For a younger, healthier look
Fraxel is a popular laser treatment and has been featured in magazines like New Beauty, Allure, More, O and People. It is a very effective option to achieve beautiful skin. The advanced fractional resurfacing technology isolates damaged skin cells and promotes the skin’s natural healing processto produce new cells.
Fraxel is great for treating:
- fine lines and wrinkles;
- mild acne scars;
- stretch marks;
- sun damage and age spots;
- melasma and other pigmentation problems
How it works
Fraxel light energy stimulates your skin’s natural collagen, rejuvenating skin cells below the surface to help smooth the creases and pockets that cause wrinkles and scars. Fraxel only treats targeted problem areas – so the results are focused and effective.
What you can expect from Fraxel treatments:
We suggest that Fraxel treatments be done in packages of 3 treatments about 3-4 weeks apart. Although a treatment takes about one hour, you should allow for a 2-hour visit.
There can be some discomfort during treatment. Our trained providers will apply numbing cream to the area prior to treatment. Some patients choose to take Naproxen (Alleve) to minimize discomfort. The cold air flow of our new Fraxel Dual Platform is an important factor in making your treatment more comfortable.
You can experience swelling and redness, followed by light flaking for 4-7 days as the old skin cells slough off and smooth new skin emerges.
The improvement from Fraxel treatments emerge within 2-3 months after the last treatment in your series.
