Fraxel® Laser Treatment: The Perfect Solution for Repairing Summer Sun Damage

Fraxel® Laser Treatment: The Perfect Solution for Repairing Summer Sun Damage

Whether you’re a beach lover, tennis player, or hiker, outdoor enthusiasts often endure skin damage that makes them look older than they are and feel.

At Best Impression Med Spa in Blue Bell and Norristown, Pennsylvania, we offer the best-in-class products delivered with the utmost expertise. That’s why Robert Mirabile, MD, and Vivian M. Hsu, MD, and our team reccommendFraxel® laser treatment to undo sun damage and other signs of skin ware and tear, including fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, keratosis, hyperpigmentation, and uneven texture. 

How Fraxel Laser works

Fraxel laser sends laser energy deep into your skin’s dermis layer in countless microscopic columns. It stimulates collagen and elastin, the two essential proteins that give your skin its structure and resilience. 

One of the reasons your skin is showing its age is that your body dramatically slows down its production of elastin and collagen over time, making your skin look thinner, looser, and wrinkled. 

This treatment is especially ideal for diminishing scar tissue. As the laser energy triggers the flood of collagen, your skin naturally plumps up again, and your wrinkles smooth out.

Correcting sun damage and other pigmentation issues

Fraxel laser is also excellent for minimizing the appearance of brown spots and colored patches. This is accomplished through the laser system’s intense pulsed light, which penetrates your epidermis, targeting the clumps of pigment called melanin. It breaks up the cells and destroys them so your body can flush them away over the next few days, weeks, and months. The laser works wonders on erasing signs of rosacea, spider veins, and melasma too.

What to expect at your treatment session

Some clients experience slight but highly tolerable discomfort. Many liken the sensation to the feeling of a light rubber band snap against your skin.

After your treatment, your skin may feel a bit firmer and tighter, and you may also notice some redness that will fade away in a few hours. The real change takes place in the coming weeks. As your body amps up its natural production of collagen and elastin, and as your skin cells renew, you’ll start to look younger each time you look in the mirror. Dark spots disappear, scars fade and become less noticeable, and those lines and wrinkles vanish.
