Everything You Need To Know About Fraxel Laser Skin Resurfacing

4 years ago By Nulook Medspa Laser Treatment

What is Fraxel Laser Skin Resurfacing?

Fraxel is a non-invasive laser that penetrates your skin to boost the production of new collagen and elastin. In other words, it smooths wrinkles and scars and diminishes brown spots. Fraxel basically resurfaces your entire skin tone.

What are the benefits of Fraxel?

Fraxel can address different skin concerns. It can lift away discolouration such as age spots, pigmentation, sun damage, and pre-cancer spots. It can also target and smooth fine lines, acne scarring, wrinkles.

What areas can be treated with Fraxel?

At NuLook we can treat any area of your concern - face, neck chest, hands, back, legs - just about anywhere.

Is Fraxel safe?

Fraxel is safe for all skin tones, however it might not be the best treatment for someone who has melasma. Dr. Mohan will let you know if this is the best treatment for your skin, so definitely book your consultation.

What should I do before my treatment?

You should stop using any products that might cause your skin to be sensitive a full week before your treatment: no chemical peels, acids, retinoids. On the day of your appointment you can come wearing makeup if you want - we will take it off for you before the treatment.

How long does a Fraxel treatment take?

The treatment time varies based on the area you are getting treated - the larger the area, the more time is needed. On average, however, it is 15 to 25 minutes. Keep in mind that it takes another 15 to 30 minutes for topical anaesthesia to kick in.

Is Fraxel painful?

It depends on the level of your pain tolerance. However, usually, after the numbing you will only feel a little stinging. Even though lasers do not feel great, the results are worth it! Contact us now to book your consultation with the Toronto's top medical professionals who will advise you whether Fraxel Laser Skin Resurfacing is the best treatment for you
