With age and sun exposure, the skin’s collagen layer begins to thin. Because our collagen layer acts as a foundation that supports the skin, this thinning contributes to the development of wrinkles.   Sun damage is evident in uneven pigment and age spots.   A new generation of laser rejuvenation treats these unwanted changes using fractional laser light beams.

Fraxel ® Laser

Fraxel ® uses fractionated laser light that precisely treats thousands of microscopic areas of skin, using pinpoint laser beams that penetrate beneath the skin’s surface to eliminate old, damaged skin cells. This method of resurfacing tiny areas while leaving bridges of untreated skin speeds recovery and lessens the amount of down-time.  Fraxel ® treatments stimulate  the body’s own natural healing process which replaces damaged skin with fresh, glowing, healthy skin.

How Fraxel works

Topical anesthesia is applied before the procedure and cold air is used on the treatment area during the procedure to minimize discomfort.  Your treatment provider may  also suggest prescribed medication to help you relax. After the treatment, most patients report a feeling similar to having gotten too much sun. It usually disappears after 1 to 3 hours. Side-effects may include minor itching, dry skin, peeling or flaking, and a bronzed skin appearance for a few days. You will want to use sunscreen of SPF 30 or higher and avoiding direct sun exposure for at least 3 months after your last treatment.

Fraxel for sun damage Generally a series of 4 to 5 treatments are recommended, although often you can see improvement after just one treatment.  The Changes Plastic Surgery & Spa nursing staff will recommend the correct type of laser treatment depending on your skin type, color and skin condition. Please keep in mind treatments need to be done consistently in order to achieve the maximum result.
