Fraxel Laser Resurfacing
Dr. Adi clinic
Although Dr. Adi’s clinics are well known for providing a multitude of facial cosmetic procedures, his Fraxel laser resurfacing treatments are perhaps the best in the industry. Dr. Adi’s clinics get to know their clients well and use the best possible procedures and treatments to bring out inner beauty.
What is Fraxel Laser Resurfacing?
Fraxel laser resurfacing is a cosmetic treatment that uses a patented Fraxel light source to send thousands of tiny beams of light to the surface of the skin. Fraxel lasers differ from traditional laser treatments because they target only a fraction of the skin—hence the Fraxel name—and leave a bigger percentage of healthy skin behind to aid in the healing process. Fraxel laser resurfacing is quick, virtually painless and has no lasting or harmful side effects.
How Fraxel Laser Resurfacing Works
Most of the time, the aging process is defined by the loss of collagen—the compound that keeps skin elastic. Collagen loss results in sagging and wrinkles, thereby making people look older. Fraxel laser resurfacing stimulates the production of collagen in the treated areas, resulting in the smoothing and inflation of the skin’s surface. Although it takes time for the success of the treatments to become visible, collagen production starts within moments of the finished treatment. It is a wonderful option for those who show significant aging or who have lost the glow their skin had at one time.
Healing and Treatment Duration Times
The usual recovery time after a Fraxel laser resurfacing treatment is between two and seven days, and clients are asked to avoid sunlight and harsh chemicals during this time frame as they may cause unnecessary irritation of the skin. The first positive results of the treatment may become visible in as little as one month, but it may take up to a total of six months before the peak results are achieved. This resurfacing is a very effective treatment, but due to its design, clients must schedule follow-up appointments on a regular basis to treat the skin that was left behind the first time. The average treatment duration is anywhere from two to five years depending mainly upon the client’s skin.
Fraxel Laser Resurfacing vs. Juvederm
Juvederm is an injectable filler that was originally designed to fill the ‘laugh lines’ or ‘parenthesis’ that are usually found on the sides of the mouth. Although many clients struggle with which treatment they should have, there is no reason why a client cannot enjoy the benefits of both. Juvederm is a filler, which means its primary purpose is to reduce the appearance of deeper lines and wrinkles instantaneously. Fraxel laser treatments, on the other hand, are designed to boost collagen production and may take time to work. The best way to enjoy both is to have the Fraxel laser resurfacing treatment completed before receiving Juvederm injections in order to prevent a reaction between the two.
Dr. Adi’s clinics are great resources for Fraxel laser resurfacing treatments. Although this treatment alone can produce some really wonderful results, combining it with other treatments—such as Juvederm—can create instant gratification that lasts a long, long time.
