If you would like to have smoother-looking skin and are looking to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, scars, or stretch marks, then Fraxis Pro in Washington DC may be the treatment you are looking for. Fraxis PRO is a skin revitalization procedure that uses fractional CO2 resurfacing and radiofrequency micro-needling to treat blemishes and imperfections that can occur on all skin layers. This treatment effectively stimulates collagen and hyaluronic acid production that regenerates the skin, reducing skin blemishes, and enhancing skin elasticity and texture. This technique is perfect for anyone who is looking for an affordable non-surgical procedure to treat their skin.
The Four Types of Fraxis PRO Treatments
There are four types of Washington DC FRAXIS Pro treatments offered at Somenek + Pittman MD, including:
- Fraxis PRO/Revive: Our clinic specializes in this treatment, which involves the combination of CO2 laser and radiofrequency microneedling to treat a variety of skin conditions simultaneously. This approach uses the best of both worlds: CO2 lasers target the outer layers of the skin while microneedling targets the deeper skin layers. The combination of the two techniques can improve the appearance of wrinkles, sun-damaged skin, stretch marks, crepey skin, acne scars, and improve skin texture and tone all in one session. Another benefit to this procedure is that it can be done during one office visit, with minimal side-effects. You should be able to see results in as little as ten days.
- Fraxis PRO Refine (Microneedling with RF): This technique uses microneedling to treat multiple skin conditions and is ideal for treating fine lines, scars, and wrinkles on areas of the face, neck, and knees.
- Fraxis PRO Ultra-Lite Peel (Next Generation Chemical Peel): This procedure uses a CO2 laser to peel away and resurface specific areas of the outer skin, improving its tone and surface. This technique is useful for areas of uneven skin tone and texture.
- Fraxis PRO Ultra: This approach uses a CO2 fractional laser to precisely resurface multiple skin layers all at once without damaging the surrounding skin layers. This technique is an efficient way to reduce scars and crepey skin.
What is the Fraxis PRO Revive Treatment?
Fraxis PRO uses a combination of CO2 laser and radiofrequency microneedling to simultaneously treat skin imperfections, both on the surface of the skin and in deeper dermal layers. Depending on the skin condition, the amount of downtime varies. For example, superficial skin conditions such as age-spots may take a few days to heal, while others such as acne scars or deep wrinkles may take a week or more. The number of treatments also depends on the patient and the condition. In most cases, one to three sessions spread three to six weeks apart are recommended for desired results.
What Conditions Does Fraxis PRO Treat?
A Fraxis PRO Revive treatment is best if you are seeking to reduce superficial and deeper skin blemishes, wrinkles, and imperfections all in one session. This technique is convenient for those who wish to resurface multiple skin conditions because of its multimodal nature.
What is the Treatment Like?
While performing a Fraxis PRO treatment in Washington DC, your plastic surgeon will use two separate handpieces –one for the CO2 laser resurfacing and the other for microneedling.
During preparation, your skin may be cleaned and numbed with a topical anesthetic cream. The process will begin with the microneedling to reduce deeper skin imperfections. Then, the CO2 laser handpiece will treat imperfections on the skin’s superficial layers.
Is There Downtime After the Treatment?
The amount of downtime depends on the patient and the treated problem areas. In most cases, downtime ranges from seven to ten days.
Am I a Candidate for Fraxis PRO Revive?
The prime candidate for a Fraxis PRO Revive procedure will be in relatively good health, and wish to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, age spots, pigmentation changes, and deeper skin conditions such as acne scars.
