Fraxel skin resurfacing – your complete guide
Suffer from pigmentation, discolouration or frown lines? Fraxel skin resurfacing helps replace damaged cells.
What is fraxel skin resurfacing?
Fraxel promises to smooth skin tone, soften scars and frown lines and reduce discolouration and pigmentation.
The resurfacing laser creates thousands of microscopic treatment zones, inducing the skin’s natural healing process and replacing damaged cells with fresh, youthful-looking skin.
What to expect?
You will feel a hot prickling sensation before the area is cooled to relieve the discomfort. After the treatment, you may experience redness and swelling, but this diminishes over the next couple of days.
The skin will naturally bronze over the next week or two before flaking like sunburn and revealing fresher-looking skin.
How many treatments do you need?
An average of three to five treatments, spaced about two to four weeks apart, will help the skin gradually improve over the next six months.
