Would you like to restore the smooth, firm, evenly colored skin of your youth? If so, Fraxel treatment is an excellent option. It is a next-generation laser system, designed to reduce or erase many signs of aging, sun damage, and more. Because it is much gentler than older skin resurfacing lasers, the treatment is more comfortable, the recovery is much shorter, and the risk of complication is reduced.

What is Fraxel?
Fraxel laser technology has been tested and proven to improve skin quality with little to no downtime. It is an excellent option for:

  • Facial wrinkles and fine lines
  • Superficial scarring, including acne scars
  • Pigmentation problems (dark patches of skin) such as sun spots or age spots
  • Actinic keratosis, which are pre-cancerous skin lesions
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Poor skin texture
  • Visible signs of aging
  • Photo-aging caused by sun exposure or indoor tanning
  • Stretch marks

Gentle, yet powerful
Dermatological lasers have been available for quite some time, and they are one of the best options for achieving significant aesthetic improvement without surgery. However, in the past many patients considered them too painful, risky, or inconvenient. Through many years of clinical research and scientific development, Fraxel has solved these common issues, without detracting from the power of laser treatment.

Fraxel accomplishes this with an innovative energy delivery system. Rather than a broad, intense laser beam, the light is fractionated in to a multitude of tiny rays, which contact individual pinpoints of skin. This heats the tissues, stimulating collagen development and reducing pigmentation. Fraxel Restore is a non-ablative procedure, meaning that it does not remove the skin. Therefore, the process is comfortable and recovery is minimal.

There is essentially no downtime associated with this procedure. You may experience a bit of redness, which should resolve within a few days, leaving fresh, youthful, beautiful skin. Depending on the nature of your concerns, a series of several sessions may be recommended, with progressive improvement.
