Anti-aging skin procedures are more popular than ever, especially laser skin rejuvenation. Laser resurfacing treats wrinkles, sagging skin, age spots, melasma, acne scars, uneven skin tone and more. Solta Medicalâs family of lasers is versatile and especially effective due to their fractional technology. Laser Fraxel results show improvement in total skin resurfacing and rejuvenation.
FRAXEL RESULTS FROM FRACTIONAL TECHNOLOGY
Fractional laser technology only treats microscopic sections of the skin that require treatment. This leaves surrounding skin intact and undisturbed, speeding up the healing time. Fraxel results are due the lasers stimulating collagen production, which in turn creates a tighter and less wrinkled skin appearance. Collagen is one of the most important factors of youthful skin. Collagen production also helps to even skin tone and eliminate other imperfections.
Fraxel currently has three laser treatments:
- Fraxel re:fine
- Fraxel DUAL 1550/1927
- Fraxel re:pair
Each Fraxel model uses fractional laser resurfacing technology. The re:fine and DUAL are non-ablative, while the re:pair is ablative.
Fraxel laser treatments stimulate the bodyâs ability to produce collagen. The light energy from the laser turns to heat on either the skin surface or dermis skin layer. The skin treats the heat source as another injury since the area is either ablated (vaporized) from the re:pair or aggravated from the DUAL and re:fine. Skin then begins the wound healing process. Both fractional approaches produce healthier collagen configurations.
In terms of acne scarring, Fraxel results are seen because the new collagen fibers fill in the depression from the initial scarring. With several treatments, the skin becomes smoother. The key is breaking down the thick consistency of the original collagen fibers from the acne.
Improved skin texture is also apparent with Fraxel results from treatments. Consult with a board-certified dermatologist to see how Fraxel results can help you with a variety of cosmetic and medical conditions. Each one addresses some of the most common skin issues, including wrinkles, sagging skin, uneven skin tone, sun damage and scars.
