Fraxel Treatments

How Does Fraxel Work?

Fraxel, or the Fraxel laser, creates tiny areas of thermal damage around the skin. This microdamage triggers the skin into ramping up its natural healing process, producing more collagen and pushing newer and healthier skin cells to the surface. A Fraxel laser is used primarily in the cosmetic treatment of the face. Most Fraxel lasers use a dual laser technology: one laser targets pigmentation and sun damage while the other goes deeper to address issues such as wrinkles. Fraxel lasers come in varying strengths with the strongest used on more severe cases.

Conditions Treated by Fraxel (Laser)

Fraxel lasers are used to treat a variety of skin conditions, including hyperpigmentation, sun damage, wrinkles, and acne scarring. Fraxel is especially effective on deep scarring that affects the surface texture of the skin. Stronger lasers such as the Fraxel Restore are able to resurface the skin to a visible effect. Fraxel results in redness and scaling, and it is recommended that you avoid using cosmetics, creams, and acne medication in the days following treatment.
