treatment for sun damaged skin then Fraxel Laser is a great option for you.
What is Fraxel Laser
Like most of the skin resurfacing treatments, Fraxel lasers work on the principle of inflict controlled damage to the upper layer of the skin called epidermis, which in turn leads to the stimulation of certain natural proteins present inside the skin such as collagen. This not only leads to the natural healing of skin but also treats certain skin related problems such as hyper pigmentation, acnes, scars and sun damaged skin.
What makes Fraxel Lasers different from older lasers?
Most of the lasers used a decade or so ago made use of one solid laser beam which sometimes led to severe and irreparable skin damage. With the advent and introduction of Fraxel laser, a lot has changed. These advanced lasers make use of microscopic laser beams unlike the older lasers which used single laser beams for treating skin related problems. This has led to huge difference as the patients receiving fraxel lasers do not experience any sort of discomfort whatsoever due to microscopic laser beams being directed at their skin. So you are not going to feel any sort of pain during the treatment. The older lasers, on the other hand, felt like bee stung which often proved unbearable for some patients, if not all.
Although the results of both the treatments are pretty much the same, but the major difference between the two lies in the fact that fraxel laser is absolutely painless. Therefore, you need not worry about recovery time as this treatment requires no downtime, which is a huge benefit in itself for people seeking treatment for sun damaged skin.
