Fast Facts About Fraxel

Stop spending your valuable time and money on countless cosmetics in an attempt to cover up hyperpigmentation, wrinkles and scars. Instead, consider a Fraxel procedure from Summit Skin and Vein Care of Lee’s Summit. Fraxel is an exciting technology that gives your skin new life, minimizing the appearance and effects of uneven coloration, scarring, fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage, and even actinic keratosis, a pre-cancerous condition. Here are some quick facts to help familiarize you with the procedure.

Smooth SkinWhat is Fraxel?

Fraxel uses fractional lasers to stimulate your body’s collagen, as well as resurface the top layer of your skin through a non-invasive procedure. The collagen then takes over, healing the skin for a beautiful, smooth finish. Scars from acne or chickenpox are minimized, as are age spots and sun damage. The result is a younger-looking, more confident you.

When Can I Expect to See Results?

Rejuvenated skin is usually apparent within one to three weeks of treatment. Most patients receive one to five, fifteen to forty-five minute procedures to achieve desired results.

Are There Any Side Effects?

As with any procedure, Fraxel treatment has the potential for side effects. Most are similar to a sunburn, with redness, swelling and crusting or scabbing, among others. The majority of patients report experiencing mild discomfort after receiving treatment.

How is Fraxel Different from Other Laser Treatments?

Fraxel combines two popular laser treatment technologies to get the best from both. This results in an optimally effective procedure with reduced downtime. Fraxel’s advanced technology is ideal for all levels of skin damage, from mild to severe.

Is Fraxel Right for Me?

The only way to know if Fraxel is right for you is to consult your physician at Summit Skin and Vein Care. Every individual is different, and your doctor will be able to give you a thorough examination to determine if Fraxel is a good choice for your hyperpigmentation or scarring.
