It happens to everyone: One day you look in the mirror and realize you look older than you feel. Perhaps, it’s wrinkled. Maybe it’s age spots. Or you might just be unhappy with the dullness of your skin these days. The worst of it is that you still feel young and energetic inside — you know you have the potential to look younger, too.
That’s how Fraxel® can help: It can tap into your body’s natural potential to rejuvenate the appearance of your skin. It can reduce many common signs of aging, as well as signs of previous damage like acne or surgical scars. If you are looking to enjoy a more youthful and healthier appearance, Dr. Michelle Reyes and health care professionals at The Med Spot in Woodland Hills can help. Since 1997, she has been helping people in the Calabasas area enjoy a better life, and she can help you know whether Fraxel® or another laser skin rejuvenation technique can work for you.
Fraxel® encourages the body’s natural healing mechanisms to address a broad range of symptoms of skin aging and damage. Fraxel® has proven to be effective on:
Because the treatment is working on your skin, these will all be treated at the skin level. How much improvement you might see of each depends on the extent of your condition and the causes.
Expect to see noticeable improvement across the treated area. You should experience improvement to multiple concerns at the same time. This makes it easy to achieve good rejuvenation and a natural appearance.
Fraxel® is also effective on the hands. With Fraxel® treatment, you can deal with the age spots and dull skin that can make your hands a giveaway of your age.
As we get older, the natural process of replacing our skin slows down. We often look older in part because our skin is older. Skin accumulates more damage from the sun and environmental toxins, and it’s aging at a rate greater than in the past. It also has fewer important components like collagen, so it isn’t as strong and elastic.
The body still has the potential to produce skin cells that have more youthful characteristics. One way to get it to produce skin cells with youthful components is to trigger a healing response. In the past, people often did this with a peel or ablative treatment that removed the outer layers of skin. This worked, but it could be painful and required a long healing period.
Fraxel® can achieve similar results without removing the outer layers of your skin. Instead, it creates tiny treatment wells that can tap into the healing potential of your skin without burning any skin away. This can trigger the healing response, but because your skin isn’t removed, healing happens faster, and you don’t have to worry about the same risks of infection, discomfort, and other complications.
Fraxel® has revolutionized the laser skin rejuvenation industry. That’s because fractional laser treatment offers so many benefits. With Fraxel® treatment, you can enjoy:
One of the benefits of Fraxel® is that it’s capable of treating a wide range of skin concerns at the same time with a single procedure. Since the procedure is non-invasive, there is little time required for recovery, although people should take time to encourage proper healing. There’s little discomfort linked to Fraxel® treatment, either during the procedure or during recovery.
People also like Fraxel® because the results come from your natural healing. Although they’re noticeable, they look natural. People might ask your secret but won’t assume you’ve had work done. There is some permanent effect of Fraxel® treatment, but how long you notice visible results depends on your condition. For acne and surgical scars, you might see long-lasting results. With age spots, wrinkles, and similar concerns, visible results tend to be long-lasting — a year or more — and you can extend these results using touch-ups with Clear + Brilliant®.
Fraxel® is one great tool to achieve and maintain a more youthful appearance. However, the tool depends on the skill of the user, so it’s important to choose your doctor carefully when looking for rejuvenation treatment.
