Fraxel™ Laser Rejuvenation is a “fractional” treatment that produces thousands of deep, tiny columns in your skin, called microscopic thermal zones. Fraxel is “fractional” in that it intensively treats portions of the skin without affecting any of the surrounding tissue, which reduces healing time and promotes the skin’s natural process for creating new, healthier tissue to replace the damaged cells.
This “fractional” treatment allows the skin to heal much faster than if the entire area were treated at once, using the body’s natural healing process to create new, healthy tissue to replace skin imperfections.
As the original treatment in the Fraxel family, Fraxel re:store™ Laser Rejuvenation quickly rejuvenates your skin, improving mild to moderate imperfections with minimal down time.
Fraxel re:store™ treatment has FDA clearances for: Wrinkles, Acne/surgical scars, Sun/age spots, melasma (irregular patches of brown skin on the forehead, cheeks, upper lip and nose)
With Fraxel re:store™ treatment, it’s easy to renew your inner beauty. The procedure takes about 30 minutes, and most people return to routine activities within the next 1-2 days. Most men and women experience immediate results and see the most benefit over four to six treatments.
How are Fraxel re:store™ Laser Treatments performed?
To prepare your skin for treatment, it will be cleansed. A topical anesthetic ointment is applied to the treatment area approximately 60 minutes prior to treatment in order for the anesthetic to take full effect. The procedure takes between 20 to 25 minutes for a full face. The anesthetic ointment is washed off immediately after the treatment.
Is Fraxel™ Laser Treatment painful?
Most patients describe the treatment as having a “prickling” sensation. The topical anesthetic ointment and air cooling alleviates most discomfort.
How much do the treatments cost?
Treatments vary from $475-$2,500 per treatment.
