Dr. Sanaz Harirchian specializes in treating facial flaws and concerns that occur with age. While she is exceptionally adept at cosmetic surgery, she also values the importance of providing non-surgical options for facial rejuvenation, including laser treatments. Our Houston facial plastic surgery clinic proudly offers Fraxel laser technology to patients who want a safe and non-invasive alternative for facial skin renewal.
The Fraxel laser is a revolutionary technology that is used to reduce the visible signs of aging on the face, leaving the skin glowing, refreshed and youthful. In just minutes, Fraxel laser therapy can address the following common facial imperfections that develop over time:
Fraxel laser therapy works by treating a fraction of your skin at a time. Using thousands of microscopic laser spots, the damaged or old epidermal cells of the skin's surface are removed. The deeper layers of the skin are also penetrated. Fraxel lasers are able to stimulate the base membrane of your skin, triggering new collagen formation and ultimately creating healthier, smoother and more even-toned skin.
This "fractional" laser treatment offers many advantages. It allows the damaged or pigmented areas of the skin to be treated intensely while leaving the surrounding healthy skin tissues untouched. Thus, patients gain a faster healing time. The outcome of Fraxel laser treatments is a newer skin surface that looks healthy, young and luminous.
Patients may require multiple Fraxel laser treatments to achieve ideal results. Improvement in skin is typically noticeable within days after treatment, but long-term improvement from collagen production will continue for up to 3 months. Patients tend to experience a "sunburned" feeling as they heal from Fraxel laser therapy. This is only temporary and can be concealed with a suggested make-up.
