Fraxel laser is the ultimate solution for fractional skin resurfacing
Fraxel laser is considered the best solution for skin resurfacing, rejuvenation and replenishment. It is a new, FDA-approved laser technology for skin resurfacing. Through thousands of microscopic laser beams, Fraxel creates deep microscopic resurfacing columns into the skin. Old cells of the epidermis with aging lesions or discoloration are eliminated and the resurfacing and collagen production mechanism is activated. The skin is left intact as the laser beams penetrate deeper into its layers. Due to the gaps between the laser microscopic beams, the targeted area equals 20% to 30% of the skin’s surface, while a significant amount of fibroblasts is thus left intact, and smooth and fast resurfacing of the skin is ensured.
Differences between Fraxel Laser and Fractional Laser
In ABH Medical Group, Fraxel is used with absolute success not only on the face but also on the neck, hands, breasts as well as other areas of the body, where old generation laser could not be applied due to high risk of extended skin lesions. Another advantage of fraxel technology is the significant improvement of stretch marks; a field where all other methods gave poor results. Fraxel is a new technology laser with spectacular results. Its main difference compared to conventional fractional laser is in the way of scanning the area under treatment, as it does not leave areas untreated while penetrating both the superficial and the deeper layers, offering better and longer lasting results. Finally, the main difference is that Fraxel requires a much shorter recovery time.
There is no age restriction for this treatment. Fraxel laser is indicated for every age for deeper skin restructuring.
After Fraxel treatment skin rejuvenation begins immediately. The light redness which is caused, subsides in the first 24 hours, and the skin is already shiny and refreshed. The results last for several months as collagen production continues. If Fraxel treatment is applied to acne scars, or melasma, Dr. Fatsea will propose a treatment protocol with specific repetitions to ensure the best results.
Fraxel Laser is considered the ideal treatment for:
- Acne scars
- Thin wrinkles
- Discolorations and patches treatment
- Restructuring skin after solar radiation
- Hyperkeratosis treatment
