About the Fraxel, the original fractional skin resurfacing treatment

Fraxel is the inventor of fractional aesthetic skin resurfacing. It uses two different lasers to penetrate below the skin’s surface, addressing skin imperfections, such as wrinkles, age spots, and scarring. The laser’s light energy stimulates your skin’s collagen, activating skin cells below to surface to help them smooth out fine lines and wrinkles. Fraxel only treats your targeted areas so the results are focused and healing is quicker.

How does Fraxel work?

The Fraxel DUAL laser treat aging and sun-damaged skin with microscopic laser beams called MTZs. These tiny beams penetrate deep below your skin’s surface to assist in the remodelling of your natural collagen. Since the Fraxel laser only treats a targeted tissue area at a time, it leaves your surrounding tissue undisturbed, promoting faster healing time. The Fraxel DUAL laser treatment resurfaces your skin by activating the growth of new skin cells from the inside out.
