DSC Laser & Skincare Center is excited to introduce a renewed and improved technology to the scene of laser cosmetics – fractional resurfacing.
Fractional resurfacing (Fraxel) is a breakthrough in improving the quality of the skin. This revolutionary treatment can be helpful in addressing many bothersome skin problems such as wrinkles, acne scars, scars, sun damage, brown spots and other skin problems. The true advantage of the technology is the ability to achieve great results with minimal downtime.
Fraxel Laser Treatment repairs damaged skin pixel by pixel, spot by spot with minimal downtime by promoting fast and natural healing. Restore the healthy skin of your youth and gain a renewed sense of confidence with this safe, non-invasive procedure.
About the technology
Made possible by the advances in laser communication technology, 125 to 250 microscopic laser beams are delivered into the skin. Each beam heats both the epidermis and dermis, allowing both superficial and deep treatment. Although 1,000 to 2,000 pulses are delivered in each square centimeter, skin cells between the beams are not affected thereby allowing for incredibly quick healing. By treating a whole area such as the face with 3-6 sessions, the whole zone eventually is fully treated.
Most patients experience 1-2 days of swelling, 2-4 days of redness and 4-7 days of flaking. Using a moisturizer will help reduce the appearance of dry flakes. There is minimal discomfort after treatment and patients may apply cosmetics immediately. The risks of scarring or skin discoloration are extremely low as this technology is very gentle on the skin.
Wearing sunscreen of SPF 30 or higher twice a day is especially important. Avoid direct sun exposure during the healing process and for at least 3 months after treatment.
