FRAXEL®

RESTORING YOUR YOUTHFULNESS

Fine Lines and Wrinkles

FRAXEL® DUAL

The Fraxel treatment is a safe, non-ablative laser skin procedure that can resurface damaged skin and uncover the youthful skin you long for.

  • Improved tone and texture

  • Reduced wrinkles around the eyes

  • Erasing of unwanted brown spots

  • Improved appearance of acne scars and surgical scars

  • Effective treatment of pre-cancerous lesions (actinic keratosis)

  • Excellent treatment for face, neck, chest, arms, legs, and back

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Fraxel treatment uses patented fractional technology to target damaged skin with microscopic laser columns that penetrate deep into the skin. The laser treats only a fraction of tissue at a time, leaving the surrounding tissue untouched, which promotes rapid healing. This stimulates your body’s own natural healing process, replacing the old and damaged cells with fresh, glowing, healthy skin.

WHEN DO THE RESULTS APPEAR, AND HOW LONG DO THEY LAST?

The results are both immediate and progressive. Soon after the treatment, the surface of your skin will feel softer and smoother, look brighter and show a more even tone. The next 3 to 6 months will bring more improvement as the deeper layers of the skin continue to create new collagen. Results are long lasting depending on your lifestyle, age, skin condition and skin care regimen.

HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?

Desired outcomes are typically reached in multiple treatments. The specific number of treatments is tailored to your goals and desired results as well as your lifestyle. We will work with you to identify the appropriate level of treatment and your preferred downtime.

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT AFTER TREATMENT?

Depending on the level of the treatment, you may experience redness or swelling after the procedure which diminishes as quickly as the next day or over the next several days. Your skin will naturally bronze over the next week or two. As you continue with the treatment sessions, the sunburned-to-bronzed appearance will repeat after each treatment. As with a sunburn, your skin will flake and exfoliate normally, revealing fresher, glowing and smoother looking and feeling skin.

IS IT SAFE?

Fraxel treatment is a safe option backed by extensive research. Of course, as with any laser procedure there’s always some risk and/or downtime. You should discuss this with your clinician prior to treatment.
