Fraxel laser treatments are all the buzz. We may not want to admit it, but we’re all getting older. It’s just one of those things that can’t be avoided. “While we can’t stop the aging process, it doesn’t mean you have to look as old as you actually are,” says Dr. Ali Adibfar, one of Toronto’s best plastic surgeons. “If you’re unhappy with the fine lines and wrinkles you’ve begun to develop or you have brown spots that you wish would go away, there’s a solution that can redefine your appearance.”
Fraxel laser treatments have been growing in popularity among both men and women. It’s a relatively new, but extremely powerful technology that can treat aging and sun damaged skin. “Fraxel laser treatments offer a safe, effective solution because it only treats a fraction of the skin,” explains Dr. Adibfar, the medical director at one of Toronto’s best medispas. “This means there’s less downtime required and recovery is more comfortable.”
Fraxel laser is a treatment that’s ideal for men and women of all ages who are tired of imperfect skin. Whether you’re looking to improve tone, pore size, texture or reduce the appearance of sun spots, acne, scars or brown spots, our Fraxel laser treatment can help meet a wide variety of beauty needs. “We’re all searching for a youthful glow that makes us look and feel beautiful,” says Dr. Adibfar. “Sometimes time, our lifestyle and genetics have a different plan for us. But that doesn’t mean all hope is lost. Fraxel can give you the skin you’ve always wanted.”
How Are Fraxel Laser Treatments Performed?
Using a smart scanning hand piece, our highly experienced medical spa specialists use fractional lasers to penetrate the top layer of skin. This will stimulate collagen production, which helps rejuvenate the skin and smooth wrinkles and lines. “During this process, we’ll also use a cooling device to ensure you’re comfortable,” says Dr. Adibfar.
While it will depend on your specific body and beauty needs, it typically takes 3 to 5 treatments to reach the expected results. “Many of our patients will see the results they want within 1 to 3 months,” explains Dr. Adibfar. “Fraxel laser treatments are remarkably safe and can be performed on the hands, neck, chest and even face with most people returning to their normal routine the very next day.”

1. Fraxel laser treatments can deliver amazing results, including:
2. Improved skin texture

What Happens After the Treatment is Completed?
Many people want to know how they’ll look after the Fraxel laser treatment is completed. While it’s a very safe and comfortable procedure, your skin will be slightly swollen and red for about a day. This will slowly subside and your skin will begin to appear refreshed and tanned within about 3 to 14 days. “The healing process is fairly simple and won’t interfere with your normal activities and routines,” explains Dr. Adibfar. “You’ll likely experience some flaking for the first week as your skin rejuvenates.”
Can I Get Fraxel Laser Along With Other Procedures?
When it comes to a person’s specific beauty goals, it may require more than just Fraxel laser treatments. Common procedures that are performed alongside Fraxel laser treatments include Botox and fillers. These medical spa procedures can help enhance your overall beauty and appearance. They work great in combination because these procedures smooth the skin, add volume and provide beautiful contours.
