Removing Your Age Spots with Fraxel®
Do you remember your first age spot? Many men and women remember the first time they noticed a “freckle” on their face that never quite faded. Once that freckle grows into something larger, it becomes apparent that the hyperpigmentation will not diminish with time, and professional treatment is necessary.
If age spots are having a negative impact on your complexion, the Fraxel® re:store DUAL laser provides targeted skin resurfacing that treats imperfections like age spots on the surface of the skin. Fraxel® also has the added benefit of penetrating the deeper layers of the skin for increased collagen production and fewer lines and wrinkles over time.
Diminish Surface Skin Imperfections with DUAL Lasers
Wondering what the DUAL in “Fraxel® re:store DUAL” means? DUAL means that Fraxel® treats the skin on two levels. Fraxel® treats your skin with two lasers at once: the first laser is to diminish age spots on the surface, and the second laser penetrates deep into the skin to increase collagen production and gradually reveal more youthful skin.
Fraxel® re:store DUAL is optimized to treat hyperpigmentation and other surface skin imperfections, as well as the deeper layers. Fraxel® has been around for about 10 years. Since that time, more than 800,000 people have received Fraxel® laser skin resurfacing.
What is Fraxel® Age Spot Treatment Like?
Fraxel® takes about 30 minutes to perform a full face treatment. During the treatment, a trained technician will guide the laser over your face. Immediately after the procedure, you may experience redness and swelling that feels like a sunburn. It’s a sign that your body’s natural healing process is building new skin from the inside out.
Gradually, your body’s healing process produces more collagen to reveal more youthful skin over a period of about 3 to 6 months. You’ll get rid of age spots in the short-term and have brighter skin over time. Remember that it’s important to maintain these results by wearing sunscreen every day, using physician-grade skincare products and staying out of direct sunlight as much as possible.
