The summer sun can be hard on your skin, so it’s important to protect it from the damaging effects of too much sun. But if you are already experiencing sun damage, there are a variety of non-surgical procedures available that can treat the effects. But how do you know which treatment is the best?
Signs of sun damage
Excess exposure to the UV rays of the sun can cause sunburn and damage the skin cells over time. Uneven pigmentation, lines, wrinkles, age spots, and sagging skin, are some of the most common signs of sun damaged skin.
What Is the Best Non-Surgical Treatment to Remove Sun Damaged Skin
Laser skin resurfacing is the best non-surgical treatment for sun damaged skin, and the Fraxel Repair is one of the most effective lasers on the market.
What is Fraxel Repair?
Fraxel Repair is an ablative fractional CO2 laser treatment that peels away the damaged layers of outer skin to reveal a new layer of dewy, glowing skin.
What does the Fraxel Repair treat?
Fraxel Repair treats a variety of sun related skin damage including fine lines, wrinkles, discoloration, and textural irregularities.
How does the Fraxel Repair work?
The Fraxel Repair creates tiny holes in the skin and the controlled wounds trigger the skin’s natural healing response. The body then grows healthy, new skin cells to replace the damaged skin, and also produces more collagen. Collagen makes the skin firmer and plumper.
Is there any downtime after Fraxel Repair?
There is typically 3-5 days of downtime after Fraxel laser treatment.
