Signs of aging and other imperfections typically appear in the skin as a person ages. Although plastic surgery procedures are available for skin rejuvenation, but many people may want to avoid invasive surgery and choose non-surgical options such as laser skin resurfacing.
Board certified plastic surgeons at MBody offer Fraxel and eMatrix as advanced laser skin resurfacing techniques to patients in Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredricksburg, and other cities across the landscape.
Fraxel laser skin resurfacing treatments are an effective way to counter visible signs of aging, and restore a more youthful looking skin. Almost a million Fraxel treatments have been performed over the last decade. Both women and men of all skin types and ethnicities can benefit from this procedure.
The specialized Fraxel laser focuses pulsating light beams over the targeted areas to eliminate the damaged or dead skin cells one layer at a time. The thermal energy penetrates into the deeper layers, triggering the production of fresh collagen. This enables for re-volumizing of the skin from within in a natural and more sustainable way.
Fraxel laser is designed to address the following common skin concerns:
- Scars arising from acne, injury or previous surgeries
- Darkened skin or hyperpigmentation
- Wrinkles and fine lines
- Sun-damaged or aging skin
- Age spots, liver spots and other skin imperfections
- Enlarged pores or acne prone skin
- Actinic keratosis
The advantage with Fraxel laser is that it only targets about 15 percent of the skin’s surface while penetrating into the dermis. This fractional technique ensures that the surrounding healthy tissue remains unharmed, and the overall healing can occur quickly. A single Fraxel laser treatment will last for about 15 to 45 minutes, and will not involve any post-treatment downtime.
eMatrix laser skin resurfacing is a cutting edge procedure to mitigate the conspicuous signs of aging. The procedure will gently resurface the skin over four to five treatment sessions. It is designed to tighten sagging skin and provide it a subtle lift, enhance skin tone and texture, and improve imperfections such as acne scars, abdominal stretch marks, and mild to moderate wrinkles. It also minimizing enlarged pores and provides a glow to the skin.
The key benefit of eMatrix is that it provides results that are similar to those of more aggressive laser treatments, while avoiding the extended downtime and discomfort associated with more aggressive or ablative procedures. Experienced plastic surgeons at MBody receive patients from Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredricksburg, and nearby areas.
eMatrix sublative skin rejuvenation is based on radio frequency (RF) energy. RF energy generates thermal heat in the deeper skin layers in the affected areas without causing disruption in the skin’s surface. This will help to stimulate the fresh production of collagen and elastin fibers in the skin to strengthen the tissue from within. The procedure involves minimal downtime of about 48 hours, and mild roughness in the skin will remain for three to five days.
