Over the past few years, Fraxel laser treatment has become one of the most popular non-invasive laser skin rejuevenation treatments. Primarily, this comes down to the fact Fraxel requires far less down time than other, more aggressive laser treatments, while still delivering excellent results.
But what does Fraxel laser do exactly—and why is everyone so obsessed?
The idea behind Fraxel lasers is to deeply penetrate dermal tissue in a specific pixel-like pattern, leaving behind healthy tissue surrounding the tiny wounds. Fraxel improves the skin’s texture, tone and clarity by encouraging it to repair itself. Along with anti-ageing, it can be used to treat pigmentation, discolouration, freckles, sun spots, age spots, uneven skin tone and acne scarring.
Most of the times, it used for wrinkle and brown spot removal. Since it is a healing treatment. Along with that it also breaks up melanin. Melanin is responsible for the brown spots. So, this all-rounder treatment is purposeful. It is very useful for removing wrinkles in sensitive areas. Much can go wrong using other wrinkle removal methods. For instance, wrinkle around the eyes, a very sensitive part of the face.
Reports have shown the damage to eyes using additional wrinkle removing techniques. With Fraxel laser, it’s quite the opposite. A careful treatment of wrinkle removal around the eyes is effective. It is also danger free. Forcing the cells to regenerate. This makes the muscles responsible for the wrinkle to produce again. Instead of filling the wrinkle with chemicals, as with other treatments. Fraxel heals them in a cosmetical better manner. Quite natural, the skin restores its wrinkle-free shape.
