We are introducing yet another laser treatment here at Abbracci Med Spa, the Cynosure Emerge Fractional Laser (aka Fraxel), and we are so excited about the results we’ve been seeing.
The Fraxel Laser treatment is a non-invasive laser treatment that smooths the skin and reduces unwanted signs of aging, including wrinkles around the eyes and mouth, acne scars, and stretch marks, with minimal downtime.
This laser treatment uses light energy heat to refresh the skin by stimulating collagen and elastin production, which plumps up deep wrinkles and fades scars.
Fraxel Laser technology can be used for:
- Wrinkles around the eyes
- Crow’s feet
- Wrinkles around the mouth
- Frown lines
- Vertical lip lines
- Facial wrinkles
- Acne Scars
- Sun damage
- Stretch marks (caused by weight loss or pregnancy)
We begin the treatment with a topical anesthetic, much like with IPL, and the Fraxel Laser device is used in the area(s) to be treated and generally takes 15-30 minutes, depending on the area. The sensation is similar to IPL, like a rubber band snapping against the skin or a light burning feeling. There is sometimes some mild skin redness, but no functional downtime – you can resume normal activities and go to work the next day. It is absolutely imperative that you protect your skin post-treatment with a broad spectrum SPF product, but you’re probably doing that every day anyway, right? 😉
Since the treatment is dependent on the regeneration of collagen & elastin, improvements are gradual, but you can expect to notice a decrease in brown spots, sun damage and wrinkles resulting in a smoother, more even skin tone within a week. A series of 3 treatments is usually recommended for desired results, about 4-6 weeks apart.
We are combining this treatment with IPL, which is one of our most popular skin rejuvenation treatments. IPL is perfect to help permanently remove hyperpigmentation and the Fraxel Laser treatment will help with fine lines. Both treatments work to help stimulate collagen production and lessen the effects of visible signs of aging. With the addition of the IPL, you can expect some peppering of skin in the days following, but this can usually be camouflaged easily with concealer.
