Fraxel for Sun Damage on Forehead

Female patient in her 60’s with severe hyper pigmentation and aging skin. She wanted a treatment that would be strong enough to significantly reduce the brown area on her forehead, while stimulating collagen and addressing the lines and skin texture. One month post treatment we can see a significant reduction in the brown area on her forehead. The texture of her skin looks smoother, with less visible fine lines and wrinkles. Immediately after the procedure her skin was slightly red and she had some swelling. The redness and swelling lasted only a few days, followed by the area appearing a slightly darker brown. This is normal for most patients and the brown area or spots will start to slough off, revealing beautiful healthy skin underneath.
