Imagine you could take all your skin concerns and peel them away to reveal a new layer of healthy, glowy skin.
That is essentially what a non-ablative fractional laser does, in a small percentage with minimum downtime. This wonderful treatment is called Mini-Fraxel.
The Mini-Fraxel is a non-invasive, microscopic laser that penetrates the skin to encourage new collagen and elastin growth by creating tiny columns of thermal treatment zones replacing damaged skin with younger and healthier-looking skin. Each treatment replaces a small percentage # a fraction of collagen which improves skin elasticity and skin texture.
The skin will be prepped with a topical Lidocaine gel that is applied 30 – 45min before the procedure. The procedure itself is relatively quick, 20 – 25minutes and can be done on the face, neck, chest and hands.
There will be the sensation of intense heat 30-60minutes post-procedure of the treatment. The redness usually fades in several hours, although in sensitive skin it can last for one or two days. Usually, there is some mild residual swelling, more noticeable around the eyes, which peaks at 48 hours. The skin may start feeling rough by day 3 and will start flaking thereafter.
How painful would this be you ask? Most patients have a few hours of mild swelling and pinkness, much as if they have had sunburn.
So…. What are you waiting for? Get your glow on!
