ACNE SCARRING

Fraxel Laser

At The Aesthetic Institute we offer Fraxel re:store® as an Acne Scarring treatment, and for a variety of other skin conditions. This is an extremely effective way to treat scars caused by teenage or adult acne.room

If you are unsure whether Fraxel re:store® is the right treatment for you, we recommend a consultation with the Consultant Plastic Surgeon before commencing a course of treatment. This will give you an opportunity to discuss the best type, frequency and number of treatments for you, the likely achievable outcome from a course of treatment and the best plan for the length and frequency of your treatment sessions, taking account of your lifestyle, routine and commitments. Please call 01 491 5738 for more information.

What is Fraxel re:store®?

Fraxel re:store® is a non-invasive, non-ablative laser skin treatment that can resurface the skin, uncovering the younger skin underneath. It can help give you:

• Smoother, fresher looking skin
• Improved tone and texture
• Reduced unwanted brown spots
• Reduced wrinkles around the eyes
• Improve appearance of acne scars and surgical scars

How does it work?

Fraxel treatment uses patented fractional technology to target damaged skin with microscopic laser columns that penetrate deep into the skin. The laser treats only a fraction of tissue at a time, leaving the surrounding tissue untouched, which promotes rapid healing. This stimulates your body’s own natural healing process, replacing the old and damaged cells with fresh, glowing, healthy skin.

What is the experience like?

Most patients describe feeling a sensation of heat during the treatment. A topical anesthetic agent or cold air may be used to minimize this. Afterwards, most patients feel like they have sunburn, which normally diminishes after a few hours. There can be some swelling and redness for 2-3 days, but these are typically minimal. Some patients experience minor itching, dry skin, peeling or flaking, bronzed skin. These after effects will vary from patient to patient and depending on the intensity of the treatment.

Below is a list of typical prices for a course of treatment for areas that are commonly treated. *However, as each course of treatment is tailored to the patient, these costs may vary slightly. The Consultant Plastic Surgeon will confirm the final price for your particular treatment plan before your treatment begins.
