Over time, your skin may show signs of aging, such as wrinkles, sun spots, and age spots. Luckily, your dermatologists at Affiliated Dermatologists in Morristown, Mt. Arlington, and Bridgewater, NJ, can help! Fraxel laser treatment can help treat your damaged skin and leave you looking young and revitalized.
What is Fraxel Laser Treatment?
Fraxel laser treatment uses patented technology to treat and target damaged skin with microscopic lasers that help penetrate deep into the skin. This process helps stimulate your body’s natural healing process and can help replace dark, damaged skin with fresh, new skin.
What Results Can I Expect With Fraxel Laser Treatment?
Depending on what you’re trying to target, you can usually expect satisfying results. There should be a significant reduction in problems such as wrinkles, brown spots, and rough textures after two sessions, however, it varies for each person. Usually, after about five treatments, you should see optimal results in all issues, even scarring, which is typically very difficult to combat. Overall, it’s very likely that you should expect your skin to look brighter, as well as feel softer and healthier. Your results usually are immediate and will continue progressing over time.
After treatments, it’s important to continue caring for your skin by protecting your skin against things such as sun damage by using sunscreen. Your dermatologists in Morristown, Mt. Arlington, and Bridgewater, NJ, will also discuss a skincare regimen that is very vital and necessary to follow so that you can guarantee the best results possible.

What is a chemical peel?
A chemical peel is a skincare treatment that usually introduces safe, low-risk acids to the skin to resurface the skin to brighten, even and soften the complexion. There are several kinds of chemical peels:
You or your dermatologist applies alpha-hydroxy or beta-hydroxy acid to the area. This acid breaks down the top layer of the epidermis and removes any skin cells that may contribute to a dull complexion or a tired appearance.
Benefits: This type of peel is known as a “lunchtime peel” -- known to be quick enough to get during your lunch hour at work.
Medium Layer Peel
To treat further into the skin and remove freckles and lines, your dermatologist will administer stronger actives like glycolic or trichloroacetic acid.
Benefits: This kind of peel handles all the skin concerns that the superficial peel addressed, but this treatment moves into the epidermis and reaches the dermis of the skin.
Deep Dermis Peel
With this type of peel trichloroacetic acid or phenol is applied to the skin. Because these are very potent chemicals, it is sure to encourage cellular turnover and banish dead skin cells that refuse to slough off.
Benefit: This treatment resurfaces deeper lines, age spots, and freckles. The procedure dramatically changes the way the face looks.
What are the other benefits of a chemical peel?
- A more toned skin color that is even and does not look as blotchy
- Skin that looks brighter in appearance
- A face that is softer to the touch
