FRAXELDo not miss this video on the amazing Fraxel as explained by Dermatologist Dr. Amanda Lloyd at Skin & Vein Institute in Encinitas, CA
The science of FraxelFraxel is a high-intensity erbium glass fractionated laser. That means a precisely focused beam of light is broken into thousands of microscopic channels. The energy penetrating the skin in each of these treatment channels heats the damaged skin while leaving the surrounding cells unharmed. The heat produced kindles natural production of new collagen,which results in rejuvenated skin.
When Fraxel is laser of choiceHowever, each device is best-suited for a few particular applications. As a member of the American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery, Dr. Lloyd is well-versed in these intricacies. Her practice is equipped with a full range of laser technologies to ensure the most appropriate treatment for each condition.
Dr. Lloyd marshals the power of Fraxel for:
- Correction of severe sun damage.
- Mottled pigmentation, including freckles.
- Moderate wrinkles.
- Lax skin.
- Acne and other superficial scarring.
Benefits of FraxelMost patients get results with just one to two treatments. Because each column of light energy is about one-tenth the diameter of a hair, healing time is fast, one to four days. Risk of complications is very low because the skin is never broken.
Fraxel laser resurfacing is a great choice to replace damaged tissue with healthy, younger-looking skin. It can be a sole solution, or used in combination with other rejuvenation therapies and a customized daily skin care regimen, for a radiant complexion.
