The Center for Skin was one of the earliest practices to offer Fraxel Laser Treatment, which is used for skin resurfacing; treatment of wrinkles around the eyes; and treatment of pigmented lesions, such as age spots, sunspots, and melasma. After Fraxel Laser Treatment, skin generally feels softer, looks smoother and tighter, and pores are usually smaller.
Fraxel improves your appearance by affecting only a fraction of your skin at a time with thousands of microscopic laser spots. Think of it as digital photo-editing software for your skin.
Fraxel Laser Treatment can be performed in our office using topical anesthesia. Treatment takes about 30 minutes, depending on the size of the area(s) being treated, and patients can generally resume routine activities right after treatment.
For optimal improvement, a series of three to five treatments spaced two to four weeks apart has been shown to be most effective. Results are both immediate and progressive, with noticeable, beneficial effects accumulating over one to three months.
