Fraxel is notrecommended
Fraxel is notrecommended for redness, but workseventually on brown pigment and the above issues. A series of 2-4 treatments are performed, usually one every 3-4 weeks. The benefits of fractional laser treatments are achieved with little discomfort and minimal risk.Each treatment replaces about 15-20% of the sun damaged, scarred or wrinkled skin. It triggers the body's natural healing process accelerating the production of collagen and new, healthy skin cells. 1,000-2,000 microthermal zones per are created each centimeter squared. Skin feels smoother, looks less blotchy, and has a glow to it.
The results depend on what is clients’ issue that must be treated. Usually, collagen will continue to develop even up to 3-6 months after the last treatment.During the first 48 hours after treatment, skin may feel as though it is sunburned. Ice packs or frozen peas are used 5-10 minutes per hour for the first 5-6 hours after the treatment.
Your skin will look very red immediately after the treatment and will fade over the next 1-3 days. Usually you can go back to normal activities including work, with make-up, within 1-3 days (your doctor will estimate for you). Occasionally, the redness may take longer to resolve. Make-up can be worn to reduce the red on the next day only, SPF 30 creams are a must. Rarely, bruising may develop, which can take up to two weeks to resolve. Allow 2-3 weeks for weddings, reunions, family pictures and selfies etc just to be safe.
Within a few days after each treatment, a "bronzed" look to the skin is common, which can last 1-2 weeks. Your skin may flake and exfoliate a little. Using a special care moisturizer will help reduce the appearance of dry flakes. Remember, it will take several treatments to obtain optimal results.Gradual improvement occurs with each treatment.
