Like fine art, your skin deserves such precision. Dr. Michelle Vessely was one of the first physicians in the Northwest to offer Fraxel™ Laser Treatment (FLT), and subsequently to provide Fraxel Restore Laser Treatments. Now she is one of the few physicians worldwide to offer the Fraxel Repair laser treatments. The family of Fraxel laser treatments provides patients with the positive benefits of traditional laser resurfacing with little to no down time.
The Fraxel Repair laser combines the tried and true results of the CO2 laser in terms of skin rejuvenation, skin tightening, wrinkle reduction and improvement in sun damage with the safety of a fractional laser device. The family of Fraxel lasers has revolutionized skin rejuvenation laser treatments with their fractional devices. You may recall that this treatment approach involves targeting the skin with microscopic beams of laser energy, resulting in significant collagen remodeling without much risk or downtime.
The Fraxel Repair laser has taken this technology to the next level. In one treatment, patients can experience significant improvement in deeper wrinkles, acne scarring, tightening lax skin around the eyes or neck, improving sun spots and sun damage. Better yet, we may treat the neck and chest as well (this was not possible with the traditional CO2 devices). Patients may apply makeup as soon as two to three days after treatment and have temporary erythema or redness which is managed with mineral makeup applications for the first few weeks. Some patients may benefit from a combined treatment of a non ablative resurfacing laser, such as ICON 1540, and the Fraxel Repair laser to more effectively target specific needs.
Schedule a consultation with Dr. Vessely to determine which treatment approach is best for your particular skin needs.
