Laser Resurfacing is a great, non-invasive option. The new Fraxel Re: Stor Laser from Solta Medical is utilized to resurface the skin of the face, neck, chest, and hands. With this procedure, we create a dramatic improvement in the tone and texture of the skin. Not to mention the improved look of sun-damaged skin, smooth fine lines and wrinkles, reduced appearance of enlarged pores, and the reduction of acne and other scars.
The Fraxel Laser Procedure
Fraxel is an advanced laser treatment that delivers microscopic laser wounds to the skin in order to trigger its natural healing response. As the laser energy heats the skin, the production of collagen is stimulated. Over the course of time, you will notice a significant improvement in the look and feel of the skin.
We commonly used this technology to treat mild wrinkles and fine lines, dark spots, acne scarring, and uneven skin tone. The treatment typically takes just an hour depending on the areas treated and can be done in the office with light sedation and topical anesthesia.
The Recovery Process
More added benefits include significantly less recovery time than a traditional laser procedure. Skin heals in 4-5 days and the pinkness fades over a period of weeks when make-up can lighten the redness.
Dr. Chung routinely recommends SilkPeel Microdermabrasion with Dermal Infusion treatments to patients 10 days to two weeks after a Fraxel® treatment. These treatments are perfect adjuncts to laser skin repair and often mitigate any residual side effects like a “bronzed” appearance or peeling of the skin.
