Reverse the ageing process.
If you want to have a beautiful, more youthful look, then Fraxel laser is for you. Fraxel is the worldwide leading brand of fractional lasers for cosmetic rejuvenation.
At Illuminate Cosmetic Medicine we have access to two different types of Fraxel lasers, enabling our team to correct a wide range of skin problems and dramatically improve skin appearance, beauty and visible signs of ageing.
What is Fraxel Laser?
Fraxel laser treatment harnesses fractional laser resurfacing technology to uniquely target two key skin complaints:
- Discolouration to your skin caused through wear and tear in the sun, pigmentation or age spots.
- Fine lines, wrinkles, or a lifeless complexion created by poor skin condition or the natural ageing process that depletes your natural reserves of collagen.
When applied to your skin, microscopic columns of laser energy penetrate a proportion (fraction) of the skin. This laser energy is absorbed by water molecules in the skin and converted to heat producing tiny areas of thermal coagulation called microscopic thermal zones (MTZ). These stimulate your own natural healing process, prompting your body to replace old and damaged cells, reduce scarring (such as acne scars) and collagen with new healthy cells and remodelled collagen. Fraxel essentially kick-starts your own body to replace old with new.
The fractionated nature of the laser leaves areas of normal (uninjured) skin between the zones of thermal injury, resulting in faster healing. The safety profile of the laser is also greatly improved, allowing treatment of many skin types including darker skin. The depth, coverage and intensity of the Fraxel laser are all controlled by Dr Adam and his team based on your specific needs and skin type.
