Stretch Marks and Fraxel Laser in Vogue

Featured in the November 2006 issues of InStyle Makeover, Vogue, and O Magazine, Fraxel Laser Treatment is a revolutionary, exciting, nonsurgical, skin resurfacing technique that uses laser light to treat:
 Sun damage and acne scars
 Age spots/brown spots
 Lines and wrinkles, especially around the eyes
 Melasma (mask of pregnancy)

This minimally invasive therapy can also be used to treat other areas of the body, including the neck, chest, hands, and arms, as well as stretch marks. To achieve full results, a series of approximately four treatments is recommended.

A "fractional" therapy, Fraxel Laser Treatment isolates imperfections. The procedure promotes the skin's natural healing process, minimizing healing time. New, healthier tissue replaces the old, damaged cells, resulting in a smoother skin, improved texture, and a more even skin tone. Benefits are achieved with a reduced recovery time when compared with traditional laser skin resurfacing.

In most cases, Fraxel Laser Treatment is easily performed in our office; the procedure takes approximately 30 minutes per area. Prior to treatment, the area of skin to be rejuvenated receives a thorough cleaning, and a topical anesthetic is applied about an hour before the procedure. To accentuate lines that will be treated, an FDA-certified, water-soluble tint, known as OptiGuide Blue, is also applied. If a large area of skin is treated, your doctor will discuss options to minimize any discomfort during the procedure.

Side effects include redness and swelling (which usually resolves within 2-3 days) and dryness, so you should apply a moisturizer following treatment. You might feel a mild sunburn sensation, or notice bronzing and peeling, depending upon both the condition of your skin and the extent of treatment. The OptiGuide Blue solution may leave some blue residue on the skin, particularly on brown spots, but will fade within a few days. The risks of infection or scarring are negligible. It is important to apply a sunscreen of SPF 30 or greater twice daily, as well as to avoid direct sun exposure during the first few months following a Fraxel Laser Treatment.
