Read between your lines
Consider that the skin of the face is just like your bed at home. The top layer of the skin is like the doona, the middle layer the mattress and the lower layer is like the bed base. As we get older, any of these layers, and sometimes, all three, suffer from the aging process. The result is a dragging down of the face, lines and a heaviness along the jaw-line.
As we age, the ‘bed-linen’ layer becomes more bulky and the skin loses its elasticity just like the bedsprings in an aging mattress. Well the bed-springs in our analogy, is the equivalent to the collagen in our skin. In fact there is a great deal of similarity between bedsprings and collagen because collagen is a spring-like molecule that gradually unwinds as we age so that the skin loses its natural elasticity.
The Fraxel laser energy recoils those bedsprings, returning the existing collagen to natural resilience and elasticity. But more than that, the Fraxel stimulates the cells that produce more NEW collagen, so even months after you have completed treatment, the skin will continue to improve with a lift of the skin reducing the signs of lines and wrinkles.
Until Fraxel, doctors used traditional lasers to strip the ‘bed-linen’ from the mattress which potentially lead the patient to a long healing time and increased risk of complications. Unlike most other lasers known as Ablative Lasers, (which literally means to vaporize at a very high temperature) the Fraxel is unique. The Fraxel™ is a Non-Ablative Laser and therefore has few side-effects and has almost no healing time. Involving a series of five treatments over 5 months to achieve results, the Fraxel® Laser combines the impact of Ablative Lasers with the gentleness of Non-Ablative Lasers.
