Adult men and woman with a significant amount of damage who are looking for dramatic improvements to the texture, look and feel of their skin.
During your consultation and assessment you and your nurse will discuss treatment goals and concerns. Your fractional laser treatment is customizable to stay within your tolerance limits of recovery time and discomfort. The more aggressively the treatment is performed the more significant the results that can be obtained, however with more aggressive the treatment there is also more significant recovery time. Once you and your nurse have decided on a treatment depth, the procedure will be discussed with you in detail.
A prescription for pain medication and a medicine to relax are called into your pharmacy by our physician to be taken the day of the procedure. The medicine should be taken an hour prior to procedure. Please have a driver to and from your appointment. After your procedure your skin will be covered in a thin ointment before you leave the facility, some patients find it more comfortable to bring a wide brimmed hat to wear when leaving. You will be quite red and swollen.
Typically 1 or 2 fractional laser treatments are necessary. A maintenance treatment every 2 to 3 years is recommended.
Nancy came in wanting to do away with the heavy lines on her neck and forehead that years of sun worship had left her with. She’d read about Fractional Lasers in a magazine and wanted to know whether she was a viable candidate. After discussing her goals and ensuring she understood the downtime associated with the procedure, her appointment was set.
3 months after having had Fraxel, Nancy couldn’t be happier with the results! “I was really nervous about the procedure – I’d only ever had Botox and I was worried about the lasers! On the big day, Jen’s awesome bedside manner calmed me down and before I knew it I was driving home!
I love how much smoother and more taut my skin feels now and I can’t believe how much more evenly toned it is. I really didn’t think a non-surgical procedure could leave me with such dramatic results!”)
