Dr. Jeanine Downie, time to glow with Fraxel® laser treatment

If you have been letting the condition of your skin go, now is the time to let it glow! Fraxel treatment is a contemporary anti-aging skin resurfacing technique to improve skin texture and radiance. In the hands of Montclair, NJ’s preeminent Board-certified dermatologist, Dr. Jeanine Downie, you can look younger and revitalized, without surgery.


A traditional laser emits a beam of focused light in a specific wavelength. Fraxel takes that technology a step further, fractionating or breaking the ray into a multitude of microscopic columns. They penetrate deep skin layers, without impacting surrounding cells. That makes treatment very effective, with reduced downtime (just a few days for most patients).

FDA-approved Fraxel is a versatile skin rejuvenation treatment:

  • To improve skin tone – Fraxel fades freckles and other pigmentation spots
  • As a sun damaged skin treatment – Sun spots are no match for this powerful. yet gentle. skin resurfacing method
  • For reduction of lines and wrinkles – Robust enough for brow lines, and safe for delicate areas such as crow’s feet
  • To improve the appearance of scarring – acne, surgical, and trauma scars
  • For an overall refreshed complexion – Treatment stimulates internal renewal of healthy cells

Actual Patient Results

Virtually any area of the body, including face, neck, chest, and hands can benefit from Fraxel laser treatment. Because care is tailored to the individual, it is safe for men and women and all skin tones.

Treatment is well-tolerated, generating a sensation of warmth but little discomfort. Usually, a series of three to five sessions, spaced several weeks apart, produces optimal results. You begin to see change immediately, and improvement continues for several months as collagen builds. Skin rejuvenation can be maintained with periodic re-treatment.

It helps with texture, of your skin, it helps in terms of tone, to even it out, it helps with acne scarring, it helps with stretch marks off the face that would be—it helps for surgical scars—it helps for dark circles around the eyes, it helps for big circles around the nose. It is used for wrinkles around the mouth, it is used in a multitude of places, from photo ageing to photo damaging, resurfacing and reinvigorating skin to make patients look and feel their very best. For Fraxel laser you have to come into the office and be numb for about an hour and you do the procedure. I perform the Fraxel myself on my patients, and then you get up, your face is red and it is slightly swollen. You go home you do the wound care and it is bristly. You come back in a month and it works all over again nicely in another month.


While image Dermatology ® P.C. is equipped with an extensive laser suite, Fraxel Restore is the non-invasive treatment Dr. Downie recommends most often. She trusts Fraxel laser results so much that she regularly takes advantage of the benefits for her own complexion.
