Is the Fraxel Laser Skin Treatment Worth It?
Do you want to look younger and improve the overall appearance of your skin? Are you looking for better skin tone, texture and pigment? Then Fraxel Laser Skin treatment is the best choice. Fraxel laser skin treatment, is a non-invasive laser that is FDA approved to correct many of the signs of aging and reduces imperfections.
What Conditions Does Fraxel Treat?
Certified laser technicians use Fraxel to treat wrinkles, pigment, sun spots, fine lines, melasma and scars. Although Fraxel is largely used to treat cosmetic conditions, it can also cure serious skin conditions like actinic keratosis, a precancerous skin lesion resulting from sun damage. Lastly, Fraxel is an alternative to microdermabrasion and the chemical peel because it gently penetrates the skin to improve its texture, tightness and color.
Fraxel is known as an excellent treatment for acne scars. The laser increases the production of collagen deep within the skin as it removes damaged tissue. In contrast to other treatments, healthy skin remains intact with Fraxel treatments. The result is that the skin appears to be smoother, and you will not have to spend any time recovering from the treatment before you return to your normal activities.
Stretch marks are difficult to treat, but our certified laser technicians effectively use Fraxel to reduce the appearance of stretch marks anywhere on the body. After a couple of treatments with Fraxel, you may notice a 50 percent reduction in your stretch marks.
Are There Any Fraxel Side Effects?
The question that people tend to ask first is whether or not Fraxel has any side effects. The answer to this question will be different for each Fraxel procedure, but common side-effects include redness, sensitivity, mild swelling and flaking of the skin. These are a common, expected part of the healing process and only lasts between three and five days.
How Much Does Fraxel Cost?
The cost of Fraxel will vary depending on how many treatments you need. Most people only need one then follow up with their sister laser called the Clear & Brilliant. In Beverly Hills, the average Fraxel procedure is between $1300-1500 a treatment; at Lasky Aesthetics and Laser Center, we include a cooling mask and an LED light treatment to calm the skin and reduce swelling. You will work together with one of our licensed skin care experts to come up with a treatment plan that works for you and your needs.
