Fraxel Laser Treatment
A couple of years ago, I started seriously thinking about having a brow lift. Because I already have small eyes, I felt like my sagging brow line was only closing my eyes in further. My plastic surgeon encouraged me to try Fraxel Laser Treatment before taking the plunge and going under the knife.
Fraxel is a laser treatment that uses tiny lasers to penetrate deep into the skin. The lasers quickly pass back and forth over the surface of the skin with minimal discomfort. Unlike a face lift, knives are not used, so anesthesia is not needed. Each treatment can be completed within an hour at your doctor’s office. After each treatment, you may experience some puffiness and peeling. Otherwise, you are able to completely function normally.
Benefits of Fraxel:
- Repairs texture of skin (softer and smoother)
- Increased padding (Builds up the layers of the skin to make it appear plump and youthful)
- Diminishes wrinkles in both the neck and face
- Lifts the brows and decreases crow’s feet around the eyes
- Minimizes scarring and discoloration
- No use of knives
- Minimal downtime
I completed five Fraxel treatments between January and April of 2007. Here is a link to a picture of me before beginning Fraxel.

Here is a link to a picture of me one year after completing all five Fraxel treatments. View image
I hope that you will consider Fraxel before taking more drastic measures. If you need a great plastic surgeon, please give Dr. Robert Anderson of Aesthetic Solutions a call at (817) 870 4616.
