Most of us wear the signs of aging, stress and fatigue in the form of fine lines and wrinkles, acne scarring, pigmentation, age spots and sun damage. But fortunately the Fraxel Restore laser is available at our Beverly Hills med spa to deliver incredible anti-aging results.
Fraxel Restore laser is a proven, non-invasive breakthrough anti-aging laser treatment not only reverses skin imperfections caused by aging, but also renews the skin's surface, restoring your youthful glow. After Fraxel Laser Treatment, skin generally feels softer, looks smoother and tighter, and pores appear smaller. One of the best advantages? Excellent results with minimal downtime.
Fraxel laser addresses and reduces the appearance of many skin problems, including:
Fraxel is an advanced laser technology, but how the treatment works is simple. Fraxel delivers millions of tiny points of heat energy below the skin's surface triggering the body to produce collagen and elastin (the wonder substances that keep skin looking young and fresh) without damaging the skin's surface – so you heal quickly with little to no down time. For proper results, we recommend four treatments, one a month.
We'll apply a topical numbing cream 2 hours before treatment (or you may choose to apply the cream at home, in advance). We remove the numbing cream, clean the skin and place goggles over the eyes. The actual treatment consists of running the laser treatment head over the skin several times until the proper amount of energy has been delivered. You'll feel the skin become warm and when needed you can direct a cool stream of air to the treated areas. Treatment time ranges from 45 minutes to 1 hour, depending on the number of areas treated.
Fraxel Restore works with the natural rejuvenation process of the skin, so most patients begin seeing results from their anti-aging laser treatment after the third treatment, and you'll continue to see results for up to a year after your final fraxel laser treatment. (We call it the gift that keeps on giving!) Every patient's circumstance is different, but many enjoy results lasting for years.
Expect swelling and redness; swelling usually lasts two to four days, this usually peaks on the day after your Fraxel laser procedure, especially around the eyes. If you are swollen, sleep with your head elevated the first night. Apply cool compresses for 24-48 hours (washcloths soaked in ice water, ice packs, frozen gel masks, etc.) if needed.
Try to avoid salt and alcohol for the first 24 hours- this will help reduce swelling.
Redness - can be covered up with makeup immediately after treatment if so desired; redness can remain for up to one week.
Dry skin - this procedure tends to cause the skin to flake and feel dry- this is normal and should resolve within a week.
To optimize results, use SPF 50+ and for the first 3 weeks after treatment, protect yourself from direct sun exposure with a wide-brimmed hat if you expect to be in the sun.
