A smooth, beautiful and radiant skin can be achieved with Fraxel laser resurfacing. There are many reputable plastic surgeons who offer this new laser treatment to patients. This procedure has got an approval from the FDA. In this type of laser resurfacing, the process of natural healing in the body is activated. Any area of the body can be treated. This includes the face as well as delicate regions of the body such as the hands, chest and the neck. Fractional Photothermolysis is used in the procedure and with this, only a small portion of the skin is targeted at a time. The surrounding tissues are not at all affected. The process of natural healing works from the inside out and fresh tissue replaces the damaged tissue.
Why Opt for Fraxel laser treatment?
There are various ways of treating the skin that has started displaying the telltale signs of age. Several skin conditions such as wrinkles, fine lines, age spots and skin pigmentation that occur due to photoaging can be treated with Fraxel laser skin treatment. In Fraxel laser resurfacing, light energy is used that stimulates the production of natural collagen in the skin. The cells located below the surface of the skin are rejuvenated. The process also helps to level the creases and pockets that cause wrinkles.
The technique used in Fraxel laser treatment is non-invasive. A laser beam is used for the procedure. Only a fraction of the skin surface is targeted at a time. This process is similar to enhancing or altering a photographic image pixel by pixel. Most commonly, this treatment is used on the chest, neck and the hands. However, it can be used for treating any part of the body. Many people opt for this treatment for removing stretch marks and for dealing with Civatte, a condition in which the skin on the sides and front of the neck is affected. The procedure offers focused results because only problematic areas of the skin are targeted by the device. It is a clinically proven treatment and is an effective and safe way for reversing the signs of aging, appearing on the skin.
