FRAXEL® is a cosmetic treatment that targets various skin issues using laser technology. It’s designed to rejuvenate the skin by addressing specific concerns.
Dr. Julia Sabetta provides FRAXEL Dual – both the 1927 nm treatment, also known as Thulium, and the 1550 nm treatment to her patients at her Greenwich, CT office.
FRAXEL® can be used to treat:
- Fine Lines and Wrinkles: FRAXEL® is particularly effective for reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes, such as crow’s feet and brow lines. The treatment works by promoting collagen production, which helps in smoothing out the skin and diminishing these signs of aging.
- Surface Scarring: For individuals dealing with acne scars or surgical scars, FRAXEL® offers a solution to minimize their appearance. The laser treatment aids in resurfacing the skin, leading to a smoother and more uniform complexion.
- Pigmentation: Age spots, often caused by sun exposure and aging, can be effectively treated with FRAXEL®. This treatment helps in diminishing the appearance of these spots, resulting in a more even skin tone.
- Sun Damage: Sun-damaged skin can see a significant improvement with FRAXEL®. The treatment assists in repairing and rejuvenating the skin, reducing the visible effects of long-term sun exposure such as discoloration and texture changes.
- Actinic Keratosis (AK): This common skin condition, characterized by rough, scaly patches caused by sun exposure, can be treated using FRAXEL®. The laser therapy helps in addressing these patches, contributing to healthier-looking skin.
FRAXEL® treatments typically involve a series of sessions, with results gradually appearing as the skin heals and regenerates. It’s important for individuals considering this treatment to consult with a qualified dermatologist or cosmetic professional to understand the potential benefits, risks, and what to expect during the treatment process.
