What is Fraxel Laser?

Advantix SEO - Thursday, March 14, 2019


Have you noticed early signs of aging? Has tanning in your teens and twenties left you with sun-damaged skin? Do you want a fresh, glowing complexion without make-up?

If you said yes, come discover the latest innovation to rejuvenate tired, dull skin – Fraxel. This leading-edge skin treatment uses precision lasers to target the top layers of the dermis, revealing fresh skin and plumping the collagen beneath. For fresh, revitalized skin, book an appointment with your local Dermatology Consultants of Frisco. With locations in Frisco, Denton, and Carrollton to serve you, we offer comprehensive dermatology services for all patients, including general, pediatric, surgical, and cosmetic treatments.

The precision dermatology services from Dermatology Consultants of Frisco features Fraxel laser treatment. Using advanced micro repair technology, it enhances the body's ability to naturally heal damaged skin, accelerating the healing process for an all-over glow. The process works using the light from the laser to promote the formation of new collagen, giving you the resilience and plumpness of youthful skin. Fraxel may be right for you if you:

  • Have scarring from acne
  • Are prone to blemishes
  • Have visible age spots or uneven skin tone due to sun damage
  • Fine lines, or "crows feet" around the eyes
  • Light smile lines around the nose and mouth – "parenthesis"
  • Furrows between your eyes or lines on your forehead

Just one treatment with Fraxel laser can immediately reduce overall damage, working deeply to soften lines and enhance the texture of the skin's surface. This is a safe, non-invasive treatment, without the dangers of toxins like other procedures. In fact, over a quarter of a million dermatology patients have successfully experienced impressive results with Fraxel. The deep tissue penetration of precision lasers is unmatched by over the counter creams and prescription ointments, with long-lasting results.

Fraxel is especially beneficial to those with acne scars or other skin damage that's left behind icepick, boxcar, or rolling scars. Fraxel removes the textured, bumpy skin and allows all-over new growth, especially around the cheeks. The difference is the way that Fraxel breaks up the scar tissue in the top layers of skin, tough adhesions that regular creams or even deep exfoliation just can't reach. Using penetrative action that smooths deep tissue without damaging the delicate skin around the face is what makes Fraxel unique.

Fraxel treatment involves lasers with two different strengths. A lighter one erases the appearance of sun damage and mottled pigmentation, while a more powerful one goes deeper, smoothing wrinkles, lines, and scarring. Both work by creating microscopic columns of thermal "destruction", breaking down fibers and allowing your skin to naturally regenerate and heal from the inside out. Your dermatologist will precisely combine these two treatments to give you the smooth, youthful complexion you desire.

Fraxel treatment is straightforward, easily tolerable and taking under an hour; sessions typically last 15 to 45 minutes. The non-invasive nature of the treatment means little painful downtime afterward, typically just three to five days. Although Fraxel is a minimally invasive procedure, it's important to only receive this from a board-certified, fully trained dermatologist, with the knowledge and skills to ensure proper healing and care for the delicate skin of your face. Dermatology Consultants adheres to rigorous industry standards or professionalism and patient care.

Fraxel is just one of many custom skincare treatments available at Dermatology Consultants of Frisco. Give us a call or visit us online to explore our options and book your free consultation today!
