Fraxel 1927 Laser For Pigment in Toronto
The 1927 nm wavelength is intended for the treatment of superficial indications due to its much higher absorption in the superficial layer of the skin. Higher pulse energies form deeper coagulation zones and affect more tissue volume. Therefore increasing pulse energy may produce more significant biological responses as well as side effects, especially off the face.
This new wavelength is 1927 nanometers and is very specific and effective at treating brown pigment including sun damage lentigines (sun spots), aging spots, and melasma. Remarkable results and clearance of pigments may occur within 7 to 10 days in as few as one treatment, depending on the condition of the pigmentations. The treatments are very tolerable and the face and entire body can be treated with the Fraxel Dual Laser.
The Fraxel Procedure
On the day of treatment topical numbing is left on the skin for approximately one hour prior to the treatment. The actual laser treatment is approximately 20 minutes. During the actual treatment you will feel a warm prickling sensation on the skin which most clients describe as tolerable. Immediately after the treatment, your skin will feel warm which is comparable to a mild sunburn for 1 to 2 hours post-treatment. Redness and swelling is common, however, the degree of redness and swelling will vary from individual to individual. This reaction or pinkness will persist anywhere between three to five days which will be accompanied by bronzing (the skin will have a bronze appearance for 3 to 14 days) and flaking of the skin. Normally a moisturizing cream will minimize the appearance of flaking or peeling. While the skin regenerates and flakes, sunscreen should be applied on a daily basis to protect against sun exposure during the healing process.You may apply make-up and you are able to shave within 24 hour after the treatment.
