Here at Krauss Dermatology, we are strong advocates of skin resurfacing because it’s one of the most versatile and effective skincare treatments on the market. It can improve a wide array of skin concerns without surgery or downtime.
To perform skin resurfacing treatments, our dermatologists use the cutting-edge Fraxel® Dual laser. It’s a non-ablative laser that can allow you to enjoy a significant improvement in your skin without extensive downtime.
Skin resurfacing treats a plethora of skin concerns. The Fraxel® Dual laser is the ideal option if you’re struggling with acne scars, age spots, discoloration, fine lines, texture issues, or a number of other issues. It can leave you with smoother, softer skin and a glow that restores your confidence. Even if you don’t have a serious skin concern, skin resurfacing can be a preventative treatment that keeps your skin looking great for years to come.
Quick Treatments and Minimal Downtime
If you opt for skin resurfacing, the actual treatment time is usually 30 to 45 minutes. Most patients opt to come in a bit early for our potent Rx strength numbing cream to reduce discomfort.
While skin resurfacing results aren’t immediate, you can enjoy a noticeable improvement in your skin in several days. This improvement will get even better over the course of several months. Although you may require touch-up treatments down the road, the results are usually long-lasting.
How Does the Fraxel Laser Work?
During a Fraxel Laser treatment, your skin will be penetrated with multiple laser beams, which can reduce skin imperfections and stimulate collagen regeneration. This process can reveal a younger-looking complexion and radiant glow with minimal downtime. While you can expect redness and swelling after each treatment for 3 to 5 days, it is generally mild and tinted sunscreen can be applied to tone down redness. It’s one of the most effective skin treatments out there.
I have been seeing Dr. Krauss for probably eight years and my boys all see other doctors in the practice. They are thorough, nice, timely, have a great staff, and really keep our skin looking great. If you are curious about cosmetic procedures they offer everything under the sun and never push you to do things. Highly recommended.
If you have further questions about skin resurfacing or are wondering whether you’re a good candidate for it, we encourage you to schedule a consultation at Krauss Dermatology. Call us at 781-416-3500 or fill out our online contact form. We look forward to meeting you!
