Fraxel laser for the body targets aging skin and sun damaged skin by zeroing in on the damaged tissue. The Fraxel Dual 1550/1927 laser creates microscopic columns far below the surface of the skin. Each column penetrates deep into the skin eliminating the damaged skin through the body’s own healing power.
As the body heals the microscopic “columns”, new collagen is formed creating healthy, unaffected tissue that is free of imperfections such as dark spots and sun damage. The new collagen also firms and plumps the skin offering a mild skin tighten effect. The new collagen also adds volume; smoothing out depressed areas of skin such as scars and stretch marks.
Fraxel laser treatments are effective only when performed in a series of sessions because each session treats 20 to 25 percent of the skin. Typically, 4 or 5 sessions, spaced 2-4 weeks apart are needed to achieve the desired result. Over the course of two or three months, new collagen begins to form, creating healthy, flawless and radiant skin.
In Pittsburgh, Fraxel Dual laser treatments are performed in our Shadyside, PA, Mt. Lebanon, PA and Wexford, PA locations.
