Frequently asked questions
How long does Fraxel® treatment take?
The amount of time it takes to perform your Fraxel® will depend on the size of area, location and condition being treated. An approximate time for treatment will be discussed in your initial consultation. On the day of the treatment a topical aesthetic will be applied to your skin and left on for 30 to 60 minutes prior to the procedure.
How many Fraxel® treatment will I need?
The number of treatments will vary depending on the condition being treated and the treatment parameters used. We will discuss with you your lifestyle, work and social commitments to determine how much downtime you can afford. A range of 3-6 Fraxel® is a common number of treatments, however all cases are individual. Your practitioner will discuss the expected number of treatments with you in your initial complimentary consultation.
What level of discomfort can I expect with Fraxel®?
At Flawless a topical anesthetic and Zimmer (chilled air device) is used to manage any heat and discomfort you may experience during the procedure. Fraxel® is generally tolerated well and the practitioner monitors comfort levels throughout procedure.
What will I experience in the hours to days following the Fraxel® treatment?
After the treatment you will experience a sunburn-like sensation, with some oedema (puffiness) and pinkness. The skin will remain pink for 1-3 days. In the days following this, the skin will appear a bronzed colour, dry, and flaky. Regular application of a mild moisturiser is recommended at this stage to encourage the body’s natural healing process. The length of recovery time will depend on the aggressiveness of the treatment performed and your own healing ability.
Can Fraxel® be combined with other treatments?
Treatments such as anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers can be combined with Fraxel®, however it is important to discuss with your doctor, nurse or dermal clinician the spacing of these treatments if they will precede or are planned in the following weeks after Fraxel®.
