Reducing Scars: What Skin Treatments Really Work?

posted in Fraxel Laser

Who doesn’t want the clear skin that Snapchat filters can provide? In seconds the social media app can wipe out brown sunspots, wrinkles, scars, and all sorts of imperfections to give us a glimpse of our younger-looking selves with clearer skin. Now you can get close to perfect skin with Fraxel DUAL laser treatments at New York Cosmetic, Skin and Laser Surgery Center with Dr. Cameron Rokhsar.

What is Fraxel DUAL and how does it work?

Fraxel DUAL is a laser treatment that uses microscopic laser columns to target the indicators that can make the skin look older, such as wrinkles, scars, melasma, actinic keratosis, and “liver spots”, also known as age or sunspots.

After your skin is thoroughly cleansed a topical anesthetic ointment is applied approximately one hour prior to treatment. The Fraxel DUAL session itself lasts only 20 to 25 minutes, should you decide to undergo a treatment across your entire face.

The lasers probe deep into the skin layers to help the body regenerate collagen without damaging the skin’s surrounding area. The Fraxel DUAL laser treatment encourages rapid healing, and any damaged skin is resurfaced. The laser stimulates new skin cells to develop in a healthy manner.

Which conditions can Fraxel DUAL laser treatments improve?

When visiting our office you’ll discover that Fraxel DUAL laser treatments can help improve any number of your skin problems. Fraxel DUAL is especially effective at reducing those pesky crow’s feet around the eyes, scars from acne or previous surgeries, dark spots, melasma, and rough scaly patches due to sun damage.

How do Fraxel DUAL treatments feel?

Expect to feel the heat during your Fraxel treatments, which is eased by the topical anesthesia that is applied prior to treatments. An integrated cooling feature for additional comfort during your procedure helps to reduce pain as cool air blows. Afterward, you may feel as though you have a slight sunburn, a feeling that tends to go away within hours.

How many Fraxel DUAL treatments should you receive and how often?

After your first Fraxel treatment in New York, you’ll discover that the non-invasive skin enhancement treatment requires little downtime and allows for a fast recovery period. With no injections and no incisions, the Fraxel procedure is designed to bring improved skin texture after a single treatment. However, it is most effective to schedule 3 to 5 Fraxel DUAL treatments anywhere from two to four weeks apart. You should begin to witness immediate improvements that get better over the course of two to three months following your treatments. To protect your skin, in addition to avoiding sun exposure, it is recommended to use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher.

Dr. Rokhsar was involved in the development of the Fraxel laser in 2003 and has trained a majority of the doctors that use the Fraxel laser today. He has done more Fraxel laser treatments than any other physician in the world.
