Fraxel (Resurfacing Fractional CO2)
Fraxel Resurfacing Fractional CO2 treatment is a harmless and non-invasive procedure that brings back a youthful glow while letting you feel rejuvenated in minutes. It removes years from your face by stimulating the layers of the skin to produce skin cells and getting rid of the old cells. Dr. Pascual uses the latest revolution in Fraxel treatment, and you can contact her clinic in Miami to book your complimentary consultation.
Fraxel is the best treatment for deep scars, fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage spots, and even for improving skin tone and texture. What makes Fraxel Resurfacing even more remarkable is that results are noticeable after the first treatment.
Fraxel Resurfacing Fractional CO2 Treatment Procedure
The kind of Fraxel treatment done to each patient varies and the doctor must take in account to what type of skin you have to determine different kinds of applications the patient needs. Fraxel Resurfacing Fractional CO2 treatment works by penetrating the skin with a laser for collagen production. It synthesizes collagen production to even out and rejuvenate the skin. It penetrates the deeper layers of the skin, making certain that the topmost layer of the skin are left unharmed. This enables the patient to have a minimal recovery period. What is even better is that each session takes only about an hour depending on the extent of your skin problem.
How many Fraxel treatments do I need to undergo before I see results?
Skin tightening will be felt right after a single session, but for best results, about 3 to 6 sessions are needed to achieve the maximum visible results.
How will I know what kind of Fraxel Resurfacing Fractional CO2 treatment is best for me?
Consultation with Dr. Pascual prior to having the Fraxel Resurfacing Fractional CO2 treatment will be done to ensure that the Fraxel Resurfacing Fractional CO2 treatment you will be receiving is suited to you. There are different ranges of Fraxel from deep surgical scars to maintaining your healthy beautiful glow; each Fraxel Resurfacing Fractional CO2 treatment will be suited to your needs to achieve that flawless appearance.
How long is the recovery period and what are the restrictions after having the treatment?
For the reason that Fraxel Resurfacing Fractional CO2 treatment only penetrates the deeper layer of the skin leaving the exposed layer unharmed, the recovery period is very short. Most patients who have had the Fraxel Resurfacing Fractional CO2 treatment return to work the following day after the procedure. Still, it is best if the treated area of your body is shielded from the sun and other environmental elements for a couple of days following the treatment. In addition, since the Fraxel Resurfacing Fractional CO2 treatment is non-invasive, there is no down time, and patients may resume their daily activities following the procedure.
