Rejuvenate your skin with a laser resurfacing treatment in Washington, DC

Laser Skin Resurfacing Treatment at Center for Dermatology & Dermatologic Surgery in Washington DC Area

As you get older, your skin production slows down, and it begins to lose elasticity. Sun damage and uneven pigmentation can also start to take a toll on your look. Dr. Burgess offers Fraxel laser skin resurfacing treatment for patients in the Washington, DC, area to improve the texture of your face, neck, and other parts of the body. If you are looking for “Fraxel treatment near me,” reach out to the Center for Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery.

Benefits of Fraxel laser skin resurfacing

Fraxel is a gentle, versatile treatment able to produce two wavelengths of light during one treatment. These lights are small and precise, and they work by penetrating the deeper layers of skin to remove damaged cells and stimulate your body’s natural healing to replace old skin with brighter, tighter new skin.

Fraxel can reduce the effects of aging, scaring, and sun-damaged skin and deliver results within a week, without leaving noticeable redness to give away your secret. Fraxel can be used to treat:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Sagging skin
  • Stretch marks
  • Freckles
  • Acne scars
  • Enlarged pores
  • Uneven pigmentation
  • Sunspots

Fraxel also works well with other treatments, such as Infini RF microneedling, to enhance your results. Dr. Burgess will evaluate your skin and discuss your beauty goals to find the best treatment plan for smooth, younger-looking skin.

What to expect during your treatment

Before your procedure, our team will use a topical anesthetic, so you will not feel a thing. It takes 30 minutes to an hour to numb, and the procedure takes between 15-30 minutes, depending on the treatment area. Fraxel laser creates tiny thermal heated zones using fractionated erbium. By treating carefully interspersed areas of skin, your body can heal faster. Within a couple of days, the old skin will come off, revealing smoother, radiant skin. You can expect a full recovery in about three to five days. Some patients may require 2-3 additional treatments, depending on their skin.

Fraxel can provide lasting results, especially with proper skincare. Dr. Burgess will talk with you about the best way to care for your skin to slow down the effects of aging and can recommend the best products for your skin type.
