What to Expect
Before the day of your treatment, we will discuss what to expect during your Fraxel, and give you prescriptions that you will need to fill prior to your procedure. Photos will be taken prior to your procedure to track your progress. A topical numbing cream will be applied for your comfort.
During the treatment, you will feel some stinging like rubber band snaps in the treatment area as well as heat that we will cool with cold air.
This procedure includes complimentary Pronox.
Your face will feel hot like a sunburn. This will last for 2-4 hours. Please follow our carefully designed post-treatment instructions for the best results. We will give you all your post-care for optimal healing.
Before & After
How does Fraxel work?
Unlike earlier laser devices, the Fraxel Dual Laser System treats microscopic volumes of skin with each unique pulse, leaving the surrounding area intact for faster healing compared with traditional CO2 laser resurfacing.
How long will my appointment take?
Our trained nurses will take pictures and apply a topical numbing for 20 minutes prior to your procedure beginning. Once the treatment begins, it will take about 40 minutes.
Does Fraxel hurt?
Patients experience some mild discomfort during a Fraxel procedure. Afterwards, your face will feel hot like a sunburn. This will last for 2-4 hours
Is Fraxel safe?
The Fraxel is safe in the hands of a trained professional. It works best on skin types I-III. If you have darker skin color, we may want to do a test spot to make sure that this laser is the right choice for you and start you on a skin regimen to get your skin ready.
When will I start seeing results?
You will see some improvement within 1 week, but more results will be seen after 3 months when the collagen starts rebuilding.
Am I a candidate?
If you have concerns over texture, pore size, acne scarring, fine lines and wrinkles, Fraxel may be right for you. This laser is safer to use on lighter skin types.
