Do you ever look in the mirror and wonder when that new smile line appeared?
Or maybe your age spots are telling people you’re even older than you really are.

  1. Stretch Mark Removal

    Stretch Mark Removal

    If you have stretch marks, you are not alone. From puberty to pregnancy, these pesky imperfections are caused by the loss of dermal collagen due to the stretching of the skin. Although they are not harmful or painful, they can make it difficult to feel confident in your own skin. Fraxel can give you renewed, healthier looking skin with minimal risks, and without discomfort or prolonged downtime.

    Acne Scar Treatment

    Acne scarring and scarring in general can make a big impact on our self-esteem. When these imperfections are in a visible area, it can make us feel vulnerable to our peers. Acne scars can cause longtime concerns-even after the acne is gone. Scars can also serve as an unpleasant reminder of a past surgery or hormonal changes. Fraxel can help minimize and dramatically reduce the appearance of Acne scars and general scars in as little as 1-3 treatments!

  4. Fine Lines & Wrinkles

    Fine Lines & Wrinkles

    As you age, your skin’s collagen and elastin can break down faster than your body can rebuild them. Due to the breakdown of these skin-tightening proteins, your skin may become thin, droop and lose elasticity- which often leads to wrinkles, furrows and fine lines. If you have fine lines or wrinkles, you can continue to embrace your life with laughter, smiles but know that Fraxel can help to solve your appearance concerns.

How does a Fraxel treatment work?

Fraxel laser treatment targets aging and sun-damaged skin with microscopic laser columns that penetrate deep into your skin to expedite your body’s remodeling of collagen. And since the laser treats only a fraction of tissue at a time, it leaves the surrounding tissue intact, which promotes very rapid healing. Fraxel treatment resurfaces your skin by stimulating the growth of new, healthy skin cells from the inside out.

What precautions should I take after a Fraxe treatment?

Wear sunscreen of SPF 30 or higher, avoid direct sun exposure for at least 3 months after your last treatment, and wear a wide-brimmed hat when you're in the sun.

How long do the positive effects of Fraxel treatments last?

It depends on your particular condition and how you care for your skin. Once your skin is treated, continue to protect it as described above. Your physician will give you specific advice based on your individual needs.

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

Swelling and redness are the most common side effects from a Fraxel treatment. Any swelling is typically minimal and subsides within a day or two, and any redness typically fades within a few days. Other temporary side effects may include minor itching, dry skin, peeling or flaking, and a bronzed skin appearance. There is a limited risk of infection, hyperpigmentation, or scarring. The intensity and duration of side effects depend on the aggressiveness of a treatment and on your particular healing characteristics. Your physician will provide specific instructions about what to expect and how to minimize any side effects. Please see our commitment to safety statement for a list of potential side effects.

Does a Fraxel treatment hurt?

Most patients describe an increased sensation of heat during the treatment. To minimize discomfort, topical anesthesia is applied before the procedure and cold air is used on the treatment area during the procedure. After the treatment, most patients feel like they have a sunburn, which usually diminishes in 1 to 3 hours.

How many Fraxel treatments will I need and how will they be spaced?

Clinical studies suggest that on average, an effective treatment regimen is 3 to 5 sessions spaced about 2 to 4 weeks apart. Depending on your condition and schedule, you and the physician may choose to space treatment sessions further apart. Results are immediate and progressive, with optimal improvement usually visible in 2 to 3 months. This time frame and treatment structure allow for complete healing and the production of new collagen and elastin to replace damaged tissue.

How are Fraxel treatments performed?

First, your skin will be cleansed. Then, about 60 minutes prior to treatment, a topical anesthetic ointment will be applied to the treatment area. The Fraxel procedure takes 20 to 25 minutes for a full face.
