You can’t stop time from marching on. The years will continue to fly by. As they do, they will leave their mark on your skin. Due to exposure to the environment and the sun, you will start to see wear and tear on your skin. As collagen is destroyed, your face begins to lose its plumpness. Lines begin to appear, whether they form a fine web or deep craters. Age spots and other discolorations are also par for the course as you age until your face loses its healthy glow.
Lifestyle choices, such as a healthy diet, plenty of hydration, excellent skin care, and avoidance of smoking, can have a positive impact on your skin’s health. Unfortunately, you can’t stop the aging process from happening. When you are looking for a way to rejuvenate your skin, our Fraxel® Re:pair Laser can give you the results you want.
What Does the Fraxel® Re:pair Laser Do?
The Fraxel® Re:pair Laser uses tiny beams of laser light that create holes in the skin, triggering the body’s production of collagen. It’s a non-invasive procedure that involves resurfacing of the skin. Unlike laser equipment that was used in the past, the Fraxel® Re:pair Laser is considered a true breakthrough because it does not damage the top layer of the skin. You don’t have to worry about downtime or the complications that were common with traditional lasers.
Previous rejuvenation and resurfacing techniques involved using intense heat that had an ablative effect, resulting in a prolonged recovery period after treatment. With the Fraxel® Re:pair Laser, you’ll get the same results, but your treatment will be non-ablative. That means minimal discomfort and a speedy recovery. Expect to come in once or twice and you’ll be done. With only four days for recovery, you will soon be able to enjoy your rejuvenated skin.
What Can I Expect After the Procedure?
Immediately after treatment, you may experience redness and swelling. Skin flaking or crusting is possible as well. Follow after care instructions to ensure you help your skin to heal after your procedure. The Fraxel® Re:pair laser will make your body go to work for you. As collagen production kicks in, you will enjoy the appearance of younger, healthier skin that is firmer and glowing. Lines are visibly reduced, and discolorations will be erased, leaving you with skin that is more uniform in color. You’ll also be able to erase scars that have been left by acne and damage from the sun’s UV rays, including a pre-cancerous skin condition known as Actinic Keratosis.
Who is a Good Candidate for Fraxel® Re:pair Laser Rejuvenation?
The Fraxel® Re:pair Laser Rejuvenation procedure is recommended for you if you are in good health and you are dealing with damage to your skin from the environment, whether it is from exposure to the sun, wind, or dry conditions. If you want to get rid of age spots, discolorations, and fine lines, this is a non-surgical alternative that is highly effective.
