Patients in the Mountain View, CA area who are interested in rejuvenating and enhancing their facial skin may find themselves overwhelmed at the many cosmetic treatments available with dermatologists today. Fortunately, many patients will find the results they desire with the Fraxel Restore treatment, available at The Menkes Clinic.
What is Fraxel Restore?
Fraxel Restore is a laser skin resurfacing treatment that is designed to improve the appearance of wrinkles, scars, and pigmentation. It uses fractional laser technology to stimulate the body’s natural healing process, administering laser energy deep within the skin. This results in a smoother, more youthful-looking complexion as the body produces healthy new skin cells.
How does Fraxel Restore work?
The Fraxel Restore laser delivers heat energy to the skin. This heat energy causes the tissue to regenerate, which leads to improvement in the appearance of wrinkles, scars, and pigmentation. The laser also tightens the skin by stimulating collagen production. A single treatment can provide noticeable results, though many patients are urged to consider several treatment sessions set weeks apart for the most dramatic improvements.
What are the benefits of Fraxel Restore?
Some of the benefits of Fraxel Restore include:
- Improved appearance of wrinkles, scars, and pigmentation
- Tighter skin due to increased collagen production
- Fewer side effects than traditional laser resurfacing treatments
- Minimal downtime and recovery
- Quick and easy treatment sessions spaced weeks apart
Are there any side effects?
Most people experience few if any side effects with Fraxel Restore. Some common side effects may include redness, swelling, and itching. These typically resolve within a few days. More serious side effects are rare but can include blistering, infection, and permanent scarring. It is important to consult with your doctor before undergoing treatment to ensure that you are a good candidate and understand the potential risks.
