The cosmetic industry is a multi-billion-dollar industry. The pressure that many people feel to look young is what drives this industry. There have been a lot of procedures that have been created over the past decade that have revolutionized cosmetics. People now have more options than just getting a facelift or some other form of cosmetic surgery to keep themselves looking younger. Now there are injectable products, products that exfoliate the skin and products that use lasers to keep a person looking younger.
Fraxel® laser resurfacing is a product that is growing in popularity in the cosmetic world. At first, when people hear about using lasers to resurface the appearance of their face, they may feel nervous. However, Fraxel® laser resurfacing is a safe treatment that is designed to microscopically affect a person’s skin. Then, it causes the body’s own healing process to kick into overdrive. Unlike previous forms of skin resurfacing, Fraxel® does not completely destroy the surface of your face. The microscopic effects to the face lead to new collagen production. It is as if tiny, heated holes are poked into selected parts of the skin. As the body repairs these micro holes, it will also repair pigmentation issues, wrinkling issues and other skin irregularities.
Fraxel® treatments can be used on delicate parts of the face, including around the mouth and around the eyes. It can also address large pores on the nose and other parts of the face. Fraxel® is performed in a series of treatments. In the days and weeks after the initial treatment, collagen production increases. This increase in collagen production will last four months after the procedure has been completed. The result is that you will have a smoother, more vibrant-looking face for months to come. The downtime after a Fraxel® treatment is approximately two days.
During the treatment, you can expect to experience a warm sensation. Once the procedure is done, you will be given some indications by our medical professional on how to care for your skin over the next few days. However, once you have completely healed from the process, you will be left with younger-looking skin that is healthy, vibrant and much more attractive.
