non-invasive solutions

The Traditionally, two kinds of laser treatment have been available for cosmetic skin treatment: Ablative and Non-Ablative.



Typical ablative treatments, which use a high temperature to vaporize unwanted tissue, can be effective—but with significant side effects and several weeks of recovery time. Non-ablative treatments, meanwhile, have very few side effects and low downtime, but they commonly require numerous treatments to produce more modest results.


Fraxel laser treatment delivers the potency of ablative treatments with the gentle safety of non-ablative lasers. So you get the best of both worlds: dramatic results and less downtime.
The Fraxel family of products has three treatments, all delivering remarkable results safely with fast recovery. The three Fraxel treatments fall into two categories:


 Non-ablative

  • Fraxel Clear&Brilliant® treatment—for prevention and maintenance
  • Fraxel Dual® treatment—for mild to severe skin damage

As non-ablative laser treatments, Fraxel Clear & Brilliant  treatment and Fraxel Dual treatment can improve mild to moderate skin damage with little to no downtime.


Ablative

  • Fraxel re:pair® treatment—for the most severe skin damage

Fraxel re:pair treatment is a revolutionary new way to correct the most severe skin damage—without the degree of risks, complications and prolonged downtime of other ablative procedures. Fraxel re:pair treatment uses a high-intensity carbon dioxide (CO2) laser to vaporize unwanted tissue, but thanks to fractional technology, the treatment delivers dramatic results with dramatically faster recovery time than non-fractional treatments—all in a single treatment.

 

Uniqueness of all Fraxel treatment is in the handpiece which utilizes an intelligent optical laser system which minimizes side effects of the laser treatment and provides  a uniform treatment.

 

In all the procedures, first, your skin will be cleansed. Then, about 60 to 90minutes prior to treatment, a topical anesthetic ointment will be applied to the treatment area.  For fraxel Repair your physician may also choose to give you another medication, such as Ativan, to relax you. Most patients describe an increased sensation of heat during the treatment, and there may be some discomfort or pain. However, unlike the experience in traditional CO2 treatments, you will feel quite comfortable immediately after a Fraxel re:pair treatment.

 

Post treatment care will depend on your type of skin and on the aggressiveness of the treatment however for all Fraxel treatments it is recommended  to 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.
