Fraxel® Laser Treatment

Unlike other laser treatments, Fraxel® treatment is able to precisely treat thousands of microscopic areas of skin, using pinpoint laser beams that penetrate beneath the skin’s surface to eliminate old, damaged skin cells. Simply put, Fraxel® treatment promotes your skin’s own healing process.

Your personalized Fraxel® treatment plan

Your physician can develop a treatment plan tailored to your skin’s individual needs. Fraxel Treatments target between approximately 5 to 50 % of the skin’s surface, leaving the remaining 50 to 95 % available to quickly heal the treated areas. Since Fraxel treatment is so precise, it’s safe and effective on delicate skin areas like the face, neck, chest and hands. You can expect two levels of results, immediate and progressive. Immediately after initial healing is complete, the surface of your skin will feel softer, look brighter, and tone will start to become even. Progressive results occur over the next three to six months as the deeper layers of skin continue to heal.

Aggressive treatments require fewer sessions and result in more post treatment side-effects – meaning a few days of social downtime. Less aggressive treatments accomplish the same results, with a few more treatment sessions and less pronounced side-effects. For some types of skin and skin conditions, gentle and/or fewer treatments are best.

Does Fraxel® treatment hurt?

Topical anaesthesia is applied before the procedure and cold air is used on the treatment area during the procedure to minimize discomfort. After the treatment, most patients report a feeling similar to having too much sun. It usually disappears after 2-3 hours.

What side-effects can I expect after treatment and how long will they last?

You will experience some degree of redness and swelling. Other temporary side-effects may include minor itching, dry skin, peeling or flaking, and a bronzed skin appearance. You will be given specific instructions about what to expect and how to minimize the side-effects.

What precautions should I take after treatment?  Wear sunscreen of SPF 30 or higher and avoid direct sun exposure while you’re healing for at least 3 months after your last treatment.
