Would you like to improve your facial appearance… in person and on Zoom calls? Our new Fraxis PRO Laser treatment may be an ideal solution. Fraxis PRO is a brand new, state-of-the-art technology that features a fractional CO2 laser and RF microneedling all in one platform. With a single treatment you can refresh, refine, and revive your skin… and successfully address sun damage, scars, acne, fine lines and wrinkles.
The procedure is usually done in the office without sedation. Before the procedure, a numbing cream is applied for increased comfort during the treatment. During the treatment you may feel slight pressure and tingling while the micro-sized needles gently penetrate the skin and deliver heat to stimulate collagen production. You can expect the procedure to take about 20 minutes. No dressings are required, and only a thin layer of skin care is applied before you are on your way.
Typically, there is no downtime and you can return to your normal activities immediately following your treatment. Your skin will have some moderate redness, which usually subsides by the next day. Patients can expect to see significant improvements after one session, but 2-3 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart is recommended to achieve optimal results. For more aggressive correction, higher energy can be used on the laser, prolonging recovery time.
The best way to determine if you are a good candidate for this exciting new Fraxis PRO treatment is to schedule either an in-person or virtual consultation. During a consultation, the procedure is explained in detail and all of your questions are answered. You will also learn what reasonable expectations you should have given your skin and goals.
Because I am a Medical Director for Cutera, the company that developed the product, Blackhawk Plastic Surgery & MedSpa is one of only a few practices in the country to currently offer this exciting and effective new anti-aging treatment.
