Fraxel Laser

It’s true that natural aging is an inevitable process, one that gradually takes a toll on your skin due to environmental factors, lifestyle habits and more. Although there is nothing that can completely stop you from aging, there are ways to slow down the effects it has on your skin and maybe even help you take back a few years.

Fraxel® laser technology is proven to resurface the skin and reverse many of the features that are making you appear older. Dr. Carl Williams has over 30 years of laser experience and is one of the first physicians in Las Vegas to use Fraxel® technology. As an esteemed educator in this field, he can help you determine just how Fraxel® can be applied to create a younger-looking you.

When Is Fraxel® the Right Option?

If you desire younger-looking skin, but do not want to receive invasive techniques to achieve it, Fraxel® laser treatment may be the most appropriate choice. Laser skin resurfacing technology removes damaged layers of skin without any incisions and less downtime, and it is clinically proven to be a safe procedure if you want to reverse signs of aging.

Additionally, Fraxel® laser treatment is flexible, fitting into your daily schedule seamlessly. Dr. Williams recommends between 1-5 treatment sessions to achieve optimal results, and you can schedule each session during a time that suits your lifestyle.

How Does Fraxel® Work?

The Fraxel® laser penetrates the epidermis (the topmost layer of skin) and targets the dermis (the deepest layer of skin) where collagen production occurs. Through consistent sweeping motions and with the use of smart scanning technology, Dr. Williams passes the hand-held device over the particular treatment area, allowing the laser light to stimulate healing agents within certain regions of your skin precisely.

Once stimulated, your skin begins its natural rejuvenation process, using collagen to eliminate damaged skin cells and restore them with a healthier, smoother layer of skin. In a matter of weeks, the cosmetic imperfections on your skin will dissipate in intensity.

Fraxel laser technology can effectively treat:

  • Crow’s feet and forehead lines
  • Pigmentation from age spots
  • Actinic Keratosis (a pre-cancerous skin condition)
  • Mild to moderate scarring
  • Sun damage from years of UV-ray exposure

Determining how Fraxel® laser technology will work on your skin is a matter of scheduling a consultation with Dr. Williams. Your skin type and texture, as well as the cosmetic imperfections you are facing, will determine how he approaches your treatment with Fraxel®.

Fraxel® laser treatment is effective in its ability to be customized to suit your particular skin type. Dr. Williams can adjust the wavelength frequency to ensure you receive the best possible outcome. Additionally, the number of treatment sessions you receive is dependent upon the results you wish to achieve as well as your particular skin type. This makes Fraxel® laser technology ideal for all ethnicities in both men and women.

Is Fraxel® Laser Treatment Right for You?

For many patients, the Fraxel® laser is a logical next step in skin rejuvenation, but others are unsure whether the treatment will produce the results they are looking for. Fraxel® laser technology is ideal for those who do not want the downtime associated with surgery but desire more permanent results than what injectable treatment can provide. Because Fraxel® induces your body’s natural response system, the rejuvenation process continues to restore your skin over time, giving you semi-permanent results that also look completely natural to your facial contour.

Fraxel® laser technology will not produce dramatic changes that seem as if you’ve had work done. If you require significant facial rejuvenation, facelift surgery may be a more practical option. During a consultation, Dr. Williams can help you determine the right treatment for your unique needs. By listening to your cosmetic concerns and expectations as well as performing a skin examination, he will be able to suggest the procedure that creates the results you desire.

Because Dr. Williams has over three decades of laser experience, he is well-versed in the best ways to produce naturally beautiful outcomes. He also understands that downtime is a significant factor for many of his patients and uses advanced techniques to limit your recovery time. Along with the rest of his staff, Dr. Williams has a goal to make sure you are completely comfortable receiving any enhancement. Rest assured you will experience high-quality service and results that you will love.
