Fraxel Laser Treatment for Full Skin Resurfacing

Fractional lasers are one of the most significant innovations in the non-surgical skincare world, and they first hit the market in 2004. Here at Fiore Aesthetics, we use only the very best technology we can get our hands on, and that’s no exception with our laser-based treatments.

The Fraxel laser is a patented system that resurfaces skin with stimulative laser energy. The system gradually addresses a small number of cells at a time, leaving the peripheral tissue unaffected and undamaged, drastically reducing healing time. Unlike ablative laser treatments (which destroy the top layer of skin), the Fraxel laser goes deep into the skin and encourages safe and healthy cell revitalisation. Here are a few reasons why our patients at Fiore Aesthetics love this treatment for skin resurfacing.

Results that Really Last

Fractional laser treatment such as Fraxel is a gift that keeps giving to your skin. Even 3-6 months after treatment, your skin will still be reaping the benefits of treatment, generating collagen and elastin that will provide a solid progressive result. This innovative cosmetic procedure employs precise laser technology to target specific areas of the skin, effectively addressing issues such as fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, and uneven pigmentation.

By creating microscopic treatment zones, the laser stimulates the skin’s natural healing process, promoting the growth of new, healthier tissue. As a result, patients often experience smoother texture, improved skin tone, and reduced imperfections. Fractional laser treatment also boasts shorter recovery times compared to traditional laser procedures, making it a popular choice for individuals seeking noticeable rejuvenation with minimal downtime.

Treat Acne & Surgical Scars Effectively

As a treatment targeting the superficial levels of the skin, the fractional laser is well-suited to dealing with surgical and acne scars. The lasers work on a microscopic level and target the dermis with extreme precision. The beam is split into thousands of narrow channels of light, creating small holes through the skin’s surface. Once the healing starts, the new cells will lead to skin tightening and smoothing, eliminating signs of scarring.

  1. Wrinkles & Fine Lines: Fractional lasers can help to smooth out and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, particularly around the eyes, mouth, and forehead.
  2. Acne Scars: Fractional lasers work to stimulate collagen production and improve the texture of the skin, which can help minimize the appearance of acne scars.
  3. Sun Damage & Age Spots: These lasers can address uneven pigmentation caused by sun damage, including age spots and sunspots, leading to a more even skin tone.
  4. Stretch Marks: Fractional lasers can help fade the appearance of stretch marks by stimulating the growth of new, healthy skin cells.
  5. Surgical Scars: Whether from surgeries or injuries, fractional laser treatments can soften and fade the appearance of scars, making them less noticeable over time.
  6. Uneven Skin Texture: Fractional lasers can help improve skin texture by promoting the growth of new collagen and elastin, resulting in smoother and more youthful-looking skin.
  7. Enlarged Pores: These lasers can help reduce the size of enlarged pores, resulting in a smoother and more refined complexion.
  8. Melasma & Hyperpigmentation: Fractional lasers can target areas of hyperpigmentation and melasma, helping to even out the skin tone and reduce discoloration.
  9. Rosacea: While not a cure, fractional lasers can help manage the symptoms of rosacea by reducing redness and inflammation in affected areas.
  10. Skin Tightening: Fractional lasers stimulate collagen production, which can lead to improved skin elasticity and a subtle tightening effect.
  11. Dull or Lackluster Skin: These lasers can give the skin a revitalized and radiant appearance by promoting cell turnover and improving overall skin quality.

Excellent Photorejuvenation Powers

Photodamage is responsible for the majority of skin issues linked to ageing, not just causing wrinkles and lines but skin dryness, roughness, pebbling, pigmentation and age spots. The increased melanin production during UV damage accelerates skin ageing and threatens your collagen and elastin supplies.

Fortunately, fractional lasers address this problem head-on, aiding the body to replenish its stocks. Post-fractional laser treatment, your skin will look brighter, and more radiant and have noticeably less brown patching due to too much time in the sun.

Non-Invasive Processes or Recovery Time

As a non-ablative treatment, Fraxel won’t leave you with any skin damage, open wounds, scarring, or at risk of infections. After treatment, we suggest taking it easy for the remainder of the day, as you may experience some skin flaking and swelling (please remember that this isn’t skin damage, but simply your skin tissue leaving the surface as the new skin starts to come through). The majority of our patients return to work the day after their treatment.

For patients who aren’t keen on needles, treatments like laser resurfacing (and HIFU) provide an alternative for combatting skin ageing, photodamage, and skin scarring.
