Every treatment that we choose for Bodyvie has been considered with the utmost care, undergoing extensive research and tests to ensure efficacy. We’ve decided to highlight Fraxel Laser Therapy on our blog this month as it is a stellar solution for a myriad of skincare concerns and gets a big thumbs up from us and our clients. Read on to find out more…
What is Fraxel Laser Therapy?
Fraxel is an advanced therapy for scarring and stretchmarks using the latest laser technology to repair damaged skin.
How does it work?
A ‘smart scanning’ hand-piece is used to ensure our doctors can work precisely and safely. Fraxel laser energy penetrates deep within the top layers of skin, stimulating the production of collagen and resurfacing the complexion. By harnessing the body’s natural rejuvenation process, skin is left smoother and healthier.
What problems can Fraxel treat?
At Bodyvie, we find Fraxel improves the following:
- Sun damage and pigmentation – it helps to heal dangerous skin damage and minimises the appearance of age spots.
- Scarring and stretchmarks – Fraxel can help erase the scars left behind after acne and injury as well as fading stretchmarks.
- Fine lines and wrinkles – it’s particularly effective on lines around the eyes.
Will it hurt?
Some patients say that they feel a ‘slight sunburn’ sensation for a while after each treatment, so in order to limit any discomfort we use a topical anaesthetic cream.
How many treatments will I need?
Depending on your concerns, our doctors will decide on the correct number of treatments required. However, we usually advise 3-6 for optimum results. Each treatment takes between 30-60 minutes and as Fraxel works with the body’s natural cell processes, you will find results improve over 1-3 weeks.
