This video highlights the benefits of Fraxel fractional laser resurfacing combined with microneedling and platelet-rich plasma (PRP). As part of the aging process, the skin forms wrinkles, sun spots, and begins to sag. Laser technologies are used along with microneedling and PRP to help exfoliate and lift dead skin cells, sun damaged cells, pigmentation and clogged pores as well as heat the under surface of the skin to build collagen and tighten the skin long term. Fractional laser or Fraxel is the “gold-standard” laser for all skin types of improve discoloration, sun damage, improve pores, shrink fine lines and wrinkles and help early skin sagging. Fraxel is a non-ablative laser, meaning that the skin surface is heated and not burned so there is remodeling of the skin and collagen production without scabs or significant downtime. Dr. Emer’s skin care protocol includes a non-ablative laser like Fraxel at least 3 times a year to improve the quality of the skin, prevent and treat signs of aging such as wrinkles and folds and sun-damage, as well as help tighten the skin. Combined with microneedling and PRP to further enhance collagen production, improve scars and promote significant healing, the skin quality will improve such as the texture, tone and pores. Fraxel is the only laser FDA-approved to treat and prevent skin cancer by creating micro-channels of energy (micro-thermal zones) into the skin that exfoliate sun-damaged cells and simulate repair of damaged cells and the production of new collagen.
For those with scars such as acne scarring or traumatic/surgical scars, fractional laser and microneedling with PRP can be combined with other therapy to enhance the outcomes such as LED therapy, hyaluronic acid fillers, Sculptra, Bellafill, or stem cell therapies. See how these patients achieve great outcomes and no complications from a fractional laser combination treatment.
