Mariposa Aesthetics & Laser Center has an excellent option for combating aging and the environment’s effects on your skin: Fraxel laser treatments.
Fraxel laser treats many common signs of aging and skin concerns, with minimal recovery time. Fraxel offers natural looking results while being non-invasive, non-surgical, simple and effective.
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 Keratosis
Fraxel technology works by creating tiny areas of injury to your skin — about one-tenth the diameter of a shaft of hair — without affecting surrounding skin. This activates your skin’s natural healing ability, including the regeneration of collagen. Collagen is a natural protein that keeps the skin firm, plump and line-free. That’s the secret to smooth, youthful skin.
Since its first use in 2003, more than 800,000 Fraxel procedures have been performed. Your results will depend on what you are treating, the individual condition of your skin, and how many treatments you have or need.
Results are visible within a week of just one treatment, but the best results come after a series of four Fraxel treatments. For up to six months after the treatment, new collagen is consistently developing, prolonging the effects of treatment and giving you the youthful, glowing skin you want.
When you have your treatment at Mariposa Aesthetics & Laser Center, our treatment professionals will advise you on the best aftercare and at-home skin care for your skin’s unique needs in order to prolong results. You can feel confident that our recommendations can and will make a long-term difference, as we offer only the finest options for you.
