Fraxel® Laser Skin Resurfacing

Fraxel Logo
Do you have etched-in wrinkles that do not go away even after BOTOX® Cosmetic or other cosmetic procedures? Wish you could have a smoother and more even skin tone without excessive downtime?

At Radiance Medical Spa we utilize the Fraxel® system for non-ablative fractional laser skin resurfacing. Fraxel® is an ideal treatment for:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Sun-damaged skin
  • Acne scarring
  • Surgical scars

The Fraxel® can be safely used to treat men and women of all ages, as well as on all areas of the body. Fraxel® is a dual fractionated laser that utilizes a 1550nm or 1927nm laser to treat different depths of the skin. The two depths are not treated during the same appointment. It is ideal to discuss your skin and aesthetic goals with your practitioner prior to treatment.

The 1550nm laser allows for deep skin penetration, which allows for stimulation of new collagen through the healing process of the skin treated. This laying down of new collagen leads to reduction of wrinkles, skin tightening, and improved skin texture.

The 1927nm laser penetrates the skin more superficially, allowing for improved skin tone by treating stubborn pigment.

The Fraxel® laser system is a fractionated, non-ablative laser system—meaning that the entirety of the dermis is not treated, but only a small portion. As more healthy tissue is able to be left untreated, this means faster healing, less discomfort, and less downtime.

Fraxel® may be used with a topical local anesthetic alone, or we also offer ProNox patient-administered, inhaled nitrous, and oxygen analgesia.

Treatment Time

30-minute treatment time. 60-minute numbing time prior.

Recommended Frequency of Treatments

We recommend a series of 3-5 treatments, one month apart for best results. To maintain results, we often recommend a single treatment every 6 months to a year following your initial series of treatments. The effects will last a varying amount of time depending on each patient’s genetics, continued skin care, sun exposure, and other factors.

Medications to Avoid Prior to Treatment

Please discuss your exact medication list with us, and be sure to tell us if you are taking any antibiotics. Also, it is important to let us know if you are affected by a condition called porphyria, which causes light sensitivity. You should avoid self-tanners, sun exposure (tanning), and photosensitizing medications before treatment. It is also helpful to take gentle care of your skin for a few days before and after treatment.

Possible Side Effects

Tenderness, redness, or swelling for 1-7 days is common. A pins and needles sensation is common during the procedure. Patients MUST avoid direct sun exposure for 3-4 weeks after the treatment and wear sunblock every day for at least a month after the last treatment.
