The Blog Sydney Unleashed: Tis the Season for Fraxel
City social guide SydneyUnleashed.com has its finger on the pulse when it comes to cosmetic treatments, turning to our very own Dr Josh Wall for advice on Fraxel, the laser treatment loved for a multitude of skin concern solutions. The website reports on the latest and greatest in Sydney’s venues, products and events, bringing the best in industry offerings to the fore.
Speaking for Sydney Unleashed‘s product feature article on Fraxel, Dr Josh Wall, Medical Director of Contour Clinics, shares how this laser treatment is now among the most popular cosmetic laser procedures; with an increasing number of Australians flocking to fade freckles, melasma and signs of ageing from too much sun exposure.
It’s true; Fraxel is a hot treatment right now. Internationally, it’s a stated favourite of celebrities including Kim Kardashian, Oprah Winfrey, Courtney Cox and Trinny Woodall. In Australia, Bec Judd has recently declared herself a champion of Fraxel, as has social media influencer and personal trainer to the stars, Jono Castano, who counts Richard Branson and Rebel Wilson among his clients.
Non-invasive and typically requiring just 15-30 minutes to resurface the skin, Fraxel laser treatment essentially creates micro-damage in a controlled environment to supercharge the skin’s natural collagen and elastin production. It is widely considered a gold-standard skin resurfacing treatment for its efficacy in triggering the skin’s natural healing processes and requiring minimal downtime.
Especially effective during winter when pigment cells in the skin aren’t as stimulated as during the warmer months, Fraxel Laser treatment bookings are currently booming in Australia.
“Visible signs of UV damage caused during the warmer months can be efficiently reduced this time of year in particular, when Fraxel can kickstart your skin’s inbuilt mechanisms to counter the adverse effects of melanin production.” – Dr Josh
Dr Josh details the advantage of choosing Contour Clinics for this treatment. “We use the Fraxel Dual Laser,” he says. “It features two lasers with different wavelengths in one device. One targets pigmentation and sun damage, while the other goes deeper to target wrinkles, texture and acne scarring.”
Now is the time to book your Fraxel laser treatments. And there’s science behind it, too.
“Once collagen and elastin stores have been replenished and your skin is optimally structurally supported, you can enjoy the benefits of bright, even and youthful skin, before the return of summer and without its harshest UV rays interfering with both immediate recovery and long-term results,” advises Dr Josh.
