FRAX PRO LASER skin resurfacing
Why should you consider fractional nonablative lasers such as FRAX PRO & Nordylys IPL for your skin?
Shanthalamd introduces the Nordlys Frax Pro system, an advanced diode laser targeting 1550 nm and 1940 nm wavelengths for dual-depth skin resurfacing. Addressing concerns like fine lines, texture issues, scarring, and pigmentation, the Frax laser, a non-ablative resurfacing technology, counteracts the visible signs of aging, imparting smoother and refreshed skin.
The Frax laser operates by targeting water in skin cells, creating controlled thermal damage to induce fractionated rejuvenation. As the body responds to this controlled damage, collagen production is stimulated, leading to skin revitalization. The Frax 1550 wavelength addresses deeper resurfacing for issues like deep lines, wrinkles, surgical scars, acne scars, and stretch marks. Meanwhile, the Frax 1940 wavelength focuses on shallow resurfacing, treating benign pigmented lesions and addressing issues like sunspots and freckles.
Key benefits of the Frax system include smoothing textural abnormalities, rejuvenating sun-damaged skin, improving skin texture, visibly reducing scars and wrinkles, removing old damaged skin cells, stimulating collagen production, effectiveness on darker skin tones, and minimal downtime.
Frax treatments are performed with minimal downtime in-office. Results vary based on the target issue and individual needs, with significant improvements in skin texture, tone, and appearance seen in just a few sessions. Before treatment, the skin is anesthetized with a topical numbing agent. The procedure takes approximately 30-60 minutes, accompanied by mild heat-related discomfort. Post-treatment, there may be mild redness and minimal swelling. It’s advised to be cautious about sun exposure, wearing SPF, and using a wide-brimmed hat for protection.
For enhanced results in skin tone, brightness, and pigmentation, Shanthalamd offers a combination treatment of Nordlys IPL with the Frax procedure. This powerful combination aims to leave the skin more even, radiant, and glowing.
Note that Dr. Shanthala often combines this treatment with Exosomes or PRP, especially for acne scars and skin laxity
