Fraxel is a non-invasive laser therapy providing a wide array of treatment options to address many forms of aging. It is highly effective against fine lines and wrinkles around the patient’s face, including the brow lines and crow’s feet on the corners of the eyes. It is also an ideal tool in eliminating minor scarring on the surface of the skin such as those that result from acne. Age spots, sunspots, and other forms of pigmentation on the skin can be minimized significantly with the use of this laser technology. Fraxel has also produced relevant results in altering sun damage and healing the skin after excessive exposure. Similarly, it is a good option in managing symptoms of actinic keratosis, which is one of the earliest symptoms of skin cancer.
This technique can be adjusted according to the individual needs of the patient and produces natural looking results that are never gaudy or plastic looking. Fraxel’s proven laser technology has helped countless patients achieve a subtle yet noticeable transformation without the need for much time away from their normal activities.

How does it work?
Thanks to the adjustable feature on this advanced laser technology, the method used for Fraxel treatment is different for each patient and will depend upon the condition that needs to be addressed. A comprehensive consultation prior to the treatment will help the patient and the doctor decide on the best approach moving forward. At the beginning of the procedure, a smart scanning hand piece will ensure that the laser treatment being administered is consistent throughout the procedure. As the fractional laser begins to penetrate the top skin layers, the pulses of light energy will then stimulate the production of collagen in these regions and allow the top skin layers to resurface. As a result of the action of the laser, the skin’s newly produced collagen will start to rejuvenate its cells. Surface scars and wrinkles will noticeably become smoother in the process, as more and more collagen is produced over a period of 1 to 3 weeks. For best results, it is recommended that a patient receive about five Fraxel treatments, with each session taking between 15 to 45 minutes to complete.
