Frequently Asked Questions
How does a Fraxel 1550 treatment work?
Fraxel 1550 laser treatment targets aging and sun-damaged skin with microscopic laser columns that penetrate deep into your skin to expedite your body’s remodeling of collagen. And since the laser treats only a fraction of tissue at a time, it leaves the surrounding tissue intact, which promotes very rapid healing. Fraxel 1550 treatment resurfaces your skin by stimulating the growth of new, healthy skin cells from the inside out.
What precautions should I take after a Fraxel 1550 treatment?
Wear sunscreen of SPF 30 or higher, avoid direct sun exposure for at least 3 months after your last treatment, and wear a wide-brimmed hat when you're in the sun.
How long do the positive effects of Fraxel 1550 treatments last?
It depends on your particular condition and how you care for your skin. Once your skin is treated, continue to protect it as described above. Your physician will give you specific advice based on your individual needs.
What side effects can I expect after a Fraxel 1550 treatment and how long will they last?
Swelling and redness are the most common side effects from a Fraxel 1550 treatment. Any swelling is typically minimal and subsides within a day or two, and any redness typically fades within a few days. Other temporary side effects may include minor itching, dry skin, peeling or flaking, and a bronzed skin appearance. There is a limited risk of infection, hyperpigmentation, or scarring. The intensity and duration of side effects depend on the aggressiveness of a treatment and on your particular healing characteristics. Your physician will provide specific instructions about what to expect and how to minimize any side effects. Please see our committment to safety statement for a list of potential side effects.
What should I expect after a Fraxel 1550 treatment?
During the first 24 hours after a treatment, your skin may feel as though it is sunburned, and it will appear pink or red. You can wear make-up to reduce the sunburned appearance. Your skin will naturally bronze over the next week or two, and as you continue treatment, the sunburned-to-bronzed appearance will repeat. As with a sunburn, your skin will flake and exfoliate normally. Use a moisturizer to reduce the appearance of dry flakes.
Does a Fraxel 1550 treatment hurt?
Most patients describe an increased sensation of heat during the treatment. To minimize discomfort, topical anesthesia is applied before the procedure and cold air is used on the treatment area during the procedure. After the treatment, most patients feel like they have a sunburn, which usually diminishes in 1 to 3 hours.
How many Fraxel 1550 treatments will I need and how will they be spaced?
Clinical studies suggest that on average, an effective treatment regimen is 3 to 5 sessions spaced about 2 to 4 weeks apart. Depending on your condition and schedule, you and the physician may choose to space treatment sessions further apart. Results are immediate and progressive, with optimal improvement usually visible in 2 to 3 months. This time frame and treatment structure allow for complete healing and the production of new collagen and elastin to replace damaged tissue.
How are Fraxel 1550 treatments performed?
First, your skin will be cleansed. Then, about 60 minutes prior to treatment, a topical anesthetic ointment will be applied to the treatment area. The Fraxel 1550 procedure takes 20 to 25 minutes for a full face.
What FDA clearances has Fraxel 1550 treatment received?
Wrinkles around the eyes (periorbital wrinkles)
Age spots/sunspots (pigmented lesions)
Melasma (irregular patches of brown skin on the forehead, cheeks, upper lip and nose)
Actinic Keratoses (precancerous lesions)
What are the benefits of Fraxel 1550 treatments?
Smoother, fresher, younger-looking looking skin
Improved tone and texture
Erasing of unwanted brown spots
Reduced fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes
Improved appearance of acne scars and surgical scars
How much does a Fraxel 1550 treatment cost?
Depending on your condition and the areas to be treated, in the U.S. the cost ranges from $750 to $1,500 per treatment. Keep in mind that maximum benefit is usually achieved with an average of 3 to 5 treatment sessions spaced about 2 to 4 weeks apart.
