Of course, peeling away our skin isn’t quite so easy, but today’s technologies offer a variety of options to help improve the look and feel of our outer layer. These treatments work to clear away the skin’s surface layer and heal damage underneath it. With time and patience, your current surface layer is replaced by new, more youthful-looking skin.
- Wrinkles and fine lines
- Age spots caused by sun damage
- Uneven skin tone and texture
- Mild to moderate scarring from surgical procedures, acne, or burns
Non-ablative laser therapy does not remove any skin layers. Instead, it heats the deeper layers of the skin to stimulate collagen and elastin production, leaving your skin looking and feeling tighter and smoother. Non-ablative lasers produce more gradual effects and are most effective in helping to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. They can also be used to treat areas of hyperpigmentation. Many skin care professionals will suggest the addition of specific topical creams, gels, or serums that contain antioxidants to further enhance collagen production following non-ablative laser therapy.
Candela offers several non-ablative laser skin resurfacing machines such as the Frax Pro® and Nordlys™ systems. In one clinical study, the Frax Pro 1550 nm wavelength model led to improvement in skin texture in all five patients evaluated.6 In a more recent study, 100% of patients treated with the Frax 1940 nm laser said they were satisfied with the results of treatment.
Think of your skin as an onion. There is that outer, papery layer that you always want to remove right away. As you continue to peel the onion, layer by layer, and things get continually smoother and shinier.
The full results of fraxel laser treatment can take several weeks or months to fully appear, as the body’s natural healing process takes time. Overall, fraxel laser is a safe and effective treatment that can provide significant improvement in the appearance of the skin.
