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.

Enjoy a more radiant you with this nonsurgical skin resurfacing treatment.

Just because we are all getting older doesn’t mean we have to look our age. There are wrinklesways to improve the radiance and texture of aging skin that may be affected by common issues such as acne scars or sun damage. If you want to get a younger appearance but you don’t want to turn to cosmetic surgery in order to get results, then you’ll want to talk to our Mt. Arlington, Morristown, and Bridgewater, New Jersey, dermatologists about whether Fraxel laser treatment is right for you.
 

What is Fraxel?

Fraxel is a fractional skin resurfacing treatment that improves the overall texture and tone of your skin while targeting a variety of common imperfections including,

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Dull skin
  • Superficial scars
  • Sun damage
  • Hyperpigmentation (e.g. age spots; sun spots; melasma)
  • Actinic keratosis (Scaly growths that are the result of sun exposure)

 

How does Fraxel work?

When the Fraxel laser is directed over your skin it will penetrate into the deeper layers of tissue in order to stimulate the production of collagen, which helps keep skin supple and firm. The fractional laser is extremely precise, only targeting the damaged skin while leaving healthy tissue untouched, which also means a faster recovery period.
 

Will it hurt?

Some patients report a warming sensation during treatment; however, our skin doctor will apply a topical numbing gel over the area prior to treatment. Cold air will also be directed over the treated areas during your treatment. After treatment, your skin may feel like it’s been sunburned, but this should only last a couple of hours.
 

How many treatments will I need?

This will depend on the type and severity of skin problems you want to treat with Fraxel; however, it’s often recommended that you get anywhere from 1 to 5 treatment sessions performed about 2-4 weeks apart. In some cases, you may need to wait longer between treatment sessions. The treatment sessions can between 15-45 minutes.
 

When will I see my results?

Another benefit of Fraxel is that you will see results immediately and results will continue to improve within 2-3 months. It will take a couple of months for the body to produce enough collagen to improve the tone and texture of your skin.
