What is Fraxel, and is it safe and effective for New Orleans patients?By Dr. Mary Lupo
Fraxel uses laser technology to resurface the skin. This safe treatment is done in relatively short treatments and it requires brief, social downtime. The energy delivered penetrates into the deeper layers of the dermis, providing deep treatment. As the skin heals from treatment, it uses the body’s natural processes to produce healthier tissue for a more youthful appearance and reduction of sun spots, wrinkles, and pore size.
Dr. Lupo, of Lupo Center for Aesthetic and General Dermatology, has had great success with this FDA-approved treatment device. Studies done with patients and review panels have proven that this method of improving the skin’s texture, tone, and appearance is significant, and that patients are very satisfied with the results that even just one treatment can provide.
Laser dermatology procedures, such as Fraxel, have become increasingly popular over the years due to their safety, effectiveness, and the results that they provide. Patients who are considering improving their skin’s texture and tone can ask Dr. Lupo about the various procedures and treatments available. Depending on the severity of the problems, some patients may benefit from alternative treatments such as microdermabrasion, chemical peels, or a change in their home skin care routine.
