Laser Resurfacing – Fraxel Laser – Richardson
One of the more advanced skin treatments that is changing the landscape is Fraxel. Fraxel is a type of laser resurfacing technology that rejuvenates the skin using a concept called fractional photothermolysis. The cutting-edge technology takes the resurfacing benefits of traditional ablative, damaging skin treatment while being as gentle as non-ablative skin treatments.
Laser resurfacing of the skin has generally been divided between ablative and non-ablative techniques. The trade-off between the two would be that ablative techniques have more dramatic results but have a longer recover period, whereas non-ablative techniques are gentler but achieve more modest results.
The Fraxel laser makes the best of both techniques by targeting the parts of the skin that need to be treated and leaving other parts unharmed. Consult with an experienced practitioner like Dr. Denton Watumull to learn more about laser resurfacing.
