How Can You Maximize the Benefits of Fraxel?
Booked your appointment for Fraxel yet? Fraxel re:store DUAL is a laser treatment that resurfaces skin by using heat to induce collagen production. A few months after your Fraxel treatment, your skin will appear more youthful as Fraxel diminishes fine lines and skin imperfections like acne scars, skin laxity and hyperpigmentation.
If you are planning on having Fraxel treatments, you’ll want to keep your skin supple and hydrated between treatments and after your final appointment. This keeps your skin in optimal condition, and enhances the results of your Fraxel treatments.
The Post-Procedure Kit by SkinMedica®
At AlluraDerm MD Med Spa, we recommend our patients use a post-procedure kit by SkinMedica®, the world’s most advanced skincare company. The SkinMedica® post-procedure kit includes:
- Sensitive Skin Cleanser
- Heavy Moisturizer (TNS Ceramide Treatment Cream)
- Healing/Protective Ointment (Restorative Ointment)
- Sunscreen (Daily Physical Defense SPF 30)
The products in the post-procedure kit encourage healing by creating a barrier over the skin to protect it from the elements. Your skin will be extra sensitive after your Fraxel treatments, but the post-procedure kit protects it and helps to lock-in moisture during the healing process so you have even more beautiful results.
What to Expect After Your Fraxel Treatment
As stated above, your skin will be sensitive after your Fraxel treatment, making wearing sunscreen even more important. For the first 24-48 hours, your skin will look and feel as if it has been sunburned and as your skin healing process progresses, you will notice dryness. It will then flake and exfoliate, so a heavy moisturizer is necessary.
