Your skin is the largest organ in your body. It breathes, repairs itself, and even gives those looking at you an indication of your age and your general health.
But what if your skin isn’t something you’re proud of?
For many people, their skin is a reminder of the trauma of teenage acne or the drama of growing old. Even though they may feel young at heart, their skin may hold them back from being the person they truly want to be.
Makeup can cover some of the damage, but scars, spots, marks and signs of aging all exist deep underneath the surface of the skin and are harder to cover. Fraxel laser treatments are the answer.
Thankfully, bad skin isn’t something you have to suffer from forever. Whether ice pick scars are your problem, fine lines and wrinkles are causing you stress or age spots stop you from feeling your best – there’s a solution: Fraxel Laser Resurfacing.
The Fraxel laser is a skin rejuvenating laser used to improve the texture of the skin. It has been expertly designed to gently burn off the skin’s surface layers using a targeted beam. During the healing process, new, fresh, smooth skin is revealed. The procedure is safe and non-invasive with minimal side effects and short recovery time.
Having laser skin treatment performed
The Fraxel laser treatment stimulates your skin’s natural collagen production, working from the inside out to bring you smoother, tighter skin. The laser works deep into the layers of your skin – the dermis – to smooth the creases that cause scars, fine lines and wrinkles on the surface.
The laser uses precise technology, so only the treated areas are affected. Surrounding skin surfaces are untouched by the laser for optimal and precise results exactly where you want them.
Everyone’s skin is different, and your Fraxel treatment can be customized to your needs. The treatment process usually lasts 15-45 minutes, and three to five treatments are recommended for full results. Most patients report the sensation of a light sunburn after treatment, but this will subside. Other common side effects are flaking, peeling and minor itching and skin dryness.
A new you for the holiday season
With the holiday season approaching, there’s a great deal of pressure on everyone (women especially) to look their best. Thanksgiving dinners with the whole family and Christmas parties at work, home and everywhere else can be a source of anxiety for those who aren’t fully comfortable in their own skin.
You may think it’s slightly early talking about the holiday season already. After all, it’s only just turned fall. But in the case of Fraxel laser treatment, treatment times and recovery periods need to be taken into account. While the procedure lasts shorter than the average lunch break, it can take up to several weeks for the skin to heal fully.
While it’s almost certain you’ll be thinking about Thanksgiving arrangements and Christmas presents pretty soon, include fixing your skin in your short-term plans in order to enjoy being the new you in time for the fun and festivities that await!
