Fraxel Laser

Rebuild Collagen for Younger-Looking Skin 

What is Fraxel Laser? 

Want bright, fresh, clear skin? This treatment is for you. We specifically picked the Fraxel Dual as the perfect resurfacing laser for our patients —it offers the most impressive results with the least amount of downtime. The Fraxel 1550nm wavelength targets skin texture, improving deep lines and acne scars. In fact, many of our patients use Fraxel for pigment, fine lines, wrinkles, scars, texture, tone, and pores.

Am I A Good Candidate for Fraxel? 

If you have wrinkles on your face or around your eyes, you’ve probably had a wonderful life, rich with laughter and emotional experiences. After all, expressions like smiling, laughing, pondering, and squinting naturally involve the contraction of muscles—which can lead to wrinkles, furrows, and fine lines. 

Additionally, as you age, your skin’s collagen and elastin break down faster than your body can rebuild them. The slowed remodeling of these skin-tightening proteins causes your skin to thin, sag, and lose elasticity—which often leads to wrinkles, furrows, and fine lines. 

Traditionally, one of the hardest things to treat, but the most common complaint, is pigmentation such as sun spots, freckles, or melasma. Fraxel is an excellent option for these concerns – it also helps with fine lines, texture, pores, and even pre-cancerous skin cells.

Benefits of Fraxel Laser 

We can easily treat multiple sites of the face, neck, chest, hands, and arms—and we can treat all skin colors and types! Fraxel also offers dual wavelengths to let us customize your treatment. For example, the 1550nm erbium non-ablative fractional resurfacing component goes deeper—think wrinkles, acne scars, texture, and tone. Moreover, the skin gets better and better as collagen rebuilds over the next several months. Some people need just one component, and some need both.  

The Fraxel Procedure 

Fraxel is performed by our knowledgeable team using a topical anesthetic so you’re comfortable throughout. The handpiece is applied to the treatment area where it administers laser energy. Afterward, your skin will be treated and made ready for the rest of your day.
