A fractional laser, Fraxel® rejuvenates sub-surface skin cells and prompts collagen production with light energy. This non-ablative treatment delivers incredible results, improving texture, tone, and radiance for skin that has sun damage, scarring, or has started to show signs of aging.
Fraxel treatment uses the science of microscopic laser columns to reach a small portion of tissue at a time while your body does the rest after its natural healing response is trigger. It is gentle and non-invasive, leading to minimal recovery and downtime with noticeable results visible after a single treatment.
