Using non-invasive laser technology, laser Fraxel skin resurfacing can eliminate a range of cosmetic concerns to enhance the health and overall appearance of the skin. Layton Aesthetic Plastic Surgery offers this treatment to patients living in Kerrville, Sugar Land, Houston, and the nearby areas of Texas.
What is Laser Fraxel Skin Resurfacing?
Laser Fraxel skin resurfacing uses non-invasive laser energy to correct a range of skin damage. The Fraxel system can be used to address these concerns from the surface or by delivering laser energy into the deeper layers of the skin. This versatility makes laser Fraxel skin resurfacing an effective solution for many skin types and cosmetic concerns, and for nearly any area of the body. By stimulating collagen production and exfoliating damaged skin, laser Fraxel resurfacing can address the following skin concerns:
- Age spots and sun damage
- Lines and wrinkles
- Uneven skin tone and texture
- Hyperpigmentation and discoloration
- Enlarged pores
How Much Does Laser Fraxel Skin Resurfacing Cost?
The cost of a laser Fraxel skin resurfacing treatment can vary depending on the number of areas being treated, as well as the extent of treatment necessary to deliver your desired results. During your consultation, Dr. Layton will be able to provide you with a treatment plan that matches your specific needs. At this point, we will be able to provide you with the exact cost of your treatment. We also offer financing services to help make this and other treatments more affordable.
What is the Laser Fraxel Skin Resurfacing Treatment Like?
The laser Fraxel skin resurfacing treatment will be customized depending on your unique needs and cosmetic concerns. Before the procedure, we will apply a topical anesthetic to the treatment area to minimize any discomfort. Then, we will use the Fraxel laser system to apply laser energy to the desired treatment areas. During this process, you may experience a warm sensation, but most patients find the treatment quite tolerable. The treatment can take anywhere between 30 minutes to upwards of an hour depending on the size and number of the areas being treated.
Is There Any Downtime After Laser Fraxel Skin Resurfacing?
After your Fraxel skin resurfacing treatment, you may notice that the skin is reddened or sensitive, much like a sunburn. For the first week or two after treatment, you will need to avoid excessive exposure to sunlight in order to prevent damage to the sensitive treatment areas. However, most side effects fade within a few days, and you should be able to return to most normal activities immediately after your treatment.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect from Laser Fraxel Skin Resurfacing?
You may notice some immediate results from your Fraxel skin resurfacing treatment, enjoying softer and brighter skin. However, more dramatic results will develop in the months following treatment as the skin heals and collagen production increases. We may recommend a series of treatment sessions in order for you to achieve optimal results, which might be anywhere from two to six sessions depending on the patient.
