Rejuvenate and Tighten Skin with Fraxel® Laser Resurfacing
There’s a lot of upkeep when it comes to our skin. Wrinkles, scars, sunspots, and blotchiness are things that we’ll all have to deal with at some point. At Southeastern Dermatology in Lumberton, we offer Fraxel® skin resurfacing to help combat these many signs of aging. This non-surgical treatment offers great results with minimal downtime.
What Is Fraxel® Laser Skin Resurfacing?
Fraxel® Laser Skin Resurfacing is a special skin care treatment that targets flaws in the skin and smoothes and resurfaces them. Special laser technology goes deep within your pores to get to the root of skin problems like wrinkles, creases, acne pits and other scars. The procedure can even help with stretch marks and large surgical scars as well.
In basic terms, this technology is actually tricking your skin into resurfacing itself with brand new layers. It creates new cells that look younger, fresher, and more vibrant, while it sloughs off the old, dead cells.
Is This Procedure Safe?
Yes, this procedure is completely safe. Fraxel® Laser Skin Resurfacing is a treatment approved by the Food and Drug Administration. It is a non-invasive treatment, so there’s no going under the knife with local or general anesthetics, and you’ll be in and out of the office in a matter of hours. After the procedure, you can immediately resume your normal life as there is no need for a lengthy recovery period with this procedure.
What Can Be Treated With This Resurfacing Procedure?
Acne scars plague many people, and they often take years to go away on their own. Forget covering them up every day with makeup. You can simply make them disappear with this resurfacing treatment!
Stretch marks can often happen during pregnancy or another period of rapid weight gain. This treatment targets the damaged skin in these marks and evens them out.
Age spots and sunspots
As we get older, all that time we spent in the sun in our teens and twenties comes back to haunt us. However, it’s not a problem if you opt to clear up these annoying spots with Fraxel® Skin Resurfacing.
