Fraxel – Anti-Aging and Cancer Prevention

Conveniently located to serve New York City, Tribeca, and The Upper East Side

Fraxel non-invasive laser treatments have become increasingly popular for treating the cumulative effects of time, sun exposure, pollution, stress and even fatigue — everything that keeps your complexion from looking as young as you feel. But did you know that Fraxel has the potential to destroy pre-cancer and even early skin cancers? A 2013 study in the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology helped to validate Fraxel for this purpose.

More specifically, it’s an effective treatment for actinic keratosis (AK), the most common pre-cancerous skin condition.  AK shows up as rough, red, scaly patches, and is caused entirely by sun exposure and UV damage.  Left untreated, AK can turn into a type of skin cancer known as squamous cell carcinoma.  Fraxel creates microscopic zones of injury in the skin, stimulating a wound-healing cascade that ultimately results in increased collagen production and photo rejuvenation.

Fraxel Restore is the laser of choice because it can effectively treat actinic keratosis that focuses especially on sun damage in the top layers of the epidermis where squamous cell carcinomas start.

So why Fraxel over other treatments?  It is the only treatment that not only treats the pre-cancerous actinic keratosis, but also treats the cosmetic aspects of sun damage.  In other words, it will get rid of the potentially dangerous spots and make your skin look younger too.

You can expect two levels of results, immediate and progressive. Immediately after initial healing is complete, the surface of your skin will feel softer and tone will start to become even. Progressive results occur over the next three to six months as the deeper layers of the skin continue to heal.
