Fraxel® is a well-known brand of fractionated laser used for the treatment of a variety of skin conditions. Fraxel® provides a safe and effective treatment with almost no downtime, allowing you to return to routine activities the very same day.
Whether you have mild to moderate skin damage, the most severe skin damage, or you just want to maintain youthful looking skin, there’s a Fraxel® treatment for you. The Fraxel® laser have FDA clearances for the following skin conditions:
- Fine lines around the eyes
- Age spots/sunspots
- Acne scars and surgical scars
- Melasma (mask of pregnancy)
- Discoloration and uneven pigmentation
- Sun-induced redness
- Irregular texture
Fraxel® Skin Resurfacing
Your skin’s texture, color and tightness can diminish over the years, particularly from sun exposure and smoking. To resurface your skin and correct imperfections, there are many options including chemical peels. But unlike other remedies, Fraxel® laser treatment has been approved by the FDA to safely, gently and effectively resurface your skin from the inside out. That means improved texture, more even tone and smoother skin.
Fraxel® for Wrinkles
Wrinkles can develop most anywhere, but the skin around your eyes is especially vulnerable because it’s more delicate and tends to age more rapidly than skin on other areas of the body. These wrinkles around the eyes are also called “crow’s feet” or “periorbital wrinkles.”
Fraxel® treatment is a more gentle and effective option, which has been approved by the FDA to improve the appearance of wrinkles, including those on the sensitive areas around the eyes. Fraxel® treatment is different because it treats one fraction of tissue at a time with thousands of microscopic laser columns. These columns stimulate a natural healing process that works from the inside out, expediting the production of collagen and elastin, which results in tighter, fresher, more youthful-looking skin.
Fraxel® for Scars
Scars are depressions or indentations in the skin that occur after a medical condition such as acne or after a surgical incision. Especially when they’re on the face or other visible areas, scars can carry the stigma of adolescent acne long after the acne is gone, or they can serve as unpleasant reminders of a past surgery.
The FDA has approved Fraxel® treatment to safely and gently reduce the appearance of acne scars and surgical scars.
Fraxel® for Age Spots and Sun Spots
When you’re in the sun, your body reacts by producing a pigment called melanin to protect your skin from ultraviolet rays. If you spend a lot of time in the sun, your skin may overreact by producing too much melanin. That increased pigmentation can result in age spots, which fall into a broad medical category called “pigmented lesions.”
Fraxel® treatment is FDA-approved to effectively treat age spots and other pigment irregularities – on and off the face. And because the Fraxel® laser treats one fraction of tissue at a time while leaving healthy skin intact, Fraxel® treatment delivers remarkable improvement with minimal downtime.
Fraxel® for Melasma
Melasma – which is most common in women and affects about 45 million people worldwide – appears as irregular patches of brown skin on the forehead, cheeks, upper lip and nose. Like most other pigmented lesions, melasma is not dangerous, but it can be a self-confidence crusher, prompting many women to hide behind a mask of make-up.
Fraxel® treatment has received FDA approval for significantly reducing melasma where other treatments have failed – at the same time minimizing downtime or discomfo
