The Five Things You Should Know About Fraxel Acne Scar Treatment

Posted in Acne Scars, Fraxel Laser by .
The 5 things you should know about Fraxel acne scar treatment:
  1. Fraxel is non-ablative: The Fraxel Restore laser treatment is a non-ablative treatment, meaning that its energy is sent through the skin, without ablating the superficial layers of the skin.
  2. Fraxel treatments are not painful: A topical numbing cream is applied to the skin's surface for approximately one hour prior to the treatment.  As a result, the treatments are very tolerable.  A sunburn-like sensation is felt for a few minutes after the treatment, which is improved by the application of ice packs to the area.
  3. Fraxel treatments are intended to be performed in a series: You will begin to see significant improvement of acne scars after 2-3 Fraxel laser treatments.  Most patients require 4 Fraxel laser treatments for optimal improvement.
  4. Fraxel isn't just for acne scars: During the course of your Fraxel treatments, you will see improvement in the appearance of dark spots from old acne and improvement in the general texture of your skin.  Fraxel laser treatments stimulate skin cell renewal, which leads to healthier skin and all-around skin rejuvenation, in addition to treatment of acne scars.
  5. Fraxel has very little downtime: Most patients have only 2-3 days of downtime after each Fraxel treatment.  Unlike other laser treatments, you may apply makeup and sunscreen immediately after the Fraxel treatment.  Since the surface of your skin was not compromised, you may run errands and go to work immediately following the Fraxel treatment; however, your skin appears to be slightly swollen and sunburnt for 2-3 days following the treatment, so many patients schedule their treatment for Friday and take it easy over the weekend.
