About the Fraxel™ Laser
The Fraxel™ laser emits pulses of high-energy light to penetrate the skin surface, spurring collagen production in the specified treatment areas. Fraxel™ is a safe, non-invasive skin resurfacing treatment that reduces the appearance of blemishes and other imperfections for smoother skin and a more youthful appearance. Fraxel™ skin resurfacing can be used to treat:
- Acne scars
- Uneven skin pigmentation
- Poor skin texture
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Age or sun spots
- Surgical or accidental scars
The FraxelTM Laser Treatment Process
Prior to treatment, you will meet with Dr. Zweiback. He will examine your skin to determine your candidacy and identify the specific areas you wish to address. Based on your goals for treatment, Dr. Zweiback can tell you how many treatment sessions you will require. For the best results, most patients require three to five treatment sessions with several weeks between each session.
A topical numbing ointment will be applied to the treatment area and cold air will be used to keep the area cool while Dr. Zweiback applies the laser. You should feel minimal discomfort during the procedure. Following your treatment, you will likely feel a sunburn-like sensation, which should subside within a few hours. You may experience some redness and swelling for a few days after your treatment. Ice packs can be used to reduce swelling, and moisturizing cream can reduce redness.
As you heal, you will notice changes in the surface of your skin. It will appear smoother and brighter with a more even tone. Over the next three to six months, you will continue to see significant improvements in your skin as the deeper layers benefit from newly produced collagen. Most patients experience long-lasting results with proper skin care.
