Inching Toward Perfection

Fraxel for The Body

If you’ve ever altered an image in Photoshop, you know what it’s like to work pixel by pixel to make something look better. You focus all your efforts on what needs to be corrected while leaving all the good stuff unchanged. Wouldn’t it be great if a skin rejuvenating laser worked the same way? Fraxel Laser is that laser. Its very nature makes it perfect for treating delicate skin areas such as the neck, chest, arms and hands – in addition to the face.

Fraxel for Decolletage

The Magic of Fraxel Laser

Ever wished for a Photoshop-like tool for your skin? Something that could meticulously work on individual imperfections without affecting the rest of your complexion? Well, that’s not a fantasy anymore. Fraxel Laser is that real-life tool. Uniquely designed, this laser therapy is perfect for treating delicate skin areas such as the neck, chest, arms, and hands, besides facial skin, enabling a comprehensive rejuvenation process.

Targeting Imperfections, Preserving the Good

Fraxel laser treatment is your indispensable ally in improving your skin’s appearance. It is carefully calibrated to treat only a fraction of your skin at a time. How does it do this? By deploying thousands of tiny laser beams that target and treat microscopic zones, zeroing in solely on skin imperfections while leaving the surrounding tissue untouched. This ‘fractional’ approach significantly reduces recovery periods compared to more aggressive, ablative lasers. With Fraxel, there are no more weeks spent hiding under wide-brimmed hats. Healthy tissue remains untouched, allowing skin to heal much faster.

How Fraxel Works

Fraxel operates from the outside in, with a precision akin to an artist. It directs light energy below the skin’s surface, which stimulates natural collagen reserves that, in turn, rejuvenate skin cells. What this means for you is that imperfections like fine lines, visible photo aging, wrinkles, scarring, and age spots start to soften or even fade away. Depending on the scope of the targeted areas, treatments can last anywhere from 15 to 45 minutes, with as many as five sessions possibly needed for optimal results. Patients liken the treatment to a “prickling” sensation, reporting mild sunburn-like effects in its aftermath. However, within 1-3 weeks, your body’s remarkable healing ability steps up to create new, healthy, and tighter tissue.

Fraxel Laser: The Solution for Sunspots and Fine Lines

Are sun spots and fine lines marring your décolletage, arms, or hands? Are these blemishes causing you unnecessary distress? Consider Fraxel laser treatment. Imagine stepping out confidently in scoop-necked tops, untroubled by skin imperfections. Fraxel is excellent at banishing these bothers, effectively reducing their appearance or even eliminating them. Fraxel laser is a remarkable invention in skin care technology. It’s safe, reliable, and extremely effective. For those who appreciate the gentler nature of non-ablative lasers but yearn for the definitive effectiveness of ablative ones, Fraxel Laser effectively bridges the gap, delivering on both counts.
