The Phoenix fractional laser treatment is for anyone who wants to rid herself (or himself) of wrinkles, loose and sagging skin, frown lines, scars, or simply that tired look caused by lack of collagen in the skin.
The Phoenix fractional laser treatment can be performed in different areas of the body, not just the face. It can be performed in the neck, chest, even your hands. The need for treatment may vary from client to client, but basically any skin surface that looks like it would benefit from a little rejuvenation may get treated.
Collagen is a natural component in the body made of amino acids namely Arginine, Glycine, Hydroxyproline, and Proline. It is a protein; and collagen actually makes up thirty percent of all the protein found in our body. It is responsible for keeping skin moisture, tightness, and elasticity.
As we age though, the collagen production of the body declines – this is the reason why we get more wrinkles and lines as we age. Fortunately, the Phoenix fractional laser treatment, encourages and accelerates the skin’s collagen production in turn resulting to less visible lines, less wrinkles, and just youthful glowing skin.
The Phoenix fractional laser treatment is a treatment that involves a tiny laser beam that might produce a warm prickling sensation similar to the feeling of getting a sunburn. But to ensure our client’s maximum comfort, we apply an anesthetic cream to the skin receiving treatment before any procedure is done.
Only the surface that needs treatment is exposed to the laser leaving the surrounding healthy skin completely untouched. In this way, the natural mechanism of the body to produce its own collagen gets activated to restore the skin’s elasticity and youthful appearance.
There is usually little to no downtime after the procedure. Most of our patients can continue with their regular activities after the treatment. The results may also be immediately visible. Some of our patients’ even report to experience continued improvements for up to six months!
