What is Fraxel™ laser skin resurfacing?
Fraxel™ laser resurfacing uses advanced laser technology to stimulate your body’s collagen production. When your collagen production increases, your body works to reverse the effects of aging and sun damage from within. The most common treatment areas with our NYC Fraxel™ laser are the face, neck, chest and hands.
Why should I choose Fraxel™ laser resurfacing?
Laser skin resurfacing addresses many of the most common signs of aging that have been treated traditionally with surgery. The technologies behind laser treatments work with your skin’s natural processes and minimize downtime and recovery. Additionally, our team has worked with Fraxel™ laser technology for years, giving us total expertise in its use and nuances. If we happen to recommend an alternative treatment to help you reach your cosmetic goals, we will be forthcoming with you. Your first step is a consultation in our offices in NYC or NJ.
How does Fraxel™ laser skin resurfacing work?
Laser energy has been used for many years to fight the signs of aging. Lasers work by protecting untreated skin from damage while applying laser energy only to the targeted layers of your skin. New skin cells form after treatment, and your fine lines and wrinkles slowly fade away.
Is the procedure painful?
During your NYC Fraxel™ laser procedure, you will be given either a topical or local anesthetic; sedation is not necessary. After the procedure, most patients describe the discomfort as similar to a mild sunburn, which subsides quickly.
How long will it take to heal?
Recovery after your NJ Fraxel™ laser resurfacing can take less than a week for lighter resurfacing procedures, and up to several weeks for deeper procedures. After treatment, you will be asked to keep the area moist. The initial redness after the procedure will fade over a period of time; however, camouflage makeup may be used to cover the redness. There is no downtime after Fraxel™ Restore resurfacing.
How soon will I see results?
Clinical studies suggest that a gradual improvement of wrinkled, sun-damaged skin can be achieved with three to seven Fraxel™ Restore laser treatments, spaced at one to four-week intervals.
What is the cost of Fraxel™ laser skin resurfacing?
Every patient is different. They have different cosmetic goals, as well as underlying circumstances. To provide you with a cost for treatment, you will first undergo a private consultation with one of our board-certified dermatologists in NYC or NJ. At Skin Laser & Surgery Specialists, we also accept CareCredit® and Alphaeon™ Credit to help you rapidly get the treatment you desire.
How do I get started?
Our dermatologists will be happy to discuss our NJ Fraxel™ laser skin resurfacing with you. The first step in discovering if the Fraxel™ treatment is right for you is to schedule a consultation with a physician. Your skin will be thoroughly evaluated, and a treatment plan will be prescribed. Please feel free to call for a private consultation at one of our offices in NYC or NJ.
