Fraxel laser skin rejuvenation for acne scars, sun damage, and more in Montclair, NJ
Our skin often tells the story of our lives. Whether you have acne scars, fine lines, and wrinkles due to aging, surgical scars, sun spots, hyperpigmentation, or other issues, the revolutionary Fraxel laser treatment can help erase these visible imperfections on your skin for a radiant, youthful complexion. At image Dermatology ® P.C. in Montclair, NJ, Dr. Jeanine Downie can treat nearly any area of the body and all skin tones with this customized skin rejuvenation therapy.
What sets Fraxel apart
Laser therapies for skin rejuvenation have been used for many years, but traditional lasers only emit one specific wavelength. In contrast, Fraxel uses non-ablative fractionation technology to break up the laser energy into many tiny columns of thermal energy that penetrate deep within the skin without harming the outer layers. Contrary to ablative lasers, Fraxel works by creating micro-injuries or small holes in the dermal skin layer beneath the outer epidermis. It triggers your body’s natural healing processes, stimulating the replacement of up to 20 percent of damaged skin in just one Fraxel treatment. In short, Fraxel helps you achieve stunning results from the inside out—all with reduced downtime and discomfort compared to harsher ablative lasers. Most patients experience minor redness and flaking for just a few days after Fraxel treatment and do not experience multiple weeks of redness, pain, and scabbing. Fraxel is a good option for all skin types and ethnicities, and both men and women can achieve excellent results from Fraxel therapy.
Issues Fraxel can treat
Fraxel is a highly versatile therapy that can be used to address a variety of skin concerns. Patients may seek Fraxel treatment for a specific issue such as acne scarring but end up benefitting from its many other skin-rejuvenating effects at the same time.
