You enjoyed the summer sun but now that fall is here, you realize that perhaps you over-did it. Days spent basking in the sun’s glow can take a toll on both the skin’s appearance as well as its make-up. Prolonged and excessive exposure to the sun’s UV rays causes damage both externally as well as internally. Fortunately for you, there are ways to alleviate skin damage. Using the Fraxel DUAL laser treatment, Dr. Michalak is able to reverse damage caused by the sun.
Fraxel DUAL is a unique laser treatment that is applied in a fractional pattern—meaning that only a fraction of your facial tissue is treated per session. Leaving the surrounding tissue intact, promotes rapid healing. Known for its exceptional facial resurfacing qualities, Fraxel DUAL stimulates the growth of new skin cells and gives your skin a youthful vibrancy from the inside out. Fraxel DUAL is a wonderful tool in that it can be used on the face, neck, chest, and extremities—all commonly exposed areas that are thus more susceptible to sun damage.
What Will Fraxel DUAL Do for Your Skin?
Supports Cell Rejuvenation
What you see outwardly is the body’s physical response to damaged skin cells. Sunspots are a common concern for our patients. Caused by melanin, our body’s natural defense system, sun spots are a telltale sign of underlying damage. As you progress through your treatment, the exfoliating like qualities of Fraxel DUAL help sunspots to fade. More so, Fraxel DUAL stimulates the body’s restorative process to cycle out damaged cells for new and healthy cells.
Stimulates Collagen Production
By breaking down collagen and elastin, UV damage accelerates the aging process. The weakening of collagen and elastin cause the skin to appear thin, wrinkly, and saggy. Stimulating collagen formulation, Fraxel DUAL regenerates and supports the skin’s underlying structure. As new collagen forms, fine lines and wrinkles dissipate and the skin gains a youthful tightness.
Treats Precancerous Cells
Whereas many treatments may improve the outward appearance of your skin, Fraxel DUAL has the ability to inwardly repair damaged skin at the cellular level. Proven to mitigate sun damage and treat precancerous cells—Fraxel DUAL is one of the healthiest things you can do for your skin. Working deep within the cell’s structure, Fraxel DUAL’s benefits extend long past the treatment.
