Laser skin & resurfacing treatments can help remove skin defects and blemishes by stimulating the body’s natural healing ability. Nearly any laser skin treatment can accomplish this, but many of them require you to take considerable time off due to the long healing time that is needed to see results. Fraxel™ Dual laser skin resurfacing is different, as it allows the body to heal from the inside out – minimizing down-time and allowing for a much quicker, more pain-free recovery.
Dr. Hall is happy to offer his patients Fraxel™ Dual laser skin resurfacing in Houston, TX. The Fraxel™ Dual system uses two kinds of laser light to allow for the treatment of a wide range of skin conditions, such as:
Fraxel™ Dual laser skin resurfacing is performed either in the office or in the accredited surgical center at Houston Plastic & Craniofacial Surgery. Usually, a topical anesthetic is all that is needed for the procedure, which is applied approximately an hour before the procedure. The procedure itself takes between 20 and 25 minutes depending on the areas you and Dr. Hall decide to treat.
Fraxel™ Dual laser skin resurfacing differs from many traditional laser skin treatments in that it is what is known as a “non-ablative” laser – the top layer of skin is not destroyed during treatment, allowing for a much quicker, more comfortable recovery. Most patients will notice some swelling and redness in the treated areas for a few days after laser skin tightening & resurfacing treatment, and may peel as you would if you had a mild sunburn. After a few days, you will notice your skin beginning to look smooth and shiny.
