The science of Fraxel

Fraxel is a high-intensity erbium glass fractionated laser. That means a precisely focused beam of light is broken into thousands of microscopic channels. The energy penetrating the skin in each of these treatment channels heats the damaged skin while leaving the surrounding cells unharmed. The heat produced kindles natural production of new collagen,which results in rejuvenated skin.

Benefits of Fraxel

Most patients get results with just one to two treatments. Because each column of light energy is about one-tenth the diameter of a hair, healing time is fast, one to four days. Risk of complications is very low because the skin is never broken.

Fraxel laser resurfacing is a great choice to replace damaged tissue with healthy, younger-looking skin. It can be a sole solution, or used in combination with other rejuvenation therapies and a customized daily skin care regimen, for a radiant complexion.
