4 Signs You’re a Good Candidate For Fraxel Laser Therapy

A laser skin resurfacing treatment, Fraxel works to minimize the appearance of wrinkles, improve the texture of your skin, and it can even reduce the appearance of dark spots and certain scars. Despite its effectiveness, Fraxel Laser therapy isn’t right for everyone.

Here are 4 signs that you may be a good candidate for this treatment:

1. Your Overall Health is Good

Fraxel laser therapy is best suited for people who are in good overall health. If you do have an untreated medical condition, then your skin specialist may recommend you get the issues under control before undergoing any cosmetic treatment.

Why? Having a medical issue can increase your risk of side effects after a Fraxel treatment, It could also interfere with wound healing.

Fraxel Laser Therapy and Smoking

If you smoke, you should quit a few weeks before undergoing Fraxel. This is because smoking interferes with your body’s ability to heal. It also makes you age faster, undoing the great results you’d receive from this treatment.

  • 2. You’ve Noticed Some Signs of Aging

You don’t have to have extensive signs of aging to get some benefits from Fraxel laser therapy. This cosmetic treatment is also ideal for patients who are just beginning to show some signs of aging, such as:

  • Fine lines
  • Spotting or discolouration
  • Unevenness in skin texture



3. You Have Some Scarring

Fraxel isn’t just for aging! It can also help patients reduce signs of scarring that may have been caused by acne or surgical incisions. It does this by encouraging the production of new skin cells and by triggering a reaction that will cause the damaged scar cells to slough off.

4. You’re Committed

One Fraxel laser treatment doesn’t take long and the recovery is very brief, however to experience the best results, you will require a series of treatments. These should be spaced 1-2 months apart and doing so takes commitment.

How many treatments will I need?

This will depend on many factors, including the current condition of your skin and what you hope to achieve from the treatments. Your skin care provider will be able to give you a more comprehensive understanding during your consultation.
