Fraxel Before and After
Laser skin resurfacing is used on various areas of the face. Hand rejuvenation is also an option with Fraxel Dual. Skin looks younger and refreshed after treatment:
How the Treatment Works
Fraxel Dual emits tiny columns of laser energy, which go beneath your skin to rejuvenate from the inside out. The treatment causes remodeling of the collagen beneath your skin and produces new skin cells. It targets specific areas while leaving surrounding tissue untouched.
Most patients report a moderate warming sensation during treatment. The device also blows cool air against the skin to counter the warmth. A topical anesthetic may also be applied to the skin for further comfort.
You may feel like you have a sunburn for a day after Fraxel treatment. You may also experience redness and swelling in the treatment area. Your skin will peel for a few days, revealing fresh skin beneath. We will make sure you have complete aftercare instructions and know what to expect after your treatment, including whether you may want to take some time off from work or social activities.
You must wear sunscreen, a wide-brim hat or otherwise avoid direct sunlight for several days. Your skin will be more vulnerable to UV damage during this time. A noticeable improvement in your skin's tone and texture will take shape about a week later, and the very best results continue to form over the next few weeks.
It is possible Dr. Corey will recommend multiple Fraxel treatment sessions, spaced 6-8 weeks apart. While some people benefit from a single treatment, in some cases several treatments provide the best results. Additionally, you may wish to combine laser skin resurfacing with other rejuvenating treatments offered at our practice. Rely on Dr. Corey and our team to describe all of your options.
