In Chula Vista or San Diego, laser skin treatment aims to improve the appearance of these conditions.
Fraxel laser skin resurfacing uses microscopic laser columns that penetrate deep under the skin, activating your body’s natural healing response. This triggers the production of collagen and elastin, rebuilding your skin from the inside out.
The result is smoother, fresher, more youthful-looking skin.
What to Expect
Whether you live in Chula Vista or San Diego, skin rejuvenation starts with a comprehensive evaluation to determine which of several Fraxel treatment options is right for you. Once you have decided on a treatment plan, the Fraxel procedure will take place conveniently right in Dr. Nowak’s office. A topical anesthetic will be applied to ensure maximum comfort.
The procedure can take from 30 minutes to an hour depending upon the option selected.
After treatment, you can expect some skin redness and tingling similar to that of a sunburn.
You can return to routine activities in as little as one hour or, depending on the type of treatment selected, a few days. Results are visible very quickly and continue to improve over time.
Some patients require only one treatment while others may require a series of treatments, depending on their desired results and if we’re treating for pigmentation, fine lines or wrinkles, or acne scar.
