  2. 2. Fraxel is a semi-ablative procedure based on the skin’s own healing response. Microscopic laser wounds are spaced across the skin with a hand-held scanner. Fraxel light energy stimulates collagen and resurfaces the top layer of skin so that its natural rejuvenation process can repair and restore the complexion. Fine lines, wrinkles, dark spots, uneven skin tone, large pores and acne scarring are improved and the skin is left with a more youthful tone and texture. What is Fraxel laser treatment?

  3. 3. With CO2 laser resurfacing, there is a need for anesthesia, and more risk of scarring. The first fractional lasers took off the entire top layer of skin, resulting in a larger wound to heal and a longer recovery time. Fraxel, on the other hand, delivers the laser’s high precision energy in tiny microbeams, creating tiny wounds on the skin’s surface. It’s similar to aerating a lawn! This lessens the risks associated with treatment and substantially speeds up recovery time. The results are more impressive and they last longer, too. How does Fraxel differ from regular CO2 laser resurfacing? Before After Interested in learning more or setting up an appointment?
