Fractional Laser Skin Resurfacing (Frax 1550)
Northwest Arkansas Skin Care Center also offers non-ablative Fractional Laser Skin Resurfacing (Frax 1550) to address a wide range of skin resurfacing or scarring concerns. With Frax 1550 Laser treatments, all fine lines and wrinkles can be reduced (those caused by the sun, especially those around the eyes and lips, respond the best). It is never too late or too early to treat wrinkles once they are formed, after all prevention is better than cure.
The FRAX 1550 laser has very few side effects, less downtime than ablative lasers, and is specific for addressing:
Non-ablative skin resurfacing (including but not limited to treatment of skin texture, fine lines and wrinkles)
Treatment of pink or purple striae (stretch marks)
Treatment of acne scars, ice-pick scars, rolling scars, boxcar scars, atrophic or hypertrophic scars.
Treatment of surgical or trauma scars
Treatment of improving and repairing sun damage
Treatment of minimizing age spots
Frequently Asked Questions
1. How many sessions do I need?
Patients are advised to have up to 3-4 sessions to achieve desirable results. However, multiple sessions can be done to maintain results and to continually boost collagen production.
2. Does it hurt?
To ensure optimal comfort, topical local anaesthetic is applied to the treated area prior to treatment. The Frax 1550 Laser uses SoftCool™ cooling; cool damp air is played onto the patient skin at the point of treatment, increasing comfort.
3. Is there any downtime?
The huge advantage of non-ablative laser resurfacing, contrary to ablative resurfacing, is that there is a minimal, if any, post-recovery period. In other words...lower risk and more rapid recovery. Patients can apply mineral makeup and return to normal daily life immediately following treatment. There may be some redness post treatment, but this subsides shortly following the treatment.
