A healthy, radiant complexion is what all women want. Hundreds of skin care products promise the moon, but they can’t get rid of creases and folds on your skin. Fraxel laser skin resurfacing can.
Fraxel is non-ablative, which sets it apart from most other laser treatments. Non-ablative laser treatments have little downtime, especially compared with ablative downtimes, because the laser targets the dermis layer under the epidermis, so there aren’t any wounds or inflammation on the epidermis.
Fraxel removes lines, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation spots by stimulating the dermis to produce collagen. Collagen is a protein in the body that is responsible for skin structure and support.
At K Plastic Surgery, we use the Fraxel re:store DUAL laser. This treatment is unique because it uses dual laser technology. The first laser targets superficial concerns such as pigmentation. The second laser targets issues that occur in the deeper layers of the skin, such as acne scarring and dynamic wrinkles.
The Fraxel re:store DUAL Laser treatment has been approved by the FDA for reducing or eliminating these specific problems:
- Acne scarring
- Periobital wrinkles (around the eyes)
- Surgical scarring
- Age spots
- Sun spots
The procedure takes around 30 minute, with a series of two to three treatments spaced out every six months recommended.
It is important to consult with a specialist to determine the method of treatment for you. Dr. Kayastha is a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon located in Albany, NY. Contact us at K Plastic Surgery to learn more about Fraxel and other laser skin resurfacing options.
