Fraxel Laser Treatments for Skin Rejuvenation

Fraxel is an innovative way to repair aging skin with the use of a laser that causes controlled damage to healthy skin in order to trigger the body’s natural healing process. The wounds heal in such a way that new collagen fibers form in the skin to reduce the signs of wrinkles and age spots and improve the skin’s texture.

Fraxel Laser Reviews and Results

Everyone who receives Fraxel treatments goes into it looking for help to rejuvenate their skin, whether it is to lessen the appearance of wrinkles, get rid of age spots or other areas of discoloration, or just to resurface and smooth the skin.

One reviewer of the procedure spoke of her hesitation before deciding to have her face and hands treated to minimize the wrinkles. Although the treated areas stung and began to swell on her way home from the first treatment, she was willing to go on because she was already beginning to see results. With each treatment the stinging, redness, and swelling were less and when she was done she admitted that because of the outcome it was well worth it.

Another 50-year old reviewer decided on Fraxel treatments to get rid of the age spots that were the result of years of sun bathing. After three treatments she said her skin felt and looked totally different. The brown spots were gone and years of a dull, beige tone to her skin were replaced by fresh looking pink skin as smooth as a “baby’s bottom.”

Side Effects and Dangers of Fraxel Treatments

The side effects that are most often experienced after a Fraxel treatment are swelling and redness. Swelling is minor and temporary, usually going away within two days. Redness will fade in a few days. Other possible but temporary side effects are:

  • Dry skin
  • Peeling or flaking
  • Itching
  • Bronze skin

Rare side effects include:

  • Infection
  • Scarring
  • Hyperpigmentation

The intensity of side effects depends on how aggressive the Fraxel treatment is and each patient’s ability to heal.

Cost of Fraxel Laser Treatments

The cost of Fraxel treatments can vary for each patient and at what clinic in which the procedure is done. The cost can also depend on the condition of your skin and how large the area that needs to be treated.

The cost ranges from about $750 to $1000 per treatment. It is important to remember that the best results will be reached with four to six treatments done from four to six weeks apart.
