Aging is a natural part of life and brings with it many wonderful changes. It also changes our appearance. Age becomes evident in the color and thickness of hair, wrinkles, dark spots and lines on the skin. Fortunately, modern technology has made it possible for us to reduce the signs of aging. At Cosmetique Aesthetics, we provide this service to our clients with Fraxel laser therapy.
The Fraxel laser is an FDA–approved treatment that uses both ablative and non-ablative lasers to promote cell growth and healing in your skin. By encouraging the natural regeneration of collagen, your skin heals itself with no need for invasive surgical procedures.
Fraxel lasers don’t just target all the skin on your face. Instead, microthermal zones are created in the form of deep columns within your skin. This allows the energy to reach deeper than alternative topical treatments, repairing cells from within. Tissue around microthermal zones are not affected by the Fraxel laser, leaving healthy skin alone and replacing discolored, aged skin with healthy cells.
Fraxel laser therapy is used to treat a variety of conditions and symptoms of aging, such as:
To get the best results from Fraxel, up to 5 sessions over a series of 3 months are required. Everybody recovers differently, meaning it could take more or fewer treatments depending on your skin’s reaction.
Prior to treatment, your skin will be gently cleaned, and a topical anesthetic is provided to guarantee your procedure remains painless and comfortable. The week before treatment, we discourage the use of any retinol products, as they could cause adverse reactions when combined with the laser.
During treatment, you may feel warmth or slight pressure, but the anesthetic promotes a comfortable environment throughout the procedure. The laser is targeted toward problem areas, which were marked before commencing.
After treatment, you may notice skin appears pink and feels mildly sunburned. This feeling fades 60-minutes after the procedure. The discoloration is caused by cell regeneration and should remain for a week following Fraxel therapy.
If you’re still on the fence about Fraxel therapy, our friendly and professional staff are happy to answer any questions you might have. The benefits of this treatment are substantial and include:
While we firmly believe in the concept of inner beauty here at Cosmetique Aesthetics, we also understand that sometimes inner beauty is a reflection about how we feel about ourselves on the outside. Loving yourself where you are without invasive plastic surgery is important, and Fraxel laser therapy can help.
