What is Fraxel® Laser Treatment?

Fraxel® laser treatment, a cornerstone of skin rejuvenation in Vancouver, meticulously targets aging and damaged skin. It creates microscopic wounds within the targeted areas, diving deep beneath the skin’s surface, thus, stimulating the body’s natural collagen production and generating new skin cells. Combining the effectiveness of ablative lasers with the gentleness of non-ablative lasers ensures rapid healing with minimal downtime, setting a new standard for anti-aging treatments in Vancouver.

HC-Approved Applications of Fraxel Laser

Our Vancouver clinic’s Fraxel® laser treatment treats various conditions including:

  • Acne scars
  • Age spots/brown spots
  • Melasma (mask of pregnancy)
  • Wrinkles and fine lines on the face, neck and decolletage
  • sagging jowls and skin
 

At Deva Med Spa, our Fraxel laser skin resurfacing is a Health Canada approved fractional laser technique designed to revitalize and enhance skin tone and texture. This treatment effectively targets acne scars, fine lines, and hyperpigmentation on various body parts, including the face, neck, chest, back, arms, and legs. By stimulating collagen production through fractional laser technology, we aim to visibly improve various skin conditions, offering our clients a path to rejuvenated and smoother skin.

The Fraxel Laser treatment at Deva Med Spa utilizes advanced microscopic beams that penetrate deep into the skin’s dermis while leaving the surrounding areas untouched. This innovative approach, being the first FDA-approved fractionated laser for non-ablative skin resurfacing, is recognized for its safety and effectiveness across various skin types. This technique delicately treats deeper skin layers, aiding in comprehensive skin rejuvenation.

How Does Fraxel® Work in Vancouver?

This laser treatment in Vancouver works like a high-precision digital restoration. It treats your skin pixel by pixel, targeting damaged cells while leaving surrounding tissue intact. This fractional approach allows for faster healing and reduces downtime, making it a preferred choice for skin rejuvenation.

Post-Treatment Experience

Post-treatment, patients typically experience a mild sunburn sensation, followed by a pinkish skin tone for about a week. Swelling is minimal and resolves quickly. Most patients can resume normal activities almost immediately, with new epidermal skin developing within twenty-four hours. Post-treatment care includes:
  • Bronzing and Flaking: A bronze skin tone and natural exfoliation process which lasts a few days.
  • Sunscreen: Essential for protection, we recommend SPF 30-plus sunscreen used twice daily.

A state-of-the-art laser treatment like this delivers stunning results, but it requires some time for your skin to heal. Expect a few days of redness and swelling, followed by light flaking for about a week. For significant events, we recommend scheduling your treatment several weeks in advance. For everyday affairs, makeup can generally conceal any post-treatment redness after the initial week.

At Deva Med Spa, we typically advise a series of three clinic visits, spaced three to four weeks apart. Each treatment session lasts around an hour, with the total visit lasting about two hours.

Some clients may experience mild discomfort during treatment. We apply a numbing cream to minimize any discomfort, and over-the-counter pain relief like Aleve® (naproxen sodium) can also help. Our Fraxel® dual platform uses a cooling air flow to enhance comfort.

Downtime varies based on the intensity of your treatment. Common reactions include redness, swelling, and skin flaking as it heals. Our team will provide detailed guidance on what to expect during your consultation and pre-treatment appointments.
