Everybody's Doing It

Are you thinking about Fraxel laser skin treatment but are a little worried about the recovery and aftercare process? Fraxel laser is a non-ablative laser treatment, which means it does not completely remove the topmost layers of skin as ablative lasers do.

These effects occur because Fraxel exfoliates away the top layer of skin to allow new skin cells to form. You may also experience some flakiness and crusting, too.

Make Facials a Regular Part of Skin Care

When was your last facial? If you can't remember, it has probably been too long! Facials and other skin-rejuvenation treatments aren't meant just for relaxation or a once-in-a-while treat; skin-rejuvenation treatments also play an essential role in the health of your skin. Innovations Medical offers facials and many high-quality skin-rejuvenation treatments to keep your skin healthy and looking great!

How Often Should I Schedule a Facial?
We recommend you have a facial at least every four to six weeks. While this schedule may seem like a lot, this is the perfect schedule to have facials or skin-rejuvenation treatments. This is the average time it takes for your skin cells to go through a complete cycle from new cell to dead cell ready to be exfoliated.

Whether you suffered from acne as a teen or adult, you know that after the blemish fades, in many cases, a scar is left behind. Acne scars are a source of embarrassment for many people and cause some individuals to feel self-conscious in social settings or relationships. Dr. Johnson is helping patients with acne scars get Skin like the Stars with Fraxel Laser skin rejuvenation.

Acne scars develop because acne is traumatic to the skin. Acne blemishes cause inflammation and infection of the skin’s pores. When the blemish swells and bursts, the bacteria from the blemish irritates surrounding skin. To heal the skin, the body increases collagen production for the repair. Sometimes the body over produces collagen which causes raised scars. When the body under produces collagen, scars become sunken or pitted. Many people with acne scars experience pitted scars.

Squeezing or picking at blemishes or acne lesions increases the chance of damage to the skin and scarring. These actions can further infect the blemish, and up the chances of developing a scar.
