Where to Get Fraxel Laser Skin Treatment in Washington DC

  • Eradicate wrinkles

The FDA has approved Fraxel® for use on the skin of all types. You can achieve immediate results after one appointment, but Dr. Burgess recommends several visits spaced out to get the best results. This method allows for gradual improvement over time, achieving a more natural effect.

If Fraxel® is right for you, your appointment will begin with applying a topical anesthetic, which will numb the skin and keep you comfortable throughout the procedure. Appointments are short and involve focused laser heat to target problem areas, preserving healthy tissue. You may notice some redness after your appointment, but this will go away shortly. This treatment is mild enough that patients will be able to apply make-up, shave, and return to work right after treatment, with zero downtime. Dr. Burgess recommends the use of sunscreen after treatment to protect sensitive cells. As new skin develops following the procedure, you may see bronzing or flaking. It is a sign that the skin is repairing itself. 

If you’re interested in learning more about this procedure, Dr. Burgess will gladly answer any questions you have. She can provide information before and after, making sure you are informed about the treatment process and know how to help guarantee you’ll get the best possible results. 

If you’re interested in learning more about Fraxel® and how it can help you, make an appointment with Dr. Burgess today. To request an appointment, call the Center for Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery (202) 955 - 5757.
