Advantages of the Fraxel method
The Fraxel laser combines the advantages of ablative and non-ablative lasers for an optimal result.
Advantage ablative laser: are effective by working the skin with increased temperature.
Advantage non-ablative laser: with little or no side effects and a short time out.
Doctors from Austria with original Fraxel laser can be found in the doctors' directory on the Fraxel homepage.
Before the first Fraxel laser treatment
- Careful examination of the treatment zone
- Create a laser treatment plan that is right for you
Recommendation after treatment
After treatment with the Fraxel laser, new skin cells form within 24 hours. The following is recommended for this process:
Desquamation of the skin
Your skin will naturally flake off with the Fraxel laser as the treated skin sheds the dead tissue. The flaking can be compared to that of a mild sunburn, but without the associated pain. The use of a moisturiser can alleviate this flaking.
Sun protection of the skin
During the post-treatment phase, you should use a sun cream at least twice a day to protect your skin from sun damage. A moisturiser with sun protection factor +30 is suitable for this. Wearing a sun hat is also recommended. In the following months, your body naturally renews the deeper skin tissue touched by the laser treatment.
