There’s more to smooth skin than simply being camera-ready. People don’t simply task themselves with preserving their supple skin for the sake of showing off. There are many reasons why it’s a good idea to take good care of the first layer of protection on your body, and it goes beyond the mere fashion trends that so many people associate cosmetic treatments with.
Fraxel treatments have become a phenomenon in recent years. What used to involve complicated procedures and all matter of invasive surgical steps can now be done without piercing a single skin cell. This is what makes Fraxel such a unique treatment among the many other skin resurfacing procedures that are performed today.
Skin starts out smooth for pretty much everyone. It is after years and years of punishment that it begins to lose that smoothness. Consider all the dirty particles in the air, all the scratches and damage your skin has taken all this time; naturally, it’s not going to be in completely great shape. Simple acne scars are enough to cause many irregularities and an uneven surface of skin.
You may initially think this is purely a beauty or aesthetic problem to have smooth skin, but there are actually health-related reasons why it’s such a big deal.
Skin cells grow old and weak as time goes on. This is their natural cycle, as the more they are exposed to the outside world, the weaker they get. As a result, they shrivel and dry up, becoming a lot weaker than they were while still young, which means that your skin’s and overall body’s safety can become compromised. Which is why your skin regularly sheds its old cells and allows for newer ones to grow in their place.
This is a way for it to stay consistently strong and fresh, without losing its ability to withstand any external dangers that may come around. Unfortunately, though this process is completely natural and very effective at what it does, skin does not regrow smoothly by itself. Depending on what cells have been shed or what part of the face is growing the new cells, your skin may become uneven, with all kinds of bumps and trenches.
What Fraxel does, is it takes areas of the skin that have been damaged over time, like for example sun spots and acne scars, and thanks to the special laser tool, stimulates the skin into growing fresh skin cells to replace the damaged ones. Through this, it is able to repair vast amounts of damage on the body, anything from wrinkles to scarring, and all of it is done thanks to the skin’s natural ability to repair itself.
There are no injections, no cuts or incisions involved; the laser barely causes any damage to the skin, but the damage it does make is strictly controlled and strategically applied, in order to properly stimulate the skin.
What to Expect
Clients go into Fraxel treatments for a wide variety of reasons and different results. Among the most popular is younger clients, ages 50 and younger, who go in to treat acne scars. These are generally developed during teenage years and are very hard to get rid of if you don’t take proper care of them while still young. By stimulating the skin to regenerate the skin and get rid of the old damaged cells, clients find their acne scars disappearing under a fresh new layer of skin and a vibrant, supple surface.
Other clients go in for anti-aging with the wish to see their wrinkles and age-related pigmentation disappear. This works very well with Fraxel, as the fresh skin cells create a tighter and smooth skin surface, making the wrinkles less visible. And the new cells also come with more vibrant color, getting rid of skin pigmentation, like sunspots, which come with age.
Fraxel, in general, is a very versatile treatment for repairing the damaged skin surface and anti-aging. It works very well after several treatments with enough time in between for the skin to recover.
