You’ve heard about it on Oprah and The View and read about in countless
magazines, but what is Fraxel and is it right for you?
We all know that over the years, our skin becomes damaged by unavoidable exposure to sun, air pollution, stress, fatigue and even by lifestyle choices such as smoking. All of it keeps you from looking as good on the outside as you feel on the inside. But why should you choose Fraxel Laser Treatment over plastic surgery or other procedures?
Fraxel Laser Treatment is a safe, non-invasive procedure that allows you to rediscover the fresh healthy skin of your youth.
- It improves your skins’ texture, tone and pore size.
- Erases unwanted brown spots
- Smoothes wrinkles around the eye
- Diminishes acne scars
- Rejuvenates your neck, chest and hands
All with minimal downtime.
Fraxel Laser Treatment is designed to target aging and damaged skin by creating microscopic “wounds” in the intended areas, penetrating well beneath the skins’ outermost layer. In this way, Fraxel Laser Treatments trigger the body’s own natural production of new collagen and skin cells. Healing occurs so quickly that there is little or no downtime for patients.
This FDA approved new technology has found a way to be very affective at destroying unwanted tissue just like the CO2 laser without the threat of significant side effects or the a lengthy healing period that the ablative lasers pose. Because it is a “fractional” laser, only a portion of the skins’ surface is treated during the procedure, thus leaving healthy tissue surrounding the areas treated. For this reason, most patients may return to work or their normal routine the next day and can apply makeup or shave. To achieve optimal results, most patients require a series of four treatments.
Why Should You Choose Eyecare Associates’ Doctors and Staff for Your Fraxel Laser Treatment?
Fraxel laser treatments are FDA approved to treat not only the sensitive areas around the eye but also the eyelids themselves. Our physicians are part of an elite group of ocular surgeons from across the nation who are highly skilled and trained to treat the periocular area.
As ophthalmic surgeons, our doctors have the experience and skill to successfully treat these sensitive areas safely and effectively. After all, who knows the anatomy of the eye better than an Ophthalmologist?
