Fraxel Treatments in New Orleans, LA Area Can Restore Skin From Acne Scars
A cne is a condition that affects patients of all ages, and it can be hard enough the first time around. When acne is severe enough to leave acne scars, it can feel like the acne never went away or worse. Luckily for patients living with acne scars, there are treatment options available to smooth or reduce the appearance of scarring.

The expert team at Lupo Center for Aesthetic and General Dermatology in New Orleans, LA, offers a variety of safe, effective treatments for men and women looking to address various skin concerns, including acne scarring. Our team employs state-of-the-art Fraxel lasers to restore your skin after acne scarring, rejuvenating your skin's appearance and helping you achieve your aesthetic skin care goals.

What to Expect from Fraxel

The Fraxel Restore Dual Wavelength System is a state-of-the-art treatment protocol that can safely and effectively treat wrinkles and fine lines, scarring, sun damage, and other aesthetic issues. Our office chose it due to its combination of a high safety rating with proven results for various skin types. Fraxel treatments also require minimal-moderate downtime, making the process easier for you.

Every treatment at the Lupo Center begins with a conversation. You'll talk with Dr. Mary Lupo about your skin care goals, and she'll go over the treatment options available to help you achieve them. If Fraxel is suitable for you, you'll review everything you need to know to prepare for the treatment, and Dr. Lupo will answer any questions you have about the procedure.

Fraxel offers excellent, natural-looking results with minimal-moderate downtime. We will tailor your treatment plan to meet your specific goals, and we will adjust the intensity of the treatment to suit your needs. Fraxel can offer superficial, moderate, or penetrative treatments, depending on your particular concerns and symptoms. Fraxel can be applied to your face, neck, hands, and chest. An average in-office treatment takes about 30 minutes, and you'll achieve results within a short series of treatment sessions, restoring your skin to a smoother, younger-looking state. If aggressive settings are used, often only one session gives amazing results.

Before treatment is performed, we'll clean and anesthetize the area of need, so you feel minimal discomfort throughout the process. Some patients report mild prickling or heat, and after treatment, the treated skin may exhibit slight irritation comparable to a bad sunburn.
The number of sessions required varies from patient-to-patient. Depending on the scarring severity, Dr. Lupo may recommend up to 6 sessions, though many patients need only 1 to 3. If scars are shallow, a single session of Fraxel may be enough to get the results you want. Dr. Lupo is experienced using Fraxel with all different skin types, tones, and colors, and she can talk you through any concerns or questions you may have before committing to the procedure.

Thanks to safe, effective technologies like Fraxel, acne scars are no longer permanent. To learn more about Fraxel, or the various ways Dr. Lupo at the Lupo Center for Aesthetic and General Dermatology can help you, call to schedule an appointment for a consultation today (504) 777-3047.
