Currently, you can get laser based options for many types of different cosmetic surgeries ranging from skin resurfacing to stretch mark removal. Among these, two of the more choices are zerona and fraxel laser. If you want to know how these treatments work, the information given will give you a summarized explanation that you can refer to.
Zerona laser is a type of body contouring treatment that uses advanced laser technology to stimulate the movement of the fatty acids so that they will be shift into the empty spaces between the normal cells. The purpose of doing this is to be able to remove these fatty acids through our regular body discharge rather than through surgery. Using this approach, zerona laser patients need not go through any physical insertions as all they need to do is to sit in the zerona machine. As a result, there is no downtime for the patients as well as any painful experiences. In fact, they can return to their daily activities immediately after the treatment.
In contrast, fraxel laser is a new type of skin resurfacing procedure that can improve the look of our skin. For those who are not aware, under the outer skin lies a network of proteins called collagen and elastin that are critical to maintaining the skin’s youthfulness and tightness. However, these proteins are vulnerable to the effects of aging and exposure to direct sunlight. They need to be constantly replaced as the old proteins begin to break down. This is where fraxel laser comes in as it uses an interesting approach to produce more collagen and elastin. What it does is to inflict tiny wounds in the targeted areas to stimulate our natural healing system which, in the process of healing the wounds, will also produce more collagen and elastin.
