Laser skin rejuvenation is one of the five most popular nonsurgical cosmetic procedures performed in the United States. The laser du jour for skin rejuvenation is Fraxel. There are four varieties including Fraxel re:fine, Fraxel re:store, Fraxel Dual and Fraxel re:pair.

The Fraxel laser treats a mere fraction of the skin's surface. In fact, only 15 to 30 percent of the skin is affected by Fraxel laser treatment.  Fraxel skin rejuvenation creates tiny wounds in the deeper layer of the skin (dermis). Each wound is surrounded by untreated skin, helping to repair the treated area via a controlled wound-healing process. The epidermis remains undamaged while the deeper layer begins to heal. Old skin cells slough off and the skin gradually repairs itself, encouraging collagen regeneration.


A protein found in connective tissue, collagen maintains the skin's integrity, but breaks down with advancing age. The breakdown of collagen can lead to the development of wrinkles, lines and folds in the skin. Regenerating collagen, however, can improve skin elasticity, tone and appearance.

A candidate for Fraxel laser rejuvenation are people who have age spots, sun damage, acne scars, wrinkles near the eye, and stretch marks.  If so, you may be a great candidate.

Fraxel laser therapy is approved for a variety of rejuvenating treatments, including the shrinking of large pores. It is the first and only laser approved for treatment of melasma (the mask of pregnancy), a condition marked by brown patches on both sides of the face, including the cheeks, bridge of nose, forehead and upper lip. Fraxel therapy can be used to treat the neck, chest and hands.

Preparing for Fraxel Laser

Our Practitioner will clean your skin, after which a topical anesthetic will be applied approximately one hour before initiating Fraxel laser treatment. When the procedure begins, you will likely feel slight pressure with each pulse of the laser.  The treatment normally takes a half hour or less to complete,  depending on the size of the treated area.

Following Fraxel treatment, your skin will be pink for a few days. This laser skin rejuvenation treatment involves little down-time, meaning you can go from your doctor's office right back to your office. You may feel like you have a sunburn. Some people develop a slight tan a few days after treatment.  Multiple treatments are frequently necessary and are done once a month, but the exact number of Fraxel treatments needed to achieve your desired results will vary.

It's necessary to keep the skin moisturized after treatment with the Fraxel laser. Sun protection with an SPF of 30 or above is necessary after tx and should be re-applied through out the day with long periods of sun exposure and/or activity. Make up can be worn to camouflage excess pinkness that is a temporary expected result of fraxel. The full results of the 1927 wavelength, used for the treatment of sun damage can be seen in 7 days. The full results of the 1550 wavelength, used for the treatment of acne scars, crepey skin, and fine lines, can be seen after multiple treatments, at 4 week intervals. The number of treatments necessary varies from person to person and can be determined by on of our practitioners.

Fraxel for the Lips


The Fraxel Laser is a resurfacing laser that is used to restore damaged, wrinkled skin back to smooth, younger looking skin.  Fraxel is typically performed on the full face to achieve even, consistent results and is done in a series of 4 treatments performed at one month intervals.  Each Fraxel treatment consists of first prepping the skin with microdermabrasion, numbing the skin with topical numbing cream then performing the Fraxel treatment. 

With each treatment, the Fraxel Laser thermally damages the skin so that it is replaced with brand new skin over the weeks and months that follow. 

After the treatment, the skin appears red like a sunburn and mild to moderate swelling can develop.  Redness and swelling (if it occurs) typically last 3-5 days.  Results from Fraxel treatments begin to be apparent as soon as 3-4 weeks after the first treatment and continue to improve for up to 6 months after the fourth and final Fraxel treatment is completed.  Fraxel produces skin that looks like new with fewer lines, wrinkles, spots, scars, and imperfections.
