We use Fraxel® laser technology to treat women and men of all different skin types. The treatment can be used to effectively rejuvenate skin in areas including the face, neck, chest, hands, arms, and torso.
Fraxel® lasers treat adult women and men of all ages and skin types. At the Larrabee Center MedSpa, Fraxel laser treatments are routinely performed on delicate areas including the face, neck, chest, hands, arms, back, belly, buttocks, and legs.
After your treatment, your skin will look refreshed, feel soft to the touch, and display an even skin tone. Depending on the area that’s been treated, you can expect benefits to include:
- Significantly improved skin tone and texture
- Unwanted brown spots to be diminished or gone entirely
- Fine lines and superficial wrinkles to be diminished
- Skin that feels smooth and fresh and looks years younger
How Do Fraxel Laser Treatments Work?
At the Larrabee Center for Plastic Surgery in Seattle, we offer non-ablative Fraxel treatments (“non-ablative” here meaning that the surface of the skin is not broken). These non-ablative treatments are performed with the Fraxel Re:store Dual Laser.
The Fraxel laser works by directing light energy into the skin and the tissue beneath it, which stimulates the growth of new collagen in your body, thereby bringing your skin freshness and lift. The laser treatments use a refined laser technology to expose just a fraction of the skin at a time to the laser, and in so doing are effectively able to resurface moderately damaged skin and provide rejuvenation to skin that suffers from a range of problems, including:
- Age spots
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Mottled pigmentation
- Acne scars
- Surgical scars
- Stretch marks
- Enlarged pores
- Other signs of skin damage that accumulate with age
Fraxel is both entirely safe and non-invasive; therefore, a treatment session requires very little downtime for recovery. How long a given treatment session lasts depends on the size and condition of the region being treated. In general, a Fraxel treatment can last as long as two hours or as little as 20 minutes.
