Is a Fraxel skin resurfacing treatment right for you?
How I finally decided to take the plunge.
I have been wanting to take the sun damage off my neck and chest for a very long time. Have you noticed how we all seem to take great care of the skin on our face but our neck and chest gets neglected?
When I see beautiful skin on a décolletage I am always in awe.
Between the cost, the lack of knowledge and the downtime I kept getting stuck. Finally, everything lined up for me and I took the plunge.
These are the steps I took.
1. I waited for a sale at the Medspa
2. I scheduled it for the fall/winter months so I could stay out of the sun
3. I did my research Well that should be #1 but you know…..
Fraxel is a non-ablative laser that targets aging and sun damage with microscopic laser columns that penetrate deep into your skin. Since the laser treats only a fraction of tissue at a time it leaves the surrounding tissue intact which promotes rapid healing. The skin is resurfaced and new cell growth is stimulated from the inside out.
First, there was numbing which took about 45 minutes or so.
