If you’re looking for an effective and safe way to transform your skin to a smoother, healthier, younger looking appearance, then Fraxel DUAL laser resurfacing may be the answer. This innovative method targets the surface and deep skin layers to rejuvenate your face and other areas. The light energy used by Fraxel stimulates the skin’s natural collagen and skin cells to smooth out wrinkles and scars that have developed over time. Trained specialists like Dr. Bernard Raskin in Bakersfield know how to properly use laser skin resurfacing techniques to provide great results.
If your skin appears older than you’d like it to, chances are sun exposure, stress, the environment, genetics, and aging have taken their toll. Some of the skin issues that Fraxel laser skin resurfacing can help correct include wrinkles, fine lines, acne or surgical scars, age spots, sun damage, pigmentation, or pre-cancerous skin spots.
One of the most advanced cosmetic dermatology treatments available, Fraxel can achieve results in only 15-45 minutes over one to five treatment sessions. A hand-held device scans the skin for utmost safety and consistency. It sends fractional lasers to penetrate the skin’s top layer and stimulate collagen underneath. Fraxel treatment is precise and leaves surrounding tissue unharmed. Only the targeted areas are impacted, allowing skin to rejuvenate as fresh new cells emerge.
Laser skin resurfacing can produce a mild burning sensation and the feeling similar to a sunburn after treatment. Potential side effects may include redness, swelling, blistering, scarring, infection or hyperpigmentation. Discomfort usually subsides within a few days and makeup can be applied to the treated area as needed. drBernardRaskin can help determine the potential risks for your personal case.
Fraxel typically delivers great long-lasting results with fast recovery times. The results are effective and focused on problem areas, providing a visible difference to your skin.

Each laser skin resurfacing treatment improves the skin quality by providing better tone, texture, softening, lightening where desired, and fading of scars.
