Fraxel laser is the ultimate solution in fractional skin resurfacing delivering impressive results with minimum recovery time. Fraxel is considered the gold standard in skin resurfacing, rejuvenation and replenishment. It is an FDA-approved new technology laser for skin resurfacing.
Fraxel treatment is used on patients with acne scars, thin wrinkles, frown lines, laxity, scars, melasma, freckles and patches. After a Fraxel treatment, patients also identify other benefits such as smooth, tender and tight skin. Fraxel is used with absolute success not only on the face but also on the neck, hands, breasts as well as other body areas where the older generation lasers could not be applied due to the risk of extended lesions on the skin structure. Another advantage is the significant improvement of wrinkles, where up to now all other methods gave poor results.
Through thousands of microscopic laser spots Fraxel creates deep microscopic resurfacing columns into the dermis, and eliminates old, epidermic cells with aging lesions or discoloration while activating the resurfacing mechanism. It leaves the epidermis intact, penetrating deeper inside the dermis, while due to the gaps between the laser microscopic spots, it targets 20 to 30 per cent of the skin’s surface, without affecting a significant amount of fibroblasts thus ensuring smooth and fast resurfacing.

Each patient’s skin is different. However, clinical trials have shown that for most people, maximum results have been achieved with 3 to 5 sessions, which are usually performed with an interval of 2 to 6 weeks.
Local anaesthetic is applied prior to treatment and cold air is blown on the treated area during the procedure to minimize any discomfort. After treatment, most patients mention a feeling similar to that of a light burn after many hours of sunbathing. This feeling disappears after approximately 1 to 3 hours.
