The Science behind Fraxel Lasers
Fraxel Laser produces thousands of tiny but deep columns of necrosis in your skin, known as microthermal treatment zones (MTXs). This treatment eliminates old epidermal pigmented cells. It also penetrates deep into the dermis. Just as important, though, are the areas of skin the Fraxel laser leaves untouched. For every microthermal zone the laser targets and treats intensively, it leaves the surrounding tissue unaffected and intact. This "fractional" treatment allows the skin to heal much faster than if the entire area were treated at once using the body's natural healing process to create new, healthy tighter tissue to replace skin imperfections.
Fraxel 1927 Laser Treatment can be performed using only topical anesthesia in most cases. If you are having a significant area of your skin treated, Dr. Mohan will develop a pain management approach to maximize your comfort during the procedure.
The treatment area will be thoroughly washed prior to the procedure. Fraxel Laser is applied to the whole face, or whichever area you are having treated, giving special attention to the areas of interest, by a certified Fraxel Laser Technician. The next 3-6 months you will continue to see improvements as your skin continues to create new collagen. Results are long lasting depending on your lifestyle, age, skin condition and skin care regimen.
This process of skin repair involves: Redness and swelling for a day or two.
Bronzing: Your skin will have a bronze appearance that lasts anywhere from 3 to 14 days, depending on your treatment level.
Flaking: Your skin will naturally and vigorously exfoliate as new skin replaces dead tissue. Flaking is similar to that of minor sunburn, but without the associated pain. Use of a moisturizer will mask the appearance of flaking.
Sunscreen: Be sure to use mineral sunscreen at least twice daily to protect your skin from sun exposure during both the healing phase and for several months after treatment. For added protection, use wide-brimmed hats when in direct sunlight.
There is simply nothing else like it for improving the appearance of your skin and giving you a renewed sense of confidence. Until now, two varieties of laser treatment have been available for cosmetic enhancement-ablative and nonablative. Ablative, which literally means to vaporize at a very high temperature, is very effective at destroying unwanted tissue but has significant side-effects and requires a lengthy healing period. Non-ablative, on the other hand, has very few side-effects and requires almost no healing time, but involves numerous treatments over many months to achieve only modest results.
