True MediSpa offers the Fraxel Restore as a resurfacing technology. Fraxel laser treatment targets aging and sun-damaged skin with microscopic laser columns that penetrate deep into your skin to expedite your body’s remodelling of collagen. Since the laser treats only a fraction of tissue at a time, it leaves the surrounding tissue intact, which promotes very rapid healing. Fraxel Restore treatment resurfaces your skin by stimulating the production of new and healthy skin cells and collagen from the inside out.
Some of the benefits of Fraxel are:
Smoother, fresher, younger-looking skin. Improved tone and texture. Reduction of unwanted brown spots. Reduced fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes. Improved appearance of acne scars and surgical scars.
What to expect:
Most patients describe an increased sensation of heat during the treatment to minimize discomfort, topical anesthesia is applied before the procedure. In addition, we offer a cooling device for increased comfort for our patients. After the treatment, most patients feel like they have a sunburn, which usually diminishes in 1 to 3 hours. You may experience redness, flaking and/or minor swelling for up to 48 hours after the procedure. This procedure is typically done in a series of 3-5 treatments depending on the skin concern for optimal results.
