Fraxel uses patented fractional technology that penetrates deep into the damaged skin with microscopic laser columns. Rapid healing is promoted as only a fraction of tissue is treated each time and the surrounding tissue is left untouched. The body’s natural healing process is stimulated to replace old and damaged cells so as to reveal fresh and glowing skin. Fraxel may be used to improve tone and texture of skin, reduce wrinkles around eyes, improve appearance of acne and surgical scars, erase unwanted brown spots, treat pre-cancerous lesions (actinic keratosis). It may be used to treat face, neck, chest, arms, legs, and back. Fraxel® DUAL 1550 penetrates deep into the skin layers to specifically target concerns such as wrinkles or acne scarring. Fraxel® DUAL 1927 effectively targets tone, texture and other superficial signs of aging. Fraxel laser is a safe, non-ablative laser that may be used to resurface damage skin and uncover youthful skin. Desired outcomes may usually be attained after multiple treatments. After the treatment, redness or swelling of the skin may be experienced depending on the level of treatment. This subsides over the next few days and the skin will naturally bronze over the next week or two. The skin will flake and exfoliate normally, as with a sunburn, to reveal fresher, smoother, and glowing skin.
