Due to the aging process, the effects of the sun, the wind, and toxins in the atmosphere, our skin, the largest organ in our body starts taking a beating from the time we are born.
As time goes on the skin loses its smoothness, and fine lines begin to appear around the eyes and lips. Then deeper wrinkles start appearing as a result of collagen loss. Around this time, pigment discolouration sets in and the skin also develops facial redness.
Fraxel Laser Treatment is a non-surgical option for facial rejuvenation. Though our skin is a remarkable organ and has the ability to repair itself quite efficiently, facial rejuvenation procedures assist this natural process.
The procedure involves the use of the Fraxel laser which can produce thousands of tiny laser beams that can penetrate deep into the middle layer of the skin, remove damaged areas of the skin and induce the growth of fresh skin.
There is hardly any pain, just a prickling sensation. But the application of anaesthetic ointment before the actual procedure eliminates any feeling of discomfort.
An effective treatment regimen is 4-5 sessions, spaced about 4 weeks apart.
The procedure can help patients get a smoother, fresher looking skin with improved tone and structure, remove wrinkles around the eyes and lips and soften acne and surgical scars so that they are less visible.
The results are in most cases evident after the first Fraxel Laser treatment but optimal improvement is usually visible in about 2 to 3 months. However, post Fraxel Laser treatment care requires patients to keep their skin moisturized, avoid the sun and avoid any scratches to enable speedy healing.
