Fraxel In New York City

Fraxel laser treatments are an effective technique that helps enhance texture and correct discoloration of unattractive scars. People choose Fraxel in New York when they desire to eliminate acne scars, fine lines, hyperpigmentation, and dullness of the skin. The treatment exposes healthy layers of skin that glow.

This treatment option has grown increasingly popular for individuals who want to say goodbye to skin imperfections for good. Fraxel is recognized for generating extraordinary results that patients love. Fraxel Dual laser can be used to treat fine lines and superficial wrinkles of the face, crows feet and around the eyes, sun damage, skin discolorations, and acne scars. Additionally, virtually all skin types can be treated with Fraxel. The Fraxel system is based on the concept of "fractional photothermolysis", which delivers energy in a fractional grid to tiny areas within the skin while leaving the intervening neighboring areas within that grid untouched, stimulating more rapid healing.

Many people seek Fraxel in New York for troublesome areas of the skin. Many times the treatments are applied to the entire face, but, the most requested areas of treatment include the neck, arms, décolletage, and hands.

Laser treatments are more effective on raised acne scars than topical solutions. The laser is capable of reaching a deeper layer which creams and solutions cannot reach. It disintegrates the scar tissue to correct the difference in texture.

The most common options are two lasers with varying wavelengths in a single device. One wavelength aims to correct sun damage and coloration. The other targets deeper layers to diminish wrinkles and scarring, as well as restore even texture to the skin. The laser produces energy that develops spurts of thermal excitation in the skin that encourage the production of rejuvenated, healthy cells.

Recovery time is approximately one to three days following Fraxel laser resurfacing with the 1550 laser, and three to five days after Fraxel laser resurfacing with the 1927 laser (each of these numbers refers to the specific wavelength of its energy and target cells).

Traditional treatments utilize elevated temperatures to dissolve undesirable surface tissue. This can cause damage to other tissue in the area, substantial side effects, and require significant downtime. Non-ablative procedures are milder with fewer side effects and decreased downtime.

Fraxel laser treatments deliver the strength of ablative procedures with the same level of safety presented by the non-ablative approach, which delivers vivid results and decreased downtime. Fraxel utilizes specialized technology to identify damaged skin via a microscopic laser column. The columns deeply infiltrate the scar. A category of miniature hubs of scar tissue are treated at once without harming the surrounding tissue. This stimulates expedited healing and diminishes scar tissue in the areas treated.

This encourages the body to initiate the natural healing process. The recommended frequency of treatments is contingent upon the size and location of the target area. Noticeable results may be seen after the first or second session. It typically takes four or five treatments to eliminate scarring from acne or wrinkles. Fraxel is an effective option for both men and women of all ages and skin tones.

For most conditions, several Fraxel laser treatment sessions may be required. Often, individuals will see distinct changes and improvements following one or two Fraxel laser treatments, but everyone is unique, and three or four treatments may be required to achieve the best Fraxel laser resurfacing results.

As you prepare for Fraxel laser treatments, it’s important that you take the necessary precautions to ensure the best results. You shouldn’t have any infections, extensive outbreaks, or open wounds in the facial area. Terminate the use of products containing retinoid seven days prior to treatment. A topical solution will be applied to the treatment area just before treatment begins. The treatment area will be numb for approximately 45 minutes, while the actual process takes up to 30 minutes, based on the area of treatment. Aftercare is an important aspect of the Fraxel treatment process. Avoid the use of harsh skin products or acne medication in the treatment area for at least a week. Cleanse the treatment area with a mild cleanser and moisturize afterward. This should be done twice per day. Do not pick or peel the treatment area, as it could lead to severe redness and prolong the healing process. The treatment area will peel on its own.

Fraxel Dual 1550 or 1927 laser resurfacing treatments are performed after topical anesthetic application, and you may leave the office immediately after treatment. You may look red and slightly swollen after your treatment, which may last for two or three days after Fraxel 1550, and for four or five days after Fraxel 1927. After Fraxel treatment for pigmentation and brown spots (1927), there may be some crusting at the sites of the dark spots for several days.
