About Fraxel Laser Acne Scarring Treatment
Using an exclusive technology known as the Fraxel laser, these treatments work by stimulating the skin into the regeneration process. The lasers help boost collagen production, going deep into every pore and helping rebuild new, firm skin cells. Creating resilient cells is just one part of healing acne scars permanently.
The secret to how Fraxel laser treatments work for acne scars lies within the 1550 wavelength laser. The non-ablative beams are able to improve overall skin tone and texture in a single treatment. Using this rare type of laser beam wavelength allows practitioners to remove thick scar tissue and stimulate collagen production — at the same time.
How to Prepare for Fraxel Laser Treatment?
Before your appointment, you should do your everyday skincare routine with a few changes. Limit the number of exfoliation body scrubs, reduce the use of harsh cleansers, and only rinse your face with warm water and a gentle soap before the appointment. Pat your face dry with a soft, clean cloth and allow the skin specialist to take care of your skin with the Fraxel laser treatment preparation cleansing routine.
What to Expect From a Fraxel Laser Treatment?
Many people notice smoother skin after just one Fraxel laser treatment. Generally, permanent results require between 4 to 6 treatment sessions, at a rate of one appointment per month. Most people do not report any type of downtime and are able to return to their regular routine 1 to 2 days after the treatment.
After the procedure, most people do not notice any Fraxel laser treatment side effects besides some redness and swelling. For this reason, it is recommended that patients avoid direct sunlight for at least 2 days after a Fraxel laser session.
