Rejuvenate, Repair, and Restore Your Skin
Fraxel laser treatments help remove years from your appearance, resulting in a more vibrant look. Whether you have fine lines and wrinkle, sun damage, or other signs of aging, Fraxel laser provides visible results with fast recovery, so you can return to work and other activities with rejuvenated skin.
There are three types of Fraxel laser treatments, each with a different level of intensity, downtime, and results.
Fraxel re:pair – The most aggressive Fraxel treatment delivers surgery-like results for severely damaged skin. This level of treatment will require more downtime and after treatment wound care. The treatment tightens skin and removes signs of severe sun damage, wrinkles, fine lines, furrows, irregular texture, age spots/sunspots.
Fraxel re:store – A less aggressive treatment and the most popular Fraxel repair treatment, this is designed to resurface damaged skin and uncover youthful skin with very little downtime and minimal impact to your daily routine. Used to treat fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes, age spots/sunspots, melasma, Actinic Keratoses, acne scars, and surgical scars. 3-6 treatments may be necessary to achieve desired results.
Fraxel re:fine – The most gentle option, this is a cosmetic procedure that treats minor skin damage, age spots/sunspots, pigment irregularities, uneven skin tone and lines around the eyes with no downtime. 3-6 treatments may be necessary to achieve desired results.
When considering the various treatments, you and your skincare professional should consider the trade-off between downtime vs. results to determine the best option that fits your skin condition and lifestyle.
How It Works
Fraxel treatment is very precise, targeting just a tiny area at a time with microscopic laser columns, leaving surrounding tissue intact. These laser columns stimulate the natural healing process in the skin which stiulates the production of collagen and elastin, resulting in a younger, smoother, healthier skin.
- The epidermis—the top layer of skin
- The dermis—deeper layers of skin that contain collagen and elastin
- Microscopic laser columns—rejuvenating skin from the inside out
- Under the epidermis is a system of collagen and elastin – proteins that keep the skin youthful and tight. As we age and expose our skin to the sun and other sources of damage, these proteins deteriorate faster than the body can rebuild them. As a result, them skin will begin to sag and show damage such as wrinkles, fine lines or dark spots.

Is Fraxel for you?
Fraxel laser treatments may not be for all skin types. Those with Asian, African-American, or Latino skin types have more melanin (pigment) than those with Caucasian skin. That means they are more likely to experience discoloration or scarring from laser treatments. However, unlike conventional laser treatments, Fraxel targets the water in the skin, not the melanin, making it a safe and effective remedy for everyone.
Either way, we encourage you to consult your skincare professional before opting for this treatment.
