Fraxel Laser Tijuana
Fraxel® Laser is a new non-ablative laser technology that consists of a 30 to 45-minute session, where a cosmetic dermatologist will use a handheld device that improves your skin’s texture, tone, and clarity. Unlike other anti-aging treatments, Fraxel® creates controlled thermal cell destruction. This means that only old or damaged cells will be destroyed by the laser, and a new layer of skin will resurface naturally.
Eliminate your acne scars, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and improve your skin tone. Since is a non-ablative laser, you won’t have any open wounds during the procedure, as the laser works inside out. It penetrates the top layer of the skin, delivering powerful and microscopic heating to old cells, forcing them to the surface and shed. Once the old cells are gone, the skin will naturally produce collagen and hyaluronic acid to create a skin turnover.

What do I need to do before a Fraxel® laser treatment?
You need to make sure you don’t have extensive open wounds or breakouts. If you do, wait for them to naturally heal. Fraxel® lasers are strong, so if they are applied to sensitive skin, it may hurt your skin or have counter effects. Additionally, stop using all beauty products containing retinol a week before your Fraxel® treatment.
Fraxel® Laser treatment Process
Your experience begins before the laser starts to do its magic. To avoid any discomfort, you will be administered a topical anesthetic. Typically, you wait 15 minutes for it to take effect. Once this is ready, your real session begins. Your doctor will cover your eyes and start working. Truth be told, you will feel a light to moderate tingling sensation, but nothing you can’t handle.
Who should I have this performed by?
An expert hand. If you are considering a Fraxel® treatment, you shouldn’t forget the importance of choosing the correct person to do it. You should only get a Fraxel® laser treatment with a board-certified doctor, such a Dr. Saldaña. Only cosmetic dermatologists are able to identify your skin’s necessities and conditions. If you go with someone who isn’t familiar with the laser’s technology, you could end up with irritated skin, bigger scars or breakouts and hyperpigmentation.
