Fraxel Turns Back The Clock
Life experiences have a way of etching themselves onto our faces leaving our skin less than perfect. Time, heredity and gravity work together creating fine lines and wrinkles.
Overexposure to the sun, environmental pollutants and lifestyle choices can also act to significantly accelerate the development of these natural signs of aging. Fractional laser skin resurfacing is an advanced treatment that can minimize the impact of all these negative factors and take years off of your appearance.
What are Fractional Lasers?
Fractional laser therapy uses a revolutionary technology in which thousands of microscopic laser ‘columns’ treat small areas of the skin at a time. Superior to other resurfacing procedures such as microdermabrasion and chemical peels, it treats only specific areas or ‘fractions’ of damaged skin leaving the surrounding area intact. These fractions allow the skin to recover rapidly with new, fresh skin.
Results are progressive: unlike the immediate drastic change produced by surgery, fractional laser treatment results appear over a period of time. In addition, there is limited downtime after treatment and few side effects.
What Fraxel Treats
Pacific Dermaesthetics provides fractional laser skin treatments in Vancouver with the Fraxel® laser to correct many dermatologic and cosmetic skin conditions. Some of the most common skin concerns that Fraxel lasers treat include:
- Wrinkles and fine lines
- Uneven skin texture
- Enlarged pores
- Acne scars
- Pigmented lesions – such as sun or age spots
- Uneven pigmentation – such as melasma
- Surgical scars
- Actinic keratosis
Fraxel technology has quickly become the industry standard for cosmetic skin rejuvenation and laser skin resurfacing. Fraxel lasers have a strong track record of solid clinical research behind them. They have received multiple FDA and CSA clearances and have been found safe and effective in treating many areas of the face and body.
Fraxel Laser Treatment Types
Fraxel has several different treatments to suit your lifestyle. Each type varies in aggressiveness, downtime and the number of sessions needed. Our clinic in Vancouver offers three Fraxel lasers providing the ultimate in customizing your treatment: Fraxel re:store DUAL® (which has two laser wavelengths, 1927 and 1550) and Fraxel re:pair® (a CO2 laser). A consultation with one of our cosmetic dermatologists will help determine which one is right for you.
