Wrinkles and Fraxel Q&A

What is Fraxel®?

Fraxel® is a non-invasive cosmetic laser used to improve the look of your skin by activating your body’s own ability to heal itself. In addition to improving the appearance of lines and wrinkles, Dr. Jain also uses Fraxel to:

  • Even skin tone
  • Reduce pore size
  • Improve the appearance of acne scars
  • Minimize age and sun spots

Dr. Jain also uses Fraxel to treat melasma and actinic keratosis, which is a precancerous skin condition that causes crusty skin growths.

How does Fraxel work?

The highly specialized laser penetrates only the top layers of your skin. Its dual action resurfaces the top layer to reveal the younger skin underneath, while stimulating the production of collagen, which is the protein that makes your skin more youthful, to renew and rejuvenate your look.

As you get older, your body produces less collagen, which causes your skin to have less support, leading to lines, wrinkles, and sagging. The Fraxel laser slightly injures your skin to increase production of the youth-promoting protein and improve the look and health of your skin.

What can I expect during treatment?

During treatment, Dr. Jain first places protective eyewear over your eyes. She then places the Fraxel handpiece over your skin, and the pulses of light penetrate your skin to remove the top layer and stimulate the production of new skin. You may feel some mild discomfort as the laser glides over your skin.

The cosmetic procedure takes 15 to 45 minutes depending on the area you’re having treated. The number of treatments you need varies, ranging from one to five. As an aesthetic expert, Dr. Jain works with you to develop an appropriate treatment plan to help you get the best results.

What happens after Fraxel treatment?

You may experience what feels like a mild sunburn immediately following treatment with Fraxel, but the symptoms disappear within a few days.

You should start to see an improvement in your skin within a few weeks after treatment.

Dr. Jain recommends you use sunblock and other protective measures following Fraxel laser treatment to protect your skin and improve the longevity of the procedure.
