Fraxel® is a resurfacing laser treatment that reduces the visual appearance of sunspots, wrinkles and rough skin by eliminating old, damaged skin cells. By addressing a variety of skin problems, Fraxel® laser treatment will keep your skin looking as great as you feel. Fraxel®  is flexible – every treatment is customized to suit your needs. Fraxel® technology is the industry standard for skin rejuvenation and resurfacing and it is Health Canada and FDA approved. It is safe to use for almost all skin types and can be used on several areas of the body.

How does Fraxel work?

Fraxel® laser treatment uses pinpoint laser beams that penetrate beneath the skin’s surface to eliminate damaged skin cells and stimulate the body’s natural healing process. As the collagen production is stimulated in the deeper skin layers, this will result in improvement of strength and structure of the skin. The treated skin will keep improving over time by this stimulation. Results may vary and multiple sessions may be necessary to achieve the best results.

 

It is important to combine Fraxel with a medical grade skincare regime in order to effectively prepare your skin for the treatment as well as maintain results.

What can I expect?

A thin layer of gel is applied to the skin and a Fraxel® hand piece is guided gently over the skin in a series of overlapping strokes. After the treatment most patients report feeling similar to having gotten too much sun. This usually disappears in 1-3 hours. Redness and swelling can persist for 2-3 days. We will provide you with instructions regarding skincare to help your skin through this phase. It is very important to avoid the sun during the healing phase. After a couple of days your skin will have a bronze look to it and will start with some minor peeling and flaking. This is the skin’s way of getting rid of the old damaged skin cells. Fraxel® treatment stimulates the body’s own natural healing process which replaces the damaged skin with fresh, glowing, healthy skin! Improvement of the skin continues for up to three months after treatment.
