A Guide on What You Should Know About Fraxel Laser

The most advanced skin treatment, Fraxel in Edmonton treatment from Albany Laser and Cosmetic in Edmonton, is a marvel of modern science. Using two wavelengths on the skin, you get two different effects are differing levels of the skin. This helps us eliminate wrinkles, acne and acne scars, and much more.

The first one operates on the upper layers of the skin at 1550 nm (nanometers). This helps to eliminate fine lines and wrinkles, as well as reducing the appearance of acne and surgical scars.

The second one at 1927 nm reaches a little deeper and promotes collagen production. It helps to deliver younger-looking skin, works on pigmentation issues, and can even help with pre-cancerous lesions.

What does a Fraxel in Edmonton treat?

The Fraxel laser is primarily used to promote the appearance of younger, healthier skin. It aids in the resumption of skin growth and rejuvenation, as well as the removal of scars and lesions.
It’s extremely efficient. It’s also ideal for all skin types, including African-American skin, due to its low melanin absorption.

Before Fraxel

• Avoid prologed sun exposure and tanning for six weeks
• For one week before your treatment, abstain from alcohol, aspirin, vitamin E, retinol, and glycolic acid products.
• Let us know if you are using blood thinners, aspirin, or ibuprofen daily.
• Inform your physician if you have used Accutane (oral acne treatment) during the last year. Fraxel may induce breakouts; please inform us if you are prone to acne.
• If your doctor has prescribed Valtrex, begin taking it the day before your scheduled treatment. For seven days, take one tablet twice daily.
• Keep ice packs in the freezer until you’re ready to use them.
• Arrangements for transportation home following your treatment should be made. This is a non-negotiable requirement.
• The night before your visit, take 50mg Benedryl® at sleep to help with swelling. This is a voluntary feature.
• Prior to your session, clean your bathroom and make your bed with clean bedding to minimize infection risk.

You should also make sure that you have realistic expectations going into the procedure. Everyone has different goals, and yours should line up with what Coolsculpting can accomplish. It is not a way to lose 20 pounds. The treatment helps remove resistant fat and should not be a substitute for a healthy lifestyle.

You should also plan on spending an hour in the facility. 

After Fraxel

• The redness (similar to a sunburn) will continue 5-7 days following therapy.
• Your face will appear rather puffy, especially around the eyes. This will last around 5-7 days. For the first week, at nights, you may take Benadryl 25mg at sleep to minimize swelling.
• Hiegyn is important, you hands should always be washed before touching the treated area.
• Itching may develop, in which case an over-the-counter antihistamine may be used to avoid scratching the sensitive skin.
• Fragility – Due to the delicate nature of your healing skin, please treat it with great care. For 48 hours, refrain from showering the treated area. For one week, avoid allowing the shower spray to close contact with the skin.

Hyperpigmentation (darkening of the skin’s color) – Some bronzing of the treated skin is to be expected following treatment since this is the skin’s natural way of exfoliating the old treated tissue and revealing the newly rejuvenated skin underneath.
• For 4-6 weeks following your treatments, avoid direct sunlight on the treated region.
• For at least three months following your treatments, regardless of season or weather conditions, a wide spectrum UVA/UVB sunscreen (SPF 30 or above) must be used daily until the skin has healed.
• For one month following treatment, avoid strong topical products such as retinol and glycolic acid.
• Continue to take 1000mg of Vitamin C daily for at least three months thereafter.

Fraxel FAQ

Fraxel in Edmonton treatment from Albany Laser and Cosmetic in Edmonton is the most advanced skin treatment available. When two wavelengths are used on the skin, two different effects are produced at different levels of the skin. This helps us get rid of wrinkles, acne, and acne scars, among other things.
At 1550 nm, the first one works on the skin’s upper layers (nanometers). This helps to reduce the appearance of acne and surgical scars, as well as fine lines and wrinkles.
The second one, which has a wavelength of 1927 nm, penetrates a little further and encourages collagen production. It can help with pre-cancerous lesions, as well as delivering younger-looking skin and addressing pigmentation issues.

To be honest, a little. The photo energy is strong, and a stinging sensation is felt. It doesn’t last very long, usually only a few seconds.
For a short time, your face may feel a little stingy and hot. Swelling and pain can be reduced with the use of ice packs. You should sleep on elevated pillows at night, and Dr. Kamal may prescribe an anti-swelling medication.
There is no longer any pain or stinging after about two days. It may take a few weeks to see all of the effects after that.

“The Fraxel in Edmonton is aggressive, but it’s also gentle,” said Dr. Kamal Alhallak, founder of Albany Laser and Cosmetic Center in Edmonton, who holds a doctorate in pharmacy. “Some redness, swelling, and slightly sensitive skin are the most common side effects.” The skin’s healing is to blame for all of this. The fractional ray removes the parts of the body that we don’t want, such as pigmentation in undesirable areas or acne scars. Then it heals and looks great again.”
Some patients develop acne or cold sores in the first few days, which is an unusual side effect. Activation of viruses and bacteria in the skin causes this. It’s essentially the final stages of bugs that have been dormant in your skin for a long time.

The Fraxel laser is primarily used to promote the appearance of younger, healthier skin. It aids in the resumption of skin growth and rejuvenation, as well as the removal of scars and lesions.
It works wonders for pigmentation issues, scars, stretch marks, and skin rejuvenation in general.

The Fraxel DUAL uses two wavelengths of light to treat two different layers of the skin. The Fraxel fractional laser alternates between wavelengths of 1550 nanometers and 1927 nanometers in nanosecond bursts.
The two wavelengths work together to remodel collagen in the skin, which aids in the reduction of ageing and sun damage. There is very little pain and a shorter recovery time because it only works on a small fraction of the skin at a time and does not affect the skin around it.
Dr. Kamal Alhallak, Doctorate in Pharmacy, founder of Albany Laser and Cosmetic Center in Edmonton, said, “This is one of the most powerful tools we have to help make your skin look younger and healthier.” “It’s extremely powerful, but it doesn’t hurt too much, and your skin heals quickly.” The best part is that this is a long-term remedy for skin issues.”

Most probably, no. Fraxel is a cosmetic procedure. We will provide you with an official receipt, and you can try to submit to the insurance or claim it on your tax
