Fraxel Re:pair for Safe and Effective Sun Damage Treatment
Fraxel Re:pair is an FDA-cleared fractional ablative laser that takes a different approach to treating skin than similar lasers. Rather than using its CO2 energy to completely remove full dermis tissue, it directs this powerful energy into micro-beams that create tiny channels within the complexion. These micro-channels spur the body to create more collagen while increasing cellular turnover, thushelping to produce newer skin with faded signs of sun damage.
Over time and with enough treatments, clients can expect to see significantly clearer skin, free from signs of sun damage like brown spots, age spots, wrinkles, and more!
The Fraxel Re:pair system can produce exciting results, and rather quickly too.Most clients may need about three to six Fraxel treatments to see significant results; however, those results are usually apparent about four weeks after the first procedure. Your Fraxel treatments may be scheduled about 4 to 6 weeks apart, which should allow enough time for your skin to fully heal before the next procedure is performed.
Results are long-lasting, but keep in mind that your newly treated skin will be sensitive to the sun’s UV rays. Get into the habit of applying sunscreen at the beginning of the day, so you can minimize any additional sun damage you may experience from here on out!
I had my 1st of three fraxel laser treatments 4 days ago. I was very apprehensive since I had heard that it could be painful. The nurses and medical staff were very accepting of my nervousness and answered all my questions concerning the procedure, which helped me to relax. Dr. Pilest was very gentle and watched my face for signs of discomfort. He would work around sensitive areas on my face when I showed signs of pain, coming back to those areas later for short bursts of laser. The staff made sure I was well informed concerning after care and what to expect. I have to say, one of the most professional offices I’ve ever seen. I’ve been a Registered Nurse for 30+ years… so I know of what I speak. Highly recommended!
