What Is Fraxel® Skin Rejuvenation?
Our Fraxel® Skin Rejuvenation laser is a safe, non-invasive treatment that effectively resurfaces damaged skin. The Fraxel® DUAL 1550/1927 resurfacing treatments offered at our center target both the surface and deeper layers of your skin, helping remove years from your appearance. By digging deep into your skin, the laser also facilitates long-term collagen production, leading to long-lasting rejuvenation results.
What Does Fraxel® Skin Rejuvenation Treat?
At Behr Laser & Skin Care Center, we personalize each and every treatment to cater to your unique needs. When you arrive for your appointment, one of our providers will take the time to evaluate your skin needs and determine if Fraxel® Skin Rejuvenation is right for you. If so, we will administer the treatment in a safe and effective manner to give you the beauty results you deserve. Some of the most common issues addressed by this laser system include:
How Does This Device Work?
Fraxel® Skin Rejuvenation is a dual-action system that involves the use of two skin resurfacing lasers. One or both of the two wavelengths can be used depending on concerns and desired outcomes. This system works by creating very small microthermal zones that penetrate deep into your skin. Your skin then repairs itself by pushing out the old damaged skin and replaces it with new skin. The two laser types involved in the procedure are:
- 1550: penetrates deep into the skin layers, specifically targeting concerns such as wrinkles and acne scars.
- 1927: Effectively targets tone, texture, and other more superficial signs of aging.
Treatment quality and duration vary based on your specific needs. However, each session takes about 20-25 minutes to perform. We generally recommend a series of 3-5 sessions spaced about 2-4 weeks apart for most issues.
What Can I Expect?
Results of this laser skin resurfacing treatment are both immediate and progressive. After your session, you may notice some mild side effects such as itching, dryness, peeling, and bronzing of the skin. However, these concerns will resolve usually in 5-7 days leaving your skin feeling radiant. Optimal improvements from this treatment are usually visible 2-3 months after your treatment course. Major long-term benefits include:
- Smoother skin
- Improved skin tone and texture
- Reduced wrinkles
- Improved appearance of surgical scar and acne scars
- Reduced pigment irregularities
