What is Fraxel?
Fraxel is a type of fractioned laser resurfacing device that is used to treat a variety of skin conditions, including acne scarring, pores, pigmentation, and wrinkles. It is also effective at improving skin texture and generally rejuvenating the skin. The laser can be tailored to each patient's unique skin type and condition and does not cause damage to surrounding tissue. For this reason, the Fraxel laser promotes a very fast recovery time.
How does the Fraxel laser work?
The Fraxel laser works by delivering microscopic columns to the skin cells, pushing pigment and damaged cells to the surface, and leaving the skin with a healthy, even glow. Specific wavelengths target various skin conditions, which means that different portions of the skin can be treated specifically to your needs.
What conditions can be treated with Fraxel?
The Fraxel laser can treat a variety of skin conditions, depending on the setting and type of Fraxel that is used. At Fiori Institute of Skin and Body, we use two types of non-ablative Fraxel lasers (1927 & 155), which are used to treat open pores, skin pigmentation, sun spots, sun damage, wrinkling, and acne scars. Our specialist laser team will advise you of the best Fraxel laser for your needs.
