WHAT IS FRAXEL | 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 laser columns—each just one-tenth the diameter of a hair follicle. Then your body takes care of the rest. The laser 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 include collagen and elastin
* Microscopic laser 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 sun 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 laser treatment can help. Microscopic laser 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 laser 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.

Add it up, and Fraxel treatment is in a class all its own. There's simply nothing else like it for safely, effectively improving the appearance of your skin and creating a renewed sense of confidence.
No matter your age, sex or skin color,
Fraxel laser treatment can uncover your youthful skin buried within.
For men and women of all ages.
Whether you're in your 30s and just starting to see wrinkles…
Or in your 60s or older with deeper lines and loose skin…
Or somewhere in between…
The Fraxel family of treatments has an option for your unique skin.
For all skin colors.
Since African-American, Latino and Asian skin types generally have more melanin (pigment) than Caucasian skin, they’ve traditionally been at a higher risk for discoloration and scarring with many conventional laser treatments. But unlike these other procedures, Fraxel treatment precisely targets water in the skin, not melanin, and therefore may be safe and effective for all skin colors.
On and off the face.
Because the technology is so precise, Fraxel treatment works not only on the face, but also on delicate skin areas like the neck, chest and hands.
