Skin Resurfacing with FRAXEL™ Laser.
FRAXEL™ laser is used for skin resurfacing. It is an excellent solution for moderate to deep wrinkles, acne scars, hyperpigmentation, rosacea and sun spots. While it is used mostly on the face and neck, it can also be used on any part of the body to create smooth glowing skin.
Dr. Pyz uses FRAXEL™ laser which is recognized as a gold standard for skin resurfacing due to its high ablation efficiency, short healing time, and outstanding results.
FRAXEL™ laser also stimulates the body’s collagen production to increase the skin’s natural firmness and elasticity.

DISCOVER THE YOUTH IN YOUR SKIN.
Over the years your skin is exposed to sun, air pollution, stress, fatigue and lifestyle factors (e.g. smoking) which can affect your skins texture, color and tightness. Skin contains two proteins, collagen and elastin, which keep your skin youthful and tight, but as we age these proteins break down and as a result will sag and show damage.
FRAXEL™ laser uses patented technology to target damaged skin:
with microscopic laser columns that penetrate deep into the skin
it treats only a fraction of your tissues at one time, which promotes rapid healing
and replaces the old and damaged cells with fresh, glowing, healthy skin.
There is no pretreatment skin care regimen.
After cleaning the skin, anesthetic cream is applied 45 min prior to treatment
Anesthetic is completely removed and the treatment takes approximately 25 min, for a full face
Cold air is blown on the treatment site to minimize the discomfort.
HURT??? most patients describe an increased sensation of heat or pricking
AFTER TX - patients feel like they have a sunburn which usually last for 1- 3 hours
Afterwards the skin will appear pink or red which will last for up to 3 days. The skin will naturally "bronze" over the week or two. Your make-up may be applied to decrease the appearance if you so choose.
As with sunburn, your skin will flake and exfoliate for which reason moisturizing cream is advised to reduce the appearance.
It is recommended to use sunscreen of SPF >30 and avoid direct sun exposure for about 3 months.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS:
You will see an immediate difference after the treatment. The recommendation is to have 3 - 5 sessions spaced about 3 weeks apart.
The results are immediate and progressive.
Soon after treatment, the surface of your skin will feel softer, look brighter and show even tones
The next 3 to 6 months will bring more improvement as the deeper layers of the skin continue to heal.
Results can last for years FRAXEL™ laser depending on your age and skin condition.
