This month, Smith Plastic Surgery is offering full face Fraxel treatment for $600. If you are unfamiliar with this type of treat, you are probably wondering what it is. Fraxel is the brand name of one of the first fractional lasers, which creates tiny microthermal zones deep within the skin, which the skin repairs by pushing out old sun damaged skin, replacing it with new skin. Each session replaces approximately 15% to 20% of sun damaged, scarred, or wrinkled skin, triggering the body’s natural healing process by accelerating the production of collagen.
What Does a Fraxel Treatment Address?
In addition to sun damage, scars, and wrinkles, a Fraxel treatment can also improve the skin texture and tone, fine lines around the eyes and on the eyelids, and reduce precancerous lesions. While it is not good for redness, Fraxel treatments can address brown pigmentation on the skin. These benefits come with minimal discomfort or risks.
Can I Combine Fraxel with Other Treatments?
If you are interested in getting other treatments, such as Juvederm or other temporary or semi-permanent fillers, you should wait one week after having Fraxel done. Consult with your cosmetic physician regarding any additional treatments you might want done and what the waiting period is.
How Long Does it Last?
Depending on how well you protect your skin from sun damage, the effects of your Fraxel treatment can last up to a year. Remember to always wear sunscreen to ensure your skin enjoys the effects of this treatment for as long as possible.
