WHAT TO EXPECT?
Our talented team will perform an in-depth examination of your skin before recommending treatment. During this time, we will gladly answer any questions you have and explain your options to you in clear detail. If it is determined that Fraxel® is the treatment best suited to your needs, our skin care experts will work closely with you to ensure that your goals for treatment are met. As a patient of our acclaimed plastic surgery practice, we will provide you with the highest quality of care imaginable and do whatever we can to make sure that you leave our facility feeling completely satisfied with your treatment.
Prior to treatment, your skin will be cleansed and a topical anesthetic will be administered to the treatment area.
Fraxel® treatment lasts between 15 and 45 minutes, depending on the size of the area being treated. Treatment may need to be repeated up to five times over the course of a few months to produce optimal results. Our doctors most commonly utilize the Fraxel® DUAL 1550/1927 laser to target aesthetic flaws and stimulate the production of new skin cells. Following treatment, your skin may feel tender, as if you had a sunburn.
Patients are generally able to return to their daily activities very soon after treatment.
