Skin Resurfacing for Tone, Texture & Early Signs of Ageing
April 8, 2016
Fraxel® 1927 skin resurfacing treatments help keep you looking and feeling fabulous:
Smoother, fresher looking skin
Improved tone, texture and pigmentation
Effective treatment of pre-cancerous lesions (actinic keratosis)
Excellent treatment for face, neck, chest, arms, legs and back
You do a lot to look and feel great, finding the time to enjoy life to the fullest while still taking care of your body and skin. Yet, the effects of sun, pollution, stress and fatigue can add up, keeping your skin from looking as good as you feel.
The Fraxel 1927 treatment uses patented fractional laser technology to target ageing and sun damaged skin, on the face and body. It penetrates the superficial skin layers, stimulating your body’s own natural healing process and generating new collagen. Old and damaged cells are replaced with fresh, glowing, healthy skin.
“The Fraxel 1927 treatment is a non-ablative laser skin procedure that can resurface damaged skin and uncover the youthful skin you long for.”
How does it work?
Fraxel treatment uses patented fractional laser technology to target damage skin with microscopic laser columns that penerate superficial skin layers. The laser treats only a fraction of tissue at a time, leaving the surrounding tissue untouched, which promotes rapid healing. This stimulates your body’s own natural healing process, replacing the old and damaged cells with fresh, glowing, healthy skin.
When do results appear, and how long do they last?
The results are both immediate and progressive. Soon after the treatment, the surface of the skin will feel softer and smoother, look brighter and show a more even tone. The next 3 to 6 months will bring more improvement as your skin continues to create new collagen. Results are long lasting depending on your lifestyle, age, skin condition and skin care regimen.
How many treatments are required?
Desired outcomes are typically reached in multiple treatments. The specific number of treatments is tailored to your goals and desired results, as well as your lifestyle. We will work with you to identify the appropriate level of treatment and your preferred downtime.
What you should expect after the treatment
Depending on the level of treatment, you may experience redness or swelling after the procedure which diminishes as quickly as the next day or over the next several days. Your skin will naturally bronze over the next week or two. As you continue treatment, the sunburned-to-bronzed appearance will repeat after each treatment. As with a sunburn, your skin will flake and exfoliate normally, revealing fresher, glowing and smoother looking and feeling skin.
Is it safe?
We will give you specific instructions about what to expect for your particular treatment and how to minimise side effects. Fraxel 1927 has been extensively tested in clinical trials and has been used on over 10,000 patients worldwide.
“Fraxel will bring the more radiant you back. Fraxel stimulates cellular turnover and replaces old cells with new, bringing fresh, healthy, glowing skin back to the surface.”
