Most people are familiar with lasers for hair removal, but did you know that lasers can also reduce acne scars, remove wrinkles, tighten skin, reduce pigment irregularities and more?

As we inch toward summer most people are thinking about their mid-section, their legs and their tan. However, imperfections on your face can leave you just as embarrassed and uncomfortable as a bulging waste line. That’s why the Fountain of Youth Med Spa in Victoria, TX uses the Fraxel laser to treat these facial imperfections.

So how does the laser work? The Fraxel laser targets deep into the second layer of skin, known as the dermis, in order to stimulate new collagen growth. This collagen helps to firm up your face. This new skin formation helps overpower older, flawed skin, including wrinkles, fine lines, acne scars and pigment discoloration.

The Fraxel laser treatment is quick and easy, and there is very little downtime.  Recovery time will vary from patient-to-patient, as some people will be able to return to their normal day-to-day activities, while others may rest for a couple days.

After your treatment your skin will be red and sensitive to the touch, so remember to not use any skin care products that will irritate your face. Also, it’s important to wear sunscreen when going outside after your treatment.

For maximum results we recommend three to six treatments, with at least two week intervals between treatments. You should expect to results within two to three months after the treatments, as this is about the amount of time it takes the dermis to develop new skin.

Isn’t it about time you looked your best? Don’t hide behind make up or cover up your skin’s imperfections, treat and eliminate these facial problems with the Fraxel laser at the Fountain of Youth Med Spa.
