Our Fraxel® Laser is the first non-ablative fractional skin resurfacing treatment that helps improve the quality and texture of your skin. The Fraxel laser helps with aging, sun-damaged, and scarred skin.
For Repairing Skin Damage Fraxel is one of the leading treatments for repairing skin damage. Scars, wrinkles, age spots, melasma – all of them can be safely and quickly treated with the Fraxel laser. It delivers the potency of an ablative laser treatment, with the low downtime of a non-ablative. In short, you get the best of both worlds! We have the newest model Fraxel Dual which erases scars and pigmentation at the same time due to its two wavelengths.
How many treatments will I need?
On average, patients require 3-5 sessions to achieve desired results. Treatment sessions are typically spaced 2-4 weeks apart.
What are the risks?
There are many imitation fractionated lasers out there. Make sure you are getting the real Fraxel which is safe and effective and minimize severe side effects.
How many types of non-ablative Fraxel lasers are out there?
There is the refine, which is for superficial peel, then the restored, which is for deeper peel, then the newest one is the Dual which combines both plus a specialized laser energy to vaporize hard to treat pigmentation in just one treatment! At Skin Perfect we use the Dual Fraxel, the newest most effective of all the models.
Does Fraxel hurt?
You’ll probably feel a bit of heat from the laser while undergoing Fraxel treatments, and local anesthesia will likely be used to prevent most of the discomfort.
Is there any downtime?
For a few days after treatment, the treated area may have minor redness and swelling, similar to sunburn. It’s recommended to avoid exposure to direct sunlight, or to use sunscreen (SPF 30 or above) for 3 months following treatment.
What are the advantages of Fraxel over other laser procedures?
What precautions should I take after a Fraxel treatment?
Always wear sunscreen of SPF 30 or higher, avoid direct sun exposure, and wear a wide-brimmed hat when in the sun—especially for at least 3 months after your last treatment
