Fraxel® laser treatment

The Fraxel® laser is a skin-resurfacing laser used to treat photoaging, pigment changes, and skin laxity. It is a non-ablative laser, so the epidermis is left intact, minimizing down-time. Direct heating of the dermis by the laser stimulates fibroblasts and encourages the formation and deposition of new collagen. The procedure is done in the doctor's office and is mildly uncomfortable Most patients have some redness and swelling for a few days. Fraxel® improves your appearance by affecting only a fraction of your skin at a time with thousands of tiny microscopic laser spots. Results are visible within a few weeks. Most patients can expect improvement in pigmentation, skin laxity, and wrinkles. The Fraxel® can also be used to improve the appearance of some scars.
