Fraxel Treatment is a safe, non-invasive procedure that allows you to rediscover the fresh, healthy skin of your youth. Fraxel treatment can:
How Does It Work?
Fraxel Laser creates thousands of microscopic thermal (heat) spots that form deep, vertical columns or zones of treated skin tissue, which are separated and surrounded by unaffected, healthy skin tissue. This innovative approach allows us to treat a very small fraction of skin at a time, so the skin heals much faster than if the entire area were treated at once. Since approximately 20-25% of the skin's surface area is treated at one time during each treatment, it is necessary to receive 3-5 treatments spaced 1-4 weeks apart, to achieve optimum results. On the skin's surface, the laser energy eliminates old, sun damaged and pigmented cells, penetrating deep into the dermis. This stimulates increased collagen growth. The body's natural healing process creates new healthy tissue to replace the microscopic zones vaporized by the Fraxel Laser. There is an immediate improvement in tone, texture and pigment. The deeper wrinkles that improve by collagen remodeling will decrease visibly, day after day, month after month, and with each treatment. The results are smoother, softer, brighter skin; its elasticity is restored.
