Fraxel laser is the first fractional laser invented to treat certain skin conditions like acne scarring, sun damage to the skin, wrinkles, etc. The lasers target microscopic heat columns into the skin to treat the conditions while covering a wide range of skin. This allows for quicker treatment where the laser can treat large areas at once.
Fraxel lasers are widely chosen as laser treatment for the face and other areas owing to their effective outcome.
With the treatment requiring relatively lesser time and very little downtime, the treatment has rapidly become a popular choice of laser treatment for skin among people. Compared to most other cosmetic treatments, Fraxel laser treatment also comes with lower risks while offering amazing results.
THE CONDITIONS DEALT WITH LASER TREATMENT
Fraxel lasers have been used since their invention to treat a number of skin conditions. Some of the most common conditions that the Fraxel laser was invented to treat include:
- Acne scarring
- Surgical scars
- Traumatic scars
- Sun damage to the skin
Apart from these conditions, Fraxel lasers also help improve the texture and tone of the skin.
HOW DO FRAXEL LASER TREATMENTS WORK?
Fraxel laser treatments involve microscopic laser energy columns focused on the skin, covering a large area simultaneously. Rather than peeling off the outer layer of the skin, Fraxel lasers stimulate the production of new collagen through the heat directed into the skin.
Before the treatment begins, the skin is numbed using topical cream or other methods are used to lessen the anxiety of the patient to relieve any discomfort. While the heat columns are directed into the skin, a cooling machine is used to blow cold air over the treated area to reduce discomfort from the heat and to prevent excessive heat buildup in the skin.
The process involves consistent heat being passed over the area to be treated. The duration of the laser treatment, however, may differ, depending on the level of treatment.
WHO IS ELIGIBLE FOR A FRAXEL LASER TREATMENT?
For a Fraxel laser treatment to work effectively, one must have the right skin type. Since the treatment may not be suitable for every skin type, our doctors will first analyse your skin. The skin tone, texture, and other factors are vital factors in determining whether the treatment will be as effective and correct for you. A consultation will help the doctor determine your suitability and give you an idea of what to expect from the treatment.
If you are eligible for the treatment, the right wavelength will be chosen, keeping your skin condition in mind.
