Non-Surgical Skin Tightening: Fraxel®

Posted October 27, 2016 in Facelift, Fraxel®, Laser Procedures

The skin reveals a lot about a person, especially their age and their daily habits. Over time, the skin begins to mature and develop superficial signs of aging. Fine lines, wrinkles, and age spots just don’t seem to go away with at-home treatments, such as expensive moisturizers and creams. Both men and women find themselves examining their skin in the mirror, wishing there was some way they could refresh their appearance to feel and look younger.

Many have thought about extensive procedures such as facelift surgery to achieve their facial rejuvenation goals; however, the long recovery and anesthesia can be somewhat daunting. Fraxel® is a non-surgical treatment that uses fractional CO₂ laser technology to target fine lines, wrinkles, and deep frown lines.

The high demand for non-surgical skin tightening procedures has caused laser treatments to populate the plastic surgery market. Many people who lead busy lives and prefer more instant gratification would likely benefit from laser procedures such as Fraxel®. CO₂ laser treatments offer patients gratifying results with minimal downtime and no scarring. Fraxel® uses light energy to stimulate the skin’s natural collagen, rejuvenating the skin cells below the surface to help smooth the creases and pockets that cause wrinkles and scars.

Fraxel® Can Target:

  • Fine lines
  • Wrinkles
  • Surface scarring
  • Pigmentation
  • Sun damage
  • Age spots

Fraxel® Candidates

Fraxel® is a non-invasive and clinically proven safe procedure for treating facial aging. The best candidates are those who want beautiful, natural-looking results without surgery. It is important that patients do not have any serious medical conditions, are non-smokers, and are realistic in their expectations.

Typically, patients who already practice a healthy lifestyle will benefit the most from the treatment. Although laser procedures are effective in removing facial flaws and skin imperfections, the natural aging process and the sun can cause the redevelopment of fine lines, wrinkles, and age spots. Maintaining a regular skin care regimen and undergoing repeat laser treatments can help to ensure lasting results.
