​​​​Frequently Asked Que​stions

What yo​u need to know about Fraxel laser skin treatment


Start by h​aving a face-to-face consultation with your Kelsey-Seybold specialist.

What is the recovery time following Fraxel® laser treatment?

After the procedure, a sensation reminiscent of a mild sunburn may be experienced. This is usually present for a few hours or perhaps a little longer. For the next five to seven days, skin may appear somewhat swollen with redness resembling sunburn. But don’t worry, the treatment is beginning to work. Read post-Fraxel skincare to maximize results and help improve recovery time​. ​

Is the procedure painful?​

Most patients report that the procedure isn’t painful, but individual sensitivity may vary. There will be a light, topical anesthetic on your skin. You can expect to feel a warm prickly feeling during the short light-energy laser bursts.

When might I start enjoying my improved appearance?

This depends on the level of treatment. As your skin makes way for rejuvenated tissue, the treated area may become dry and flaky. However, in a few more days, you can expect a revitalized, refreshed skin appearance. For six to eight weeks, as tissues heal, appearance will continue to improve. As healing continues, skin will look younger and increasingly refreshed. It is advised you apply sunblock with a sun protection factor (SPF) of 30 or more to areas exposed to direct sunlight.

How long do Fraxel results last?

As long-term individual results can vary depending on the condition of the skin prior to the procedure, improved results can last up to 12 months.

Am I a candidate for Fraxel?

For women and men in good overall health seeking to improve their appearance by helping to reduce signs of premature aging, wrinkles, acne scarring and unsightly brown spots, the Fraxel procedure could be your answer. Start by having a face-to-face consultation with your Kelsey-Seybold specialist and discuss your expectations. Together, physician and patient can make the right decision about treatment.
