Fraxel Laser Therapy

Acne scars, stretch marks, igmentation, pores, wrinkles have been a challenge for dermatologists to treat and it has proved to be an area of concern with populations of all skin types. Fraxel Laser Skin Resurfacing is an FDA- approved fractional laser technology to help restore your skin to its original, perfect texture and achieves smoother, fresher, younger looking skin, improved tone and texture, smaller pores, erasing of unwanted brown spots, acne scars, and surgical scars, and reduces fine line lines and wrinkles.

Fraxel is a safe, non-invasive laser skin treatment that tricks your skin into creating new skin to replace the damaged, or targeted areas, resulting in natural skin rejuvenation that takes years off your appearance.

How Fraxel lasers work is as revolutionary as the results that it delivers. It targets both the epidermis and dermis. We are able to precisely treat thousands of microscopic areas of skin, using pinpoint laser beams that penetrate beneath the skin surface to eliminate old, damaged skin cells. This fractional treatment results in a faster healing process.

You can expect two levels of results- immediate and progressive. Immediately after the initial healing is complete, the surface of your skin will feel softer, look brighter, and tone will start to become even. Progressive results occur over the next three to six months, as the deeper layers of the skin continue to heal.

The number of sessions depends entirely on your skin type, the condition being treated, and how your skin responds to treatment .Studies have shown that the best results are achieved in 3 to 5 sessions done every 4 weeks apart.

Patients are prepared for the procedure with an application of topical anesthetic cream. Post procedure, patients are advised to follow strict sun protection, moisturizing and to avoid use of any bleaching creams, scrubs or strong exfoliating creams.

Following the procedure, patients may encounter redness and swelling which may vary with the intensity of the procedure. These would resolve over a few days, as the skin requires time to heal Patients of skin types 4-6 may in rare cases encounter post inflammatory hyperpigmentation.

The Fraxel laser therapy is being offered at Bahrain Specialist hospital and for any further queries, you can contact the Department of Dermatology.
