What is FRAX laser resurfacing? 

Laser skin resurfacing is a non-invasive, cutting-edge skin treatment that reduces wrinkles, age spots, acne scars, and other blemishes. Simultaneously, it tightens skin and balances skin tone and pigmentation.

Laser resurfacing removes the outer layer of skin while the underlying skin is heated. This stimulates the growth of collagen, your body’s building block for new, fresh and elastic skin. Your old skin will peel away over about a week, and the new skin formed beneath will be smoother and firmer.

What should I expect with Frax laser resurfacing?

We will cleanse your skin and apply a topical numbing cream approximately 45 minutes before your Frax laser treatment. The procedure itself takes less than half an hour. A thin layer of gel is applied, then the treatment is performed, stimulating the growth of new, healthy skin cells to replace the damaged cells. You can expect to experience a slight prickling sensation during treatment.

What is the recovery like after Frax laser resurfacing in NYC?

You may need three to five days of downtime after Frax laser skin rejuvenation in NYC . You can expect the treated skin to be red, scaly, and peeling for a few days. Avoid harsh products for a week after treatment and apply plenty of sunscreen when you go out. Use a gentle cleanser and moisturizer twice a day and avoid peeling or exfoliating your skin. The peeling and swelling diminish after about four to six days and your skin will appear fresh and pink. You can apply specialized makeup to camouflage your healing skin during the final phase of healing.


What is the Nordlys Frax 1550?

The Nordlys Frax 1550 is an innovative fractional laser technology that works to slow the process of skin aging and restore firmer, healthier, more youthful skin. This laser treatment creates tiny, controlled islands of heat damage in the skin, surrounded by healthy tissue. As the body repairs the controlled damage, it replaces collagen in the entire treatment area, reducing fine lines and wrinkles and creating a fresher look. This treatment also improves pigment and renews the surface of the skin.

How should I prepare for Fraxl laser resurfacing with the Nordly Frax 1550?

Do not schedule laser treatment if you have extensive skin breakouts or any open wounds or infections. Stop using any retinoid products one week before the procedure.

How many treatment sessions will I need?

You may need a series of treatments for optimal results. We can custom-tailor a treatment plan for you. Sessions are scheduled approximately four to six weeks apart.

How soon will I see results of Frax laser resurfacing?

Results typically appear in approximately one week after the first treatment session. If you have multiple treatments, collagen production may continue, and results may continue to improve for up to six months after the final session.
