates your skin using the Visia skin analysis system, helps you choose a facial rejuvenation treatment, and reviews all of the details with you.
- Dr. Peña uses the Fraxel® laser to target specific spots on the face. The erbium wavelengths pass through the outer layer of skin to stimulate collagen growth in skin’s underlying layers. Fine lines and wrinkles are reduced while surrounding tissue is left unaffected (a major advantage which makes the treatment more comfortable).
- During the skin’s healing process, healthy, new skin appears.
- The result is a refreshed, more vibrant facial appearance.
If Fraxel is not the best fit for your needs, Dr. Peña will be happy to discuss other laser skin resurfacing options to make sure you are provided with the most effective treatment. Additional options offered by Dr. Peña include:
- Sciton HALO™ and BBL™
These laser treatments can be used to address a variety of imperfections including skin tone, texture, pigmentation irregularities, and sun and age spots. They can also be used to diminish the appearance of fine lines, deep wrinkles, and acne scars to produce a smooth, blemish-free, and very attractive appearance.
You may be the perfect candidate for Fraxel® resurfacing if you have minor to moderate lines, wrinkles, acne scars, or sunspots. If you wish to minimize the look of deep wrinkles or creases, consider a cosmetic surgical procedure such as a brow lift or face lift.
