Our Fraxel winter special’s the perfect opportunity to create beautiful skin anywhere on your body. Fraxel’s ideal for face, neck and chest as well as those forgotten areas such as hands and forearms.
Fraxel is without doubt the best treatment for those with sun damaged, especially blotchy, freckly or pigmented skin, who also want to improve texture and tone. IPL’s may do a great job removing freckles and pigment, but they won’t achieve the textural improvement that s such a pronounce effect of Fraxel.
The addition of a new wavelength (1972nm) that concentrates energy into the upper layers of the skin means that the latest Fraxel can better treat pigmentation and other dyschromia on the entire body, with minimal discomfort and far superior results.
Fraxel is the only device specifically designed to restore a fraction of skin at a time without breaking the protective outer layer. Its unique mechanism of action allows for dramatic improvement in the skin without the more side effects and risks associated with traditional laser resurfacing. Fraxel is the most effective treatment for skin rejuvenation amongst the family of non-invasive laser treatments.
What is involved with Fraxel treatment?
You will be assessed by a doctor to ensure your skin’s suitability for Fraxel treatment.
Standardised clinical photographs of your skin will be taken so that we can record the improvements in your skin.
A numbing cream is applied to the areas to be treated for about 1 hour prior to treatment to ensure your comfort. Nitrous oxide, or laughing gas, is also available though rarely needed for Fraxel treatments.
Fraxel laser treatments are also always performed using a Zimmer cooler that blows chilled area across the treatment area. This both reduces discomfort and prevents unwanted heat energy build up in the skin.
Fraxel utilises a patented scanning hand piece that fires columns of laser light consistently into the skin in a grid pattern. 6-8 passes are performed across each area of skin to achieve the optimum result. Facial treatments are completed within 20-30 minutes.
After treatment the skin feels warm and looks pink. Over the next few days it will gradually become brown and dry, and will feel like sandpaper. By about day 4-5 this dry skin will shed, revealing underlying new skin with improved texture and tone.
