What to expect from a Fraxel treatment
The Fraxel laser treatment can take as little as 20 minutes. A topical anaesthetic is applied about 60 min prior to treatment. The total appointment time will vary depending on the treatment area and condition being treated. For a more accurate indication of expected treatment and appointment time, please consult your Fraxel provider.
A series of up to five treatments may be recommended, scheduled about 4 weeks apart. However, the exact regimen will depend on your skin goals, skin condition and circumstances. We therefore recommend consulting your Fraxel provider for an individualised treatment regimen that addresses your skin needs and concerns.
Fraxel can deliver noticeable results in a single treatment – soon after the treatment, the surface of your skin will feel softer and smoother, look brighter and show a more even tone. The next three to six months will bring more improvement as the deeper layers of the skin continue to create new collagen. Results are long lasting depending on your lifestyle, age, skin condition and skincare regimen. Visit Results for more information.
Most patients describe an increased sensation of heat during the treatment. To minimise discomfort, a topical numbing agent is applied before the procedure and cold air is used on the treatment area during the procedure. After the treatment, most patients feel like they have a sunburn, which usually diminishes in 1 to 3 hours.
