HOW DOES FRAXEL WORK?

Laser resurfacing (sometimes called a laser peel) uses highly concentrated microscopic beams of laser energy to remove precise amounts of skin in a controlled, targeted fashion. It vaporizes the skin surrounding wrinkles and scars, minimizing their visibility. It also removes the old, dull top layers of skin and initiates the production of new collagen and elastin, improving skin quality, texture, and firmness.

Laser resurfacing can also be much more powerful than other exfoliative skin treatments such as chemical peels or microdermabrasion, with the ability to treat more severe or advanced skin symptoms.

IS FRAXEL SAFE

Based on a series of clinical studies, Reliant Technologies, maker of the Fraxel  Laser, has received FDA clearances for skin resurfacing and the treatment of:

  • acne scars
  • surgical scars
  • periorbital wrinkles
  • pigmented lesions including lentigos (age spots), solar lentigos (sun spots), and dyschromia (skin discoloration)
  • melasma

  • Partially effective treatment of pre-cancerous lesions (actinic keratosis)
  • Excellent treatment useful for any part of body

WHO IS A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR LASER RESURFACING?

If you have fine lines and wrinkles, shallow acne scars, pigmentation issues (like uneven skin tones or age spots), or dull sun-damaged skin, you may be a great candidate for laser skin resurfacing. However, laser resurfacing may not be ideal for patients with severe acne or very dark skin tones.

How Many Treatments Would you need?

Dramatic results are typically seen after first treatment. At least three treatments are required for optimal results. Treatments are scheduled 2-4 weeks apart.

 Stretch marks (also referred to as striae) are a common skin condition that often manifest as stripes with abnormal color and texture. Stretch marks are a natural response by the skin to a rapid expansion of a body mass, commonly seen with obesity or pregnancy. It is estimated that nearly 90% of all pregnant women will develop stretch marks during their pregnancy. Stretch marks are also genetic: if you’re immediate family has a history of stretch marks, it is likely that you are susceptible.

For many men and women, stretch marks can be a source of embarrassment, spurring a huge growth in products and treatments targeting stretch mark removal. We’ll take an in-depth look at stretch marks and discuss which stretch mark removal treatments have been proven to be effective.

WHAT CAUSES STRETCH MARKS?

Stretch marks can develop when the dermis (second layer of skin) is stretched over a prolonged period of time, leading to inflammation and subsequent breakdown of collagen fibers. Because of this inflammatory process, blood vessels in the area dilate, giving stretch marks a typical purple or red color early on. After a period of months, the destructive inflammatory process subsides and stretch marks appear white.

CAN STRETCH MARKS EVER FULLY DISAPPEAR?

Bright red, very early stretch marks (within a few weeks of developing) may be completely reversible. Unfortunately, many patients seek treatment months to years following their development, after the inflammatory process within the stretch marks has had time to produce irreversible damage. Once stretch marks have turned white, they can be improved but will likely never completely vanish. Any product or treatment promising to completely get rid of white stretch marks should be looked at with skepticism. However, there are treatments that effectively minimize the visual appearance of stretch marks, specifically targeting their color and texture.

WHAT STRETCH MARK TREATMENTS REALLY WORK?

Many of the products touted on late night infomercials promising to get rid of stretch marks are either completely ineffective or only provide minimal temporary improvement in their appearance. To date, no topical cream has been shown to be effective for the treatment of stretch marks.

However, there are clinical treatments available to improve the appearance of stretch marks. A V-Beam laser or intense pulsed light device can be utilized to decrease or eliminate the redness associate with new stretch marks. Resurfacing lasers, such as the Fraxel re:Store and ResurFX devices, are a safe and proven treatment option that impact both skin texture and pigmentation by rebuilding collagen in the treated area. Early stretch marks are best treated with combination therapy in order to reverse the inflammatory process and prevent collagen destruction.
