Fraxel Treatments

E-mail Print PDF

Fraxel treatment is a revolutionary laser treatment that helps you to remove years from your appearance. Fraxel is the pioneer of "fractional photothermolysis", a technology in which thousands of microscopic laser columns - each just one-tenth the diameter of a hair follicle - treat a fraction of the skin at a time without affecting the surrounding tissue. These laser columns stimulate the production of younger, smoother, healthier skin to replace damaged tissue.

Traditionally, two kinds of laser treatment have been available for cosmetic skin treatment: ablative and non-ablative. Typical ablative treatments, which use a high temperature to vaporize unwanted tissue, can be effective—but with significant side effects and several weeks of recovery time. Non-ablative treatments, meanwhile, have very few side effects and low downtime, but they commonly require numerous treatments to produce more modest results.

Fraxel laser treatment delivers the potency of ablative treatments with the gentle safety of non-ablative lasers. So you get the best of both worlds: dramatic results and less downtime.

The Fraxel family of products has three treatments, all delivering remarkable results safely with fast recovery. The three Fraxel treatments fall into two categories:

Non-ablative

Fraxel re:fine® treatment—for prevention and maintenance

Fraxel re:store® treatment—for mild to severe skin damage

As non-ablative laser treatments, Fraxel re:fine treatment and Fraxel re:store treatment can improve mild to moderate skin damage with little to no downtime.

Ablative

Fraxel re:pair® treatment—for the most severe skin damage

Fraxel re:pair treatment is a revolutionary new way to correct the most severe skin damage—without the degree of risks, complications and prolonged downtime of other ablative procedures. Fraxel re:pair treatment uses a high-intensity carbon dioxide (CO2) laser to vaporize unwanted tissue, but thanks to fractional technology, the treatment delivers dramatic results with dramatically faster recovery time than non-fractional treatments—all in a single treatment.

What are the benefits of Fraxel re:fine treatment?

Smoother, fresher, younger-looking looking skin

Improved tone and texture

Erasing of unwanted brown spots

Reduced fine lines around the eyes
