What is it?

Fraxel treatment is a revolutionary laser treatment that helps to dramatically improve your skin texture and appearance, removing years from your appearance and dramatically improving the appearance of lines, wrinkles and acne scars.

It is a safe and non-invasive procedure.  Fraxel is the gold standard in cutting edge technology for treatment of fine lines and wrinkles, pigmentation, acne scarring and some stretch marks.

How does it work?

The technology is revolutionary.  Fraxel treatment can precisely treat thousands of microscopic areas of skin with pinpoint laser beams that penetrate deep within the skin to eliminate old, damaged skin cells and stimulate the body's own production of new cells for fresh, healthy, glowing skin.

Fraxel treatment has been intentionally designed to target 5-50% of the skin's surface, leaving the rest intact to quickly heal the treated areas.

The approach is precise, safe and effective even on delicate areas.

You should notice an immediate result after treatment, with softer skin and a more even skin tone.  However, as the body regenerates skin cells, there will also be progressive results over 3-6 months as the deeper layers of skin continue to heal.

Depending on your requirements, treatments are normally a course of 3-5 sessions spaced 4-8 weeks apart.

Immediately after treatment your skin will be a little red f but this generally settles down over a short period of time. The burning sensation settles over 4 to 6 hours.  The feeling is like having a bit too much sun.

A series of treatments is advisable to build up maximum impact.  This repeated stimulation of collagen production resurfaces the top surface of the skin.

Unlike other LASER treatments, Fraxel works by treating a fraction of your skin at a time (hence the name Fraxel).  Due to the accuracy of the Fraxel LASER therefore, the downtime is minimizedto 3 to 5 days.

The industry standard for fractional laser skin resurfacing

The Fraxel laser has a strong track record of research, FDA clearances and proven results. With a worldwide reputation for remarkable results and minimal downtime, it has the endorsement of renowned physicians and the attention of consumers, who ask for Fraxel by name.

What does Fraxel treat?

Conditions that Fraxel can treat with impressive results include:

Wrinkles and lines

  • Surgical and acne scars
  • Age spots / sun spots
  • Acne treatment - Fraxel treatment restores damaged skin on the surface and treats deep into the skin to stimulate collagen remodeling in order to improve the elasticity, texture and tone of your damaged skin while keeping your healthy tissue intact.
  • Melasma - brown spots / pregnancy mask - Melasma appears as irregular patches of brown skin on the forehead, cheeks, upper lip and nose. Fraxel treatment has FDA approval for significantly reducing melasma where other treatments have failed.
  • Skin resurfacing - the skin's texture, colour, pores and tightness can all be improved to provide fresh, healthy and glowing skin as Fraxel's microscopic laser columns penetrate deep into the skin to trigger the body's natural healing process, replacing damaged tissue with younger, healthier skin—all while keeping the surrounding tissue intact.
  • Stretch marks - after pregnancy or weight loss - Fraxel lasers are used to stimulate new collagen growth and fill the stretch marks  from deep within. As the new collagen thickens and plumps the skin, it fills in the stretch mark.  Dramatic results can be seen in just one treatment.
