What is Fraxel

Fraxel is a revolutionary treatment that helps you remove years from your appearance and regain a more youthful look.

Whether you have sun damage, wrinkles or other signs of age,Fraxel treatment delivers remarkable results with fast recovery. So you can quickly return to work or other activities with renewed skin and renewed confidence.

The range of Fraxel treatments vary in aggressiveness, downtime, number of procedures needed and results. The most aggressive treatment, Fraxel re:pair can produce dramatic improvement for severely damaged skin. This is a single treatment procedure but will require more downtime and after treatment wound care. Less aggressive treatments like Fraxel re:store can produce significant results for mild to moderately damaged skin over the course of 3 to 6 treatments. Typically, there is no after treatment wound care with these treatments and downtime is minimal.

How it works

Fraxel skin science

Think of your skin as a digital photo that is delicately touched up one spot at a time. Fraxel treatment, likewise, affects a fraction of tissue at a time with thousands of microscopic columns – each just one tenth the diameter of a hair follicle. Then your body takes care of the rest. The columns stimulate a natural healing process that works from the inside out replacing damaged tissue with younger, smoother, healthier skin.

The science of Fraxel treatment involves three key components:

  • The epidermis – the outer layer of our skin.
  • The dermis – sub-layers of skin that includes collagen and elastin.
  • Microscopic columns – rebuilding skin from the inside out.

Under the epidermis is a network of collagen and elastin which are proteins that keep your skin youthful and tight. But as you age and get more exposure those proteins simply break down faster than your body can rebuild them. As a result, your skin may start to sag and show damage like wrinkles, lines or spots.

This is where Fraxel treatments can help. Microscopic columns penetrate deep into the dermis to create tiny wounds which trigger your body’s natural response system to heal those wounds. This process expedites your body’s remodeling of collagen and elastin which results in tighter, fresher, more youthful- looking skin. This is how Fraxel treatment creates new skin from the inside out.

Just as important are the areas of skin that Fraxel treatment doesn’t touch. Because the treatment is so precise, the columns target only a fraction of skin at a time leaving the surrounding tissue intact. This ‘fractional’ treatment allows your body to heal the skin faster than if the entire area were treated at once.

Fraxel re:pair®

Repairing your aged and damaged skin.
All in a single treatment.

Over the years, your skin is exposed to sun, air pollution, stress, fatigue and lifestyle factors such as smoking, which can affect your skin’s texture, color and tightness. Fraxel re:pair® is a revolutionary treatment to correct deeper wrinkles, tighten skin and remove years from your appearance.

A traditional CO2 removes the entire surface of your skin, creating higher risks for potential side effects and a longer recovery time.

Fraxel re:pair® uses patented fractional CO2 technology which creates microscopic columns. These columns target only a fraction of the skin at a time, leaving the surrounding tissue intact. This “fractional” treatment allows your body to heal the skin much faster than if the entire area were treated at once.

What Fraxel re:pair® treats

Fraxel re:pair treatment is a revolutionary new way to correct aged and damaged skin-without the degree of risks, prolonged downtime or adverse reactions of non-fractional ablative procedures. Instead, you get dramatic results in a single treatment with fast recovery. Fraxel re:pair treatment has FDA clearances for many indications on and off the face, including:

  • Wrinkles
  • Irregular texture
  • Age spots/sunspots
  • Sun-induced redness

Remarkable results, remarkably simple

  • Dramatic results in a single treatment
  • Smoother, more even skin tone and texture
  • Softening of deep frown lines and wrinkles
  • Improved appearance of redness caused by sun damage

Depending on the aggressiveness of treatment, the procedure takes 20 minutes for a full face, with most men and women returning to routine activities after a week.
