The season of cheer is on the way. It is a very social time of year, but if you’re feeling like the Grinch because of the appearance of wrinkles, age spots, sun damage or other skin issues, you may not be feeling it this year. If you look in the mirror and see someone who looks a lot older than you feel, it might be time to learn how Fraxel treatment can reverse the signs of aging on the skin.
Using advanced laser technology, the Fraxel system works to reverse the “worn” appearance of your skin that happens as we age. The result is a more youthful appearance that can rejuvenate your state of mind as well.
When given by a trained dermatologist, Fraxel treatment can work wonders on many problem areas of the skin. Here are a few of the areas Fraxel addresses:
Wrinkles/fine lines: These are often the first signs of aging that appear on the skin.
Scarring: Battle scars are one thing, but there’s no need to go through life with the jagged appearance of surface scarring.
Pigment issues: Although pigmentation issues such as age spots aren’t necessarily dangerous, they don’t look very good.
Damage from the sun: Repeated skin damage can take a toll on your skin’s youthfulness over the years. Fraxel can help reverse the aging.
For more than a decade, the Fraxel system for skin rejuvenation has been leading the way to a younger and more vibrant appearance. In head-to-head comparisons, Fraxel easily beats out other methods commonly used to address aging skin problems.
· Creams, ointments and jells don’t really work for anything but the most minor skin issues.
· Surgery is good if you have plenty of time, plenty of money and plenty of drugs for the pain during recovery.
· Peels are popular, but they only have a fraction of the transformative power available with Fraxel laser treatment.
· Fillers can do wonders for your appearance, but many people aren’t thrilled with this intrusive procedure.
Fraxel also works wonders, and it’s totally non-intrusive.
How does Fraxel laser treatment work?
Although the science that went into developing Fraxel is quite complex, the way it works, from a patient’s standpoint, isn’t.
The Fraxel hand piece that goes against your skin is comfortable, accurate and safe. During treatment, the top layers of the skin are penetrated by fractional lasers. This laser energy resurfaces the skin by stimulating the production of collagen, which acts to “plump out” your skin. The result is what seems like wrinkles and age spots literally disappearing.
