Skin damage can occur due to various reasons, such as medical conditions, aging, acne, surgery and the sun. This damage can be repaired by a microscopic laser treatment called fraxel or fraxel laser, which is a set of three types of skin care treatments that utilize miscroscopic lasers.
It can be utilized effectively for the chest, face, back and neck. Insignificant wounds beneath the epidermis are created by what’s called a fraxel microscopic column treatment. The lesions formed activate the body’s natural power to act in response and begin to heal the damaged skin. This in turn generates the production of collagen or proteins which charge up the body tissues for the treatment. This therefore results in smooth, young and glowing skin without horrible scars and the blemishes.
Fraxel Refine – For Prevention and Maintenance
Fraxel laser refine is used for preventative measures of the skin and also to maintain the skin. This is the most mild of the fraxel treatments. The conditions that this is used for is for people who have age spots or uneven pigmentation. This can also be for fine lines around the eyes. The patients of this fraxel treatment can also easily begin their normal activities within a week of their treatment.
Fraxel Restore – For Mild to Severe Skin Damage
In case of mild to severe damage and skin conditions like wrinkles, scars from surgery or sever acne, the fraxel laser restore treatment works wonders. The treatment does cause its patients to take one or two days off from their daily routine. After two days they can begin working and doing what they normally do.
Fraxel Repair – For Severely Damaged Skin
This type of treatment is for those conditions where normally a face lift is the only option. There is normally a full week of recovery time before the patient is able to return to normal day-to-day tasks and activities.
One advantage of fraxel laser which has impressed many is its post treatment care. There is hardly any care needed because the wounds made by microscopic lasers are extremely minute and they get healed naturally as the body reacts to the treatment by producing proteins such as collagen and others.
Daily cleansing-toning-moisturizing is beneficial for the skin after the treatment. Moreover, post-treatment products can also be used which retain the skin’s texture. Vitamin supplements and a healthy diet are also recommended.
Usually the fraxel treatments needs very little time, at the most 1 hour, to be completed. Again, most skin conditions can be repaired with only one treatment. However, in extreme cases patients do require more than one sitting. Compared to similar skin treatments, the interruption of daily activities is for a very short time. The minimal recovery time taken for this laser ensures you can get back to your work and normal life faster and earlier.
