When you are looking for a safe and effective way to help combat common signs of aging and the environment on your skin, Mariposa MedSpa has an excellent option: Fraxel Laser treatments.

Fraxel laser treatments are non-invasive, non-surgical, simple and effective. This kind of laser treats many common signs of aging and skin concerns, with minimal recovery time or downtime. Fraxel offers results that look and feel natural and don’t require time away from your normal everyday activities.

The most common skin issues that Fraxel can help with are as follows:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles, including crow’s feet and brow lines
  • Scarring and blemishes from acne and other skin conditions
  • Hyperpigmentation, also known as age spots and melasma
  • The effects of sun damage and environmental damage
  • Actinic Kerotosis

Fraxel technology works by creating tiny areas of injury to your skin. The sites of “damage” are extremely small — about one-tenth the diameter of a shaft of hair — and has no effect on surrounding skin. By creating these damage points, your skin’s natural healing ability kicks in, including the regeneration of collagen. Collagen is a natural protein in the connective tissues of skin that is responsible for keeping the skin firm, plump and free of lines. That is how Fraxel treats and corrects common skin issues and leaves you with natural-looking, youthful skin.

Fraxel has been in use since 2003. Since then, more than 800,000 procedures have been performed with this technology. The results from Fraxel are very good. Your results will depend on different factors, including what you are treating, the individual condition of your skin, and how many treatments you have or need.

For many people, results are visible within a week of just one treatment, but the best results come after a series of Fraxel treatments. Plus, collagen continues to develop after treatment is completed, sometimes for up to six months. That means new collagen is consistently developed to help prolong the effects of treatment and give you the youthful, glowing skin you want.

Your medical spa professional can also advise you on after care that can help keep Fraxel results around even longer. For example, sun protection and careful maintenance of your skin matter. When you have your treatment here at Mariposa MedSpa, our medical spa professionals will advise you on the best aftercare and at-home skin care for your skin’s unique needs. And since we offer only the finest in skin care products and regimens, you can feel confident that our recommendations can and will make a long-term difference.
