Fraxel® Laser

As you age and sun damage worsens, your skin can develop age spots, melasma, wrinkles, and other skin conditions that leave your skin looking dull, old, and coarse. Our cosmetic dermatology practice in Guelph and Burlington, Ontario, offers Fraxel laser skin treatments to address these issues. Fraxel laser therapy remains one of the most popular options for rejuvenating and repairing damaged skin to reveal new, healthier tissue.

What Does Fraxel Do?

Fraxel is a laser skin resurfacing treatment that diminishes imperfections such as wrinkles, fine lines, scarring, pigmentation issues, and more. Compared to many other laser procedures, Fraxel is gentler on the skin and requires less downtime. Its laser treats only a small fraction of your tissue at a time and leaves the surrounding skin unaffected, enabling quicker healing. Fraxel is safe for use on a variety of areas, including the face, neck, chest, and hands.

How Does Fraxel Work?

Fraxel laser treatments emit small, precise points of laser energy that penetrate the skin’s surface. This energy heats the skin and encourages your body to naturally produce more collagen. As the skin’s natural healing processes are activated, your body replaces old cells with fresh, healthy new skin.

How Soon Will I See Skin Resurfacing Results?

The first few hours after treatment, your skin will feel hot and you will likely experience some swelling; cool compresses and elevating your treatment area overnight can help. Your skin will continue to feel swollen and tender and may appear pink or red for a few days after treatment.

Your face will flake over the next few days—you can use lipid- or peptide-based moisturizer to smooth out your complexion. Fraxel can also be combined with PRP treatment to accelerate the replacement of damage with fresh skin cells. During the healing process, wear sunscreen SPF 30 or higher and avoid UV exposure. Your final look will continue to improve over the following 4 to 6 months as the deeper layers of skin continue to heal.

For Guelph patients interested in laser skin resurfacing treatments, Fraxel offers the perfect combination of real results and little recovery time. Request a consultation using our online form or call us at (888) 803-3762 to schedule your cosmetic dermatology appointment today.
