How does Fraxel laser work?

It is a handheld device which is passed across the skin, while emitting laser energy to the skin surface and below it. This laser energy stimulates the body’s own production of collagen hence promoting rejuvenation of the cells and smoothing of the wrinkles and fine lines in the skin.It tricks the skin into creating new skin and to replace the old skin as the laser creates microscopic injuries to skin and dermis hence promoting self healing and collagen formation in the targeted areas. The surrounding skin remains unharmed and intact.

What are the other uses of Fraxel laser treatment ?

Fraxel laser treatment not only helps treat all the conditions above it also can be used as a treatment option for stretch marks removal. New stretch marks which are red in colour can be removed within 1 to 2 sessions, whereas old stretch marks can be removed with 3 to 4 sessions. Fraxel laser is also one of the newer options for tattoo removal. Used concurrently with other treatments, Fraxel laser can remove tattoos within 2 sessions. It has a better and faster results as compared to other lasers and the skin appears new and like there was never a tattoo prior to that.

Fraxel laser vs Deka laser

Both fraxel laser and deka laser have the same function, that is fractional surface ablation.Both type of treatments have their own pros and cons. The benefit with fraxel laser is that it is a faster procedure ranging from 35 to 40 minutes per session. The fraxel laser also has a faster recovery period, within 4 to 5 days with minimal discomfort felt by the patients. But for full collagen formation it takes upto a few months.

Whereas on the other hand, Deka lasers are the choice laser for acne scars as they are more versatile in function and allows mobility for the aesthetician. It also also fast treatment without recurrent visits.

But in the end it depends on the doctor, who are more comfortable with the device and if they are comfortable with both then which function would the patient require the laser treatment for and henceforth.

The doctor’s experience and expertise determines the efficiency of the treatment. Hence its wise to discuss with your doctor regarding the reason for the treatment and pick the appropriate laser.
