Fraxel Laser Palm Beach Gardens

There are many factors that can impact the natural beauty of your skin. Wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, poor skin tone, and other issues caused by aging and environmental factors can make it challenging to keep your skin looking bright and youthful. At Mandal Plastic Surgery in Palm Beach County, Fraxel laser treatments can help our patients achieve smoother, more youthful-looking skin with minimal downtime. If you are looking for a safe and effective way to rejuvenate the beauty of your skin, Fraxel laser skin resurfacing may be the answer.

What is a Fraxel Laser treatment?

Fraxel Laser is a non-invasive skin rejuvenation procedure that uses fractional laser technology to target and treat different areas of the skin. Fraxel is a non-ablative laser, which means it does not remove the surface layer of the skin during the treatment process. Instead, the fractional laser device creates thousands of microthermal treatment points that penetrate the skin. This creates micro-injuries in the skin that trigger the body’s natural healing response, stimulating collagen production and other essential structural proteins. This helps to make the skin tighter, firmer, and more elastic.

What are the benefits of Fraxel Laser treatments?

Thanks to its less-invasive approach, Fraxel laser treatment can effectively treat a variety of common skin concerns while also causing minimal damage to the skin. This results in a quicker and more comfortable recovery, which means you can return to normal activities sooner.

Thanks to the increased production of collagen in the skin, Fraxel laser treatments can be used to treat issues like:

  • Wrinkles
  • Fine lines
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Rough skin texture

Fraxel laser skin resurfacing can also improve issues like acne scars, melasma, brown spots, and age spots. The best way to determine if Fraxel laser is the right option for your skin concerns is by scheduling a consultation at our Palm Beach Gardens, FL, office.

Who are the best candidates for Fraxel Laser treatments?

The ideal candidates for a Fraxel laser treatment in West Palm Beach, FL, are individuals with visible signs of aging, sun damage, acne scars, or other skin imperfections that they want to eliminate or reduce the appearance. Candidates should have good overall health and realistic expectations about the results possible through non-surgical laser skin treatments.

What’s the first step?

The first step of the process will be scheduling a consultation with your Fraxel laser treatment doctor, Dr. Anita Mandal. During your consultation, Dr. Mandal will assess your skin concerns, discuss your treatment goals, and develop a personalized treatment plan based on your skin care needs.

The treatment typically takes about 30 to 60 minutes, depending on the size of the area being treated. Once your treatment is complete, you will be able to return home.

Fraxel Laser FAQs

Is Fraxel Laser painful?

The Fraxel treatment process should not be painful, though some patients may experience mild discomfort or a slight stinging sensation throughout. To help minimize any discomfort, our team applied a topical anesthetic that will numb the treated areas.

How many appointments will I need?

The total number of Fraxel treatments needed will vary between patients based on the specific skin concerns to be addressed, the size of the areas being treated, and the severity of one’s skin issues. On average, patients will need to undergo a series of around 3 sessions spaced 1 month apart to achieve their desired results.

How long until I see results?

You may notice improvement in the appearance of your skin as soon as several days after treatment. However, it can take 6-12 weeks for you to notice the results of the increased collagen production in the skin. Once all of your treatment is complete, you should see your full results after a few months.

Can I combine my Fraxel Laser treatment with other procedures?

For those interested in more comprehensive skin rejuvenation results, Fraxel laser treatments can be combined with other cosmetic procedures such as chemical peels, Bellafill – 5the 5 year filler, BOTOX injections, or RF microneedling. During your consultation at our office in West Palm Beach, FL, Dr. Mandal can review the treatment options that complement your Fraxel laser treatment results.

What are the risks associated with Fraxel Laser treatments?

While Fraxel laser treatments are safe, potential risks include temporary redness, swelling, and minor skin irritation. In rare cases, patients may experience changes in skin pigmentation or some mild scarring. The best way to minimize your risk of experiencing any issues or complications is to choose a qualified and experienced medical provider to perform your treatment.
