The Fraxel laser works by sending little columns of laser down into the skin, treating a fraction of the tissue at once. It is this fractional technology that allows for a much faster healing. There are two modes.
The first is a superficial wavelength that is suitable for treatment of pigmentation, freckles, actinic keratosis and sun damage.
The second uses a deeper wavelength suitable for the treatment of skin texture, surgical scarring, acne scarring, and fine lines.
The laser works by stimulating our body’s natural healing process by removing old damaged skin cells and encouraging new collagen, elastin and healthy cells to reveal fresh, healthy, glowing skin.
The treatment smooths wrinkles and scars, fades brown spots, and resurfaces the skin tone to reveal fresh, healthy, glowing skin. Common treatment areas include the face, neck, décolletage, hands and arms.
